Lucas: Through The Roof

You cannot beat this. I’m sorry, but you can’t. Maybe the Smith Center is not cool. Maybe it does not get the attention of other venues when the world talks about the best college basketball atmospheres. But you cannot find a place anywhere in the country that provides the charge given by 21,750 blue-wearing maniacs on Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. (GoHeels.com)

UNC-Florida State Postgame Quotes

Roy Williams: "It was a big-time game. It was the kind of game that you like to be involved in. You like it a lot more at the end if your team has more points. I really love Florida State’s club. We got a big lift from Theo Pinson, made his first field goals of the year, three for five. The dunk was a big play. Mentally, the three pointer was a big play for us." (GoHeels.com)

The best defenders that Roy Williams has coached at UNC

Harrison Barnes is so consistent it’s spooky

Harrison Barnes is a 20-point scorer. He scores 20 when it rains; he scores 20 when it shines. He scores 20 at home; he scores 20 on the road. He scores 20 on back to backs, and he scores 20 with ample rest. This level of scoring consistency, outside of Dirk, has not been seen in Dallas since Michael Finley. (Mavs Moneyball)
