Aaron Rohlman living out a dream as former JV player now on UNC varsity

Gastonia's Aaron Rohlman doesn't mince words when he talks about what it's been like to play on the UNC basketball team this season. "It's a dream come true," said Rohlman, who was promoted from the Tar Heels' junior varsity once practice began this season. "A lot of people don't get to experience something like this. I've been blessed to be able to experience it." (Gaston Gazette)

Three to know: No. 9 North Carolina at Boston College

North Carolina should be back to full strength after freshman center Tony Bradley returned to practice this week. Bradley, who averages 8.1 points and 5.7 rebounds, suffered a concussion in last week’s win at Wake Forest. He missed the Tar Heels’ wins against Florida State and Syracuse. He is expected to be back in the lineup against Boston College Saturday. (Fayetteville Observer)

Four Factor Friday: 4 Questions

UNC is 17-3 and 5-1 in the ACC after 20 games. The Tar Heels have won five in a row after dropping its ACC opener on the road at Georgia Tech. Carolina plays at Boston College at noon Saturday. In this edition of Four Factor Friday, we’ll try to answer four questions using the four factors, box score data, and a couple different online resources: (The Secondary Break)

Raptors 905 coach Jerry Stackhouse knows importance of D-League Showcase

Former NBA star Jerry Stackhouse knows what it takes to succeed in the big leagues. As the head coach of the NBA Development League's Raptors 905, he's now guiding the next generation in the season's most crucial stretch. (CBC News)

UNC prepares for Boston College's backcourt duo

In search of its sixth straight victory, No. 9 North Carolina travels to Boston College on Saturday at 12 p.m. After beating Florida State and Syracuse, the Tar Heels hope to avoid a letdown against the Eagles after nearly falling in Chestnut Hill a season ago. Guards Jerome Robinson and Ky Bowman are capable of taking their defenders off the bounce. (Daily Tar Heel)

D-League event is a Showcase for Jerry Stackhouse, too

The NBA Development League doesn’t only serve as a proving ground for aspiring players. It is also a place where coaches hone their craft as they try to work toward reaching the next level. And so it goes for Jerry Stackhouse, the two-time NBA all-star, who is in his first year helming Raptors 905. Stackhouse is off to a 17-7 record as a head coach. (Toronto Sun)

Audio: Roy Williams Interview with Evan Daniels

UNC basketball coach Roy Williams stops by for an exclusive interview with Evan Daniels. Williams discusses the start to his college coaching career and the struggles he went through just to make ends meet, his decision to leave Kansas and take the head coaching job at UNC, and tells some absolutely amazing stories about recruiting Michael Jordan. (SoundCloud)

Ty Lawson 2009 vs. Joel Berry 2017

Although Joel Berry’s been great this year, his season pales in comparison to Ty Lawson’s sublime 2009 campaign—the G.O.A.T. point-guard statline in UNC history (with apologies to a couple of Phil Ford seasons, Kenny Smith in ’87, Raymond Felton in ’05, etc.). Berry stacks up favorably to Lawson in some key categories, while falling well short in others. (The Secondary Break)

Pistons' Reggie Bullock cuts his way to a breakout game against Atlanta

The biggest benefactor of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope sitting out his third straight game was Reggie Bullock, who sliced his way through the defense for a season-high 15 points. "I'm just trying to take full advantage of the opportunity," said Bullock, who added a season-high six rebounds and four assists. "Bring high-energy defense, shooting to the team." (MLive.com)

Harlem Globetrotter Orlando 'El Gato' Melendez inspires students

"Find what you love and do it well," said Orlando Melendez, 37, who earned his nickname, "El Gato", as a kid when cats followed him to his native Puerto Rican court. "Think, 'What am I doing now that will get me there?'" St. Anthony's was the first of several schools Melendez will visit before the Globetrotters perform at Ford Arena as part of an educational and anti-bullying initiative. (Beaumont Enterprise)

The Scout's Take: UNC's Berry has giant work ethic

Listen to anyone who talks about basketball players for a living, and it won’t be long before the inevitable buzzwords find their way into the conversation: “Wingspan.” “Length.” “Great size for his position.” Those are not the first phrases that leap to mind to describe North Carolina’s latest great point guard, Joel Berry II. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Audio: Roy Williams interview on the David Glenn Show

North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams joined the David Glenn show on Wednesday to discuss career win No. 800, how he ended up on a golf course with members of the '92 Dream Team, this year's Tar Heels team, and some of the people who have had a major influence on his life. (Hipcast)

Shades of Dirk in Harrison Barnes? It could go a long way for him

The weird thing about Harrison Barnes is that he’s apparently an extreme gym rat. That’s not weird in and of itself, of course, but when a guy has been as Harrison Barnes has been in his life, and seems, given those expectations, to be pointed towards a disappointing career, it’s reasonable to think that there’s something wrong with his preparation and drive. (WFAA)

Star production, interior dominance have the Heels rolling

After five straight ACC wins, including two on the road, North Carolina is rolling. They are clicking on offense and getting more production from their big men to compliment what UNC's two junior stars have been doing throughout the season. Led by the offensive firepower of point guard Joel Berry and small forward Justin Jackson, Carolina has scored 89, 107, 93, 96, and 85 in their five ACC wins. (Carolina Blue)
