Tar Heels Help Schools Celebrate Special Reading Days

On March 28, Schuyler Coleman (football) and Joel James (men's basketball) helped students at New Hope Elementary School celebrate Dr. Seuss Day as part of the Read Across America program. Each was asked to select a favorite Dr. Seuss book to share - Coleman went with "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" while James picked "Hop on Pop." (GoHeels.com)

James Michael McAdoo Enters NBA Draft

UNC junior forward James Michael McAdoo will forego his senior year of college basketball eligibility and enter the 2014 NBA Draft. The Norfolk, Va., native scored 1,232 points and pulled down 640 rebounds in 108 games as a Tar Heel. He averaged 11.4 points and 5.9 rebounds, including 14.3 points and 7.0 rebounds in two seasons as a starter. He earned second-team All-ACC honors as a sophomore and junior. (GoHeels.com)

Lucas: Internationally Known

Several Tar Heels from the Roy Williams era have made very comfortable livings playing basketball overseas. Few, however, seem as natural a fit as Marcus Ginyard, who always had a natural curiosity about other people when he was in Chapel Hill, and who always seemed more interested in basketball as a gateway to an interesting life rather than a gateway to showing up regularly on ESPN.

SECU Family House BBQ & Golf Tournament

The annual Tar Heels for SECU Family House BBQ & Golf Tournament returns April 24-25, 2014, with activities for all ages and great music, food and prizes. The two-day event is co-hosted by Athletic Director Bubba Cunningham and North Carolina men's Basketball coach Roy Williams, and funds raised benefit families with a seriously ill adult patient receiving treatment at UNC Hospitals.

Roy Williams Must Hope 2014 Class Sparks Turnaround

Just two years removed from an Elite Eight appearance, it's become strikingly familiar. The Tar Heels are quietly a half-decade removed from Williams' second championship in his first six seasons and have slipped into a strange mediocrity. In his first nine seasons, Williams had two double-digit loss seasons. He has as many in his last two. (Bleacher Report)

Tar Heels lead the way — in viewers, anyway

College basketball, especially when the North Carolina Tar Heels are playing, commands significant audiences. To date in the NCAA tournament, the third-round matchup of North Carolina against Iowa State had the largest audience in Charlotte, with 334,690 people watching the March 23 game on WBTV.

Tar Heels In The NBA Update

The Denver Nuggets have had a disappointing season this year, but one bright spot has been Ty Lawson. The shifty point guard is the heart and soul of the team and is by far the best and most important player. But over the last few games, Lawson hasn't performed at his usual rate, which prompted Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw to say that Lawson needs to be more aggressive. (GoHeels.com)

A March without Madness...a season without banners

On Friday, November 16, 2001, there were reasons to celebrate on the UNC campus. The basketball program signed three of the top high school players in the country. (Raymond Felton, Rashad McCants, and Sean May would lead the Tar Heels to a national championship in 2005.) (A View to Hugh)

End of Season Evaluations: Centers

For the most part, Brice Johnson can claim the mantle of UNC's second best offensive player. He posted the next best offensive rating behind Marcus Paige and was top 100 nationally in offensive rebounding rate. The problem with Johnson is that he only played 19 minutes per contest which was a direct result of his deficiencies on the defensive end. (Tar Heel Blog)

Tyler, the Enrager: Raptors Forward Plays the Heel

Tyler Hansbrough, who, despite relatively paltry scoring numbers, remains a foul magnet. You may find that annoying — you may find him annoying — but your resistance is futile. Hansbrough’s scoring and rebounding numbers may seem like those of an NBA role player, but the NCAA’s all-time leader in made free throws is still getting hacked like a superstar. (Grantland.com)

Looking Ahead To The 2014-15 Tar Heels

What Roy Williams should love is that this team will be very athletic. With Marcus Paige, Nate Britt and Joel Berry rotating in the backcourt, J.P. Tokoto, Theo Pinson and Jackson rotating on the wing, and combos of James Michael McAdoo, Brice Johnson, Kennedy Meeks, Isaiah Hicks and Desmond Hubert in the frontcourt, this team should be able to run teams out of the gym. (The Sportz Assassin)

UNC Basketball Expectations High For Next Season

The 2013-2014 season saw the emergence of Marcus Paige, J.P. Tokoto, James Michael McAdoo, Brice Johnson, and Kennedy Meeks. One should expect some improvement from all five players. Johnson should pack on an additional 15-20 pounds. Meeks will lose some more weight and have better overall conditioning. McAdoo and Tokoto will look to improve their outside shooting and ball handling. (Carolina Blue)

Vince Carter wants to re-sign with Mavericks, thinks he’s earned it (he has)

Vince Carter has been a real value for Dallas this season — 12.1 points a game shooting 39.3 percent from three, playing more than 24 minutes a game and all for $3.2 million. At age 37 he looks like a guy who has a couple more years of solid basketball in him. (NBC Sports)
