Wes Miller Receives Contract Extension With UNCG

UNCG Director of Athletics Kim Record announced Monday that men’s basketball head coach Wes Miller has received a two-year contract extension. Miller’s extension adds two years to his initial contract that had two years remaining and will carry him through June 30, 2019, with the same parameters of his initial contract. (UNCG Spartans)

Art’s Angle: Game Of Runs

Honestly, the Tar Heels didn’t lose their fourth ACC title game in five years as much as the senior-laden Irish took it from them with cold-blooded killer instinct that could not be stopped or matched. UNC had 18 more shots and made 53 percent of them, plus five more offensive rebounds, but sent the driving, slashing Irish to the line 32 times compared to only seven attempts for the Heels.

Harvard faces stiff test vs. North Carolina in NCAA Tournament

Harvard will collide with a program that’s been synonymous with March Madness. Crimson coach Tommy Amaker, his players and a spirited support group gathered last night in the Murr Center to watch CBS filling in this year’s NCAA tournament bracket. The rising anticipation grew tense as predicable matchups came and went before the West Regional was announced. (Boston Herald)

Ranking and Efficiency Snapshot of the West Region

UNC is the #13 overall seed which is also the strongest #4 seed. In that respect UNC is properly placed with Wisconsin which is the #4 overall and weakest #1. Regarding UNC's first opponent, Harvard, the Crimson are #52 which is the seed the Tar Heels should face according to the seed list. The #5 seed Arkansas is #18 overall or two spots above the seed UNC should face. (Tar Heel Blog)

Tar Heels Head To Jacksonville, Face Harvard In Round of 64

The wait is over. The brackets are out and Jacksonville, Florida is the destination for the UNC men’s basketball team’s first weekend of the NCAA Tournament. UNC checks in as the No. 4 seed in the 2015 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament and will face No. 13 seed Harvard, winner of the Ivy League, Thursday at 7:20p.m. in the Sunshine State. (Chapelboro.com)

Harvard eager to dance again

Of course, as a former Duke player and assistant coach, Amaker has played the Tar Heels many, many times before. But he’s faced them only once as a head coach, back at Seton Hall in his first stop as a head coach. Now he’ll have to get Harvard ready to play a North Carolina team that spent most of the season in the AP Top 25, finished 24-11 overall and made a run all the way to the ACC tournament final before losing to Notre Dame.

Lucas: Ice Cream And Dreams

“Here we go, guys.” And with those words from Roy Williams, the NCAA Tournament selection show began on CBS on the television in Williams’ living room, and the focus at the team gathering at his home turned from the ice cream (important tip: put it on a brownie) to the brackets. Players gathered in the front of the room, with Kennedy Meeks sharing a sofa with Williams. (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels A No. 4 Seed, Will Face Harvard In Jacksonville

North Carolina is the No. 4 seed in the 2015 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament and will face No. 13 seed Harvard on Thursday in Jacksonville, Fla.

UNC Seeded #4 in West Regional; Will Start in Jacksonville

Wisconsin, which is the #4 overall seed heads up the West followed by #2 Arizona and #3 Baylor. Should UNC win its first round game it would face the winner of #5 Arkansas-#12 Wofford. Here is the West Region. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC Seed and Bracket Projections

So what will the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee do with UNC, and where are the Heels likely to being playing their 1st and 2nd round games? Before getting into what the bracketologists think, let's first look at UNC's resume, as it will appear (roughly) on the sheets given to the committee members. (Tar Heel Blog)

NCAA Tournament Springboard

In the aftermath of Saturday’s ACC Tournament championship game collapse, the 19th-ranked Tar Heels left the Greensboro Coliseum a better team than when they had arrived five days earlier. This group of Tar Heels was not going to let the immediacy of its title game loss overshadow the strides it had made during the run to the title game. (Inside Carolina)

Blown Back But Undeterred

It happened just like that. North Carolina went from predator to prey in a matter of moments — just a handful of minutes on the clock in which the Tar Heels had their momentum zapped, their ACC championship promise obliterated. UNC played four games on four consecutive days, but it refused to rest on fatigue as an excuse for crumbling so quickly. It was a simple matter of execution, the Tar Heels said. (Carolina Blue)

Brandan Wright continues career comeback with Phoenix Suns

Almost eight years later, Brandan Wright feels like he is just getting started. Wright was unable to write a new beginning to his NBA career, one limited to 114 appearances in his first four seasons. But he has become the author of a career story headed for a happier ending. Part of that plot included a move to Phoenix two months ago, but the turning point came after the 2011 lockout.
