Clippers like Austin Rivers, but they miss Reggie Bullock

Reggie Bullock continued to mostly sit on the Phoenix bench Sunday, stuck at the bottom of the Suns' depth chart at small forward. The team doesn't intend for him to stay there forever. "We see him as another piece we can use going forward with shooting ability," Suns Coach Jeff Hornacek said of the former first-round draft pick, whose 1 1/2 seasons with the Clippers were beset by injuries. (Los Angeles Times)

Marcus Paige on the Mend

Marcus Paige joked with his teammates that he was back after his game-winning layup against Louisville earlier this month. As No. 13 North Carolina prepares for Saturday’s rematch, Paige is finally playing up to his Preseason ACC Player of the Year status. While Paige said he’s still experiencing some pain in his foot when he has to sprint the full length of the court, he’s on the mend. (Inside Carolina)

UNC’s Sasha Seymore Following His Dreams

UNC’s Sasha Seymore is used to winning titles… but not always in basketball. Despite being the senior class president and the recipient of the most prestigious scholarship UNC offers, Carolina basketball player may just be the sweetest title yet. Seymore played in six games as a walk-on for the Tar Heels before tearing his ACL in a game against Alabama-Birmingham. (Chapelboro.com)

Improving Britt's Quiet Confidence

Nate Britt has had his share of adversity in the last couple of weeks, both on and off the court. The Upper Marlboro, Md., native lost his grandfather on the day of UNC’s 81-79 victory over NC State and then injured his mouth two games later against Wake Forest. But despite the 15 stitches that were still in his lip on Monday night, and in honor of his grandfather, Britt gave his best performance of the year. (GoHeels.com)

Video: Young UNC Fan Gets Into National Anthem

The son of Eric Hoots, who is UNC's director of player development, at UNC-Syracuse on Monday night stands with his head down for the National Anthem and after it's over pulls his shirt off to reveal his game jersey, just like the players. Go ahead and offer this kid Roy, he's a gamer. (Tar Heel Blog)

Video: Wayne Ellington After Career-High 28 Points

Despite career-high performances from both Wayne Ellington and rookie Jordan Clarkson, combining for half of the Los Angeles Lakers 92 points, the Lakers lost by six points to the Washington Wizards Tuesday night. In addition to Ellington’s 28 points, his 12 made field goals were also a new career-high. (Lakers Nation)

Titus’s Top 12: UNC a more athletic, more uptempo, less bulky version of Arizona

Marcus Paige is back to playing like an All-American. Kennedy Meeks has been great all year. J.P. Tokoto has expanded his game so much that calling him a mere “dunker” is a huge slap in the face. Brice Johnson is one of the most underrated players in college basketball. And Justin Jackson is the best freshman in the nation who never gets mentioned in “best freshmen” discussions. (Grantland)

One on One with J.P. Tokoto

J.P. Tokoto: "I’ve always been able to hit an open teammate and use that court vision. I played a lot of point guard my senior year of high school, so I feel like that helped a lot in transitioning to college. As far as anything changing, I worked on my ball-handling, which helps a lot, I don’t have to look down at the ball at all when I’m dribbling. I feel like it just comes down to teammates finishing plays." (GoHeels.com)

Lucas: UNC Basketball Notebook

One of the biggest stories of Carolina’s recent surge has been the play of the Tar Heel big men. Brice Johnson has four double-doubles in his last six games, while Kennedy Meeks has two double-doubles in Atlantic Coast Conference play and is coming off a solid performance against Syracuse’s Rakeem Christmas on Monday night.

Roy Williams Radio Show Quotes

Hubert Davis on Monday's win over Syracuse: "I think as a team one of the things that we struggle with is that we have a tendency to be soft. And when you play a team like Syracuse, they’re a tough team. They’re a physical team and one of the things that we talked about at halftime was that there was no way out of this from a competitive standpoint. You’re going to have to fight." (Inside Carolina)

Nate Britt finds relief during tough stretch

Basketball can’t erase pain or automatically make things better. It can only partially alleviate bad things. But on Monday, Nate Britt got a little alleviation from basketball. It was much-needed. Britt changed shooting hands in the offseason from left to right. He struggled to gain confidence with his shot. After UNC’s win against N.C. State, Britt found out that his grandfather, Ned Britt, had died. (Greensboro News & Record)
