Complete coverage of North Carolina Basketball.

UNC Player Profile: Justin Jackson

With Marcus Paige out, Justin Jackson will have the opportunity to assert himself as the team's leading weapon on offense. For North Carolina to be most successful this season, Jackson needs to be an aggressive scorer with the mid-range game and driving to the basket, while taking advantage of open opportunities beyond the arc when they are presented.

UNC Player Preview: Brice Johnson

ESPN ranked Brice Johnson 38th on their preseason list of 100 best players in college basketball. He was the third Tar Heel on the list behind Marcus Paige and Justin Jackson. Johnson will be expected to provide consistent scoring and should emerge as UNC’s best frontcourt scorer. His ability to hit mid-range jumpers combined with his quick post moves should give defenses fits. (Carolina Blue)

Roy Williams Radio Show Debuts Monday

Roy Williams Live, the Tar Heel basketball coach's weekly radio program with host Jones Angell, will make its 2015-16 debut at 7 p.m. on Monday night November 9 live from Top of the Hill restaurant in downtown Chapel Hill. The show will be heard on Monday evenings in 2015-16, except when the Tar Heels have a game or travel conflict. The show can be heard weekly on the Tar Heel Sports Network. (GoHeels.com)

Ed Davis finds a home with the Portland Trail Blazers

Ed Davis has been somewhat of an enigma in his now five years of NBA service. It seems as if the 2010 13th overall pick has seen just about everything from an early stint in the D-League to inexplicably bouncing between a few different teams. Yet, Davis is one of those rare players that fans and observers claimed that he needed the right fit that really just needed to find the right situation. (Hardwood Paroxysm)

UNC Player Profile: Isaiah Hicks

Despite changing his uniform number from 22 to 4, the upcoming season looks to be more of the same for Isaiah Hicks, a McDonald's All-American and the 2013 North Carolina player of the year. Hicks will be the first sub at power forward, spelling All-ACC returner Brice Johnson, but can capably start if Johnson or Meeks get injured, or if Johnson sputters. (Tar Heel Blog)

Lucas: The Unknown

After watching Roy Williams’ team demolish Guilford, 99-49, you know that the Tar Heels have hooded warmup vests this year, that the new introduction video with Stuart Scott is very cool, that you don’t ever want to see Marcus Paige and Justin Jackson in suits again until the basketball banquet…and that as for basketball, you don’t know much more than that.

UNC vs Guilford: Ross' Rapid Reactions

North Carolina defeated Guilford 99 to 49 on Friday night in the Dean Dome. UNC outmatched the Quakers in size, speed, and skill. Here are my thoughts on the Tar Heels from Friday. Theo Pinson will make the extra pass. He opted out of open mid range jumper to pass to an open Nate Britt who nailed three. Kennedy Meeks is visibly in better shape and slimmer than last season.

Exhibition Recap: UNC 99, Guilford 49

Despite missing Marcus Paige with a broken bone in his hand and Justin Jackson due to illness, the Tar Heels had little trouble rolling by Guilford 99-49 in the team's only public exhibition game of the season. The Tar Heels' starting lineup consisted of Nate Britt, Joel Berry, Theo Pinson, Brice Johnson and Kennedy Meeks. From there Roy Williams made gratuitous use of the bench. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC shot 62 percent from the floor (42-68) and had 33 assists on 42 field goals. Four Tar Heels handed out five or more assists. (GoHeels.com)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Guilford

Let's get this out of the way first: it's very difficult to tell anything from a game like Friday night's 99-49 win over Guilford. Carolina is, as Roy Williams is certain to say, "more gifted and talented" than Guilford. The Tar Heels held a whopping 60-18 edge on points in the paint and physically dominated the Quakers.
