George Karl's book is controversial, but is much more as well

The irony of the controversy surrounding former Nuggets coach George Karl, in the days since excerpts of his new book “Furious George” were made public, is found in a passage in the pages of his own prose. “I just wish someone had managed me, like a GM does with a talented player,” Karl says in the book.

Dorn family torn over NC State, UNC rivalry

Torin Dorn Sr. is a North Carolina fan. He went to UNC and played football there almost 30 years ago. His son, Myles, just finished his freshman season on UNC’s football team. His wife, Rhonda, is a UNC graduate. By all accounts, the Dorns, from Charlotte, are a Carolina family. (Charlotte Observer)

North Carolina has strong history in rescheduled games

When UNC announced that its game against N.C. State would be postponed from Saturday night to Sunday afternoon, it hardly marked the first time the Tar Heels have had to push a game later in the schedule. In fact, this isn’t the first time that a Tar Heel game against N.C. State has been postponed. The 1991 contest was the victim of historical circumstances. (Carolina Blue)

Guards could figure heavily as Tar Heels, Wolfpack meet

The reviews are growing more impressive for North Carolina State point guard Dennis Smith Jr. He’s headed into the most high-profile game of his young collegiate career Sunday afternoon when the Wolfpack visits North Carolina for an Atlantic Coast Conference game. “He has got the whole package,” North Carolina coach Roy Williams said. (Burlington Times News)

Berry's Balanced Attack

Joel Berry is going to have his work cut out for him going up against Dennis Smith Jr when the Heels take on N.C. State. But Berry knows the game is about more than just a great point guard matchup. “I’m excited just because it’s N.C. State and we always get fired up for them. It’s going to be a great game, but I am not going to make it into a one-on-one game,” said Berry. (Carolina Blue)

Lucas: Delay Of Game

Tonight’s game against NC State, which has been postponed to Sunday at 1 p.m. due to treacherous road conditions, joins the following list of Tar Heel basketball games delayed by weather or other circumstances: Feb. 12, 2014: Duke’s team bus was unable to make it to Durham to pick up the Blue Devils. The rescheduled game, on Feb. 20, was one of the best atmospheres of the Roy Williams era. (GoHeels.com)

Scouting NC State

Like usual in the six-year Mark Gottfried era, NC State has been excellent offensively but mediocre defensively. The ‘Pack have been consistent year-over-year under Gottfried: their offenses have always ranked between 10th and 35th in the country (averaging 27th), while their defenses have fallen between 76th and 150th each season (with an average of 110th).

Roy Williams: UNC is 'Moses Malone-ing' it on the boards

North Carolina leads the nation in rebounding margin (+14), and while UNC is an elite rebounding team, this stat is a bit misleading. Rebounding margin is usually a strong characteristic for how a team is rebounding, because it accounts for the number of possessions. (Carolina Blue)

Know Your Opponent: North Carolina State

Dennis Smith has been the talk of Raleigh as one of the nation's most dynamic freshman. After suffering a torn ACL prior to his senior year of high school, Smith opted to graduate early to get a head start on his time at NC State. That decision appears to have paid off, as Smith leads the team in scoring (19.6 ppg), assists (6.5 apg) and steals (2.1 spg). (GoHeels.com)

J.P. Tokoto, P.J. Hairston teammates again in NBA D-League

J.P. Tokoto led Rio Grande Valley with a season-high 28 points. Tokoto also provides a steady hand on defense. In his last five games, Tokoto has 14 steals. The Vipers welcomed back P.J. Hairston, who had missed more than a month with a groin injury. Hairston added 11 points and provides another sharpshooter who can play multiple positions. (The Monitor)

Loyalties tested for rapper J Cole by NC State-North Carolina game

The 31-year-old Fayetteville platinum-selling rapper is a lifelong fan of the Tar Heels. That was until this season. Cole, whose current album “4 Your Eyez Only” finished 2016 at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, is good friends with N.C. State freshman guard Dennis Smith Jr., who is also from Fayetteville. (Charlotte Observer)

Berry On What Pinson Brings To The Heels

Theo Pinson will make his season debut Saturday night versus N.C. State at the Smith Center, and his entry into the lineup comes at a good time for the Tar Heels. Perhaps no Tar Heel understands what Pinson brings to the Heels more than junior point guard Joel Berry. They are classmates and friends, and they often occupy a lot of the same space on the court.
