Lucas: Rapid Reactions - UNC vs. Louisville

Put Joel Berry's block of Ray Spalding in his UNC time capsule. Louisville had closed to within eight points with two minutes left and appeared to have a run-out dunk that would cut it to six. But Berry hustled down the floor to block the shot, then got the rebound. It was an incredible play from a senior who has done almost everything in his UNC career. (GoHeels.com)

M.J. and Fifty Five: Points Scored and Time Alive

Here’s one way to measure time. Michael Jordan turned 55 Saturday and thus qualified to be a formal AARP member. That’s right, people born the year Michael Jordan recorded his famous double nickel have graduated college. Michael Jordan used a rotary phone, eight-track tapes and preferred Converse. And he’s still whom we measure basketball excellence against. (Chicago Bulls)

Perry's Overtime Game-Winner Sends UNC Men's Lacrosse Past Lehigh

For the second straight Saturday, the UNC men's lacrosse team needed overtime to prevail as William Perry's fourth goal of the game with 36 seconds elapsed in extra time gave the Tar Heels a 12-11 win over Lehigh at Kenan Stadium (Highlights). Seven days ago it was Justin Anderson who scored 31 seconds into overtime to lift the Tar Heels past Furman. (GoHeels.com)

Underdog heading into Saturday’s 3-point contest, Ellington ready to make it ‘Wayne’

The Miami Heat has a tradition of success in the NBA’s three-point contest – and Wayne Ellington is aware of it heading into his first career appearance in it Saturday at Staples Center. “D-Wade told me, ‘All of my teammates that have participated in this won. But no added pressure,’” Ellington said through a grin this week. “I started laughing.” (Miami Herald)

Michael Jordan's 55th birthday in 23 outstanding stats

Since he's now 55, it's only fitting to start by remembering the Double Nickel. It's common knowledge that Jordan's 55-point game at Madison Square Garden in 1995 came in just his fifth game back from his first retirement. But did you know that 42 of the 55 points came when guarded by John Starks? Over an 11-game stretch in the spring of 1989, Jordan had 10 triple-doubles. (ESPN.com)

Not Calling Timeouts May Be Stubborn, But It Also Works

Roy Williams and timeouts have basically been like oil and vinegar in the coach’s 30-year Hall of Fame career. Yet, he’s sort of become synonymous with them, though with a twist. Williams doesn’t like calling timeouts, even in seemingly dire situations. That’s actually no secret within the college basketball universe, and it's at times a thorn of contention for some UNC fans. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Louisville basketball wary of UNC's transition offense: 'We can't get into a track meet'

North Carolina is playing at a slower tempo in ACC play than the past two seasons, according to Ken Pomeroy. The Tar Heels' adjusted tempo, based primarily on the number of offensive possessions per game, ranks seventh in the ACC. In fact, Louisville plays a slightly faster pace. UNC still takes a little more than one quarter of its shots in transition situations. (Louisville Courier-Journal)

Tar Heels hit groove at good time

Four consecutive victories in a variety of fashions have given North Carolina’s basketball team a boost of confidence. The Tar Heels have done their good deeds at home with the exception of last week’s short trip to NC State. So Saturday night’s visit to Louisville brings a different kind of challenge as North Carolina tries to climb a little higher in the ACC standings. (Burlington Times News)

Struggles from way downtown for Tar Heels defense

Much has been made of North Carolina’s struggles to defend the 3-pointer this season. The Tar Heels have given up 276 threes. That’s already 10th-most in ACC history, with a month to go before the start of the NCAA Tournament. While raw totals of threes allowed may not be the best measure of a team’s perimeter defense, the other stats aren’t any better. (North State Journal)

On Dean Smith Tribute Night, UNC JV basketball wins 75-61 in Carmichael Arena

The reason for North Carolina's JV basketball team still existing is former Tar Heels men’s basketball coach Dean Smith. He believed that every student deserves a chance to try out for the basketball team, so he kept the JV team in tact after the majority of colleges disbanded theirs. The North Carolina JV basketball team honored Smith on Thursday night. (Daily Tar Heel)

The Triangle's real rivalry: Roy Williams vs. timeouts

Open to discussing his dislike of N.C. State, Roy Williams has taken his feud with timeouts to a new level the past two weeks, shunning timeouts for more than 140 minutes of game-time. Williams last called one to set up a shot with four seconds remaining in the first half of the win over Pittsburgh on Feb. 3. Williams was unaware of his streak until Friday.
