PITTSBURGH -- The unthinkable upset not only seemed possible, it was beginning to look likely. Notre Dame sensed it was happening, and North Carolina's players were looking tentative and worried.And then the Tar Heels staged a game-saving 15-0 rally that came out of nowhere and saved the season of one of the prime contenders for the NCAA women's championship.LaToya Pringle led the frantic comeback and Ivory Latta made six free throws in the final minute as top-seeded North Carolina avoided the upset and rallied to defeat Notre Dame 60-51 Tuesday night in the second round of the women's NCAA Tournament.Latta scored 17 points despite an off shooting night -- 4-of 12 -- and Pringle added 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Tar Heels (32-3) as the nation's highest-scoring team was slowed considerably but still managed to recover after trailing 38-31 with 13 1/2 minutes remaining.
