Lucas: Frederick Enjoying Coaching Role

Brad Frederick picked a good time to go back on the recruiting trail. After four seasons as UNC's director of operations, Frederick moved into an assistant coaching role this spring when C.B. McGrath accepted the head coaching job at UNCW. That meant Frederick was back in high school gyms as a member of the newly minted national championship coaching staff. (GoHeels.com)

Hurricane Harvey dropped nearly 52 inches of rain in the Houston area.

Summer of Theo Pinson

Theo Pinson had more reasons than ever to sport a grin throughout this summer. After all, he’s several months removed from becoming a national champion and he’s fully healthy. “The way my career has gone, it feels great to go through a summer healthy instead of rehab,” said Pinson, who has missed 33 games over his first three UNC seasons due to injury.

Jawad Williams on Life and Basketball in Japan

Jawad Williams: Thirteen years into my professional basketball career and I find myself in a very familiar place: Japan. The fact that my wife and I got engaged here is another reason Japan has always had a place in our hearts. I am a firm believer in speaking things into existence and I always said I would one day return to Japan to play. Ten years later, here I am. (Jawad Williams)

Justin Jackson Seeks to Help Hometown of Houston

Though Justin Jackson is just getting settled into his new city, his hometown has been dealing with the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. The storm has caused catastrophic damage and unprecedented levels of flooding to an area where Jackson and much of his friends and family originate. On Tuesday, No. 25 joined the efforts to help those affected by the storm. (Sacramento Kings)

UNC Basketball Contributes Gear to Houston Flood Relief

University of Houston head basketball coach Kelvin Sampson put out the request for help and college teams across the country have pitched in. UNC basketball was one of the teams that answered the call. Houston and surrounding area have experience record flooding and devastation for the last few days. The damage and rebuild will go on for years. (Inside Carolina)

Examining UNC basketball lineup combinations

Roy Williams certainly is not changing the principles upon which his system thrives. UNC isn't going to abandon the secondary break or their motion offense for a Kentucky-styled dribble-drive philosophy or start regularly shooting 30 three-point attempts per game. However, it’s fair to think that there will be some non-traditional UNC lineups that take the floor. (Tar Heel Blog)

Triangle basketball teams chip in to help Houston

Besieged by good wishes from coaching friends in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Houston basketball coach Kelvin Sampson wanted to turn positive thoughts into action.

Chansky’s Notebook: A Chance Visit

Less than a mile away, I came to the old Owen High School: a modest one-floor building that was now the community’s middle school. At one end was a building marked “gymnasium.” This is where Roy Williams began his coaching career, and after five seasons as head coach gave it up to enter college basketball. I thought about the crossroads we all face in life. (Chapelboro.com)

UNC basketball: 2016-2017 season may be Roy Williams’ greatest yet

Objectively, this was Roy’s finest coaching year of the fourteen he’s had at UNC. Think about it: this team had the least amount of NBA talent of the three that have won a title with Roy as coach. They also had the crushing weight of expectations. Almost all of us had redemption as a goal for this season after The Shot, and it became known that the players had that goal, too. (Tar Heel Blog)
