No. 11 UNC blows big lead, holds off Wake Forest 93-87

Justin Jackson hit a huge 3-pointer with 1:03 left and No. 11 North Carolina did just enough to hold off Wake Forest 93-87 on Wednesday night. Jackson finished with 19 points for the Tar Heels (15-3, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), while Kennedy Meeks added 18 points and 11 rebounds. UNC twice blew second-half leads when it was in control.

Tar Heels Beat Wake Forest, 93-87

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - UNC vs. Wake Forest

Huge free throws by Isaiah Hicks with 31 seconds left and Kenny Williams with 19 seconds remaining. The senior knocked in the front end of a one-and-one in a three-point game, then followed by hitting the second. Then Williams also converted both ends of a one-and-one that stretched the lead to 91-84. That essentially sealed the game for the Tar Heels in a big road win. (GoHeels.com)

Pinson primed to provide backcourt boost for Heels at Wake Forest

This is like coming full circle for North Carolina junior Theo Pinson. When the No. 11 Tar Heels play Wednesday at Wake Forest (8 pm, ESPN2), it will be almost two full years since he suffered a broken foot at Lawrence Joel Coliseum and missed the next 10 days. Now, he's freshly back from another broken foot and ready to make an impact for the rest of the season. (WRAL Sports Fan)

UNC men's basketball follows footsteps of Marcus Paige, Brice Johnson

Before the 2016-17 season, the North Carolina men’s basketball team was treated to a new locker room and player’s lounge. The renovations cost around $5 million dollars and included a Jordan shoe wall with every Nike Air Jordan shoe ever made in Carolina Blue. Massive pictures of two of Roy Williams’ favorite Tar Heels were added into the locker room. (Daily Tar Heel)

Know Your Opponent: Wake Forest

Wake Forest is in the midst of a run of games that could define its season. The Demon Deacons sit at 1-3 in the ACC with losses to Florida State, Clemson and Virginia. Their next five games - UNC, Miami, at NCSU, at Syracuse and Duke - will likely determine whether or not they have a legitimate shot at returning to the NCAA tournament. (GoHeels.com)

Three to know: No. 11 North Carolina at Wake Forest

Coming into the season, many knew that Wake Forest’s John Collins and Bryant Crawford would be solid ACC players. But few would have predicted that the sophomores would be among the league’s best. That fact presents tonight’s showdown with North Carolina with some fun individual matchups. UNC point guard Joel Berry gets another test. (Fayetteville Observer)

Pinson's return could bring more cheers for Tar Heels

Theo Pinson heard the cheers when he entered a game for the first time this season. The North Carolina junior appreciated the support. “Everybody likes to be loved a little bit,” he said. The Tar Heels have been gushing about Pinson and what he might provide the rest of the way after missing more than two months of action because of a broken foot. (Burlington Times News)

The Best (and Worst) UNC Performances vs. Wake Forest

Let’s take a look back at the Carolina-Wake rivalry since Roy Williams has been back in Chapel Hill. While the Tar Heels have certainly gotten the better of the Deacs during the Williams era, it hasn’t been nearly as one-sided as the series with the Wolfpack. UNC is 12-5 against Wake Forest under Williams, and they’ve exceeded their expectations in eight of those games. (The Secondary Break)

Justin Jackson’s Development as a Shooter

After making just 1.17 3-pointers per 40 minutes at a rate of 29.7% through his first two seasons, Justin Jackson has improved those numbers to 3.17 and 38.7% after 17 games of his junior season. His 3-point volume and efficiency have significantly increased season-over-season—a testament to the feedback he received from NBA scouts, and the hard work he put in. (The Secondary Break)

Clippers' Brice Johnson Not expected back in near future

Coach Doc Rivers said Sunday that he doesn't anticipate Brice Johnson getting on the floor anytime soon. Johnson, who has been sidelined all season while recovering from a herniated disc in his lower back, has increased his on-court activity of late for the Clippers. However, Rivers' comments suggest that Johnson could be multiple weeks away from taking the court. (CBS Sports)

Theo Pinson working way back as UNC travels to Wake Forest

This is like coming full circle for North Carolina junior Theo Pinson. When the No. 11 Tar Heels play Wednesday night at Wake Forest, it will be almost two full years since he suffered a broken foot at Lawrence Joel Coliseum and missed the next 10 days. Now, he's freshly back from another broken foot and ready to make an impact for the rest of the season. (Yahoo! Sports)

North Carolina energized by return of Theo Pinson

North Carolina didn’t have a 50-point win for 16 games this season. Theo Pinson made his debut Sunday against NC State, and the Tar Heels won 107-56. Coincidence? Pinson would say not. But that’s just Theo. The undeniable clown prince of UNC basketball -- as comfortable crashing coach Roy Williams’ news conferences as he is crashing the boards -- is back. (ESPN.com)
