For the eighth time in nine meetings, the Texas Longhorns have topped the North Carolina Tar Heels; this time to capture the Maui Invitation Championship.

The Longhorns owned a 12-point halftime lead, but in a game that came down to the final seconds, senior point guard Matt Coleman connected on a step-back fadeaway to deliver what became the game-winning bucket, 69-67, with 0.1 seconds remaining.
