Video: UNC Basketball - Everywhere is a Gym

The North Carolina men's basketball team likes to take full advantage of the beautiful weather in Chapel Hill, often taking their off-season workout to the Dean E. Smith Center parking lot. This video looks back on #ThrowbackThursday at one of their recent outdoor workouts. Read More...

Chansky’s Notebook: Michael Jordan Scores 63 On The Legend

Basketball fans, do you know what today is? What does the number 32 mean to you? For old-timers, 32 was Billy Cunningham’s number. For the younger folks, it’s Luke Maye’s number. But there’s a third reason to keep 32 in mind. 32 years ago today, Michael Jordan, 1985 NBA Rookie of the Year, dropped 63 points on Larry Bird and the then Big 3 of the NBA. (Chapelboro.com)

UNC's Offensive Line Searching For Leadership

Former North Carolina offensive linemen Bentley Spain and Cam Dillard both are gone, so a unit that must have strong leadership as part of its chemistry building process is searching for a vocal front man or two. And with William Sweet still rehabilitating from a knee injury last September, fast-improving Charlie Heck might be stepping into that role for the Tar Heels. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Mitch Trubisky oozes enthusiasm to work with Bears’ ‘brilliant offensive minds’

Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky and new coach Matt Nagy are still in the getting-to-know-you phase. But all indications are that things have gotten off to a good start, even as Trubisky works through bumps like a pair of interceptions Wednesday. Trubisky praised Nagy’s energy and passion. Nagy lauded Trubisky for his “immense focus.” (Chicago Tribune)

Veteran catcher Chris Iannetta returns to his roots

Chris Iannetta on signing with Colorado as a free agent this offseason: "Denver is probably one of the places that I feel like I could live full time. That was the first attraction. The second was how good the team is. There was probably two jobs, maybe three that I really wanted. It was either the Diamondbacks or the Rockies. It ended up being a no-brainer." (Mile High Sports)

From Chapel Hill to Stillwater: Hayley Carter embarks on tennis coaching career

After graduating from UNC, the plan for so long was for Hayley Carter to play tennis professionally, but life doesn’t always go according to plan. After Carter was injured in her first professional tournament, Oklahoma State coach Chris Young came calling. This time, it was Carter’s turn to celebrate, now as an assistant coach for the OSU women’s tennis team. (Ocolly.com)

Who killed Faith Hedgepeth? Crime show investigates unsolved Chapel Hill slaying.

One of the most puzzling — and most brutal — unsolved murders in the Triangle is getting attention from an Investigation Discovery (ID) true crime TV show this weekend. A two-hour episode airing at 10 p.m. Sunday on ID has investigators in Chapel Hill talking to police, Hedgepeth's parents, friend Marisol Rangel, Faith’s former boyfriend, and others. (Raleigh News & Observer)

UNC volleyball player Julia Scoles to transfer to Hawaii

Julia Scoles, a former outside hitter for the North Carolina volleyball team, announced her decision to transfer to the University of Hawaii and compete for its beach volleyball team on Thursday. The Mooresville, N.C., native played one full season as a Tar Heel, and she made the most of it. As a freshman in 2016, Scoles was named ACC Freshman of the Year. (Daily Tar Heel)

With Cam Johnson confirmed to return, UNC is shaping up for next season

If there was any question about whether Cameron Johnson would return to UNC or declare for the NBA draft, that was put to rest Wednesday. Losing Johnson would have been an unexpected loss. UNC is expected to return three starters from last season, and has two incoming top-20 recruits, who are both expected to compete for the remaining starting spots. (Charlotte Observer)

Injury Could Shelve UNC Tight End Brandon Fritts For The Season

North Carolina senior tight end Brandon Fritts has suffered a serious knee injury and is out indefinitely, which could mean the entire 2018 season, multiple sources confirmed to Tar Heel Illustrated. Fritts had knee surgery earlier this week stemming from an injury suffered in spring practice. There is nothing definitive at this time as to how long he will be out. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

A Case For The Naismith HOF: Rasheed Wallace?

Larry Fedora Pleased With North Carolina's QBs

UNC football coach Larry Fedora was asked during Thursday’s ACC coaches’ teleconference what the final verdict for his quarterbacks is this spring. Fedora, who isn’t one to gush much about anything, is pleased with Nathan Elliott and Chazz Surratt. “Both of them are better off than they were when they left off at the end of the season,” Fedora said. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

UNC Football Spring Game Uncertain Moving Forward

The decision by North Carolina not to hold a spring game this year may not be a one-time thing, according to UNC football coach Larry Fedora. “I don't know. It just depends on the team. We had a lot of young guys that needed a lot more reps this spring and so it just worked out better for us in this situation. But we'll make that decision each and every spring.” (Inside Carolina)

Climbing the bell tower with the Class of 2018

During Senior Week every year, members of UNC's senior class hike up the 128 steps inside the bell tower to sign their name on bricks inside. The UNC General Alumni Association has been hosting the event since 2003. “It’s so beautiful and it’s so sentimental,” said senior Stevie Coleman. “Taking it all in and really just getting to enjoy Carolina’s campus one last time.” (UNC.edu)

Roy Williams on the Masters, His Own Augusta Experiences

It is rare to get through one of Roy Williams' press conference without some sort of golf mention or making a connection between golf and basketball. Williams not only plays as much golf as he can during the offseason, but he watches a ton. The UNC head coach, who is entering his 16th season at the helm of the Tar Heels, loves Masters weekend. (Inside Carolina)

Chansky’s Notebook: Real Dean of ACC Basketball?

So was it Everett Case, Frank McGuire, Vic Bubas or Dean Smith who is most responsible for this treasure we call ACC Basketball? Each man has a good case for the title of “ACC godfather,” including Case. But since he passed the test of time, overlapped eras and rules changes in the game — and kept winning through it all — I’ll go with that guy Smith, the Dean. (Chapelboro.com)
