Talking Points: Bad recipe creates early exit for Heels

North Carolina missed a ton of shots and Pittsburgh came up with defensive rebounds. A simple recipe that created a one-and-done trip to Greensboro for the Tar Heels. It was a heck of a comeback by North Carolina, aided by Pitt's horrendous 21-for-41 performance from the free throw line, but they dug themselves to too deep of a hole to get out. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Tar Heels fall in ACC Quarterfinals

Fifth-seeded Pittsburgh, who just 24 hours earlier had dominated Wake Forest 84-55 in Thursday's Round of 12, picked up right where they left off Friday afternoon, building a commanding double-digit early lead and held on for dear life down the stretch on its way to an 80-75 win over the Tar Heels, which eliminates North Carolina from this year's event.

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Pittsburgh

The Panthers held a 20-12 advantage on the glass in the first half. Pitt was especially impressive keeping the Tar Heels off the offensive glass, as Carolina was outscored 21-8 on second chance points. Unfortunately, that continued a streak during which the Tar Heels have been outscored 44-19 on second chance points over the last five halves. (GoHeels.com)

ACC Tourney to Brooklyn

The ACC men’s basketball tournament is headed to Brooklyn. Greensboro Coliseum director Matt Brown confirmed to the News & Record that the tournament will move in 2017 to the Barclay’s Center, where it will run for two years. League commissioner John Swofford said in a statement today that reports of the ACC tournament moving in 2017 are premature. (Greensboro News & Record)

ACC Tournament Closer Look: Pittsburgh

North Carolina ended up as the number four seed, giving them a two day bye in the ACC Tournament. The Tar Heels had to wait till Thursday afternoon to see who they would be playing. The Pittsburgh Panthers took care of business early in the first half against Wake Forest, taking control and winning easily Thursday afternoon 84-55, behind Lamar Patterson, who scored 24 points in the game.

No. 15 UNC opens ACC tourney play against Pittsburgh

The 15th-ranked Tar Heels get their postseason underway with Friday's quarterfinal matchup against the Pittsburgh Panthers. One of the winningest programs in this event, North Carolina comes in with a 90-42 tournament record, with 17 ACC Tournament titles. The Tar Heels had some lulls this season, but very few teams over the second half of the campaign played better basketball. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Marcus Paige One Of Six Finalists For Cousy Award

North Carolina sophomore Marcus Paige is among the six finalists for the 2014 Bob Cousy Collegiate Point Guard of the Year Award, as announced on Friday by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. The original list of 47 candidates was narrowed down to the below watch list of six student athletes by a nationally based committee. (GoHeels.com)

Paige Ingrained in the History Books

Chances are that if you’re a Tar Heel fan, you already love Marcus Paige. Perhaps a little too much. We’ll admit it – after all, the first step to recovery is often recognizing that you have a problem. As a lifelong Carolina Basketball fan, this is something that tends to happen every now and again. Every few years, there are those players that tend to have “it”. (IlonaSF.com)

UNC's Keys to the Postseason

What does North Carolina need to do to be successful and advance far in the ACC and NCAA Tournaments? Of course they need to dominate the boards, play hard defense, get big-time scoring from Marcus Paige and James Michael McAdoo, and knock down a high percentage of free throws. But let's take a deeper look at what this UNC team needs to do this postseason. (Carolina Blue)

ACC's Friday the 14th could be boom or bust for Triangle

No. 4 seed North Carolina, No. 7 N.C. State and No. 3 Duke all are still in the chase for Sunday’s championship. But just as fast as 1-2-3, all could be eliminated by the time the Blue Devils and No. 6 Clemson turn out of the lights near midnight. Top seed Virginia and No. 9 Florida State begin the quarterfinals at noon. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Lucas: The Legend Of Montross

The fundamental thing you need to understand about Eric Montross is that he is going to hate this story. Unfortunately for the big man, he will be honored on Saturday at the Greensboro Coliseum as an ACC Legend. But my guess is that his preference is that the honor would come with a nice certificate in the mail rather than a center court ceremony at the ACC Tournament semifinals. (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels To Face Pitt On Friday
