Reggie Bullock earns birthday trip to podium

It was a much deserved chance for Reggie Bullock to glean some of the spotlight. He scored a career-high 14 points for the Clippers, including going 2-for-3 from 3-point range and finishing off a nifty left-handed layup on a fast break. And he did it after being thrust into somewhat of emergency duty after Darren Collison was ruled out with a stomach virus shortly before tipoff. (NBA.com)

James Michael McAdoo Talks Crazy Fans, UNC Legacy and His Special Friend

UNC’s James Michael McAdoo is one of the top forwards in the country. The Norfolk, Va., native is in his junior season for the Tar Heels, but he was thought by most to have left for the NBA by now. Bleacher Report went one-on-one with McAdoo in Chapel Hill, N.C., and captured some of the bright personality behind the 6’9”, 230-pound star you see on the court. (Bleacher Report)

Why Marcus Paige Believes He's One of the Top Point Guards in the Country

UNC’s Marcus Paige has been nothing short of remarkable this season, emerging as one of the top guards in the country. The sophomore from Marion, Iowa, leads his team in scoring and free-throw percentage. Bleacher Report went one-on-one with Paige in Chapel Hill, N.C., and captured a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like and what it means to play for such a historic program. (Bleacher Report)

From 1-68: Ranking the NCAA field

This is not a ranking based on resumes -- that stuff is irrelevant now. It is simply a ranking of all 68 teams in the field, based on eye test, efficiency metrics, and how teams perform on the court. 27. North Carolina: Inconsistency is the biggest issue with the Tar Heels, but the development of Marcus Paige makes them solid. James Michael McAdoo is key. (CBS Sports)

UNC to San Antonio to meet Providence

North Carolina hasn’t had much success in the NCAA Tournament as a No. 6 seed or in San Antonio. The Tar Heels will have a chance to change both those trends this year. UNC was awarded the No. 6 seed in the East Region and will open tournament play Friday against No. 11 Providence at the AT&T Center (7:20 p.m., TNT). Next up would be No. 3 Iowa State or No. 14 N.C. Central. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Friars set to take on North Carolina

Providence has a star who came East to chase his basketball dreams because it was his only option. They have a guard who prays for his military mom in Kuwait while he’s launching deep 3-pointers and a tough-as-nails forward who learned not to take any junk from the big boys from an older brother who roots for him from a Michigan prison. The coach is a man without a home. (Providence Journal)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Selection Sunday

Carolina might have dodged some of the possible "marquee" matchups--no Michigan State, for example, which seemed like a possibility, or perhaps a game against Larry Brown and SMU--but the four-team bracket in San Antonio is no joke. In theory, the Tar Heels would have to defeat two conference tournament champions just to reach the Sweet 16. (GoHeels.com)

Video: UNC Basketball Team Reacts to NCAA Selection

Watch the Tar Heels' reaction when North Carolina was announced as a 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament and hear what Roy Williams, Marcus Paige and James Michael McAdoo have to say entering the tournament. View Video...

Lucas: Tournament Time

It is 5:48 p.m. on Sunday night and the 2014 Tar Heels are gathered at Roy Williams' home to watch the NCAA Tournament selection show. This has become an annual tradition, and the food is delicious. There are brownies (presumably stolen from some unsuspecting road opponents), ice cream, and--the head coach isn't superstitious, he's just careful--green St. Patrick's Day cupcakes. (GoHeels.com)

NCAA Tournament TV schedule, tip times, announcing teams

North Carolina's NCAA Tournament game against Providence will tip off at 7:20 PM on Friday, March 21st and be televised on TNT. Marv Albert, Steve Kerr, and Craig Sager will be the announcing crew from San Antonio. Here are the other scheduled tip-times for Thursday and Friday games. (CBS Sports)

UNC Off To San Antonio For NCAAs

North Carolina has earned its 45th NCAA Tournament bid, grabbing the No. 6 seed in the East Regional. Carolina will play No. 11 seed Providence on Friday in San Antonio. The winner of that contest will play the winner of the game between No. 3 seed Iowa State and No. 14 seed NC Central on Sunday. The Tar Heels return to the NCAA field this season for the 10th time in 11 years under Roy Williams. (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels Seeded 6th in East Bracket

North Carolina has been named the No. 6 seed in the East bracket of the 2014 NCAA Basketball Tournament. The Tar Heels will play No. 11 seed Providence (23-11) in San Antonio, Texas on Friday. If UNC wins, they will play either No. 3 seed Iowa State or No. 14 seed N.C. Central on Sunday. (Printable Bracket - PDF)

Heels Get No. 6 seed

North Carolina received a No. 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Tar Heels will open play against Providence on Friday in San Antonio. The Friars won the Big East Tournament championship on Saturday. (Inside Carolina)

Bracket Briefing: Who's hot, who's not on Selection Sunday

Who's Not: While UNC put together a 12-game winning streak and looked to be a sleeper Elite Eight team in late February, Roy Williams' team is bottoming out at the wrong time — losing to Duke to end the regular season and falling against a hot Pittsburgh team in the ACC quarterfinals. Before that, the Heels barely escaped Notre Dame and Virginia Tech. (USA Today)

Lucas: An Epic's 25th Anniversary

It seems incredibly appropriate that when J.R. Reid is reached on his cell phone this week, he is...in the barbershop. There was a point in ACC history when Reid's trips to the barber were national news. Reid, once the owner of the most famous hightop fade in Carolina basketball history, almost singlehandedly set a hair trend and a national craze during the mid to late 1980s. (GoHeels.com)
