Video: UNC Falls at Indiana, 76-67 - Highlights

Justin Jackson scored 21 points to pace the Tar Heels, but North Carolina came up short on the road, 76-67, to No. 13 Indiana in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge on November 30, 2016. View Video...

No. 13 Hoosiers hold on to upset No. 3 North Carolina 76-67

O.G. Anunoby scored 16 points, James Blackmon Jr. had 14 and Robert Johnson added 11 Wednesday, leading No. 13 Indiana past No. 3 North Carolina 76-67 in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

Indiana stops second chances, drops No. 3 North Carolina

On Wednesday, Indiana not only withstood UNC's relentless onslaught of size and skill but very nearly mastered it -- enough, at least, to withstand the Tar Heels' inevitable late run en route to a 76-67 win. The Hoosiers began the game with a barrage of Robert Johnson buckets and James Blackmon 3s, keyed by precise passing and off-ball movement. (ESPN.com)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - UNC vs. Indiana

Obviously, Carolina wants to win every single game. But Wednesday night's 76-67 loss at Indiana was the type you are going to lose in the course of a college basketball season. The Hoosiers pulled out every stop, had a full-throated sellout crowd behind them, got an uncharacteristically good perimeter shooting game to hold off the visitors. (GoHeels.com)

How Dean Smith's Push For Civil Rights Transformed Chapel Hill

Dean Smith is known as a legendary basketball coach at UNC. His teams won 879 games and two NCAA national championships. But one of Smith's most crowning achievements isn't instilled in a trophy. In 1967, Smith recruited basketball player Charlie Scott, the first African-American scholarship athlete at UNC. It was a seminal act for Smith and furthered his push for civil rights in the South.

Vince Carter’s impact goes coast to coast

Carter didn’t play against the Raptors on Wednesday, sidelined with a strained hip flexor he suffered when the Grizzlies were beaten by the Charlotte Hornets on Monday night. But it was not the last time he’d be in the Air Canada Centre as a player. He’s long said he’d like to have a 20-year NBA career, which would mean one more season after this. (Toronto Star)

Pistons' Reggie Bullock Out 2-to-4 Months

Reggie Bullock will undergo surgery to address a left meniscus tear and is expected to remain out for 2-to-4 months. Bullock suffered the injury a week ago, and Detroit will now likely be without the reserve guard until around the All-Star break. Bullock, who battled back spasms earlier in the season, appeared in only four games before suffering the injury. (CBS Sports)

Luke Maye Expected to Play vs. Indiana

North Carolina has announced that sophomore forward Luke Maye has been cleared by UNC's medical staff and will play tonight against Indiana in Bloomington's Assembly Hall. Maye missed the last five games while recovering from a sprained ankle he suffered on Nov. 13. In two games the Charlotte native has averaged 2.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.5 assists. (Carolina Blue)

Joel Berry's improved defense

Joel Berry is a better defender this season. It's clear that he has taken that next step and made defense a priority in his game. Berry's intensity on defense has made UNC a tough team to beat. Both head coach Roy Williams and Berry discussed the junior point guard's defensive improvements and what makes him so good on that side of the ball. (Carolina Blue)

UNC's offense more open, balanced

There is a lot that could explain why UNC's offense is flowing like a well-oiled machine just seven games into the 2016-17 season. Experience players at all five positions. Improved shooting. Leadership. Quality big men. A point guard who can do it all. North Carolina is shooting 51.9% from the field and 39.2% from three. (Carolina Blue)

Haunted by UNC loss, Juwan Morgan ready for battle in the paint

After Indiana’s 101-86 loss to North Carolina in the Sweet Sixteen in March, every player had a different image in his mind from the loss. They talked about those images, those snapshots of defeat, every day during the offseason. For forward Juwan Morgan, going from his freshman to sophomore season, one moment kept pestering him. (Inside Indiana)

Jay Bilas blown away by how good UNC has looked

After losing what UNC lost after last year, the Tar Heels would have been forgiven for taking a small step back at the beginning of the new season. But Roy Williams' team is out to a 7-0 start with impressive wins over Oklahoma State and Wisconsin, and ESPN's Jay Bilas thinks they look even better than they did this time last year (Carolina Blue)
