Video: UNC Basketball Tuesday Practice Clips

A few video clips from Tuesday's UNC basketball practice, courtesy of Sean May via his Instagram account: "Another Great Day At The Office...Best part...We Get To Do It Again Tomorrow" Read More...

NBC Sports ACC Basketball Preview

North Carolina has talent, but they also have question marks: The knock of North Carolina last season was that, while they had a roster full of highly-rated recruits, they didn’t necessarily have much future NBA talent in their ranks. The Tar Heels are a top ten team on paper. But just how sure are you that what we’ll see on the court will be a top ten team? (NBC Sports)

Wayne Ellington proudly and painfully brings anti-violence message

Wayne Ellington is standing in a room filled with hundreds of high school students, all of them silent and hanging on every word that the new Miami Heat guard is saying. He's not there to tell basketball stories. He's there to talk about his father — a victim of gun violence not even two years ago. "Still grieving and it's still fresh," Ellington said.

Online Auction Items for Roy Williams' "Fast Break Against Cancer"

Over the past 11 years, UNC basketball coach Roy Williams has raised more than $2.1 million to help cure cancer. Don't miss this exciting opportunity to help him lead the charge for cancer research, treatment and care at UNC Lineberger by bidding on one-of-a-kind auction items, including special behind-the-scenes basketball and football experiences.

Lucas: Villanova

Six months later, it still stings, and likely will for as long as you’re a UNC basketball fan. But the reality is practice began on Monday in Chapel Hill—NCAA permitted practice beginning on Friday, but Roy Williams was busy this weekend with his daughter’s wedding, so the Tar Heels hit the floor on Monday—and we’re going to hear a lot about Villanova in the months to come.

The top 50 non-conference college basketball games for the 2016-17 season

20. UNC at Indiana, Nov. 30 (Big Ten/ACC Challenge): Indiana -- which might not have Collin Hartman for this one -- can run and score with UNC. Critical guys returning for the Tar Heels: Theo Pinson, Kennedy Meeks, Isaiah Hicks and Justin Jackson, to name a few. Would not shock me if UNC is a little wobbly in the first few weeks of the season. (CBS Sports)

UNC rookies learning fast-break concepts

There's being in shape, and there's actually having the cardiovascular fortitude to get up and down a basketball court the way Roy Williams wants his Tar Heels running. As good as UNC point guard Joel Berry II has been, and as nice of a player as rookie set-up man Seventh Woods could be, neither one will get an A+ when Williams hands out grades for running the fast break. (NCAA.com)

Hornets’ Marvin Williams says he doesn’t crave being ‘the guy’

Marvin Williams doesn’t have All-Star appearances, like Chris Paul, the fourth pick in that year’s draft, or a championship ring like top pick Andrew Bogut. But things turned out just right for Williams after he was chosen second overall by the Atlanta Hawks. And they ultimately turned out where he always wanted to be, where Bickerstaff envisioned him. (Charlotte Observer)

UNC Basketball Starts Practice Monday

The 2016-17 UNC men's basketball team will sport a different look after the graduations of Brice Johnson and Marcus Paige. That duo will soon have their jerseys honored in the rafters of the Smith Center, but three starters and six of the team's top eight scorers return, which has Roy Williams excited for his 14th season as the Tar Heel head coach. (GoHeels.com)

Kings’ Ty Lawson eager to put poor season, legal trouble behind him

Ty Lawson understands the game. As Kings coach Dave Joerger succinctly put it, “He is staring his career right in the eyeball.” Four arrests for driving under the influence threatened the career of one the NBA’s quickest point guards. At his best, Lawson is an NBA rarity, a blur of a player who would rather make plays for teammates than pad his scoring stats. (Sacramento Bee)

Roy Williams to Speak at NCCU Men’s Basketball Tipoff Banquet

North Carolina Central University men's basketball head coach LeVelle Moton has announced that University of North Carolina men's basketball head coach Roy Williams will serve as the special guest speaker at the inaugural NCCU Men's Basketball Tip-Off Banquet & Auction on Oct. 19 at 7 p.m. in McDougald-McLendon Arena. (NCCU Eagles)

Carolina Insider Podcast: Marcus Paige

Former Tar Heel point guard Marcus Paige was back in town last weekend along with Brice Johnson and the rest of their 2016 teammates to receive their NCAA Final Four rings. Prior being honored at Kenan Stadium with the rest of the '16 squad, Paige sat with Jones Angell and Adam Lucas for a lengthy and insightful discussion. (GoHeels.com)

Late Night With Roy Details

Late Night With Roy, the 14th annual ceremonial season tipoff for Carolina Basketball, will be the first opportunity to see the defending ACC champions start their 2016-17 season in style. The Tar Heels will welcome fans into the Smith Center on Friday October 14 as the team looks ahead to another promising campaign after last year's Final Four run. Doors open at 6 p.m. (GoHeels.com)

Clippers Notes: Rookie Brice Johnson gets chance to contribute

The plays, the running, the competition – Clippers first-round pick Brice Johnson expected that. How strong his new teammates are? That’s a different story. Through two practices, Johnson is still adjusting to how physical the play is in the NBA. Johnson and fellow rookie Diamond Stone will get a chance to assimilate quickly with the Clippers sharing reps in training camp. (Orange County Register)

Dallas Mavericks bet big on Harrison Barnes' upside

The math on Harrison Barnes seems hard to figure for some. He averaged a career-high 11.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists for the 73-win Golden State Warriors. The Dallas Mavericks signed him for $94 million over the next four years, clearly projecting development for a 24-year-old with incredible intangibles. (ESPN.com)
