Video: The History Of Argyle At Carolina

Dean Smith asked clothing designer Alexander Julian to design new uniforms for the UNC men's basketball team. The linking diamonds that have been featured down the sides of Carolina’s jerseys and shorts since 1991-92 will soon be added to more UNC uniforms, thanks to a color and logo “refresh” announced by Nike and UNC Athletics.

With dates in Atlanta, Washington D.C., Richmond and across the state of North Carolina in April and May, the Tour is a great way to get closer to Tar Heel athletics. (GoHeels.com)

No, UNC Didn't Receive a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA

A minor firestorm erupted Tuesday night regarding a statement five star recruit Brandon Ingram made regarding something he'd been told by Roy Williams about the NCAA's investigation into Tar Heel athletics. Did UNC receive the notice of allegations from the NCAA and didn't release it? Actually no, according to a UNC spokesperson this morning, UNC has not received a notice of allegations.

Theo Pinson Preparing for Big Opportunity

A big opportunity awaits UNC wing Theo Pinson next season. But first he will have surgery to repair the foot injury that limited his freshman year. Pinson showed flashes of what made him a McDonald’s All-American in the class of 2014, before missing 14 of the Tar Heels’ final 19 games with a fractured fifth metatarsal in his left foot -- an injury he also sustained during his junior year of high school.

Season in review: Nate Britt

Britt is a back-up point guard and will likely continue in that role for the remainder of his UNC career. In the 2014-2015 season, Britt played in all 38 games (starting three) and averaged 15.3 minutes per game. He is a solid back-up, but will never be a big scorer or amazing offensive contributor. Last season, Britt scored in double figures seven times including 17 points against Syracuse. (Carolina Blue)

John Henson continues his vendetta against the color red

John Henson is known for his happy-go-lucky demeanor. More often than not a wide, innocent smile adorns his baby-faced visage. Henson doesn’t seem to hate many things....except the color red. As CJ Leslie’s therapist can attest, Henson delighted in emasculating those who chose to attire themselves in red. (Tar Heel Depot)

Video: UNC Athletes Dance to "Uptown Funk"

Watch Tar Heel athletes dance to "Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars. This video premiered at the 2015 Rammys on Monday night. View Video...

Tar Heels Celebrate At Rammys

The North Carolina Department of Athletics celebrated the successes of the past year Monday evening at the third-annual Rammy Awards. A full slate of awards recognized outstanding academics, athletics and service. The evening also included student-athlete musical performances, videos and the introduction of UNC’s refreshed logo and other marks. (GoHeels.com)

UNC Athletics and Nike Refresh Tar Heels’ Brand Identity

UNC has long been known for its distinct logos and unique shade of blue. In partnership with Nike, UNC Athletics refreshed its marks and colors to create a consistent look to one of the most recognized brands in college sports. UNC and Nike collaborated on the brand evolution program over 18 months, consulting with student-athletes, coaches, administrators and alumni to gather insights on key attributes of the institution.

Marcus Paige Undergoes Ankle Surgery Monday

UNC men’s basketball guard Marcus Paige underwent successful arthroscopic surgery Monday to remove bone spurs in his right ankle. Paige is expected to resume basketball activities this summer. The junior from Marion, Iowa, earned Carolina’s Most Valuable Player honors for the second consecutive year. Dr. Robert Anderson performed the surgery at the Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.

Player Review: Justin Jackson

Justin Jackson entered this season with enormous expectations heaped upon his slender shoulders. A consensus top-ten recruit, Jackson was expected to be the solution to the scoring woes that UNC faced most of last season, and very early on, that is exactly what he was. In his first three games as a collegian, Jackson scored a very efficient 40 points. (Tar Heel Blog)

Season in review: Isaiah Hicks

During the 2014-2015 season, Hicks made the jump from an ineffective freshman playing out of position to a productive and quality reserve as a sophomore. Playing in all 38 games (started three) as a power forward, the Oxford (N.C.) native provided energy and athleticism off the bench. He proved to be a good rebounder, using his size and leaping ability, while also a decent scorer within 10 feet. (Carolina Blue)

Hornets’ PJ Hairston showed shooting potential

P.J. Hairston is guaranteed about $1.2 million next season under the rookie pay scale. The Hornets have two one-season options after that. Charlotte Hornets coach Steve Clifford has said Hairston has the talent to eventually be an NBA starter. He needs to spend the summer becoming more consistent from NBA 3-point range and to get in better shape. (Charlotte Observer)

Marvin Williams one of low-maintenence Hornets

Charlotte Hornets forward Marvin Williams had a solid season whether coach Steve Clifford asked him to start or come off the bench behind Cody Zeller. Williams is low-maintenance, as illustrated by his not particularly caring whether starts. He doesn’t figure to pout next season if Zeller and Noah Vonleh get expanded roles at power forward and Clifford can fit him in at small forward. (Charlotte Observer)

Celtics' Zeller set for return to Cleveland

Tyler Zeller isn't sure how the fans will react when his name is announced as a starter before his Celtics take on the Cavaliers at 3 p.m. Sunday in Cleveland in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference opening-round series. Will the Cavs fans boo him because he plays for the Celtics or will they cheer him because he played the first two of his three NBA seasons in Cleveland? (Worcester Telegram)
