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)

Ed Cota tops list of college basketball cult heroes

As a four-year starter, Ed Cota helped lead UNC to three Final Four appearances by dropping dimes to his more touted teammates (Video: UNC Highlights). He’s still UNC’s all-time assist leader, and it isn’t even close — his 1,030 career assists are the third most in NCAA history. Cota is the perfect example of cult hero within college basketball.

When his agent told him about AmeriCup tryouts a few weeks ago, Kendall Marshall didn’t know much about the event. “Honestly, nothing,” Marshall joked. “I couldn’t tell you one thing about it.” But it was basketball. It was competing against like-minded athletes trying to make the NBA. It was playing for coach Jeff Van Gundy. “So I jumped on it,” Marshall said. (Inside Carolina)

Nine former North Carolina basketball players take on the 2017 NBA Summer League

Justin Jackson stood out. The Sacramento Kings forward topped all former Tar Heels with 16.7 points per game in six contests in the 2017 NBA Summer League. While Jackson’s team struggled to a 2-4 record in Las Vegas, he was a bright spot and continued to show his aggressiveness as a shooter. Any doubt that his floater could fall in the NBA was answered.

Candid Coaches: Will the NCAA take titles away from UNC or Louisville?

Coaches don't see it their place to publicly comment on other active cases. But given a cloak of anonymity, the opinions came flying out -- and they are diverse. We asked coaches not if they thought it was right for the NCAA to vacate championship titles from Louisville and North Carolina, but if they expected the NCAA to do so. Those are two very different questions. (CBS Sports)
