Retracing the real Vince Carter

Vince Carter is a showman by trade. During his early years in the league, watching him contort his body while unleashing truly astonishing aerial attacks on the rim was arguably the greatest show on earth. At his core, Carter was a global phenomenon that engulfed the basketball universe, leaving behind a permanent imprint that all these years later still feels surreal. (Hardwood Paroxysm)

Gene Chizik finds ‘karma’ in fresh start at UNC

Gene Chizik, the Tar Heels' defensive coordinator, never figured coaching would take him back to the state where his father grew up in the mountains, in Asheville, in the same school halls and on the same fields as the Justice boys. A long time ago Chizik's father, Gene Chizik Sr., became close friends with Charlie Justice, who remains one of UNC's most beloved athletes, and his brother Bill. (Charlotte Observer)

My Carolina Experience: Breada Farrell

Lacrosse became the center of Breada Farrell’s world when she began playing for a travel league in the fifth grade. From that moment on everything she did was grounded in her love of the sport. “I spent each summer competing with teams across the nation and loved it."

No weight too heavy for defensive end Junior Gnonkonde

It’s August 2008, and a plane lands in San Francisco. A boy gets out, stretches. It’s a long flight from Abidjan, a big city in Ivory Coast. They came to play basketball. Junior Gnonkonde is still 14 and rail thin. He’ll need to start lifting soon, but Junior already knows about strength. A karate background, growing up the second-youngest of eight kids — the first step of lifting is being mentally set. (Daily Tar Heel)

Q&A with UNC linebacker coach John Papuchis

John Papuchis: "Shortly after Coach (Gene) Chizik got hired here we had some contact—he reached out about a possible interest in coming here. At the time there were a couple options I was wading through. After talking to him, and knowing Coach (Larry) Fedora and what he’s all about as a man and a football coach, it became pretty obvious that this was a great opportunity for me and my family."

Tar Heel linebackers play integral role on defense

Three of them walk onto the field. A leader, a jester and an underdog. Together they form the North Carolina starting linebacker corps.

In 2014, the former walk-on finished second on the team in tackles and had two interceptions, both of which he returned for touchdowns. (Daily Tar Heel)

Thursday Gene Chizik Post-Practice Quotes

UNC defensive coordinator Gene Chizik: "The great thing about the first game is that it’s a great measuring stick on where you are. We’ll know on September fourth where we are at and where we need to be heading. I love these types of opening games. I think it’s exciting for the kids and it’s about them, not us coaches. I think it is an exciting opening game for our players and our fans." (Carolina Blue)

Taking off the cape: Marquise Williams plans on playing within himself this season

Marquise Williams doesn’t have to be the hero anymore. In the past two seasons, the North Carolina quarterback was in many situations where he had to carry his team on his way to setting 18 school records.
