UNC-Davidson Preview

North Carolina struggled at times last season, leaving coach Roy Williams to preach to his big men about providing solid efforts on a consistent basis. The message finally may be getting through. The sixth-ranked Tar Heels look to keep rolling as they face in-state counterpart Davidson on Saturday in Charlotte. (CBS Sports)

Road Swing Begins At Davidson

North Carolina (2-0) will play its first road game of the 2014-15 season when it plays at Davidson (2-0) on Saturday at 2 p.m. The game will be played at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte. Carolina is coming off a pair of home wins over North Carolina Central and Robert Morris, while Davidson has started the campaign 2-0 with home wins over Catholic and Campbell. (GoHeels.com)

Lucas: UNC Basketball Notebook

Tomorrow marks UNC’s first regular-season game in Charlotte since the 2007-08 season opener. That game was also against Davidson, and featured a 72-68 Tar Heel win. Although it feels like Roy Williams has spent more time in Charlotte than this because of various ACC and NCAA Tournament appearances, this is just the fourth regular season game in the Queen City during the Williams era.

Duke football assistant goes on unhinged pregame rampage before UNC game

It should be noted that after Hoover got one guy super excited, another guy unnerved, and killed a chair, that Duke went out and lost 45-20. Maybe next time they should just listen to some fun music or do a team cheer or not destroy furniture. (USA Today)

UNC to Learn on the Road

No. 6 North Carolina will play its next four games away from the Dean E. Smith Center, its longest road stretch of the season.

Extra Points: Color It Chrome

When the Tar Heels went out for opening warm-ups on Thursday night at Wallace Wade Stadium wearing black helmets, the equipment staff pulled out the chrome lids and had them waiting. The players made the switch just before the kickoff and a sublime confluence of energy, focus, resolve, preparation, scheming and a roster of players maturing as the season wore on resulted in that fast start.

The Good, Bad, and Ugly Report: Duke

Wow, who saw that coming? With the win against Duke, UNC regains the Victory Bell but more importantly is once again bowl eligible after a 2-4 start and being labeled one of the country's biggest disappointments. Carolina did not disappoint in a featured prime-time game with tons on the line for both teams, however. With that in mind, here is this week's GBU Report: (Tar Heel Blog)
