Correcting Media Inaccuracies on UNC Investigation

In today’s media world of hot takes, facts often fall by the wayside. However, opinions are only valid and should only be published for public consumption when such commentary is based upon a factual understanding of the topic material. That’s not always the case when it comes to the complexity surrounding the UNC case. (Inside Carolina)

Rivals eager for UNC to be punished for scandal are getting what they want, slowly

You want UNC to suffer, and you want it now. Well, maybe not you, personally, but someone you know wants UNC to feel it. Or, at the very least, someone you’ve encountered through social media. Nothing positive happens with Tar Heels basketball without someone on Twitter taking a snarky swipe at the glacial pace of the NCAA’s examination of the university’s athletic program.

Comparing Brice Johnson to UNC big men legends

Brice Johnson is the most recent in a line of talented big men under Coach Roy Williams at UNC. Sean May, Tyler Hansbrough, and Tyler Zeller's jerseys are all in the Dean Dome rafters.

A Tar Heel Fan's Guide To Houston

We're going to assume that it's Thursday, and if you're going to Houston, you already have travel arrangements. It's not exactly the kind of place you can just swing by. Why can't everything be in Greensboro? If you're still pondering a last-minute trip, though, consider flying into San Antonio or Dallas. Both are roughly three-hour drives from Houston and airfares were more reasonable. (GoHeels.com)

Marcus Ginyard: The Final Four is Different

Marcus Ginyard: I was blessed to experience the Final Four two years in a row, with two very different outcomes. Reaching the 2008 Final Four in San Antonio was a dream for us. We were used to being in the local and national spotlight, but the Final Four is, well, different. And 2009, of course, was an overwhelming landslide in our favor, but much in part because of our experience the year before. (Chapelboro.com)

A guide to the Final Four in Houston

UNC vs. Syracuse, Round 3. The Tar Heels won both regular-season meetings by wrecking Orange's zone with their strong post play.

Theo Pinson Making Winning Plays for UNC

Brice Johnson handles the points and rebounds, Marcus Paige the assists and Joel Berry the steals. Finding a new, unique way to contribute without the ball was a goal Roy Williams and Theo Pinson set entering the season.

Brice Johnson and Kris Jenkins played on the same youth basketball team

Clemson senior guard Jordan Roper posted a throwback basketball photo of himself, Jenkins, Johnson and current Clemson football player Jadar Johnson. Talk about a stacked team. (Campus Rush)

In the end, Final Four will come down to No. 1

I’ve bristled over my bracket since my national title pick, Michigan State, bowed out in the first round.

In a tumultuous season, the Tar Heels make sure the most talented team lands on top, as the championship goes to Chapel Hill for the sixth time. (Boston Globe)
