Lucas: Rapid Reactions - UNC vs. Clemson

That was an incredibly gritty, tough, nail-biting, heart-pumping win--or, in other words, your average ACC road win. Other than a stretch in the second half when Joel Berry ignited, it wasn't pretty, but it was a huge overtime road win at Clemson to even the league mark at 1-1. Thank you, thank you, thank you Kenny Williams. (GoHeels.com)

Jackson credits work, aggression for improved play

A clear bright spot in the 2016-17 season has been the play of junior Justin Jackson. Needing to step up big this season, the 6-8 small forward has done just that. It's been a transformation from shooting inconsistencies in his first two seasons to high level scoring and shooting in year three. (Carolina Blue)

Surging Clemson aims to keep pace with Tar Heels

Despite building momentum and facing an opponent that gives Clemson a shot at a marquee win in the early part of the ACC schedule, head coach Brad Brownell isn’t letting Tuesday's 7 p.m. home showdown with No. 14 North Carolina be more than what it is. “It’s another game against one of the name brands in college basketball, but it’s still only worth one,” Brownell said.

Conference basketball power rankings: ACC has big lead

By far the most consensus top-50 teams (more than double any other league), and the most top-50 wins makes the ACC the runaway champ here. The ACC is a lock to land at least eight teams in the NCAA Tournament. Getting 11 in is not out of the question. Every night in league play is going to be interesting because there will be good teams playing on the road. (CBS Sports)

Three to know: No. 14 North Carolina at Clemson

If the first weekend of ACC play taught us one thing, it’s that nothing will come easily. Tonight’s game against Clemson looms large. The Tar Heels last started 0-2 in ACC play during the 2013-14 season. That team, which lost its first three league games, never really recovered, finishing in a tie for third in the ACC and losing in the NCAA tournament’s round of 32. (Fayetteville Observer)

Know Your Opponent: Clemson

With Jaron Blossomgame back in the fold, Clemson coach Brad Brownell boasts one of the most seasoned rosters in college basketball. Both Blossomgame and fellow guard Avry Holmes are playing as graduate students, while 6-10 center Sidy Djitte adds a third four-year player to the mix. You've got five upperclassmen in a rotation that goes eight deep. (GoHeels.com)

Lucas: Taking Control

Dropping the first road ACC game of the season isn’t unfamiliar territory for the Tar Heels. The powerhouse 2012 club lost a 33-point debacle at Florida State, and the eventual 2009 national champions lost at Wake Forest. But some corrections are needed to avoid a perilous 0-2 start with a visit from NC State on the horizon. (GoHeels.com)

Streaking Clemson catches No. 14 UNC off a loss

The Tar Heels are opening ACC play with consecutive road games for only the 10th time — the first time since 2003. They lost both only once — in 1980. (FOX Sports)

Julius Peppers on Dean Smith

Julius Peppers: "I used to see Coach Smith all the time. He used to always hang around the practices, even though he wasn't the coach. He was the greatest coach of all time in college basketball, and we learned so many things from him off the court. How to be a man. Coach Smith, he taught us a lot. And just acknowledging of others who helped you." (Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune)

Roy Williams Live: Nate Britt Bounce Back

Despite leading UNC in defensive player of the game awards with five, Nate Britt has struggled mightily on the offensive end of the floor. Those efforts prompted Roy Williams to challenge his senior guard before Saturday’s game at Georgia Tech. The challenge seemed to work. Britt had the only positive performance, scoring 13 points and grabbing 5 steals. (Inside Carolina)
