Roy Williams Not Expecting Any NBA Jumps

Roy Williams told his radio show audience on Monday night that he expects his roster to remain intact for the 2015-16 season. “I do think everybody’s coming back, but I’ve been surprised before,” Williams said.

Sapp Engineers a Tar Heel Golf Turnaround

Keep this under your hat, but things are changing in Chapel Hill.

An Interview With Milwaukee Bucks Center John Henson

John Henson plays center for the Milwaukee Bucks. On the court he can be found, blocking shots, posting up, or shooting that perfect left hook.

So that’s what we did. (Radio Milwaukee)

NCAA, North Carolina seek dismissal of lawsuit over academic scandal

The NCAA and the University of North Carolina on Monday asked a federal judge in North Carolina to dismiss a lawsuit connected to the academic scandal involving Tar Heels athletes.

I actually started coaching right away.” (San Diego Chargers)

Art’s Angle: More Talent, Toughness Needed

UNC still leads the NCAA Tournament with the most Sweet Sixteen appearances (now 32) but the Tar Heels are living proof of what it takes to get out of the regional round and onto the biggest stage, the Final Four.

The injured quarterbacks: Any discussion of the ACC's top quarterbacks for 2015 promises to include both Deshaun Watson and Marquise Williams, and yet neither is taking snaps this spring.

Interview with Harrison Barnes, Warriors’ renaissance man

What’s the difference between starting and coming off the bench for you? Harrison Barnes: Well it’s a big difference.
