Lucas: The Strong Man

We'd never seen this from Joel Berry: after his fifth turnover of the night against Virginia Tech, with his team down double digits, Berry's shoulders sagged as he ran back on defense. Berry has been an absolute rock for four years. In some ways, his body language was more shocking than UNC's 80-69 loss, a defeat that leaves them 1-3 on the road in the ACC. (GoHeels.com)

UNC women's basketball: The win of an era

The North Carolina women's basketball players flooded the court as one collective wave, sinking into each other's arms like newly crowned national champions. It was a celebration more befitting of March or April than January, but they reveled in victory all the same. They came together near midcourt as two distinct parties: those who laughed and those who cried. (Argyle Report)

Not enough sources: Tar Heels dry up on offense, struggle to slow down Hokies

A two-man offense didn’t cut it for North Carolina, which found out the hard way in Monday’s 80-69 loss to Virginia Tech at Cassell Coliseum. Take away 23 points apiece from Joel Berry and Luke Maye and there wasn’t much happening for the rest of the Tar Heels. “We took bad shots,” Maye said, while accepting blame for what he referred to as four missed layups. (Burlington Times News)

Virginia Tech Too Heavy a Burden for Joel Berry, Luke Maye

Two players can’t save a game alone, especially in a hostile ACC environment. That was the situation that Luke Maye and Joel Berry found themselves in Monday night at Cassell Coliseum. The duo combined for 46 points - each scoring 23 - on 19-of-35 shooting, but were left stranded and without support in No. 10 North Carolina’s 80-69 upset loss to Virginia Tech. (Inside Carolina)

Spenser Dalton: Thoughts on UNC vs. Virginia Tech

A whirlwind of bad hit the Tar Heels tonight. A slew of unforced errors, some hot shooting from VT, a road game after playing two days prior, low bench scoring and a few shooting woes ultimately meant the Tar Heels came up short. The next few days will be ample time to take a long hard look at the mistakes of tonight and review them in the film room and on the court. (Thoughts From a Walk-On)

Roy Williams Post-Virginia Tech Quotes

Roy Williams: "I feel the same way now I felt the last time I was in Virginia. The University of Virginia kicked our rear ends and I felt like that tonight. I think Buzz had his team much more ready to play than I had my team. They were more aggressive physically and mentally. We thought we could have an advantage inside. They scored 32 points to our 26 in the lane." (Inside Carolina)

Virginia Tech Dominates No. 10 UNC in Blacksburg, Ends Tar Heels’ Four-Game ACC Win Streak

The road woes against conference competition continued Monday in Blacksburg for the Tar Heels, who were thoroughly outplayed in an 80-69 loss to the Virginia Tech Hokies. Coming into the game, Virginia Tech was at the bottom of a large number of defensive categories among ACC teams. However, the Hokie defense kept UNC from ever getting too comfortable.

Hokies rediscover Cassell advantage in upset of UNC

Monday’s 80-69 upset of the No. 10 Tar Heels was different. From the time Chris Clarke’s 3-pointer gave Tech a 33-32 lead until the final horn, Cassell was formidable, indeed. The Hokies fed off that energy on both ends and produced their most significant victory of the season. The Hokies limited their turnovers, which in turn slowed North Carolina’s fast break. (Daily Press)

Tar Heels loss at Virginia Tech raises questions

North Carolina suffered a frustrating loss at Virginia Tech on Monday, which may raise red flags on the rest of the Tar Heels’ season. The Tar Heels unraveled before halftime and saw a seven-point lead turn into a seven-point deficit at the break. The Hokies built the lead to as many as 16 before cruising to an 80-69 win that left UNC coach Roy Williams questioning the effort. (North State Journal)

Video: UNC Players Post-Virginia Tech Locker Room Interviews

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - UNC vs. Virginia Tech

"Sense of urgency" is something that's frequently on the Tar Heel scouting report for a game like this. Virginia Tech had more of it on Monday. The Hokies seemed to be first to every loose ball, were active for all 94 feet, won the rebounding battle 36-35 and tied 10-10 on the offensive glass (usually an area of strength for the Tar Heels) and made everything difficult for Carolina.

UNC Basketball Leads ACC with Fewest Transfers

One enduring criticism of Duke basketball over the years has been that players transfer from the program at a high rate. It turns out that 9 of the 15 teams currently in the ACC have had more transfers than Duke. While Louisville has had 17 during this time period, North Carolina has not had a single transfer. Florida State and Virginia are tied with Duke with 7 each. (Reddit.com)
