Extra Points: Building A Brand On Defense

Carolina football has put up pinball type numbers on offense over four years of the Larry Fedora era. Each of them, in fact, ranks in the Top 10 of 125 years worth of total yards output in the sport’s history in Chapel Hill. Since 2012, Carolina has averaged 457 yards a game. Now the defense is trying to catch up. (GoHeels.com)

Andrew Miller doesn't care he is no longer the closer, wants to win

In Andrew Miller's words, he pitched "as well as he possibly could have" in his first year as a closer for the Yankees in 2015. He had 36 saves and a 2.04 ERA. Now, he is no longer the closer. A lot of guys would be upset. Not Miller. "I came to New York to be a winner," Miller said on the Michael Kay Show on 98.7 ESPN. (ESPN.com)

ACC's long and winding road affecting Triangle trio

Since Roy Williams took the North Carolina job 13 years ago, the Tar Heels have won an impressive 67 road games, while losing just 36. That’s a winning percentage of .650, which gives Williams the second best road winning percentage in ACC history. Yet Monday’s game at Louisville will not go down as one of Carolina’s great road efforts. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Roy Williams Live: Hubert Davis Offers Shooting Advice

North Carolina assistant coach Hubert Davis shared his perspective on the team's recent shooting struggles and detailed his advice to the players during the "Roy Williams Live" radio show on Tuesday night. I’ve talked to all of them,” said Davis, who was filling in for Williams. “I told them I had slumps like that all throughout my career when I was playing.” (Inside Carolina)

UNC's Kenan-Flagler Business School Recognized For Global Innovation

An app created by Kenan-Flagler Business School has been honored by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International. AACSB’s “Innovations That Insipre” was awarded the Leadership App, which markets the business school’s leadership program. (Chapelboro.com)

UNC needs improved guard play to bounce back from Louisville Loss

North Carolina had a difficult time getting the ball in the basket again on Monday night, but this time it was different. It couldn’t afford that type of performance against a talented Cardinals squad in a hostile environment. Most notably, UNC wasn’t going to steal that type of win without quality guard play. And on Monday, there were more questions than answers in the backcourt in the 71-65 road loss. (Today's U)

UNC Basketball: Playing The Back Nine

The second half of Carolina's ACC slate has the Tar Heels on the road for five of nine games, with seven of those games coming against teams ranked or receiving votes in this week's Associated Press Top 25. With a back-loaded schedule, the games in which the Tar Heels could get by on talent alone come few and far between in the month of February. (GoHeels.com)

Warriors’ Harrison Barnes undaunted by Kevin Durant buzz

Warriors small forward Harrison Barnes says he stopped following scuttlebutt about NBA transactions after the trade deadline in his rookie year, so he seemed genuinely surprised Tuesday to hear that Kevin Durant might be replacing him. “Oh man, that’s part of the business,” Barnes said. “He’s a great player. If that’s the move they want to make.” (San Francisco Gate)

Tyler Zeller finally gets his time to shine in win over Knicks

Nobody's had a more personally frustrating season than Tyler Zeller - though you wouldn't know it by talking to him. Zeller, by all accounts, has handled his diminished role on the Celtics like a true professional. He's been nothing but supportive of his teammates as he sits near the end of the bench, sometimes not even getting off of it to play a single minute. (CSN New England)

Kyle Seager ready to do whatever he can to help Mariners reach postseason

In the battle of the Seager brothers’ baseball accomplishments, Kyle always has held the lead over younger Corey, a phenom for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Kyle Seager, the Mariners’ third baseman, has four consecutive seasons of 20 homers or more and three out of four seasons with more than 80 RBI, an All-Star appearance, a Gold Glove award and a seven-year, $100 million contract. (Seattle Times)

Tre Boston, Sly Williams Carry Tar Heel Banner Into Super Bowl

Tar Heel football will be well-represented in Super Bowl 50 Sunday in Santa Clara when defensive tackle Sylvester Williams (Carolina Letterman 2011-12) of the Denver Broncos makes his second Super Bowl appearance and safety Tre Boston (2010-13) makes his first with the Carolina Panthers. “It’s still a little surreal for a lot of us,” says Boston. (UNC Lettermen)

Sylvester Williams is anchoring Denver’s Super Bowl defense

The play of Williams this season has made everyone in Denver look smart. He set career highs in both sacks (3.0) and tackles (25), but most importantly he has been a force on the line that has been able to dominate the line of scrimmage. His quickness off the ball has allowed the Denver defense to play on the offensive side of the football and it has been a catalyst for their success this season. (Today's Pigskin)

UNC coach Roy Williams still has real passion despite all the pain

Age has a way of getting the best of us, of making things once easy hard, of making experiences that used to be fun miserable. For some, this happens in their 40s. For others, it might not happen till their 70s. Either way, it happens, at some point. And I was reminded of this Thursday while talking with UNC coach Roy Williams. (CBS Sports)

Sylvester Williams went from working at Taco Bell to playing in Super Bowl

A part of Sylvester Williams will always remain in Jefferson City, Mo. In fact, Williams admits he would still be there himself working in a radiator factory if not motivated to craft a different fate. Of all the players who have taken improbable routes to Super Bowl 50, none may be stranger than the road traveled by Denver's nose tackle. (FOX Sports)

Ed Davis and his path to the Trail Blazers: Take nothing for granted

It was years ago, back when Ed Davis was in 8th grade, but he still remembers the day that changed his basketball career. “Will never forget it,’’ the Trail Blazers’ big man says. He was in Orlando, at a National AAU Under-14 Tournament with the Richmond Squires, and the team was back at a rental house after it was eliminated. (Comcast SportsNet Northwest)
