2014-15 UNC Basketball Yearbook Available Online

Virginia Hosts UNC, Cavs Tied Atop ACC Coastal

Virginia hosts North Carolina at Scott Stadium for homecoming this Saturday. The Cavaliers are coming off a 20-13 loss at Duke, but still remain tied for first place in the ACC Coastal Division with Duke and Pitt. The Tar Heels are coming off a 48-43 win over Georgia Tech, in a game where UNC quarterback Marquise Williams passed for close to 400-yards and four touchdowns. (NBC 29)

Virginia meets defenseless North Carolina in swing game

The highest-scoring game in Scott Stadium's 84-year history was Virginia's 63-47 victory over Tulane in 1968. Might that benchmark be threatened Saturday when the Cavaliers face North Carolina? Virginia's defensive excellence this season screams "no." In seven games, the Cavaliers have allowed more than 28 points only once, in a 41-33 setback at Brigham Young. (Daily Press)

Bethel: Mary Willingham's "Literacy before Legacy" Campaign

Monday Mary Willingham launched "Literacy before Legacy," a campaign to raise $120,000 to establish a literacy program for college athletes. Furthermore, she hopes to begin the program in January 2015, less than three months from now, though she has offered no details on how the program would be structured or who would be part of her "team of experts." (Coaching the Mind)

The Magic of Marquise

Marquise Williams has accumulated 898 yards of total offense in the past two games, also a school record, and is one of six players in the country who leads his team in passing (1,776 yards) and rushing (448 yards). He is second in the ACC in total offense (317.7) behind Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Defensive Progress Required

The Coastal race is playing out as many pundits projected during the offseason. That is, a modern day version of the Wild West. All seven teams have at least one win and at least one loss with the majority of ACC games yet to be played. UNC (3-4, 1-2 ACC) is in contention but no longer in control of its destiny. Defense will likely determine if either of those dynamics change in the coming weeks. (Inside Carolina)

Larry Fedora Monday Press Conference Quotes

Larry Fedora: “Finishing up last week’s game, we were able to go back, there were a lot of things that we were able to pull from this game that will hopefully pay off for us in the future as we continue to grow in all three phases. We still have a lot of work to do in all three phases and we understand that, but I do believe we are showing some improvement.” (Inside Carolina)

Marquise Williams still strives for more

For the second consecutive week, UNC quarterback Marquise Williams was named the ACC offensive back of the week. The junior is playing his best football of the season, and both he and coach Larry Fedora have a pretty simple explanation for it — rhythm. "I really think it's more, he's gotten into a good rhythm and he's gotten comfortable," Fedora said. (Carolina Blue)

Marquise Williams coming up big, has UNC's offense rolling

Marquise Williams suddenly has UNC's quarterback job to himself. And the Tar Heels' offense is rolling. After spending the first month rotating with backup Mitch Trubisky, Williams has led UNC from start-to-finish in the past two games. With Williams putting up big numbers, the Tar Heels are consistently finishing drives in the end zone to build momentum heading into Saturday's trip to Virginia. (Associated Press)

Ryan Switzer's Emergence at Wide Receiver

Sophomore wide receiver Ryan Switzer had a career night on Saturday as his big plays helped spark the North Carolina offense in its 48-43 win over Georgia Tech. Larry Fedora knew coming into last weekend that his offense was going to need to a healthy dose of explosive plays in order to keep pace with a Georgia Tech offense averaging over 33 points per game. (Inside Carolina)

Postgame Chalkboard from UNC-Georgia Tech

A few weeks ago, I wrote that quarterback play and offensive line play were holding the North Carolina offense back. No longer. The last two weeks, those two units have probably been the team’s best, as the Tar Heels have scored 43 and 48 points in consecutive weeks. The improvement at the quarterback position has been most notable. (Inside Carolina)

Williams, Switzer receive weekly ACC awards

North Carolina junior quarterback Marquise Williams received the nod as the ACC Offensive Back of the Week for the second week in a row following his performance in UNC’s high-scoring win over Georgia Tech. Tar Heel sophomore wideout Ryan Switzer, who teamed up with Williams for a pair of touchdown passes, was named the ACC Receiver of the Week. (The ACC)

Marquise Williams, Tar Heels Cool Under Pressure

When faced with a deficit and little time remaining on the clock, the UNC offense came up big Saturday night, snapping a five-game losing streak to Georgia Tech. UNC signal caller Marquise Williams’ poise under pressure was paramount. UNC head coach Larry Fedora says the team works through the two-minute drill every week. It showed against the Yellow Jackets.
