When the College Door Shuts, a Minor League Beckons

In tiny, sparsely filled arenas across the country, P.J. Hairston, a shooting guard, is learning every aspect of the NBA on a smaller scale. The D-League scene is far different from the packed Smith Center in Chapel Hill, where Hairston starred for North Carolina. His experiences this season separate him from every college basketball player trying to make it to the NBA. (New York Times)

UNC alum, Michigan State trainer Quinton Sawyer keeps Spartans on the court

For much of the season, the bodies of Michigan State basketball players appeared brittle. One by one, players went down but not out. They suffered a plethora of injuries, none season-ending. A sprained ankle here, plantar fasciitis there. A lingering wrist injury. A broken bone in a hand. One by one, they came to Quinton Sawyer, the Spartans' third-year trainer and the one tasked with putting Humpty Dumpty back together again. (USA Today)

David Glenn Talks UNC Scandal

Nearly four years have passed since North Carolina's football program found itself on the NCAA's radar, and although the initial investigation concluded over two years ago and resulted in sanctions, national media have picked up on some of the ugly details that have gradually been revealed to the public.

Art’s Angle: Ten Reasons To Be Sad

If you still are saddened that Carolina won’t be taking on UConn in the Sweet Sixteen Friday night at Madison Square Garden, here are 10 reasons to make it even worse. It may have been a perfect storm of Iowa State making plays and the Tar Heels messing up in the last four minutes, but any one of these 10 reasons would have in all likelihood produced a different outcome.

Marvin Williams a vital presence for young Jazz

When the lights go down before the start of a game, Marvin Williams is in his usual spot. As each starter’s name is announced, the forward waits for him at the end of a line of high-fives. They run at each other, jump and bump sides. It matters little to Williams that his name hasn’t been among them of late. "It’s part of being a professional. You’ve got to be ready for adjustments," he says. (Salt Lake Tribune)

James Worthy delivers strong message about education, humility and communication

James Worthy had plenty of material if he chose to talk about his basketball experiences. He was a high school All-American, won a national championship at UNC while playing with Michael Jordan in 1982 and was a three-time NBA champion playing with the Los Angeles Lakers. Instead, Worthy talked about education, humility and the value of communication. (Pocono Record)

End of Season Evaluations: Forwards

Junior forward James Michael McAdoo put together a generally solid season with the exception of two noticeable flaws. McAdoo still has trouble finishing around the rim and his free throw shooting actually declined from last season. Besides that, McAdoo showed slight signs of improvement in his overall shooting and offensive rating compared to last season. (Tar Heel Blog)

End of Season Evaluations: Guards

Now that the basketball season has ended, let's take a final look at how the individual players fared starting with the guards. There really isn't much to say about Marcus Paige's season other than, "Wow." The sophomore guard had a break-out season stepping up to fill the void left by the attrition at the wing positions and then some. (Tar Heel Blog)

Danny Green more than just a three-point threat

His first few seasons with the Spurs, Danny Green simply relied on his outside shooting and when he was forced to put the ball on the floor, he just didn’t seem comfortable. This season, Green has stepped back into the role he played in Chapel Hill. He has opened up his game, pushing the ball down the floor, attacking the basket and being aggressive. (Project Spurs)
