Road Swing Begins At Davidson

North Carolina (2-0) will play its first road game of the 2014-15 season when it plays at Davidson (2-0) on Saturday at 2 p.m. The game will be played at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte. Carolina is coming off a pair of home wins over North Carolina Central and Robert Morris, while Davidson has started the campaign 2-0 with home wins over Catholic and Campbell. (GoHeels.com)

Lucas: UNC Basketball Notebook

Tomorrow marks UNC’s first regular-season game in Charlotte since the 2007-08 season opener. That game was also against Davidson, and featured a 72-68 Tar Heel win. Although it feels like Roy Williams has spent more time in Charlotte than this because of various ACC and NCAA Tournament appearances, this is just the fourth regular season game in the Queen City during the Williams era.

Wayne Ellington's Return Boosts Lakers

Following an unexpected tragedy in every sense of the word, Los Angeles Lakers' shooting guard Wayne Ellington suddenly left the team to be with his family. Ellington's father had been shot in his head while driving his 2001 Oldsmobile in Philadelphia. Wayne Ellington Sr. would die early Monday morning. (NBC Los Angeles)

UNC to Learn on the Road

No. 6 North Carolina will play its next four games away from the Dean E. Smith Center, its longest road stretch of the season. A lot more will be known about this Tar Heel squad once it returns from the Bahamas next weekend. After back-to-back seasons with unbalanced roster and varying degrees of turmoil, this UNC lineup seems relatively straightforward. (Inside Carolina)

Previewing Davidson

North Carolina and its 2-0 record travel to Charlotte on Saturday to face Davidson, a team that took the Tar Heels to overtime a year ago in Chapel Hill. Tip-off at Time Warner Cable Arena is set for 2 p.m. and the game will be televised locally by TWC Sports. Davidson enters Saturday’s contest with a 2-0 record. The Wildcats routed Catholic, 102-66 and then topped Campbell, 86-51. (Inside Carolina)

Marcus Ginyard's Journey to the D-League

Known as a defensive stopper in his time as a Tar Heel, Marcus Ginyard won a National Championship at North Carolina in 2009. Since, basketball has taken him to Germany, Israel, Poland and Ukraine. Now 27, he’s back in the United States, playing just up the road for the Westchester Knicks. This is his story. (SLAM Online)

Know Your Opponent: Davidson

Brian Sullivan is back for Davidson, and Tar Heel fans will remember him. He dropped 33 in the Smith Center a year ago, including seven 3s. Fellow captains and returning standouts Tyler Kalinoski (11.0 points and 5.0 rebounds per game in 2013-14) and Jack Gibbs also return for the Wildcats. Kalinoski was actually Davidson’s most efficient offensive player a season ago. (GoHeels.com)

Carolina Rundown: November 21

Start your day with highlights from last night's Bell-ringing win. There's a Roy Williams press conference this afternoon in advance of the Davidson game. Loren Shealy won the prestigious Elite 89 award at the field hockey Final Four (for the third time). Jonas Sahratian would be proud as Danny Green shares his eating and nutrition picks.

Vince Carter is finally forgiven and it should change his legacy

The legacy of Vince Carter has always been a bit tough to figure out. Carter is a supremely talented player who showcased some of the best finishing we have ever seen, yet any time his legacy comes up in discussion things seemed to turn sour thanks to the way Carter’s career as a Toronto Raptor ended. (Hardwood Paroxysm)

Larry Brown 'worried' by UNC scandal

SMU coach and North Carolina alum Larry Brown has been keeping close tabs on the academic scandal enveloping his alma mater and said he is especially concerned that it could stain a man he has long revered. "Absolutely I'm worried about it," Brown said after the Mustangs' shootaround at Indiana on Thursday. (ESPN.com)

Turner's Take: Clicking

A week into the season, it’s clear that Roy Williams has one of his deepest teams at Carolina, with scorers, rebounders and facilitators aplenty. But alone, talented depth does not make for a winning team. Ingredients do not make the cake. They key is in the recipe: getting that talent to play well together, having players that know how to put their teammates in a position to succeed. (GoHeels.com)

Carolina Rundown: November 20

The Raptors paid tribute to Vince Carter, and it brought him to tears. Ty Lawson had 15 points and 15 assists. Brandan Wright had 14 points and six rebounds. Wayne Ellington may be back with the Lakers tomorrow. Giovani Bernard is back at practice for the Bengals. The field hockey team has arrived in Maryland for tomorrow's Final Four matchup with Syracuse. (GoHeels.com)

How is Brandan Wright so efficient?

Brandan Wright gets easy buckets for a living. That's a heck of a lot harder to do in the NBA than it sounds. Wright does it as well as anyone, which is why he leads the league in field-goal percentage, hitting exactly three-quarters of his shots so far this season. Wright shot 67.7 percent from the floor last season and sits at 63.6 percent over his three-plus years with the Dallas Mavericks. (ESPN.com)

James Michael McAdoo doing well in NBA D-league

Former North Carolina star James Michael McAdoo has gotten off to a great start in the NBA Development League. McAdoo, who was cut by the Golden State Warriors after going undrafted last spring, signed with the Santa Cruz Warriors. In two games, he’s averaging 22 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 blocks and 2.5 steals. (Virginian-Pilot)
