Ross' Rapid Reactions: UNC vs. Northwestern

Theo Pinson is taking over where J.P. Tokoto left off in terms of assist production. He had five assists in the first half and always looked for the extra pass for the better shot. His no-look assist in the second half through two defenders to Kennedy Meeks is one of the better assists you'll see all season. Pinson finished with eight assists, but had four turnovers.

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Northwestern

That was one of the best versions of Justin Jackson that the Tar Heels have seen in his young career. In addition to his 21 points, Jackson was very involved in every aspect of the game. His 13 rebounds gave him his first career double-double, an especially impressive stat considering he had eight rebounds the entire season going into Monday night. (GoHeels.com)

UNC drops in polls, Paige not playing tonight

The time at the top didn't last long. North Carolina, who was ranked No. 1 in both the coaches and AP Polls, dropped in both this week. The Tar Heels lost 71-67 to Northern Iowa on Saturday to move to 3-1 on the season. Carolina takes on Northwestern on Monday night at 9:15 PM. The game is in Kansas City. (Carolina Blue)

Preview & Prediction: #9 UNC vs Northwestern

Northern Iowa and Northwestern both average 67.5 possessions per game putting them in the 330s nationally for tempo. A slower game tends to mean more half court offense and without Marcus Paige that has proven to be a bit dicey. Better offensive execution in half court sets will be crucial if the Tar Heels cannot get as many transition looks. Prediction: UNC 77 Northwestern 69 (Tar Heel Blog)

Weekly Basketball Assignments: Week 3

Marcus Paige is still missing and the Tar Heels have missed his playmaking in their first four games. However, these growing pains could develop players who will stand out down the stretch as Carolina gets into the postseason. This week would be a good place for Joel Berry, Theo Pinson and Nate Britt to show that they learned from the loss to Northern Iowa. (Tar Heel Blog)

Three to know: No. 9 North Carolina vs. Northwestern

Chris Collins is in his third season as Northwestern’s head coach. The Chicago-area native should be familiar to ACC hoops fans. He was a shooting guard for Duke in the mid-1990s and served on Mike Krzyzewski’s staff for more than a decade. Seven-foot senior center Alex Olah has been a major cog in the Wildcats’ attack, averaging 13 points and eight rebounds. (Fayetteville Observer)

Lucas: Tar Heels Ready To Move Ahead

So if a tree falls in Northern Iowa in November and no one hears it, does it really make a sound? Carolina, of course, played without Marcus Paige. But they still should’ve had enough weapons to dispatch a Panther club that already lost at home to Colorado State. Here are three factors that went into the defeat for those who might not have had the benefit of seeing the entire game: (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels Look To Rebound vs. Northwestern

One year with Marcus Ginyard

Last year at this time, I signed a contract to play in D-League with the Westchester Knicks club affiliated with the New Yorks Knicks. I was extremely excited to embark on this journey which brought me closer to my dream of playing in the NBA. I was hoping to stand out, attract the attention of general managers in the league, and generate enough interest for someone willing to take the risk to offer me a 10-day contract. (Chapelboro.com)
