Roy Williams offers glimpse into intensity that lifted UNC past Duke

“I just love kids that keep playing,” Roy Williams started, “just keep coming at you, just keep coming at you, just keep coming at you.” The first “keep coming at you” was accompanied by an marked rise in intensity. The second was almost growled through gritted teeth. The third ended a bit abruptly, as if he suddenly remembered his audience. It was an honest look into a side of the coach his players know well.

An Electric Night For Win Over Duke

There's never anything quite like the UNC-Duke game, but this year something was different. The building was filled to bursting with fans that were forced to wait through snowstorms and postponements for this game. And they were hungry, hungry enough to make the Smith Center electric. "(The energy) was unbelievable," sophomore Marcus Paige said. (GoHeels.com)

Antawn Jamison will not be a Hawk. The Hawks will waive the forward Friday, one day after he was obtained at the trade deadline from the Clippers.

Five Thoughts From UNC's Win Over Duke

In the second half, UNC employed a series of defensive changes against Duke using the 3-2 zone, man-to-man and, for the first time this season, a 1-3-1 look. While the Tar Heels had used the 3-2 some this season with a fair amount of effectiveness, the 1-3-1 came out of nowhere, or did it? (Tar Heel Blog)

The Revolving Door of Unlikely Tar Heel Heroes

Critics can say what they want about UNC's 2013-14 squad, but this team just gets it done. There isn't one player that is truly dominant night in and night out. And there probably isn't a 2014 lottery pick on this team, even if James Michael McAdoo chooses to forego his final year of eligibility. But these kids have heart. And with every game, it seems there is another hero. (Bleacher Report)

Michael Jordan wins appeal in endoresment case

Companies now will have to be careful how they congratulate the achievements of athletes with whom they don't have endorsement deals. On Wednesday, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Illinois ruled that Jewel Food Stores did not have the right to publicly congratulate Michael Jordan on his Hall of Fame induction in an ad featuring its logo and the supermarket's motto.

Tar Heels' big win creates questions

For thousands of North Carolina fans, Thursday’s 74-66 win by the Tar Heels over Duke was an answered prayer. But looking at it from another angle, the outcome created more questions than answers on some fronts. To wit: Is Leslie McDonald really back? McDonald’s 21 points on 9-for-12 field goal shooting against Duke arguably was the best performance of his college career. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Jay Bilas On The Heels Win And Why K Didn’t Switch To Zone

ESPN’s Jay Bilas, who called last night’s UNC/Duke game joined Mac and Jim to recap the game, UNC’s 1-3-1 zone, life in the ACC, what impresses him most about the Tar Heels, and UNC’s foul shots. On Coach K’s reluctance to play zone: He’s got about 1,000 wins playing man, so the 300-400 losses are all because he didn’t play zone? I don’t think so. It’s more how you play the defense, (CBS Charlotte)

Turner's Take: Multiple Defense

There were certainly offensive highlights in Carolina’s thrilling win over Duke Thursday night - Tokoto’s dunk follow, Paige’s three and Leslie’s jumper for the lead, to name three - but the game hinged on a terrific defensive stretch that kept the game within striking distance. Carolina showed three different defenses to confuse the Blue Devils and ultimately emerge victorious. (GoHeels.com)

Time to believe in Carolina

North Carolina finally gave a reason to believe what you see. This unlikely bunch of Tar Heels became the first team in history to beat the Associated Press preseason No. 1 (Kentucky), No. 2 (Michigan State), No. 3 (Louisville) and No. 4 (Duke) with their 74-66 win over the Blue Devils on Thursday. Their previous wins all gave way to inconsistent play. But Thursday’s victory is the one that can be trusted. (ESPN.com)

New-found maturity, pent-up emotion helps UNC ‘rush’ past Duke

Whether the unusually raucous crowd of 21,750 was the spark that ignited UNC’s eighth straight victory overall and first in three years against its hated rival at home or vice versa is both uncertain and inconsequential. All that matters is that the once-stumbling Tar Heels are rapidly rounding into the formidable team they were originally predicted to be. And that people are starting to take notice.

The Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs both expressed interest in the veteran forward over the summer as he looked for a contender with whom to chase a first NBA title. (ESPN.com)
