Updated ACC Tournament Seeding Scenarios for UNC

With the win over Georgia Tech, UNC moves to 11-6 in ACC play and locks down no worse than 5th place in the ACC. The Tar Heels can still move up to the 4 seed but need some help. 4 seed scenario No. 1: UNC beats Duke, Louisville loses to Notre Dame and Virginia. UNC would finish 12-6 and in sole possession of fourth place. (Tar Heel Blog)

Ranking college basketball's history of 30-0 teams

7. 1956-57 North Carolina Tar Heels. Went 32-0 and won the NCAA title. Maybe the most overlooked dominant team in the history of the sport. The Tar Heels, coached by Frank McGuire, are led by Lennie Rosenbluth's 28.0 points per game and Pete Brennan's 10.4 boards average (Rosenbluth's 895 points that season is still a school record). UNC took down Wilt Chamberlain and Kansas in the title game, a triple-overtime 54-53 burner. (CBS Sports)

Joel Berry comes into his own at Georgia Tech

Sometimes the biggest things come in the smallest packages. Sometimes it appears as points. Other times it’s assists, or blocks, or any number of minute statistics that fail to capture the scope of a moment. Perhaps it’s something different entirely. Tuesday night, during the North Carolina men’s basketball team’s 81-49 demolition of Georgia Tech, it was all three from one player — Joel Berry. (Daily Tar Heel)

Lucas: Many Happy Returns

Theo Pinson missed plenty while injuring his foot at Wake Forest on Jan. 21. But at no point during the 11 games he missed did he forget how to count. Pinson’s sudden appearance in the closing minutes of Tuesday’s 81-49 victory over Georgia Tech was the game’s most unexpected highlight. Roy Williams had said on Monday he did not expect his freshman to play. (GoHeels.com)

Freshmen Pace Tar Heels In Win Over Georgia Tech

While Theo Pinson made his return late in No. 19 North Carolina’s 81-49 win over Georgia Tech on Tuesday, it was his classmates – Joel Berry and Justin Jackson - that sparked an explosive run early in building an 18-point halftime lead. Neither Berry nor Jackson played much like freshmen at McCamish Pavilion as both attacked with confidence. (Inside Carolina)

Tar Heels Scramble Past Yellow Jackets

No. 19 North Carolina routed Georgia Tech in their first meeting on Feb. 21 with a lethal display of offensive efficiency. The Tar Heels delivered a similar result through a different manner on Tuesday, scoring 25 points off 18 Yellow Jacket turnovers. The Yellow Jackets committed seven turnovers in their first 13 possessions in falling behind by seven points. (Inside Carolina)

Roy Williams Post-Georgia Tech Quotes

After you beat Georgia Tech last time, your team had a letdown against N.C. State. How do you prevent that from happening again on Saturday? Roy Williams: "If we have a letdown this time, guys, we don’t have a frickin’ heart. Come on. You’re playing Duke and they beat us last time. It’s the greatest rivalry in all of college basketball. If we get beat, it won’t be because of a letdown." (Inside Carolina)

UNC-Georgia Tech Postgame Notes

The 32-point win was UNC's largest win over the Yellow Jackets in Atlanta. It was UNC's largest overall win over Georgia Tech since a 92-55 win on Jan. 24, 1987, in Chapel Hill. Marcus Paige had a career high 6 steals and hit his 200th career three-pointer. It was the first time all season that the only Tar Heels in double figures were freshmen—15 by Joel Berry II and 13 by Justin Jackson. (GoHeels.com)

Recap & Analysis: UNC 81, Georgia Tech 49

It is unclear how many conclusions can be drawn from this game. Joel Berry has played well in the past two games and is the first guard off the bench ahead of Nate Britt. If his outside shot and overall play is finally clicking it could be a huge boost to an offense that sorely needs perimeter scoring. Likewise, Theo Pinson's return could be a catalyst providing he can give Roy Williams meaningful minutes. (Tar Heel Blog)

No. 19 North Carolina crushes Georgia Tech 81-49

Just in time for a rematch with Duke, No. 19 North Carolina established some late-season momentum by beating Georgia Tech 81-49 on Tuesday night, completing a sweep of the struggling Yellow Jackets. The Tar Heels, who have won two straight for the first time since January, close their regular season against No. 3 Duke on Saturday. Duke beat North Carolina 92-90 in overtime on Feb. 18. (ESPN.com)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Georgia Tech

So with the 81-49 win, now attention can officially turn to the season finale against Duke. The Tar Heels have clinched no worse than a fifth seed in next week's ACC Tournament and could possibly play their way into the four spot. Worth much more than that, of course, is the chance on Saturday to avenge the overtime loss in Cameron Indoor Stadium from earlier this year. (GoHeels.com)
