The Turning Point?

This game could serve as a turning point in the Larry Fedora era. It could be that moment where the players truly bought into what the coaching staff had been teaching them. The actual bearing of fruit following weeks of seeing barren branches could give the Tar Heel players the necessary confidence and the program much needed momentum. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC defense spoils Duke’s championship hopes

The UNC defense gave up 511.6 yards per game and 51 total touchdowns, earning it a spot at the bottom of the ACC. In North Carolina’s 45-20 win, UNC’s defense held Duke in check. The Blue Devils managed just 243 total yards of offense through three quarters, and their 20 points are the fewest an opponent has scored against the Tar Heels this season. (Daily Tar Heel)

Marcus Ginyard's Journey to the D-League

Known as a defensive stopper in his time as a Tar Heel, Marcus Ginyard won a National Championship at North Carolina in 2009. Since, basketball has taken him to Germany, Israel, Poland and Ukraine. Now 27, he’s back in the United States, playing just up the road for the Westchester Knicks. This is his story. (SLAM Online)

Know Your Opponent: Davidson

Brian Sullivan is back for Davidson, and Tar Heel fans will remember him. He dropped 33 in the Smith Center a year ago, including seven 3s. Fellow captains and returning standouts Tyler Kalinoski (11.0 points and 5.0 rebounds per game in 2013-14) and Jack Gibbs also return for the Wildcats. Kalinoski was actually Davidson’s most efficient offensive player a season ago. (GoHeels.com)

Running Over the Devils

North Carolina’s ground attack was able to take advantage of a sub-par Duke run defense early and often on Thursday, as the Tar Heels ran all over their archrival en route to a 45-20 victory. Coming into Thursday night’s contest, the Blue Devils (197.6 yards per game) were the lone defense in the ACC that had surrendered more yards against the run than UNC. (Inside Carolina)

Art’s Angle: Statement Game

The Tar Heels edited the revisionist history of their last two games with Duke by pounding the ballyhooed and rebuilt Blue Devils into the stadium turf that will be lowered after the season to add more seats to the old horseshoe. Duke might want to wait another year or two to see if the David Cutcliffe love affair is cooling off with the fans, many of whom had fled by halftime. (Chapelboro.com)

Carolina Rundown: November 21

Start your day with highlights from last night's Bell-ringing win. There's a Roy Williams press conference this afternoon in advance of the Davidson game. Loren Shealy won the prestigious Elite 89 award at the field hockey Final Four (for the third time). Jonas Sahratian would be proud as Danny Green shares his eating and nutrition picks. (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels finally show potential in win vs. Duke

Finally, the Tar Heels played like the team a lot of people thought they would be when the 2014 season began. OK, it's an exaggeration that UNC performed like a nationally ranked team Thursday in thumping rival Duke, 45-20, at Wallace Wade Stadium. But the Tar Heels came as close to living up to their No. 23 status in the preseason Associated Press poll as they have all year. (Fayetteville Observer)

Fresh off a thrilling 45-20 victory over Duke, a limited number of game-worn, chrome helmets are being offered for sale for $1,195.00 per helmet (plus $29.95 shipping & handling). (GoHeels.com)

UNC rushes to bell, possible bowl

North Carolina beat Duke like it was the old days, those times when Tailback U had grand ground games of 1,000-yard rushers, back when the Blue Devils couldn't get out of their own way. For a change this season, the Tar Heels ran for more yardage than they accumulated through the air, those 315 rushing yards carving up Duke's defense to help toward a 45-20 result. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Ground game propels UNC to victory

When North Carolina running back T.J. Logan stepped inside the visitor’s locker room outside of Wallace Wade Stadium after trotting off the field from pregame warmups, he knew it was going to be a night to remember. Sitting on the chair outside of his locker was a fresh chrome-colored helmet never before seen by any of the Tar Heels’ players. (Carolina Blue)

Vince Carter is finally forgiven and it should change his legacy

The legacy of Vince Carter has always been a bit tough to figure out. Carter is a supremely talented player who showcased some of the best finishing we have ever seen, yet any time his legacy comes up in discussion things seemed to turn sour thanks to the way Carter’s career as a Toronto Raptor ended. (Hardwood Paroxysm)

Turner's Take: Answering The Bell

It was great. The surprise helmets, the early scores, the taking the lead and never looking back, and the taking back the bell. Carolina got to six wins and bowl eligibility on Thursday, but more importantly, they showed just who they could be. Larry Fedora said the Tar Heels were “the team that I expected to grow to.” (GoHeels.com)

UNC dominates 'Battle of the Blues'

Two minutes before the final horn sounded, Duke's athletic operations staff began rolling the Victory Bell around the horseshoe from Duke's sideline to its new owners for the next year. And when it was officially over — it had, realistically, been over for quite some time — the players rushed to the bell and clanged it with a vigor pent up from two years of near misses and heartbreak. (Carolina Blue)
