Latta comes to painful rescue as Tar Heels nip Purdue

Monday, March 27, 2006

Ivory Latta crumpled to the floor when the pain became unbearable. But by then, North Carolina's season had been saved, rescued by the teeny, tenacious point guard who refused to lose. With her left leg cramping, Latta made a driving layup with 2.8 seconds left and top-ranked North Carolina moved on in the NCAA tournament with a 70-68 win Sunday against Purdue in the semifinals of the Cleveland Regional.
