A Closer Look: Notre Dame

Forceful defense will be as key as ever for North Carolina as Notre Dame starters Pat Connaughton and Eric Atkins are both in the ACC's top 10 in assist-to-turnover ratio and the team ranks 11th nationally and second in the conference for the same. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Preview: Notre Dame At UNC

The Irish head to Chapel Hill for their final regular-season game of the season Monday. At 15-15 (6-11 ACC), Notre Dame is searching for its second true road win of the season. Head coach Mike Brey’s squad is coming off an overtime loss on senior day to Pittsburgh and the limited roster is a bit banged up heading into Monday’s season finale. (Carolina Blue)

Another ACC Player of the Week Honor for Marcus Paige

UNC sophomore guard Marcus Paige is the Co-ACC Men's Basketball Player of the Week along with Virginia's Malcolm Brogdon. Syracuse guard Tyler Ennis is the ACC Freshman of the Week. Paige was cited for his performances in UNC road wins over NC State and Virginia Tech. It is the second week in a row and the fourth time this season Paige has won ACC Player of the Week honors.

J.P. Tokoto Soaring to New Heights with Strong Family Values and Support

For athletes as naturally blessed as UNC small forward, J.P. Tokoto, the game tends to come pretty easy. But being gifted only gets one so far in life and on the hardwood. That's something his parents, Trevor and Laurence Trimble, have always understood. It's a message they continually deliver to their son, making sure he stays grounded as a player, a teammate and a human being. (Bleacher Report)

No. 4 ACC seed could be a plus for Tar Heels

When is fourth place better than second or third? In North Carolina’s case - Duke as well for that matter - that sort of reverse logic could make sense at next week’s ACC Tournament in Greensboro. Entering tonight’s game in Chapel Hill against Notre Dame (7 p.m., ESPN), the Tar Heels (22-7, 12-4 ACC) are tied for third with Duke (23-6, 12-4). (WRAL Sports Fan)

Preview: #14 UNC vs Notre Dame

Senior Night in Chapel Hill. This will be the final home games for fifth year senior Leslie McDonald and three walk-ons, Denzel Robinson, Wade Moody and James Manor. Per UNC tradition, those four players will comprise four-fifths of the Tar Heel starting lineup. In all likelihood the fifth starting spot will go to Marcus Paige. Prediction: UNC 85 Notre Dame 70 (Tar Heel Blog)

Tar Heels Welcome Notre Dame Tonight

North Carolina will close out its 2013-14 home schedule and try to win its 12th game in a row when it hosts Notre Dame on Monday night in Chapel Hill. The Tar Heels and Fighting Irish will tip off just after 7 p.m. in the Smith Center. Monday will mark the final home games for UNC seniors Leslie McDonald, James Manor, Wade Moody and Denzel Robinson. (GoHeels.com)

NCAA Tournament Projection Compilation

With Selection Sunday less than two weeks away, it's reasonable to start looking ahead to Carolina's NCAA Tournament fortunes. After this weekend's play, we compiled the following projections from around the college basketball world. Having the guesses all in one place leads you to one very easy conclusion: there is absolutely no consensus on the Tar Heels right now. (GoHeels.com)

Hot Carolina Squad Hopes To Send Seniors Out On Top Against Notre Dame

The No. 19 North Carolina men’s basketball team, 22-7 overall and 12-4 in the ACC, will be aiming to make it twelve straight victories Monday night in the Smith Center when it takes on struggling Notre Dame, 15-15 on the season and 6-11 in the conference. Head Coach Roy Williams says he credits some of the role players for keeping the Carolina winning streak alive. (Chapelboro.com)

Leslie McDonald, seniors to bid Smith Center goodbye

There’ve been highs — 21 points against Duke in the midst of a nine-game win streak — and there’ve been lows in Leslie McDonald's career — an ACL tear, a year on the bench rehabbing it, and an NCAA investigation. But tonight against Notre Dame, McDonald will compete on the Smith Center court for the last time alongside fellow seniors James Manor, Denzel Robinson and Wade Moody. (Daily Tar Heel)

Lucas: Down The Stretch They Come

It doesn't seem possible that the Smith Center will host its final game of the 2013-14 season tonight. Usually, early March is complete with intrigue and multiple ACC postseason permutations. That's not the case this season. UNC's win at Virginia Tech on Saturday clinched a top-4 seed in the ACC Tournament for the Tar Heels, which comes with a precious double bye in the event. (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels, McDonald on upswing

North Carolina had moments of promise and plenty of missteps early in the season before hitting its stride late. In some respects, that journey mirrors the one traveled by senior guard Leslie McDonald, who will be honored tonight at the Smith Center as UNC plays its final home game of the season against Notre Dame (7 p.m., ESPN). (Durham Herald-Sun)

UNC-Notre Dame Preview

After a slow start to the conference season, North Carolina turned it around in a major way, winning 11 straight to clinch a first-round bye in the upcoming ACC tournament. The No. 19 Tar Heels will look to continue that run Monday night when they host Notre Dame in the team's final home game of the season. This matchup will close out the regular season for the Fighting Irish, who have lost three of four. (CBS Sports)

College Basketball's Best Dunkers

J.P. Tokoto (North Carolina): Early in the second half of Carolina’s game against Pitt earlier this month, my perception of Tokoto was forever changed. By the way, in case you think Tokoto is a Dunk All-Star starter just because of one dunk, I should mention that there are plenty of other examples that will leave you shaking your head.
