Georgia Tech hosts North Carolina on senior night

The three seniors on the Georgia Tech basketball team get one more chance Tuesday to walk onto the court at McCamish Pavilion. It’s sure to be an emotional event, as senior night typically is. But will that be enough against a team like North Carolina? Georgia Tech (12-17, 3-14 ACC) remembers the Tar Heels well. (Macon Telegraph)

Georgia Tech wary of Marcus Paige

The reason freshman reserve Joel Berry was the first player off UNC’s bench to relieve starting point guard Marcus Paige on Saturday was because he’d been playing better ball than Nate BrittI, UNC coach Roy Williams said Monday. Britt, who had one assist against Miami, played four minutes and didn’t attempt any shots. He averages nearly 17 minutes a game. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Roy Williams Monday Teleconference Quotes

Roy Williams spoke with the media in the ACC teleconference on Monday. In the discussion he touched on the ACC tournament, the addition of new walk-on player Spenser Dalton, and the status of injured freshman Theo Pinson. "I don't expect to have [Pinson] back. Yesterday's practice was the first live thing that he has done. I don't foresee him playing tomorrow night." (Carolina Blue)

No. 11 Diamond Heels Hold Off Liberty, 6-4

Trevor Kelley tossed 5.1 innings of stellar relief and Zack Gahagan hit his first career home run as No. 11 North Carolina beat Liberty 6-4 Monday at Liberty Baseball Stadium.

Tale of the Tape: UNC vs Georgia Tech

UNC will face Georgia Tech for the second time in just eleven days. That makes our regular peek at the numbers a bit redundant except UNC has seen some shifts in the efficiency ratings since February 21st. UNC 89-60 win over Georgia Tech in Chapel Hill was UNC's third best offensive efficiency of the season including a season best eFG% of 66.4. Since then the Tar Heel offense has sputtered.

Hornets’ P.J. Hairston misses weights, sits

Charlotte Hornets rookie P.J. Hairston was inactive for Sunday’s game against Orlando after missing a weight-training session. Two sources confirmed Hairston missed his weights obligation.

Carolina Heads To ‘Hotlanta’ To Face Georgia Tech

The No. 19 North Carolina men’s basketball team, 20-9 overall and 10-6 in ACC play, travels to Atlanta Tuesday night for a rematch with Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets, 12-17 overall with a 3-14 mark in the league, will be hoping to sting the Tar Heels and knock them out of a potential No. 4 seed in next week’s ACC Tournament. UNC’s final road game of the season figures to be a manageable one. (Chapelboro.com)

Jesse Holley calls out MMA champ Ronda Rousey

A former NFL player says he's found the one person who could beat Ronda Rousey in an MMA fight -- himself -- saying if the two got in the octagon, Rousey wouldn't stand a chance. The man talking the smack is Jesse Holley -- who played WR for North Carolina and then the Dallas Cowboys after winning a tryout with the team on Michael Irvin's 2009 reality show "4th and Long." (TMZ.com)

Previewing Georgia Tech

No. 19 North Carolina and Georgia Tech will square off for the second time in 11 days on Tuesday. Tip-off at McCamish Pavilion is set for 7pm and will be aired on ESPNU.

(Inside Carolina)

North Carolina Ranked 19th In Both Basketball Polls

North Carolina fell four spots to No. 19 in this week's Associated Press top 25 poll and dropped one spot to No. 19 in this week's ESPN/USA Today coaches poll, released on Monday.

Brice Johnson and JP Tokoto combine for seven dunks in win over Miami

It comes too naturally to Brice Johnson for him to fully appreciate its significance. Don’t think he doesn’t enjoy it — he’d be crazy not to — but maybe his vantage point prohibits him from witnessing the impact it can have. Maybe the best vantage point is courtside, where North Carolina play-by-play announcer Jones Angell sits. (Daily Tar Heel)

Charlton Warren Officially Tabbed As UNC Defensive Backs Coach

UNC head coach Larry Fedora announced Monday that Charlton Warren has been hired as UNC’s defensive backs coach.

ACC Football 2015 Spring Preview and Power Rankings

3. North Carolina: If UNC can improve on defense in 2015, this team can contend in the Coastal Division. The good news is coach Larry Fedora hired a good defensive staff, headlined by coordinator Gene Chizik. Additionally, six starters are back from a unit that also has plenty of young players returning after garnering valuable experience last year. (Athlon Sports)

Know Your Opponent: Georgia Tech

Ten days after the Tar Heels delivered their most complete performance of the year against the Yellow Jackets in an 89-60 thumping, Carolina and Georgia Tech will run it back in Atlanta Tuesday night. For Tech, it's been more of the same in the two games since the trip to Chapel Hill - two single-digit losses in two distinct, yet still gut-wrenching, forms. (GoHeels.com)

Michael Jordan's estimated worth: $1 billion

Michael Jordan can be found near the top of seemingly every list that mentions his name. He's not close to the top of a new one, but he'll probably be just fine with that. Forbes magazine revealed its 29th annual World's Billionaires List and Jordan made the cut for the first time. With an estimated net worth of $1 billion, Jordan qualifies as the 1,741st richest person in the world, the magazine said. (ESPN.com)

Stuart Scott's Tenacity Permeates Unexpected Memoir

When the longtime ESPN anchor Stuart Scott quietly agreed to write a memoir last year, appendiceal cancer and chemotherapy were weakening him. His appearances on the network were dwindling.
