In Yet Another Act, Larry Brown Writes a Winning Script

At 73, Brown has not slowed a bit. He lives with his son, L. J., a freshman at S.M.U., in a high rise across from the basketball complex and takes daily walks with staff members. He is so content at S.M.U. that he said he is hoping his daughter Madison, a high school junior at Brewster Academy in New Hampshire, decides to head there, too. (New York Times)

The Nuggets’ Ty Lawson ignited the hometown crowd with a dazzling crossover that got the best of the Timberwolves’ Corey Brewer on Monday night.

Marcus Paige Tops All-ACC Academic Team

UNC's Marcus Paige, a second-team CoSIDA Academic All-American, headlines the 2014 All-ACC Academic Men's Basketball team. Paige earns the honor for the second year in a row. To be eligible for consideration, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career.

Today In UNC-Duke History: March 4, 2006

Carolina's win at top-ranked Duke on the last day of the 2005-06 regular season would have been a memorable victory under any circumstances. But to truly understand what elevated it to one of the very best regular season wins of the Roy Williams era--and in contention for the top spot in that category--you have to understand the atmosphere of Tobacco Road basketball in 2006.

Eight teams you shouldn't trust...yet

North Carolina: The Tar Heels made some great plays to finish Notre Dame in a 63-61 win on Monday and extend their winning streak to 12 games. But they entered the second half with a 14-point lead against a Fighting Irish team with a 6-12 record in ACC play. That stretch illustrated their entire season. Always up for the top dogs, always vulnerable against the rest. (ESPN.com)

Tar Heels look to regain intensity

North Carolina has won its last three games by a total of seven points. The silver lining is it acknowledges that the Tar Heels have gotten better at winning close games, and their confidence in late-game situations can grow from it. Freshman guard Nate Britt said they don’t want to become overly dependent on trying to win late. (ESPN.com)

Tar Heels don't mind winning ugly

North Carolina’s 63-61 win over Notre Dame is not the way head coach Roy Williams prefers his victories. The Tar Heels scored just nine points in the first 10 minutes of the second half and made just nine field goals. Fortunately for Williams, his team isn’t just about scoring. The Heels are just as likely to win a game like Monday night's by getting stops as they are by getting buckets. (ESPN.com)

Video: Tar Heel Take - Notre Dame

Join Rachel Nash for Chapelboro’s very last Tar Heel Take of the season as she goes behind the scenes of UNC’s narrow win over Notre Dame to continue their twelve game winning streak. Be sure to tune into the end of the video for a surprise guest host. (Chapelboro.com)

Sophomore Stars

The 2012 recruiting class came in quietly. All four players were four-star recruits and there was little excitement beyond the over-hyped legend that J.P. Tokoto could be the best UNC dunker since Vince Carter and that Marcus Paige was a skilled and competent point guard. (Carolina Blue)

Steadying The Ship

While losses magnify various mundane aspects of a team’s performance, victories operate in a parallel fashion, brushing certain legitimate issues into the background. After all, a win is a win, right? Not exactly. (Inside Carolina)

Luck with Tar Heels, not the Fighting Irish

North Carolina clung to a slim one-point lead with seven seconds left when sophomore guard Marcus Paige uncharacteristically missed a free-throw attempt. Sophomore Brice Johnson just barely got a finger on the rebound, and tipped the ball out to Paige, who made one more free throw before clinching a senior night 63-61 win against Notre Dame with a game-ending block.
