All Hands On Deck For Tar Heels

In order to defeat Notre Dame, the Tar Heels needed contributions from everyone Roy Williams called on, and that is what happened in UNC’s 83-76 victory at the Greensboro Coliseum. Six Tar Heels scored in double figures, but all ten that got on the floor did something that enabled the Heels to leave with a victory and in firm control of first place in the ACC. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Tar Heels thrive in 'weird' situation against Notre Dame

Technically, it will go down as a neutral-site game. But the Tar Heels felt at home in front of the Greensboro crowd of 17,051. UNC had six players score in double figures. The Tar Heels have won more games in program history in the city of Greensboro than any other place outside of Chapel Hill, with the majority of those wins in ACC and NCAA tournament games.

UNC’s unexpected visit to Greensboro could be ACC’s farewell

Under normal circumstances, North Carolina’s unexpected trip to the Greensboro Coliseum on Sunday would have been a precursor to the Tar Heels beginning the NCAA tournament next month on the same floor, where they have enjoyed such success in the past. The Tar Heels’ 7-0 NCAA record here is one of so many deep ties to this building, for both UNC and Notre Dame. (Charlotte Observer)

Amid a strange situation, Tar Heels avoid awkward ending to defeat Notre Dame

There were so many strange components involving the Notre Dame / North Carolina men's basketball game that the No. 12 Tar Heels wanted to make sure there wasn’t a totally unusual ending Sunday at the Greensboro Coliseum. With that, they made enough plays in the final minutes to repel No. 20 Notre Dame 83-76 and remain alone in first place in the ACC. (Burlington Times News)

Crowd Becomes UNC's 6th Man in Greensboro

Roy Williams did not want to leave Chapel Hill to face off against No. 20 Notre Dame. But the Tar Heel fans packed the Greensboro Coliseum and and provided an atmosphere that rivaled - if not surpassed - a big night at the Smith Center. Added Williams: “The people here today, I’m thrilled. I wish I could say thank you to every single one of them because they were important to us winning the game.” (Inside Carolina)

Tar Heels savor a now-rare trip to their second home

Kennedy Meeks first came to games at Greensboro Coliseum to watch his childhood buddy, former Florida State guard Ian Miller, play in the ACC tournament. Later, Meeks played on the court himself during the ACC tournament as a freshman at UNC. Sunday's 83-76 win against No. 20 Notre Dame gave Meeks' younger teammates their first chance to play in the building. (Fayetteville Observer)

UNC's Roy Williams blasts HB2 law after win in Greensboro

North Carolina's House Bill 2 has stirred up controversy ever since it was passed by the North Carolina General Assembly. Following the Tar Heels' 83-76 win over Notre Dame in the Greensboro Coliseum, Roy Williams had some choice words on the law. "I’m glad some people in Greensboro got to see us play. I think that’s ridiculous in what it’s doing to our state." (Carolina Blue)

Return to Greensboro produces nostalgia, Tar Heel win

The ghosts were there. That section of floor over there is where P.J. Hairston bled during the ACC Tournament semis in 2013. That spot is where Kendall Marshall broke his wrist in the NCAA’s first weekend back in 2012. That spot over there is where the Irish celebrated their title win over the Heels in ’15. Carolina and Notre Dame threw their best haymakers. (Carolina Blue)

Water trumps as king of NC sports, brings ACC basketball back to Tourney Town

In the last year it seems two things have taken over sports in North Carolina: HB2 and weather..er..water. The latest installment: Sunday’s UNC versus Notre Dame game, which was moved to the Greensboro Coliseum because of a water main break and state of emergency in Chapel Hill, gifting the old Tourney Town that North Carolinians know a Sunday matinee matchup.

No. 12 UNC Holds Off Notre Dame, Picks Up Win in Greensboro Coliseum

The emergency water shortage in Chapel Hill forced UNC and Notre Dame into playing Sunday’s game at the Greensboro Coliseum. Home to the ACC Tournament for many years, the famed building added a tournament-like atmosphere to this midseason top 25 showdown, as the 12th-ranked Tar Heels held off the No. 20 Fighting Irish down the stretch for an 83-76 victory.

UNC-Notre Dame Postgame Quotes

Roy Williams: "Well, feel better than Mike [Brey]’s club feels right now, but it was a heck of a game. They’re hard to guard. They put so much pressure on you. During the course of the game, I thought they were shooting about 70 percent from three, and I look down and they shot about the same thing we did. They’re really hard to guard." (GoHeels.com)

Lucas: Big Words

There are more elements of coaching than just what you see on the sideline. Sure, there are offensive and defensive sets to call, and substitutions to make, and timeouts to call. But a great deal of coaching—the part that can eventually get you into the Hall of Fame, and helps you win over 800 basketball games—takes place where very few people ever see it. (GoHeels.com)
