UNC-Davidson: Roy Williams Postgame Quotes

Roy Williams: “We were very pleased. I think we beat a very good basketball team that is a difficult matchup for us. I thought defensively it was by far our best game of the year and a difficult situation with our big guys having to go out on the floor. I thought Kennedy was huge inside and Justin Jackson gave us a lift, to say the least, with some of his scoring." (Inside Carolina)

Defense stands tall against Davidson

Sophomore Kennedy Meeks put up a team-high 19 points in front of his hometown crowd in No.6 North Carolina's 90-72 win against Davidson at Time Warner Cable Arena. But to Davidson coach Bob McKillop, Meeks wasn't necessarily North Carolina's best offensive weapon. "Their defense was the best offense they had," he said after the game. (Carolina Blue)

UNC Dance Marathon changes name to Carolina For the Kids Foundation

UNC Dance Marathon is getting an identity makeover. The organization, founded in 1997, has been named UNC Dance Marathon since its inception. This year, it’s changing its name to Carolina For the Kids Foundation. (Daily Tar Heel)

Heels Handle Davidson's Double Teams

Roy Williams spent a portion of his press conference on Friday discussing how future opponents weren’t likely to scrap their defensive preferences in order to throw a zone at a UNC offense limited in perimeter shooting options and long on interior length. Davidson, which primarily plays man-to-man, provided an example of how to defend the post without switching to a zone. (Inside Carolina)

Anson Dorrance declares innocence in academic scandal

Anson Dorrance’s new book looks like any other. A black and blue cover, spiral-bound like a notebook — it fits right in with the hundreds of other books piled up around his office. But this one is different. This one is more than just words on a page. This one is 131 pages worth of wrongdoings, detailing nearly two decades of poor decisions at the University of North Carolina. (Daily Tar Heel)

Recap & Analysis: UNC 90 Davidson 72

The Tar Heels did most things right this game. They played solid defense, ran the floor on offense and shot the ball well from the field. The Heels need to clean up their game from the foul line and continue to find shooting from a non-Marcus Paige player. If the Heels maintain this level of effort while still feeding the big men down low they can go very far this season. (Tar Heel Blog)

50 is the New 40

Being a UNC football fan in the Larry Fedora era means the Tar Heel record book is written in pencil, since in just three years, a number of significant offensive records have fallen. UNC games that cross the 40-point and even 50-point threshold are commonplace. However, it’s not just offensive records that are endangered. This season alone a half-dozen records for defensive futility have been set. (Raleigh & Company)

UNC, Northwestern, Mizzou, Kansas State to headline 2015 CBE Classic

Julius Peppers enjoying life with the Packers

Well into his 13th NFL season and with his third team, Julius Peppers is enjoying life with the Green Bay Packers. "I haven't really had very much to complain about," Peppers said Friday. "I wake up, I'm happy to come to work every day. So that's a good thing. So far, so good." What has Peppers excited and still highly productive at age 34 is being part of a deep and reliable group at outside linebacker. (USA Today)

Preview & Prediction: #6 UNC vs Davidson

The biggest concern for UNC will be Davidson junior Brian Sullivan. Last season, in UNC's overtime win over the Wildcats in Chapel Hill, Sullivan scored 33 points and was 7-14 from three. Davidson will be undersized against UNC's long perimeter players but at the same time have a pair of 6-9 players that can shoot threes. Prediction: UNC 83 Davidson 70 (Tar Heel Blog)

What Went Right, What Went Wrong Versus Duke

Given how the season has gone, though, this was easily the most complete game the team has played, so finding negatives was a bit more difficult than it usually is....More went right in North Carolina's 45-20 victory at Duke on Thursday night than in any game all season. 

UNC Receives Letter From Accreditation Agency

In response to Kenneth Wainstein’s report on academic irregularities, UNC’s accreditation agency has sent the school an eight-page letter asking for an update on how it’s complying with the standards required for accreditation. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools’ Commission on Colleges sent the letter earlier this month; UNC officials released it publicly on Friday during a meeting of the Faculty Council. (Chapelboro.com)

Marquise Williams sets UNC total yards record

In UNC's 45-20 win over Duke on Thursday night, Tar Heel quarterback Marquise Williams set the UNC single-season total offensive yards record. Williams has 3,499 total offense yards this year. He has 726 rushing yards (on 162 carries) and 2773 passing yards (on 234-369 passing, 63.4%). (Carolina Blue)
