UNC too much for Va. Tech

Maybe Tar Heels big man Kennedy Meeks does go out there and pad his stats by intentionally missing shots so he can do a little glass cleaning. Meeks had six offensive rebounds in the first half when North Carolina beat Virginia Tech 91-72 Thursday in the Dean E. Smith Center. He finished the game with seven offensive rebounds, seven defensive rebounds and 15 points. (Durham Herald-Sun)

UNC's inside-outside combination too much for Hokies

Virginia Tech scored 15 points on its first seven possessions Thursday at No. 9 North Carolina. The ideal start, yes? Not so much. As potent and balanced as the Hokies are at their best, the Tar Heels are more so, and playing the quick pace UNC prefers is risky. Sure enough, the Tar Heels ducked Tech's early flurry, used their size to dominate the interior and prevailed 91-72. (Daily Press)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - UNC vs. Virginia Tech

UNC's 91-72 win over Virginia Tech marks the first time in program history the Tar Heels have scored at least 85 points in seven straight ACC games. The main storyline from this game, though, will be the health of Theo Pinson, who left with an apparent ankle injury in the first half and did not return. "Theo rolled his ankle," according to Roy Williams in the postgame. (GoHeels.com)

Joel Berry, emotion, and leadership

North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams values emotion and competitiveness on the court. The key is channeling that fire it in the right direction. At Wednesday's press conference, Williams was asked about Carolina junior point guard Joel Berry's emotion, how it helps him and how important it is to his success. (Carolina Blue)

To run or not to run? That's the question for Hokies as they prep for No. 9 UNC

When Virginia Tech coach Buzz Williams scans his roster, he doesn't kid himself when he compares them to a group of bluebloods like the ones at No. 9 North Carolina. Williams certainly believes he has enough to win, but he doesn't have the embarrassment of riches UNC's roster boasts. Just about nobody does. (Daily Press)
