Breaking down the ACC schedules of UNC, Duke and N.C. State

North Carolina, which returns nine of the top 10 players from a Sweet 16 appearance, will have three consecutive road games during a span of nine days in early February. The Tar Heels will play at Louisville on Feb. 1, at Notre Dame on Feb. 6 and at Boston College on Feb. 9. For UNC and Duke, the first meeting on Feb. 17 in Chapel Hill will be the 13th league game for each school. (Fayetteville Observer)

Rapid Reactions: UNC Basketball Schedule Release

The most unique characteristic of the 2015-16 schedule comes in late January, when Carolina will make just the second three-game ACC road trip in the program's history. This year's version might be even tougher. It includes games at Louisville, Notre Dame and Boston College. That means UNC will travel 3,190 air miles in the span of nine days, a nearly NBA-like schedule. (GoHeels.com)

Predicting the top 10 high-impact seniors for 2015-16

2. Marcus Paige, guard, UNC: While his overall numbers dropped a bit this past season, Paige ranked third in the ACC during conference play in offensive efficiency. All of this came while battling plantar fasciitis in his right foot and bone spurs in the same ankle, for which he underwent surgery in April. A healthier Paige may be the nation’s best point guard.

QB Kanler Coker Joins UNC Basketball

An injury ended UNC quarterback Kanler Coker's football career, but it has enabled him to realize his dream of becoming a Tar Heel basketball player. The school announced on Tuesday that Coker, a junior, had been added to the roster for the 2015-16 season. He played with the team throughout the summer and has been participating in preseason conditioning. (Inside Carolina)

UNC Men's Basketball Roster Moves

Coleman, a native of Raleigh, played in 10 games last season and had three assists. He attended Broughton High School and played on the UNC junior varsity team in 2012-13 and 2013-14. (GoHeels.com)

UNC Basketball Schedule To Be Completed Soon

The ACC plans to release the complete 2015-16 basketball schedule--some times and TV networks may be added later, but all the dates will be finalized--this week. That will fill in the rest of the details for a Tar Heel team expected to be very highly regarded nationally, and a group that already has a solid nonconference schedule on the docket. (GoHeels.com)

Harrison Barnes, other NBA players bring basketball overseas in exchange for food, All-Star votes

Harrison Barnes was just thrilled to see pandas at a panda breeding center, while Kenneth Faried decided to take a bit of time off training to enjoy exploring the world with his girlfriend. Andre Iguodala meanwhile was deciding between going shopping with his (new) wife and eating as much food in Tokyo as possible. That is, if he could figure out how to say everything. (USA Today)

Danny Green feels at home with revamped Spurs

The NBA is currently in an era where there is a premium on 3-point shooting and perimeter defense, making players who have the ability to do both at a high level hot commodities around the league. One of those “3-and-D” guys is San Antonio Spurs starting forward Danny Green, who was due for a big payday this NBA offseason as he was an unrestricted free agent. (Rappler)

Video: UNC's Theo Pinson nails long distance jump shot

While just messing around beneath the banners of UNC's Dean Dome, sophomore wing Theo Pinson launched and nailed a long distance jump shot. The shot was deep from the court's sideline. Even more miraculous was that Pinson, a 6-foot-6, 195-pound Greensboro native called his shot by proclaiming, "Hey listen, get this on camera, we going to ESPN." (Carolina Blue)

Funeral held for Dr. Daniel “Danny” Lotz

A funeral was held Sunday for former UNC basketball player Danny Lotz, who was a member of the 1957 Championship team and the son-in-law of the Rev. Billy Graham. The speakers at the service, which hundreds attended on Sunday, included some former basketball teammates and several family members, including his three granddaughters — the youngest of which sang “Amazing Grace.” (WNCN)

Ty Lawson will help Rockets rely less on James Harden

The Houston Rockets’ James Harden was one of just four players who used more than 3,000 possessions (shooting, passing or turning the ball over), leading the league by being directly involved with more than 3,300 plays. No place was this burden more apparent than in saving late shot-clock possessions... This is a problem the addition of Ty Lawson might solve. (Washington Post)

Kennedy Meeks among top 10 high-impact juniors for 2015-16

If Kennedy Meeks can play more than the 23 minutes per game he logged last season and maintain his per-40 minutes averages of 19.5 and 12.7 rebounds, the Tar Heels will be especially dangerous. Carolina looks like a leading national title contender with Marcus Paige and Justin Jackson on the perimeter and Isaiah Hicks and Brice Johnson complementing Meeks up front. (Sports Illustrated)

Justin Jackson among high-impact sophomores for 2015-16

Justin Jackson impressed with his advanced offensive game and earned significant minutes right away as a freshman. Though he struggled at certain points during conference play, his performance trended upward near the end of the regular season and into the tourney. That raised expectations for what he can accomplish as a sophomore. (Sports Illustrated)
