Chansky’s Notebook: Never Over ‘Til It’s Over

Is the 58-0 streak over versus Clemson? Pretty much every UNC basketball fan knows that Clemson has never won a game in Chapel Hill. Not once in the 93 years the Tigers have been coming here to play hoops, from Bynum Hall to the Tin Can, all the way to Carmichael to the Dean Dome. Since the ACC began in 1953, the game in Chapel Hill has been close a few times. (Chapelboro.com)

UNC Baseball Checks in at No. 6 in D1Baseball Preseason Top 25

The latest round of preseason college baseball polls was released on Tuesday, with D1Baseball.com ranking UNC at No. 6 to start the 2018 season. Despite having three players taken in the first 36 picks of last summer’s MLB Draft, coach Mike Fox’s Tar Heels are expected to once again boast elite-level pitching with enough talented young hitters to get the job done.

Roy Williams Live: Garrison Brooks Taking Lineup Change in Stride

Being removed from the starting lineup as a freshman can affect any player, but UNC coach Roy Williams says Garrison Brooks has handled the move well. “I told him, ‘You’re still going to play,’” Williams said on his radio show Monday. “I think I’d be stupid if I just didn’t play him, because you’re not going to get better if you’re not given opportunities.” (Inside Carolina)

Carolina Insider Podcast: Notre Dame Recap, Clemson & More

Recap the one-point win at Notre Dame and look ahead to Tuesday's game against Clemson in the latest episode of the Carolina Insider podcast. Hosts Jones Angell of the Tar Heel Sports Network and Adam Lucas of GoHeels.com also describe what it's like watching the 2005 NCAA championship game with Vince Gill in their story time segment. (GoHeels.com)

Inside The Numbers: Theo Pinson’s Impact

Theo Pinson’s overall impact (irrespective of position) has been immense this season from a plus/minus perspective. The Tar Heels are +226 in 519 minutes with him on the court, and -19 in 201 minutes with him on the bench through 18 games. During Pinson’s court time, UNC has been 27 points per 100 possessions more efficient than it has without him in the lineup. (Inside Carolina)

Will it end at 58?

If the Tigers hope to emerge victorious Tuesday, it will be because they shot the ball well, took care of the ball — not because they were concerned with what the Tar Heels were doing. “You're going to have to make some threes against them. You're going to have to have a good shooting night, take care of the ball -- it's not anything specific to Clemson,” Brownell said. (Orangeburg Times & Democrat)

The long climb from 1-2 in ACC play

The late Frank McGuire once told me “In a coach’s life, you’ve got to be good and you’ve got to be lucky.” The head coach was giving perspective on UNC’s 32-0 championship season of 1957. McGuire, of course, was Irish, and Irish are supposed to be lucky. But Saturday in South Bend, UNC got all the luck. How else to describe T.J. Gibbs’ dramatic final attempts at victory? (WRAL Sports Fan)

Tar Heels could have tough task keeping home streak vs. Clemson

UNC’s unprecedented dominance in homecourt outings against Clemson could be in danger tonight. Clemson arrives holding a No. 20 national ranking to take on the 15th-ranked Tar Heels, who are 58-0 all-time at home in the series. “Clemson is coming in having beaten some good teams,” Roy Williams said Monday. “Probably the best team Brad has had in a few years.” (Burlington Times News)

By the numbers: Clemson’s futility in Chapel Hill

North Carolina’s 58-game home winning streak over Clemson is the longest in NCAA history. The No. 20 Tigers return to the Smith Center on Tuesday night to take on the 15th-ranked Tar Heels and have another chance to break “The Streak." The Tigers are winless (0-58) in road games with the Tar Heels. UNC, by the way, has a 39-16 record at Clemson. (Charlotte Observer)

James Worthy on All-Star Memories, Michael Jordan's Competitiveness

James Worthy: "Michael Jordan doesn't take anything lightly. It could be a game of backgammon or it could be the NBA Finals, they're treated the same. This All-Star Game, that was his platform. He wanted to be the best, he wanted to play against the best, and for him, the game was on. I first met him on a recruiting trip. That was the beginning of a great friendship." (The Post Game)

Montreal Alouettes release Darian Durant

Darian Durant’s time with the Montreal Alouettes has ended, the team announced Monday after releasing the veteran quarterback. The 35-year-old was acquired by the Als last January. Before going to Montreal, Durant spent 10 seasons with the Riders, guiding them to a Grey Cup Championship in 2013. In his career, Durant has thrown for 31,740 yards and 167 touchdowns. (CFL.ca)

So long, TarAggie, you left a good mark

Rod Broadway officially retired as head football coach at North Carolina A&T State University this week, and with no apologies, even to soon-to-be NC Sports Hall of Famer Bill Hayes, I’ll go ahead and say it: Next to Eddie Robinson, Broadway may go down as one of the greatest coaches in black college football when looking at his total body of work. (Roanoke-Chowan News-Herald)

James Michael McAdoo Released by Philly

James Michael McAdoo was released by the Sixers on Monday. The Sixers reached an agreement with Demetrius Jackson, so they'll part ways with McAdoo to free up a roster spot. The former UNC standout, who spent his first three NBA seasons with Golden State, appeared in three games for the Sixers this season while spending time in the G-League. (CBS Sports)

Harrison Barnes: 7 Questions with David Brown

Harrison Barnes: "My latest interview is with one of Dallas’s most respected people, the former police chief David Brown. Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which felt like the right time to share my conversation with Chief Brown. This year is the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s death. Since I was a kid, I was in awe of Dr. King’s commitment to civil disobedience and human dignity." (The Players' Tribune)

UNC vs. Clemson Preview

Last season’s leading rebounders, Sidy Djitte and Jaron Blossomgame, both were gone from the Clemson program with no apparent successor ready to step into their roles. However, through 17 games, the Tigers are an even better rebounding team this season. The increased productivity on the glass can be attributed to Elijah Thomas and Donte Grantham. (Inside Carolina)

Janelle Bailey Receives 5th ACC Rookie of the Week Honor

(GoHeels.com)

Can Clemson finally end 0-58 streak at North Carolina?

It is a stat that is well documented. Clemson has never defeated North Carolina in men’s basketball in Chapel Hill. The Tigers are 0-58 all-time, coming close several times but never being able to end the streak. Clemson will get its first opportunity since Dec. 30, 2015 on Tuesday when the teams meet at 7 p.m. in the Dean Smith Center. Could this be the year? (The State)

Thought for the Day
I would never recruit a player who yells at his teammates, disrespected his high school coach, or scores 33 points a game and his team goes 10-10.
