Roy Williams 'doing OK' following collapse

North Carolina was on the ropes at Boston College, trying to avoid its third straight loss after a terrible first half, but even more concerning was an apparent health scare for head coach Roy Williams. Luckily the No. 9 Tar Heels were able to escape with a 68-65 win, but the primary concern right now is the health of the head coach. (CBS Sports)

With Roy Williams sick, No. 9 North Carolina beats BC 68-65

Playing most of the second half without coach Roy Williams, who left the bench after complaining of vertigo, No. 9 North Carolina rallied to beat Boston College 68-65 on Tuesday thanks to 20 points from Justin Jackson.

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Boston College

As you would expect when the head coach leaves the bench in the middle of the game, the Tar Heels looked rattled for the next couple of minutes. But then they got back in a rhythm late, enough to make the final minutes very tense against a BC club that entered the game winless in the league. Official word on Roy Williams was that his absence was vertigo related. (GoHeels.com)

Kings will keep George Karl as coach, work on 'issues' collectively

With all of the never-ending drama and recent reports, it seemed like the Sacramento Kings would be firing head coach George Karl in the coming days. The Kings just had a miserable showing in the first half against the Boston Celtics on Sunday and then on Monday, there was a report that Karl would be fired before the All-Star break. (CBS Sports)

Three Main Areas for Improvement for UNC Basketball

After back-to-back ACC road losses to Louisville and Notre Dame, it's time for reflection. How can UNC get back to their winning ways? How can UNC return to consistent, high-level basketball that was exhibited during their 12-game winning streak from December 16th to the February 1st lost to Louisville? Here are three main areas for improvement: (Carolina Blue)

Marcus Paige, UNC look for formula to break out of two-game slump

If you think that a shooting slump results in a lot of advice only for that player, think again: Sometimes the training staff hears it, too. During Marcus Paige's recent six-game stretch of struggles from the floor, an email landed with UNC's medical people. It suggested they outfit Paige with a mouthpiece. Because a mouthpiece would relax entire his body. And that would fix him. (Campus Rush)

Preview & Prediction: #9 UNC at Boston College

Lineup change? With UNC looking to break a two game skid and an imminently winnable game on the schedule, Roy Williams was asked last night during his radio program if a lineup change was in the offing. His answer? Maybe. It happened last season when the Tar Heels traveled to Boston College. Prediction: UNC 88, Boston College 59 (Tar Heel Blog)

Know Your Opponent: Boston College

Boston College's three-game road trip did not get any better after the Eagles left Chapel Hill, as Jim Christian's team lost 61-47 at Virginia and 79-47 at Louisville to fall to 0-10 in league play. The performance at Louisville was particularly bleak, with the offense mustering just 47 points in 65 possessions, including 14 in the first 20 minutes. (GoHeels.com)

UNC at Boston College, three to know preview

The Tar Heels are now a half-game ahead of Louisville (8-3 ACC) and Virginia (8-3). Miami (7-3) is only one game back. The cushion from a fast start against a relatively friendly schedule is gone. Tonight, UNC closes its stretch of three straight road games, and last-place Boston College has lost all four of its ACC home games by at least 10 points. (Fayetteville Observer)

Tar Heels Visit Boston College Tuesday

The Tar Heels and Eagles will tip off at 8:05 p.m. in the Conte Forum. Tim Brando (play-by-play) and Cory Alexander (analyst) will call the game for an ACC Network syndicated television audience.

Roy Williams Live: Contemplating Lineup Changes

In February 2015, Roy Williams decided to switch up his starting lineup on a road trip to Boston College after several days of talking about urgency and commitment. One year later, the Hall of Fame coach is discussing similar topics and considering lineup adjustments once again before facing the Eagles on the road on Tuesday. (Inside Carolina)

Tyler Zeller has been stellar since opportunity arrived

What's most impressive is that Tyler Zeller, with 18 DNPs this season, has been a consistent late-game presence after being glued to the bench for much of the season. His professionalism in not only accepting a diminished role -- Zeller started 59 games while appearing in all 82 tilts last season -- but staying ready for when his number was called is not lost on his teammates.
