Basketball Q&A With Tar Heel Blog

If you ask Roy Williams he likes to talk about their "sense of urgency" which is code for playing with effort and intensity. Honestly it is really something different every game with the one notable consistent factor being the defense. UNC has played very well on the defensive end. (Gobbler Country)

Preview: #19 UNC at Virginia Tech

With a win in this game UNC locks up the #4 seed in the ACC Tournament and secures a bye until Friday of the tournament. On the NCAA Tournament side of things, this is a game UNC cannot lose since Virginia Tech's RPI would be a poison pill for the Tar Heels' seeding possibilities. Prediction: UNC 74 VT 64 (Tar Heel Blog)

When The Player Becomes The Moment

On Wednesday evening, Marcus Paige provided fans, particularly those of the light blue variety, as well as casual observers, a legendary moment somewhere in between that middle schooler and Dwight Clark. (Thrown Away To Worthy)

Three to know preview of North Carolina at Virginia Tech

Roy Williams compares winning on the road to taking an opponent's brownies. After Wednesday, he is 57-31 in ACC road games, and his 64.8 win percentage ranks second in league history behind former Duke coach Vic Bubas (66.7).

Paige’s second-half efforts have been ‘Super’ for UNC

Fit him with a pair of horn-rimmed glasses and an old-school Fedora, and Marcus Paige could pass for an updated version of mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent. Good thing for the Tar Heels that the young point guard also does a pretty good imitation of Kent’s alter-ego, Superman. Instead of stepping out of a phone booth and into a red cape, Paige usually does his changeover at halftime (Wilmington Star News)

Tar Heels intent on avoiding letdown at Virginia Tech

North Carolina has saved the worst for last. Having already faced every other ACC opponent, the Tar Heels will face last-place Virginia Tech Saturday at Cassell Coliseum. While No. 19 UNC has won 10 straight for the first time since its 2008-09 national championship season, the Hokies have won just twice since Dec. 8 — beating Maryland-Eastern Shore on Dec. 31 and Miami on Feb. 15.

Carolina Recognizes Tar Heel Trailblazers

UNC-Virginia Tech Preview

The Heels will travel to Blacksburg, Virginia to take on the Virginia Tech Hokies Saturday and that game is a precursor to the final two games of the regular season which includes Senior Night against Notre Dame and a road finale against Duke. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Tale of the Tape: UNC-Virginia Tech

This is as big a statistical mismatch as UNC has seen since December and that includes Boston College because at the very least, the Eagles had some semblance of an offense. Virginia Tech is lacking on both ends of the floor and it is even more pronounced with you look at the conference only stats. (Tar Heel Blog)
