Video: Pillars of the Program - Kenny Smith talks UNC

Kenny Smith's three greatest UNC basketball players all won a national title in 1982. See who Kenny named as the Pillars of the UNC Program. (NCAA.com)

Video: Pillars of the Program - UNC Basketball

With six national championship banners hanging in the Dean Dome, picking the three greatest Tar Heels is no easy task. Here's a look at the Pillars of the UNC Program. (NCAA.com)

Quinshad Davis Eyeing UNC Career Touchdown Mark

Wide receiver Quinshad Davis’s perseverance throughout a trying 2014 season has the junior just one touchdown reception shy of tying the North Carolina school record. Former Tar Heel Hakeem Nicks set the career touchdown record (21) back in 2008, and with rival N.C. State coming to town, Davis knows how special it would be to match the Tar Heel great on Saturday. (Inside Carolina)

UNC Women's Basketball Visits Pearl Harbor

Tuesday morning, the UNC women’s basketball team kept its focus on basketball at the University of Hawaii in preparation for the Rainbow Wahine Showdown. But as practice was winding down, coach Sylvia Hatchell gave her team a heads-up that focus was about to shift. The team was scheduled for a trip to Pearl Harbor in the afternoon, and Hatchell reminded them, “Freedom isn’t free.” (GoHeels.com)

Meeks' rebounding lifts Tar Heels' hopes

After just two games, North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams said this season's team might have the best offensive rebounders he has coached. It’s too early to tell definitively, but the statistics show at least 270 pounds of reason to back Williams up – sophomore center Kennedy Meeks. (Greensboro News & Record)

2014 Battle 4 Atlantis: Preview and Predictions

Player to watch: Marcus Paige, North Carolina - Paige isn’t off to a blistering start (12 points per game), but UNC has hardly needed him to be an All-American in the first three games. That changes as UNC advances through Atlantis. The second round brings a matchup against Oklahoma or UCLA and then probably Wisconsin, Florida or Georgetown. (Athlon Sports)

Who’s Responsible for Kyle Seager?

Kyle Seager will earn $100 million, and Kyle Seager *deserves* that mind-boggling sum. Despite a park/division that suppresses offense, the 3B has become a lynchpin of the Mariners’ offense. Seager is incredible, and yet underrated, as he wasn’t a first-rounder or hyped prospect. How did Kyle Seager get here? (Seattle Post-Intelligencer)

Marcus Paige a bright spot for UNC

When Marcus Paige was growing up, it was all about Carolina blue. He rocked Jordans, called Vince Carter his favorite player and celebrated when the 2005 team won it all. “That’s who I would cheer for,” Paige says. “When I figured out Vince Carter went there, I became a huge fan.” Marcus Paige is from Marion, IA. Of course, having fans spread far from Chapel Hill isn’t out of the ordinary for the Tar Heels. (SLAM Online)

Preview & Prediction: #5 UNC vs Butler

With Butler's three point shooting being such an important factor in the Bulldogs' Maui win two years ago, UNC's attention will again be drawn to the perimeter defense. 6-6 junior Kellen Dunham, he of the 5-9 shooting from three two years ago, will test the Tar Heel defenders. Dunham is 10-15 on three pointers so far this season. Prediction: UNC 81 Butler 67 (Tar Heel Blog)

Carolina Rundown: November 26

12 points and eight rebounds for Harrison Barnes. Ty Lawson had 20 points and 12 assists and also did this to Kirk Hinrich. The first edition of the SI power rankings includes plenty of good stats and info. Men's basketball faces Butler at noon on ESPN2. Volleyball hosts Duke at 2 p.m. The Broncos signed Connor Barth. (GoHeels.com)

Bahamas business trip

One thing's clear about North Carolina's Thanksgiving week trip to the Bahamas: this one's for business, not pleasure. The Tar Heels got the pleasure out of the way in their August trip to Paradise Island when they played two exhibition games against local teams in a recreation center a few miles away from the Atlantis Resort. (Carolina Blue)

Three to know preview of UNC vs. Butler

Two seasons ago, Butler led by as many as 28 points in an 82-71 victory over the Tar Heels at the Maui Invitational, but Brad Stevens left Butler to coach the Boston Celtics, and the Bulldogs went 14-17 last season (with a 4-14 mark in their Big East debut) under coach Brandon Miller. (Fayetteville Observer)

Tar Heels to open Battle 4 Atlantis tournament Wednesday

The No. 5 Tar Heels will look to avoid their pitfalls from two years ago when UNC and Butler face off in another exotic locale at noon Wednesday (ESPN2) in the first round of the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament at the Atlantis Paradise Island resort in Nassau, Bahamas. The winner will advance to face the Oklahoma/UCLA winner in Thursday’s first semifinal game at 1 p.m. (Durham Herald-Sun)

I'm A Tar Heel: Luke Davis

Luke Davis: "There is no way I will ever be able to fully explain what being a part of Carolina Basketball has meant to me. Every gameday, we have the privilege of playing basketball in the Dean E. Smith Center, for the greatest coach in the country, in front of the greatest fans in the country. I want to thank you for helping make my dreams come true." (GoHeels.com)
