Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Wake Forest

It's incredible the difference between the Carolina team that played Wake Forest on Saturday and the Carolina team that played Wake Forest in Winston-Salem. There just aren't many similarities at all in any area of the game. The Tar Heels did everything--everything--better today than they did in the first meeting. (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels Welcome Wake Forest

North Carolina, winner of eight consecutive games, looks to extend its run on short rest when it hosts Wake Forest on Saturday in Chapel Hill. The Tar Heels and Demon Deacons will tip off at 12:07 p.m. in the Smith Center. The syndicated ACC Network of stations will televise Saturday's game with Tim Brando (play-by-play) and Cory Alexander (analyst) on the call. (GoHeels.com)

Preview: UNC vs Wake Forest

Wake Forest has been beyond awful in ACC road games during the Jeff Bzdelik era. In the past almost four seasons, Wake has won an ACC road game just twice. One was versus Boston College in 2012 and the other exactly one month ago at Virginia Tech. Even if UNC does not play well, there is zero reason to lose this game. Prediction: UNC 78 Wake Forest 65 (Tar Heel Blog)

Little time to savor Duke win as UNC meets Wake at noon

North Carolina doesn’t have much time to move on from its most emotional win of the season. Almost 36 hours after students rushed the court to celebrate a 74-66 win over No. 5 Duke, UNC will be back at the Smith Center today to take on Wake Forest (12:07 p.m., ACC Network). Thursday’s court-storming capped an exhilarating night for the Tar Heels. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Deacons will try to exploit Tar Heels’ fatigue

North Carolina fans filing out of the Smith Center in after Thursday’s emotionally-charged victory over Duke couldn’t help but wonder how much would the Tar Heels have left in the tank today for Wake Forest. An equally pertinent question for Wake Forest is, will it matter? Since losing at home to Georgia Tech on Feb. 1, the Deacons have played like a team whose race was run. (Winston-Salem Journal)

Q&A with Harrison Barnes

Somewhere in between the Rising Stars Game and the Dunk Contest, Harrison Barnes finds a moment during All-Star Weekend 2014 to relax. He deserves a minute to kick his feet up. So far this season, Barnes’ points (10.3 ppg) and minutes (29.1 mpg) are up from his rookie season despite a move to the bench. We asked Barnes about his new role, his time at All-Star, and more. (SLAM Online)

UNC-Wake Forest Preview

But despite the huge win over Duke, UNC has another game less than 48 hours later against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, a team that beat them once this season. If revenge is a dish best served cold then it's also one that needs to be served with extreme focus while being prepared under the drunk euphoria of a huge rivalry win. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Video: NCAA Men of March - Roy Williams

North Carolina head coach Roy Williams sits down with basketball analyst Bill Raftery in this installment of NCAA Men of March. The series is a blend of all-access footage and at-home interviews of some of the most successful and influential college basketball coaches in today’s game. (Part I | Part II)

A history of Duke-UNC violence

The Tar Heels and Blue Devils have a long history of on-court scuffles, dating back as far as 1961's infamous Larry Brown-Art Heyman brawl. Even the teams' managers have gotten involved recently. Here's a collection of videos and photos documenting the bad blood between the rivals. (USA Today)

Leslie McDonald's Night to Remember

There is no doubt that senior Leslie McDonald has struggled the past couple of games. No one will deny that. Not even McDonald himself. But he nonetheless was eager to get the ball in the early minutes of Thursday night's game against arch-rival Duke---his last game in the Smith Center against the Blue Devils. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

UNC to debut 1982-inspired Nike uniform on Saturday

Inspired by one of the most celebrated moments in UNC basketball history, the Nike Hyper Elite Dominance uniform pays tribute to the 1982 NCAA championship game when Michael Jordan hit a jumper from the wing with only 17 seconds remaining to put UNC on top 63-62, sealing the championship. The uniform features the iconic Tar Heel logo and color-blocking worn by the 1982 team. (Nike)

Previewing Wake Forest

The Tar Heels only get about 36 hours to recover from their exhausting rivalry battle, as Wake Forest comes to Chapel Hill on Saturday. UNC enters the game having won eight in a row, while WFU has lost six in a row. Tip-off at the Smith Center is set for noon and will be televised by the ACC Network. (Inside Carolina)
