Joel Berry: "I put a lot on myself"

With only six regular season games left on North Carolina's basketball schedule, Joel Berry knows it’s time to step it up. And it’s not like Berry has hit a dramatic cold spell. Since his lowly 2 point total against Miami, UNC's point guard put up double figures in scoring in each of the past three games. That would be good enough for most guys, but Berry is different.

With season, program unraveling, Wolfpack tries to look forward

As the Wolfpack welcomes 10th-ranked UNC to PNC Arena tonight, it is a program in disarray. In the three weeks since N.C. State stunned Duke in Cameron Indoor Stadium, the season has come apart. There was a blowout loss at Louisville, home defeats to Syracuse and Miami and lifeless performances in road routs against Florida State and Wake Forest. (Fayetteville Observer)

Tar Heels brace for wounded Wolfpack

N.C. State isn't the only team looking for remedies. North Carolina is aiming for an on-court recovery as well. The Tar Heels go to N.C. State for a rematch of last month’s lopsided result. N.C. State has lost five games in a row and is one game away from being in last place. UNC is looking beyond the 107-56 whipping administered on the Wolfpack in Chapel Hill. (Burlington Times News)

Handicapping the final furlongs of a six-horse race in the ACC

Can the Tar Heels defend aggressively in slower paced games and run their half court offense effectively? This team much prefers a fast track. UNC has not won an ACC game without scoring at least 80 points. As the current leader, UNC has the best odds to win the ACC race. But be sure, these Tar Heels are no odds-on favorite. Very tough remaining schedule. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Theo Pinson vs. Division I: The Stat-Stuffing Showdown

RealGM lists 3,162 players who have played at least 100 minutes at at least 10 mpg (out of 4,785 players overall).

McGuire’s Miracle Documentary

The 60th anniversary documentary of "McGuire's Miracle" is centered around the events and characters that fueled one of the most storied collegiate sports seasons ever - that of the undefeated 1957 UNC men’s National Champion basketball team. This original documentary film will chronicle the story of the men who coached and played when Tar Heel basketball came of age. (Tar Heel Times)

UNC Hoping to Avoid a Letdown Wednesday at NC State

The Tar Heels thoroughly dominated the Wolfpack at the Smith Center back in January to the tune of a 51-point victory that ranks among the largest in ACC history. As UNC (21-5, 9-3 ACC) prepares to face NC State Wednesday night at PNC Arena, its focus is on forgetting the past–knowing that type of performance is just about impossible to recreate.

Seventh Woods shows improvement as UNC's basketball season progresses

The Duke game was the high point of a promising stretch from the young point guard. In his past three games, Seventh Woods has had seven assists and, more importantly, no turnovers. It helps that Woods is starting to turn the corner on some lingering injuries that impacted his play in the first half of the season. “Finally his body is getting healthy,” Roy Williams said. (Daily Tar Heel)

UNC faces an N.C. State team in turmoil

To call it a disappointing season for the NC State Wolfpack may be an understatement. The Wolfpack started the year with incredible hype thanks in large part to returning talent and incoming freshman phenom Dennis Smith Jr., but now, the Wolfpack are 3-10 in ACC play (second to last in the conference) and struggling to stay above .500 on the year. (Carolina Blue)

Theo Pinson's Contributions on Point for UNC

While the sample size has been small, Theo Pinson’s playing the best basketball of his North Carolina career this season. The Greensboro native is averaging 6.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, 3.3 assists and one steal per game, while also shooting 43.3 percent, all career highs. Pinson’s maturation as a player has been evident in his play and his stats. (Inside Carolina)

University of North Carolina sophomore guard Kenny Williams suffered an injury to his lower right extremity on Tuesday. His playing status for tomorrow night’s game at NC State is unknown. Senior forward Isaiah Hicks practiced this afternoon. His status for the NC State game will be a game time decision. (GoHeels.com)

UNC vs. N.C. State Preview

No. 10 North Carolina looks to bounce back from its loss at Duke with a win at N.C. State on Wednesday. The game tips at 8 p.m. and will be televised by the ACC Network. Not much is going right for head coach Mark Gottfried in his sixth season in Raleigh. The Wolfpack fell to Wake Forest on Saturday, 88-58, to bring its losing streak to five. (Inside Carolina)

UNC vs. N.C. State: A Game of Opposites

No. 10 North Carolina enters Wednesday’s matchup with N.C. State in contention for the ACC regular season title and a top seed in next month’s NCAA Tournament. The Wolfpack, on the other hand, is battling Boston College to avoid last place in the conference standings. Such is the diversion along Tobacco Road between these bitter rivals. (Inside Carolina)

Roy Williams Pre-NC State Press Conference Notes

As of Tuesday afternoon, Isaiah Hicks' status for the N.C. State game is to be determined. The UNC basketball staff will know more after Tuesday's practice. Roy Williams notes that Kennedy Meeks and Isaiah Hicks have both been out of practice this week. Hicks' issue is the hamstring, while Meeks seems more like a resting thing. (Carolina Blue)
