GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Talib Zanna had 19 points and a career-high 21 rebounds to help Pittsburgh beat No. 15 North Carolina 80-75 in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament quarterfinals Friday. James Robinson also scored a career-best 19 points for the fifth-seeded Panthers (25-8), who used a dominating start to build a huge lead before having to hold off a late rally by the fourth-seeded Tar Heels (23-9). Pittsburgh led by 20 points with 7:22 left before UNCs frantic comeback behind Marcus Paige, who scored 20 of his 27 points after halftime before fouling out with 25.4 seconds left. UNC got it to 78-75 on Nate Britts jumper with 11.4 seconds left but couldnt complete the comeback. James Robinson knocked down two free throws to make it a two-possession game again right after Britts score, then Lamar Patterson rebounded a hurried 3-pointer by James Michael McAdoo with 4.3 seconds left to essentially seal it. Now, after a dominating performance in Thursdays second round and a bumbling-but-successful finish Friday, the Panthers will face sixth-ranked and top-seeded Virginia in Saturdays semifinals. Zanna, a 6-foot-9 fifth-year senior, came within two rebounds of tying the single-game tournament rebounding record that had stood since 1959. He fouled out with 1:03 left. Zanna had 10 offensive rebounds -- one shy of UNCs team total -- and helped Pitt control the boards while taking a 21-6 edge in second-chance points against a team that was third in the league in rebounding margin for the regular season. With all those point-blank extra looks off offensive rebounds, Pitt shot 52 per cent for the game. North Carolina spent all day trying to recover from a terrible start. It missed 16 of 19 shots and fell behind 25-8, though its late comeback at least gave them some hope of sticking around Greensboro a little longer. North Carolina shot 42 per cent, though much of that production came after Pitt had built a 61-41 lead on Josh Newkirks three-point play midway through the second half. The Panthers have won five of six to pull out of a three-game losing streak that started to threaten their NCAA tournament chances, with this ranking as probably their best of the year. Now the Tar Heels are suddenly struggling. The Tar Heels started 0-3 in the ACC and stood at 1-4 before running off 12 straight wins, including a home win against Pittsburgh, to earn a top-four seed and double-round bye that came with it. But UNC didnt play well in the final two games of the streak and lost at Duke to close the regular season last weekend, sending them into Greensboro coming off their first loss since Jan. 20. The rebounding trouble was particularly alarming for UNC considering it managed just 20 rebounds in last weekends loss at Cameron Indoor Stadium. During one demoralizing second-half stretch, Zanna tipped in offensive rebounds on consecutive possessions andaction.Rebecca Adlington believes Great Britains Olympic swimming team can claim a decent haul of medals in Rio this summer. There are just 80 days to go until the Games and double Olympic gold medallist Adlington has high hopes for the British swimming squad.The swimming team are looking so good, Adlington told Sportswomen on Sky Sports News HQ. Youve obviously got Adam Peaty, James Guy and Siobhan-Marie OConnor - I really hope she gets a medal - and then Jazz Carlin and youve also got people like Fran Halsall on the team. We could see four to six medals as we have never really had that depth before. Hopefully if we are all on form, touch wood, we can pick up a lot of medals.World champions Peaty and Guy headline a 26-strong Team GB Olympic squad for Brazil which was selected following last months National Championships in Glasgow. The English pair will make their Olympic debuts in Rio, as will Welsh Commonwealth champion Carlin. Head coach Bill Furniss (left) and some of the GB swimmers (Siobhan-Marie OConnor centre) Sky Academy Sports Scholar OConnor also secured her spot on the team last month, but this will be the second Games for OConnor, who won World Championship bronze in the 200m individual medley in Russia last summer.Adlington has backed 20-year-old OConnor to perform well in Brazil, saying: We are going to see her go in the 200m in the medley and hopefully she can do well. She is in a tough event but she has a shot at a medal here.She has become a smart athlete with the way she races.dddddddddddd Shes a gutsy swimmer and thats what I love about her, she just gives it her all. She is such a passionate swimmer so hopefully she can pick up a medal in Rio. OConnor competes in the womens 200m individual medley at the British Swimming Championships in Glasgow Adlington was also full of praise for four-time Paralympic champion Ellie Simmonds.She said: With Ellie nothing is impossible, thats what Ive learnt. She is a hard worker who really wants to push herself and she wants to push for world records, not just for medals. I think she is going to be a huge success in the summer. Ellie Simmonds, four-time Paralympic champion Team GB will be looking to improve on a very disappointing Olympics at London in 2012 where the British swimmers failed to achieve their Olympic medal target of five, winning one silver and two bronzes, both of which went to Adlington.However, hopes for the summer will be high after a youthful squad achieved a record-breaking haul of medals at the 2015 World Championships in Kazan.
