The sophomore got in a perfect offensive rhythm, creating easy shots both for himself and for his teammates. (GoHeels.com)
Roy Williams On UNC's Win Over NorthwesternRoy Williams: "We had three good stretches where we were good on the offensive end and the defensive end. We also had two stretches where we were terrible defensively. I thought Justin Jackson, who everyone wanted me to be worried about five days ago, has played pretty well the last two games: 21 and 13 tonight and six offensive rebounds is something I always love to have."

Ross' Rapid Reactions: UNC vs. NorthwesternTheo Pinson is taking over where J.P. Tokoto left off in terms of assist production. He had five assists in the first half and always looked for the extra pass for the better shot. His no-look assist in the second half through two defenders to Kennedy Meeks is one of the better assists you'll see all season. Pinson finished with eight assists, but had four turnovers.

Tar Heels' defense no worse for wearThis time last season, N.C. State was extolling the virtues of its blue-collar team after a blue-collar 35-7 shellacking of rival North Carolina in Chapel Hill. When asked Monday whether those comments rankled him, head coach Larry Fedora of No. 11 North Carolina responded with five seconds of silence. “I don’t know how to answer that,” Fedora said after the pause.

Williams overcomes turnover deja vu against Virginia TechAs the ball kept popping loose and the rabid crowd at Lane Stadium roared louder and louder, no one on the North Carolina sideline could shake the feeling of, "Here we go again."

And just like before, it was Williams who was going to be the difference in a Tar Heel win or loss. (Daily Tar Heel)

NC State’s Doeren stands by comments after last year’s win over UNCWas NC State football coach Dave Doeren being a bit too chesty about a big win over the Pack’s rivals and UNC coach Larry Fedora?
