Complete coverage of North Carolina Basketball.

McAdoo Picking Up His Game

James Michael McAdoo has been content to see his North Carolina teammates get attention even as he's playing some of the best basketball of his career. The 6-foot-9 junior ranks among the ACC's leaders in scoring, rebounding and shooting percentage in league games. He's also looking more assertive and at times more emotional on the court heading into Saturday's game against N C State. (Inside Carolina)

Roy Williams taking nothing for granted against NC State

Roy Williams said Friday that North Carolina sophomore J.P. Tokoto could be one of the best defenders he’s ever coached. Tokoto will have a prime opportunity to showcase his ability when UNC faces N.C. State and Durham native T.J. Warren Saturday at the Smith Center. Warren leads the ACC in scoring at 22.5 points and is coming off his fourth 30-point game of the season. (Durham Herald-Sun)

UNC-NCSU Preview

The Heels are coming off a 78-65 dark match house show against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in a game that few can say will be etched in their memories after the weather relegated the game to the internet. UNC now has its first winning streak of 2014 and will look to make it three in a row as they attempt to pull themselves further up the conference standings. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

UNC vs. N.C. State Preview

North Carolina hosts N.C. State on Saturday (1:00 p.m., ESPN2), as coach Roy Williams looks to improve to 11-0 at home against the Wolfpack during his time as the Tar Heels' head coach. N.C. State enters the game at 14-7 (4-4 ACC) and winners of three straight. UNC (13-7, 3-4 ACC) has won three of its last four games to climb back to the middle of the ACC standings. (Carolina Blue)

Previewing N.C. State

The Tar Heels host N.C. State on Saturday, a team that hasn’t won in Chapel Hill in the Roy Williams era. Tip-off at the Smith Center is set for 1 p.m. and will be televised by ESPN2. N.C. State enters Saturday’s contest with a 14-7 (4-4 ACC) record. Forward T.J. Warren leads the ACC in scoring with a 22.5-points-per-game average to go along with a team-high 7.3 rebounds per game.

Roy Williams Friday Quotes

Roy Williams on not losing to State at home as UNC’s coach: “I take pride in beating anybody anywhere anytime anyplace, that kind of thing. If I didn’t say anything at all, nothing, not one word, about 56 in a row (against Clemson), why do you think I would say something about whatever? There’s a long way between 10 and 56. I didn’t say anything about that and never will." (Carolina Blue)

Lucas: Tar Heel Basketball Notebook

One of the most inexplicable quirks of Carolina's 2014 ACC season is the strange split between Marcus Paige's production in the first half and the second half. During the two-game Tar Heel ACC winning streak, Paige is shooting 10-for-11 from the field and six-of-seven from the three-point line in the final 20 minutes. In the first half of ACC games, Paige is shooting just 13-for-44 (29.5 percent) from the field. (GoHeels.com)

Tale of the Tape: UNC-NC State, Game #1

What's the difference between North Carolina's and NC State's seasons at this point? UNC beat three ranked teams and NC State didn't. The rest of it plays out about the same with questionable losses, getting blown out by Virginia, losing at Wake Forest and both teams beating Georgia Tech. On paper the these two offenses are remarkably similar. (Tar Heel Blog)

Tar Heels Seek Third Straight Win

North Carolina (13-7, 3-4 ACC) will try to win its third consecutive game and even its ACC record when it hosts NC State (14-7, 4-4) on Saturday in the Smith Center. The Tar Heels and Wolfpack will tip off at 1 p.m. The game originally was scheduled for 2 p.m. but the ACC changed the start time earlier this season. Carolina is coming off back-to-back wins over Clemson and at Georgia Tech. (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels turning the corner?

UNC has a chance to pull to .500 in ACC play with Saturday’s game against NC State. Just striking even seemed like an oasis not long ago when the Tar Heels got off to an 0-3 start. It could be argued the younger guys are holding their own. How else would you explain when James Michael McAdoo and J.P. Tokoto sat on the bench in foul trouble against Tech, the Heels actually expanded their lead? (ESPN.com)

Lucas: McAdoo's Mission

James Michael McAdoo has 1,046 career points as a Tar Heel in fewer than three seasons, making him just the 69th player in school history to crack 1,000. In the next few weeks, he will almost certainly pass John Henson, and has a chance at cruising past Sean May and James Worthy, who also posted their scoring stats in three years. And yet he is carving out a junior season that goes beyond the mere numbers. (GoHeels.com)

UNC's Biggest Lessons Learned in ACC Play So Far

Here are a few of the biggest lessons learned in ACC play that should help this team stay on track through the remainder of the schedule. (TSB Sports)
