Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Northwestern

That was one of the best versions of Justin Jackson that the Tar Heels have seen in his young career. In addition to his 21 points, Jackson was very involved in every aspect of the game. His 13 rebounds gave him his first career double-double, an especially impressive stat considering he had eight rebounds the entire season going into Monday night. (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels' defense no worse for wear

This time last season, N.C. State was extolling the virtues of its blue-collar team after a blue-collar 35-7 shellacking of rival North Carolina in Chapel Hill. When asked Monday whether those comments rankled him, head coach Larry Fedora of No. 11 North Carolina responded with five seconds of silence. “I don’t know how to answer that,” Fedora said after the pause. (Winston-Salem Journal)

Williams overcomes turnover deja vu against Virginia Tech

As the ball kept popping loose and the rabid crowd at Lane Stadium roared louder and louder, no one on the North Carolina sideline could shake the feeling of, "Here we go again." Just like in the season-opening loss to South Carolina, redshirt senior quarterback Marquise Williams had turned the ball over three times. And just like before, it was Williams who was going to be the difference in a Tar Heel win or loss. (Daily Tar Heel)

Larry Fedora, UNC Focused on NC State

With the arrival of rivalry week, and a chance at the rare state championship looming, Larry Fedora had nothing but nice things to say about the N.C. State Wolfpack in his weekly press conference. “What makes college football and sports so much fun is that you have these rivalries, especially these regional rivalries,” said Fedora on Monday. (Inside Carolina)

No. 11 UNC keeps focus on NC State, not year-old trash talk

Marquise Williams insists he doesn't have a score to settle with rival North Carolina State. The North Carolina quarterback has more important things to worry about than trash talk. His 11th-ranked Tar Heels (10-1, 7-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) are in the midst of the program's best season in nearly two decades. "Last year's team was last year," Williams said Monday. (Associated Press)

Seattle Mariners Sign Catcher Chris Iannetta to 2016 Contract

Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jerry Dipoto brought in a name that he was quite familiar with over the last few years, signing free agent catcher Chris Iannetta to a 1-year contract through the 2016 season. Iannetta, 32, hit .188 with 28 runs, 10 doubles, 10 home runs and 34 RBI in 92 games with the Angels last season. (Seattle Mariners)

ACC Football Championship Game Sold Out

The 2015 ACC Football Championship Game is sold out. This year’s game is scheduled for the evening of Saturday, Dec. 5 at Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium. The top-ranked and undefeated Clemson Tigers are the Atlantic Division Champion and will face the Coastal Division Champion and 11th-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels. (The ACC)

NC State’s Doeren stands by comments after last year’s win over UNC

Was NC State football coach Dave Doeren being a bit too chesty about a big win over the Pack’s rivals and UNC coach Larry Fedora? More so, does he now regret saying so much with UNC coming to Carter-Finley Stadium this week with a 10-1 record, ranked 11th nationally, having clinched the Coastal Division? “No, I don’t think so,” Doeren said Monday. (Charlotte Observer)

Destinee Walker Named ACC Women's Basketball Rookie Of The Week

UNC freshman Destinee Walker has been named the ACC Women’s Basketball Rookie of the Week after leading her team to a 4-0 record last week. Walker, from Orlando, Fla., averaged a team-leading 19.3 points per game. She exploded for 32 points and 10 rebounds in a 94-58 win over Florida A&M to open a busy week for the Tar Heels.

Video: UNC Football All-Access vs. Virginia Tech - 2015 Coastal Division Champs

UNC drops in polls, Paige not playing tonight

The time at the top didn't last long. North Carolina, who was ranked No. 1 in both the coaches and AP Polls, dropped in both this week. The Tar Heels lost 71-67 to Northern Iowa on Saturday to move to 3-1 on the season. Carolina takes on Northwestern on Monday night at 9:15 PM. The game is in Kansas City. (Carolina Blue)

Elijah Hood talks emotions of win, season

Football is a powerful game. It brings out emotions that you never thought were possible. The combination of a year's worth of preparation, a lifetime of work, the thrill of victory, and the satisfaction of accomplishment can do a lot to a man's heart. After Saturday's 30-27 win over Virginia Tech, UNC running back Elijah Hood stood to the side on a nondescript room underneath a quiet and then dark Lane Stadium. (Carolina Blue)

Preview & Prediction: #9 UNC vs Northwestern

Northern Iowa and Northwestern both average 67.5 possessions per game putting them in the 330s nationally for tempo. A slower game tends to mean more half court offense and without Marcus Paige that has proven to be a bit dicey. Better offensive execution in half court sets will be crucial if the Tar Heels cannot get as many transition looks. Prediction: UNC 77 Northwestern 69 (Tar Heel Blog)

Jets waive former 1st-round pick Quinton Coples

The New York Jets waived outside linebacker Quinton Coples on Monday, three years after he was selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft, the team announced. Coples, 25, was considered one of the premier pass rushers in a 2012 NFL Draft class that featured Bruce Irvin, Chandler Jones and Whitney Mercilus. (SB Nation)

Weekly Basketball Assignments: Week 3

Marcus Paige is still missing and the Tar Heels have missed his playmaking in their first four games. However, these growing pains could develop players who will stand out down the stretch as Carolina gets into the postseason. This week would be a good place for Joel Berry, Theo Pinson and Nate Britt to show that they learned from the loss to Northern Iowa. (Tar Heel Blog)

Three to know: No. 9 North Carolina vs. Northwestern

Chris Collins is in his third season as Northwestern’s head coach. The Chicago-area native should be familiar to ACC hoops fans. He was a shooting guard for Duke in the mid-1990s and served on Mike Krzyzewski’s staff for more than a decade. Seven-foot senior center Alex Olah has been a major cog in the Wildcats’ attack, averaging 13 points and eight rebounds. (Fayetteville Observer)

Larry Fedora continues piling up aces

Credit Larry Fedora and his staff for surviving. His three previous UNC teams probably would not have been up to closing out such a tense, important game. The trip to N.C. State on Saturday will be the game of the year (so far) for both sides and as much as UNC needs to win to keep its wildest dreams flickering, the outcome at Virginia Tech should ease some of the pressure. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Top of the Hill named one of 'Top 10 brewpubs in the U.S.'

Top of the Hill, a longtime favorite venue in Chapel Hill, has been named on of the 'Top 10 brewpubs in the U.S.' by international restaurant review site Gayot. Cited for its "outstanding beer and delicious food," the website – named for French travel writer Henri Gayot – gives Top of the Hill a shout-out for being "consistently good since opening about 20 years ago, before anyone used the term 'brewpub.'"

Thought for the Day
Be true to the game, because the game will be true to you. If you try to shortcut the game, then the game will shortcut you. If you put forth the effort, good things will be bestowed upon you. That's truly about the game, and in some ways that's about life too.
--Michael Jordan
