SI College Basketball Power Rankings: A week into the regular season

3. North Carolina Tar Heels: I say this with the asterisk that the Tar Heels have yet to play a marquee opponent, but point guard Joel Berry II is off to an absurdly good start that, if it continues, will warrant him being in the national player of the year conversation. Berry’s impact on both ends of the court has been immense. (Sports Illustrated)

Effort Elevating Kenny Williams' Play

For a player billed as perimeter shooter coming out of high school, Kenny Williams has emerged as a fan favorite in short order due to his effort, above all else. North Carolina is only three games into its 2016-17 season and it’s already commonplace to see Williams, a sophomore wing, diving for loose balls, battling for rebounds and taking charges.

How To Watch The UNC-Hawaii Game

Tar Heels assistant coach sits out Hawaii trip

UNC’s men’s basketball team left Wednesday for a Hawaiian trip without assistant coach Steve Robinson, who’s staying behind because of a blood clot in his right leg. He has been advised to avoid airline flights. “He had a great line,” Roy Williams said. “He said he wished it happened next week, then he could have stayed in Hawaii for a month.” (Burlington Times News)

Grizzlies' Brandan Wright has ankle surgery, reportedly out two months

Memphis Grizzlies big man Brandan Wright had surgery on his injured left ankle on Tuesday, the team announced. According to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski, Wright will be sidelined for two months.

UNC basketball's trio of freshmen playing together and growing as a group

The North Carolina Tar Heels knew they were getting three special players in freshmen Tony Bradley, Seventh Woods and Brandon Robinson. The trio would be part of the future, building a foundation in Chapel Hill for years to come. But with injuries to Theo Pinson and Luke Maye, the young group has seen more minutes, particularly at the same time. (Carolina Blue)

Joel Berry’s Quest for the Rafters

Based simply on Joel Berry’s basic boxscore stats, it’s clear that he’s off to a ridiculously strong start to his junior campaign. He’s parlayed a 62.1%/53.3%/90.9% shooting line into 21.3 points per game, while maintaining a Ty Lawson-like 4.33:1 assist-to-turnover ratio. He’s also drawing fouls at an elite level.

Jerry Stackhouse learning to delegate with Raptors905

There is no doubt Jerry Stackhouse is a hands-on basketball coach. He’s out scrimmaging with his players, going through extended three-on-three workouts, always testing them in his unique way. But as he prepares for his first season as a professional head coach, Stackhouse is learning that stepping back a bit isn’t a bad idea. (Toronto Star)

Tony Bradley on flying to Hawaii and clipboards breaking

What did you think when Coach Williams broke the clipboard during a timeout? UNC freshman Tony Bradley: "I was surprised. He punched it and it split in half. He got my attention. My eyebrows kind of raised up. Today was my first experience going through that." On going to Hawaii for a week: "I am excited, except for the flight there. I am not a fan of that." (Carolina Blue)

Seventh still seeking his game, to hear his name

Seventh Woods, who dished out a game-high six assists in UNC’s 93–67 blowout Tuesday of Long Beach State, is just as frustrated with his play so far. And he confirms that Roy Williams calls him Sixth or Eighth, but not Seventh. “He just wants me to be aggressive on the defensive end. I don’t think I’ve played aggressive enough since I got here,” said Woods. (Raleigh & Company)
