Mavs believe Harrison Barnes is an All-Star in the making

Harrison Barnes entered Saturday’s game in Orlando averaging 22.2 points and 5.6 rebounds per game. After averaging 11.7 points last season, Barnes has increased his scoring average by 10.5 points, the highest in the NBA. From Mark Cuban’s perspective, Barnes, who helped the Warriors win the 2015 NBA title, is decisively better than he thought he would be. (Fort Worth Star-Telegram)

Old Man, Still Amazing: A Changed Vince Carter Still Making Big Plays in Memphis

Watch someone long enough, as Vince Carter is allowing us to watch him, and you see the same stuff, except from new perspectives. It was without trepidation that Carter ferociously rammed both ball and arm deep into that net in the 2000 NBA Slam Dunk Contest. Same sort of thing when he soared up and over 7'2" Frederic Weis in the Olympics mere months later. (Bleacher Report)

North Carolina’s bench made 9 of 19 shots from the floor and combined for 28 points. Tony Bradley had 10 points, Seventh Woods had seven, Kenny Williams had six and Brandon Robinson had five. Freshman Tony Bradley scored in double figures for the fourth straight game (most to start a career since Brandan Wright did it in the first 18 games in 2006-07). (GoHeels.com)

Lucas: Hungry And Humble

Carolina’s players are accustomed to trying to make fast exits after road games. After Friday night’s 83-68 win at Hawaii, with no shower facilities available, it looked like a quick departure was imminent. A couple of the freshmen—already well aware not to be last—were already on the bus when Roy Williams began asking his players to return to the court. (GoHeels.com)

Roy Williams Post-Hawaii Interview

Roy Williams: "That was one of the ugliest games I’ve ever coached. We made some shots during the stretch in the second half that gave us the lead. Noah Allen, No. 32, he was a man out there today. Sheriff [Drammeh] had made it tough on us. He didn’t have a great night putting the ball in the basket, but he made it tough on us trying to get the ball out of his hands." (Inside Carolina)

No. 5 North Carolina pulls away to beat Hawaii

Before heading to Maui, No. 5 North Carolina survived a test in Manoa in an 83-68 win over Hawaii at a sold-out Stan Sheriff Center. The Rainbow Warriors stayed within sight of the Tar Heels deep into the second half before a crowd of 9,211. UH closed to within eight with 5:56 left, but the Tar Heels broke away with an 8-0 run and held on to improve to 4-0. (Honolulu Star-Adviser)

Recap: UNC 83, Hawaii 68

North Carolina used a strong second half shooting performance to pull away from Hawaii and leave Honolulu with a 83-68 victory and advance to 4-0 on the year. The game was close at times, but the Tar Heels maintained a double digit lead for most of the second half, nailing a basket whenever the Rainbow Warriors got close. (Carolina Blue)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - UNC vs. Hawaii

Carolina didn't win Friday night's (or Saturday morning's, depending on where you're located) game by playing that much better than Hawaii. Instead, the Tar Heels did it by being relentless on the glass and chasing down just enough misses to turn them into points. UNC held a whopping 17-4 edge in second chance points in a game they won by 15 points. (GoHeels.com)

Carolina Beats Hawai'i, 83-68
