UNC Basketball's 'All-Williams Team'

Tar Heels with the last name "Williams" have had a pretty significant impact on North Carolina basketball, especially over the last quarter century. Kenny Williams, who announced this past weekend he's headed to Chapel Hill, will be the eighth UNC basketball player ever named Williams. Aside from Lloyd Williams, each of the others have played over the last 29 years dating back to California native Scott Williams' freshman season in 1986-87. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

UNC Basketball 2014-15 Season Review

Art’s Angle: Sulaimon From Duke To UNC?

You know, if he wanted to, Carolina wanted him and Duke didn’t object, Rasheed Sulaimon could play for the Tar Heels next season. And, when you think about it, that would make for a pretty cool story and another chapter in the closest rivalry in college basketball. Sulaimon wouldn’t even have to move from his apartment in Durham! After all, it’s only eight miles over here. Here is how it would work, if it were to work. (Chapelboro.com)

Joel Berry Enjoying the Journey

Joel Berry II averaged 13.2 minutes, 4.2 points and 1.5 assists per game. Like freshman counterpart Justin Jackson, he played his best basketball in March. “I can honestly say that by the end of the season, everything we prayed for had happened,” Joel Berry Sr. explained. Surprisingly, he attributes his son’s end-of-year surge to the groin injury he suffered midway through the season. (Inside Carolina)

Spurs' Danny Green: 'Things may be changing'

Danny Green, who turns 28 in June, is in line for a big payday. He's one of the best perimeter defenders and 3-point shooters in the NBA, which is a hard combination to find. Green will be a free agent in the summer, and he wants to remain where he is. "Hopefully, I'll be back,” he said. “I love San Antonio." He knows, however, that there's no guarantee the Spurs will look the same next season. (CBS Sports)

Ty Lawson's time in Denver may be nearing the end

As with pretty much anything that hits the Internet, even if it's deleted, it doesn't mean it's gone. Ty Lawson knows that. His last basketball-related words as a Nuggets player could be a simple, fateful phrase. "I wish." Last week on Instagram he was asked by a Dallas Mavericks fan to come play for Dallas. His reply: "I wish." (Denver Post)

Craig Ehlo Still Recovering Following Michael Jordan's Famous Shot

Eras apart, we have a renewal of the rivalry between the franchises of Jordan and James. A bridge between them is named Craig Ehlo. More than a quarter-century ago, Ehlo took on the challenge of stopping Michael Jordan in the first of Jordan’s many iconic N.B.A. moments. More recently, he befriended LeBron James. “The first four or five years after it happened, it was, like, enough, let’s move on,” Ehlo said. (New York Times)

One Last ‘Crack’ For Marcus Paige, Tar Heels

Back for his fourth and final year in a Carolina uniform, Marcus Paige says the Tar Heels will put the summer months to good use – to polish up their games and grow even closer together. “College goes so fast. You only get four cracks at it. We’re going to try to come together even more as a team, execute better and try to make something special happen,” Paige says. (Chapelboro.com)

Player Review: Isaiah Hicks

Isaiah Hicks was expected to be much improved last season and for the most part that panned out. He scored 10 points in back-to-back games against UCLA and Florida early in the season but was hit or miss with his production. Hicks went for 12 points on 6-7 shooting in a win over NC State and posted a career high 21 points against Boston College after getting the start. (Tar Heel Blog)

Video: Marcus Paige tries his hand at golf

North Carolina point guard Marcus Paige went to social media to comment on his recent golf outing. He posted a video of a drive, its lack of distance, and that maybe golf isn't for me. Its okay though, he's a pretty good basketball player. (Carolina Blue)

Theo Pinson Undergoes Foot Surgery

Theo Pinson, a freshman on the UNC basketball team, underwent successful surgery on his left foot Monday at the Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte. Pinson suffered a fracture of his left fifth metatarsal in UNC’s game at Wake Forest on January 21st. UNC athletics trainer Doug Halverson said he expects Pinson to be ready to participate in basketball activities in time for the start of the 2015-16 season. (GoHeels.com)

UNC Basketball Moves to No. 1 in Ridiculously Early Preseason Top 25

1. North Carolina: Why the Tar Heels are ranked here: The top four scorers -- and every rotation player except J.P. Tokoto -- are returning from a team that finished 11th in KenPom's final ratings and made the Sweet 16. The late addition of Kenny Williams adds a shooter to the roster. So the Tar Heels are talented, experienced and deep, which is a nice combination. (CBS Sports)

Top Ten Greatest NBA Playoff Performances By Former Tar Heels

The NBA Playoffs have been fun to watch this year, in part because there is no shortage of UNC alumni playing postseason basketball. Whether it’s Danny Green blocking shots for the Spurs, Vince Carter turning back time or Harrison Barnes filling his role perfectly for the Warriors, here are some moments in NBA Playoff history that stand out as the greatest by former Tar Heels. (Tar Heel Depot)

Harrison Barnes benefits from bulk of practice with Walton

After most practices, Warriors small forward Harrison Barnes plays one-on-one against assistant coach Luke Walton, who has added at least 15 pounds since he played at 6-foot-8 and 235 pounds. So when Barnes gets assigned would-be mismatches, like Memphis’ 6-9, 260-pound Zach Randolph, he feels as if he’s right back on the practice court. (San Francisco Gate)
