Laura Broomfield had 12 points and Tierra Ruffin-Pratt and Waltiea Rolle 10 apiece for the Tar Heels.
Caitlin Hollifield and Laura Sanchez paced the 1-3 Catamounts (1-3) with eight points apiece.
The Tar Heels’ next game is on Friday against Washington State in the first round of the Rainbow Wahine Classic in Honolulu.
