Dino Gaudio: ‘Marcus Paige needs the ball in his hands more’

ESPN analyst and former Wake Forest basketball coach Dino Gaudio dropped by The David Glenn Show this week to talk about ACC Player of the Year candidates and which teams he sees most fit to make a run in the NCAA tournament. UNC is one of those teams, but if he were coaching the Tar Heels, there’s one adjustment he would make. (ACC Sports Journal)

Virginia's supporting cast must step up against Heels

Among the sideshows in Saturday’s showdown between Top 10 powers at sold-out John Paul Jones Arena will be that of ACC Player of the Year. For the second time in a dozen days, Virginia’s Malcolm Brogdon will be tested by a foe from Tobacco Road. After making mincemeat of N.C. State’s Cat Barber, the newest challenge comes from UNC’s Brice Johnson. (Charlottesville Daily Progress)

Carolina, Virginia a clash of styles

It’s not a battle of good vs. evil, but today’s matchup between No. 3 Virginia and No. 7 North Carolina does pit two teams against each other that are that diametrically opposed — at least when it comes to style of play. Virginia (21-6, 10-5 ACC) wants to slow things down, limit transition and settle into its staunch half-court, Pack-Line defense. (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

Hype, high stakes await Cavaliers on Saturday

In the moments following his team’s win over North Carolina in Chapel Hill last February, Virginia coach Tony Bennett came clean with his feelings regarding ESPN’s College GameDay.

Five questions to ponder before tipoff

How important will tempo be in determining the UNC-UVA winner? The pace at which today’s game in Charlottesville is played will likely determine which team walks away with the victory. The Tar Heels want it to be a fast-paced up-and-down game. The Cavaliers want to slow things down and exploit some of UNC’s defensive deficiencies in the halfcourt game. (Wilmington Star News)

Tar Heels take title thoughts to Virginia

North Carolina coach Roy Williams has mentioned several times recently that before the season among friends he selected Virginia as the preseason favorite in the ACC. Tonight, the Tar Heels have a chance to put a grip on the top spot with a showdown at Virginia. “We really want to win the ACC regular-season title,” UNC guard Marcus Paige said Friday. (Burlington Times News)

Three to know: No. 7 North Carolina at No. 3 Virginia

UNC has had a degree of success at Virginia’s home gym, winning four of the six games it’s played at John Paul Jones Arena. Given the reputation the venue has built among visiting teams, that’s no small feat. Virginia has won its last 18 games at home – including all 13 this season – and has a 33-1 record against ACC foes in the last four seasons. (Fayetteville Observer)

Preview & Prediction: #7 UNC at #3 Virginia

The ACC lead is on the line. A loss pulls the Tar Heels into a tie with the winner between Louisville and Miami, being played Saturday. A win would keep the Tar Heels one game ahead with games at home versus Syracuse and at Duke. The bigger prize is a #1 seed and placement in the Raleigh pod for the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament. Prediction: UNC 71, Virginia 69 (Tar Heel Blog)

North Carolina's highly touted sophomore class hitting its stride in Year 2

Justin Jackson, Joel Berry and Theo Pinson are starting to fulfill their potential, even if they're doing it a year later than the current landscape of college basketball deems acceptable. They were a big reason why the seventh-ranked, first-place Tar Heels overcame an early deficit and rolled to an 80-68 victory at N.C. State on Wednesday night. (Fayetteville Observer)
