MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Allisha Gray and Diamond DeShields scored 20 apiece, as No. 14 North Carolina hit the century mark for the second straight game, in a 124-41 victory over New Orleans on Monday night.

Coming off a 51-point win against Charleston Southern on Saturday, North Carolina (9-2) set a school record by scoring 124 points. The previous record was 121, set in 1985. It was North Carolina's first back-to-back 100-point games since the 2009-10 season.

The Tar Heels scored their 17th point before Dannisha Jackson got New Orleans on the board at the 14:17 mark. North Carolina led 30-2 at the 11:27 mark and pushed it to 72-18 at halftime.

New Orleans (0-9) also gave up 100-plus points earlier this season in a 111-38 loss to Mississippi State on Nov. 17.

Octavia Wilson led New Orleans with 21 points, as the Privateers made just 27.8 percent of its shots.
