UNC-Georgia Tech Postgame Notes

The 32-point win was UNC's largest win over the Yellow Jackets in Atlanta. It was UNC's largest overall win over Georgia Tech since a 92-55 win on Jan. 24, 1987, in Chapel Hill. Marcus Paige had a career high 6 steals and hit his 200th career three-pointer. It was the first time all season that the only Tar Heels in double figures were freshmen—15 by Joel Berry II and 13 by Justin Jackson. (GoHeels.com)

Recap & Analysis: UNC 81, Georgia Tech 49

It is unclear how many conclusions can be drawn from this game. Joel Berry has played well in the past two games and is the first guard off the bench ahead of Nate Britt. If his outside shot and overall play is finally clicking it could be a huge boost to an offense that sorely needs perimeter scoring. Likewise, Theo Pinson's return could be a catalyst providing he can give Roy Williams meaningful minutes. (Tar Heel Blog)

No. 19 North Carolina crushes Georgia Tech 81-49

Just in time for a rematch with Duke, No. 19 North Carolina established some late-season momentum by beating Georgia Tech 81-49 on Tuesday night, completing a sweep of the struggling Yellow Jackets. The Tar Heels, who have won two straight for the first time since January, close their regular season against No. 3 Duke on Saturday. Duke beat North Carolina 92-90 in overtime on Feb. 18.

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Georgia Tech

So with the 81-49 win, now attention can officially turn to the season finale against Duke. The Tar Heels have clinched no worse than a fifth seed in next week's ACC Tournament and could possibly play their way into the four spot. Worth much more than that, of course, is the chance on Saturday to avenge the overtime loss in Cameron Indoor Stadium from earlier this year. (GoHeels.com)

Matt Harvey doesn't hold anything back in first live batting practice session

Live batting practice reveals little about where a pitcher stands, especially when it comes in the earliest days of spring training. Take, for example, Matt Harvey's session Monday. Of the 26 pitches he threw to five simulated batters, two were curveballs in the dirt that fooled Curtis Granderson and David Wright. But they came with the hitters in simulated situational hitting situations -- hit-and-runs and the like -- meaning that they had to swing. (Newsday)

Dustin Ackley Recalls a Day His Life Changed Direction

People tend to remember dates when something significant happens. For Dustin Ackley, it was May 5, 2008. Ackley, outfielder for the Seattle Mariners, found that the U. of North Carolina (UNC) offered him more than just an excellent education and a great baseball program. It also offered him an avenue to a closer relationship with God. (Athletes in Action)

Preview & Prediction: #19 UNC at Georgia Tech

The Yellow Jackets got rolled in Chapel Hill and likely aren't going to allow that to happen again, not on Senior Night. UNC isn't likely to play as well as it did on February 21st which is to say this will be a dogfight. Georgia Tech's defense has largely been very good in terms of limiting opposing teams over offensive efficiency. Prediction: UNC 71, Georgia Tech 64 (Tar Heel Blog)

Art’s Angle: No Comparison

Mike Krzyzewski and Kevin White should resign their posts at Duke for harboring knowledge for almost one full year that Rasheed Sulaimon had been accused of raping two women in two separate incidents. How does that sound? Compare that to “Roy Williams should resign despite repeatedly saying that he had no knowledge of his players taking classes that were mis-taught by a secretary in the AFAM department.” (Chapelboro.com)

Roy Williams Radio Show Quotes

Roy Williams on having a winning road record for the ninth time in 12 years: “It is something we are really proud of. You have to be able to play anywhere. I’ve always told them I’d rather go into your house and beat you there than in my own house, but that doesn’t mean we want to give up home court advantage. We haven’t played well on three or four nights at home this year and we have to get that changed.” (Inside Carolina)

UNC No. 2 "best quality school in the US that offers great deals to in-state students”

Tar Heels could climb higher for bye

North Carolina still has a shot at claiming a top-four seed for next week’s ACC Tournament, a final top-four slot that will otherwise go to Louisville. The Tar Heels are guaranteed a bye through the first day, but the so-called double-bye is only earned by four teams. “If you get it, I think it’s important,” Roy Williams said of one of the four teams with byes into the quarterfinals.

Nancy Kassebaum Baker, a high school classmate of the late college basketball coaching legend Dean Smith, has established a scholarship fund to honor Smith’s memory at the Topeka Community Foundation. That foundation announced Monday that fundraising had begun to finance the scholarship or scholarships to be given to a Trojan or Lady Trojan athlete who is interested in playing in college.

Georgia Tech hosts North Carolina on senior night

The three seniors on the Georgia Tech basketball team get one more chance Tuesday to walk onto the court at McCamish Pavilion. It’s sure to be an emotional event, as senior night typically is. But will that be enough against a team like North Carolina? Georgia Tech (12-17, 3-14 ACC) remembers the Tar Heels well. (Macon Telegraph)
