CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Diamond DeShields scored a game-high 16 points, Jessica Washington and Stephanie Mavunga each added 14 as No. 12 North Carolina rolled past Coppin State 91-51 Sunday.

The Tar Heels (4-1) pulled ahead early with a 12-0 run to take their first double-digit lead capped off by a Washington 3-pointer. They had a 46-23 advantage at the break and led by as much as 45 during the second half.

Mavunga and DeShields each hauled in seven rebounds, and Washington hit four 3-pointers and dished out five assists. Danielle Butts finished with 12 points and nine boards.

Coppin State (2-3) was held to just 30.4 percent from the field and were out-rebounded 33-52 by North Carolina. They held an early 6-3 lead after an Ashle Craig jumper, but couldn't keep pace with the Tar Heels.

Amber Griffin led the Eagles with 12 points and Jordan Swails had nine with seven rebounds.
