Different site, but same concerns for Tar Heels

Instead of having already played Saturday night at the Smith Center, the teams will meet Sunday afternoon at the Greensboro Coliseum because of the water emergency that closed the Chapel Hill campus. So this adds another chapter in a rather compelling recent games between the teams. (Burlington Times-News)

Know Your Opponent: Notre Dame

With Zach Auguste now playing professionally in Turkey and Demetrius Jackson in the NBDL after leaving South Bend early, the upperclassman quartet of V.J. Beachem, Steve Vasturia, Bonzie Colson and Matt Farrell are sharing top billing for the Irish. Despite being just 6-5, Colson is Notre Dame's only real interior threat. And what a threat he is.

Unique road situation awaits No. 20 Notre Dame men in Greensboro

Instead of traveling Friday evening, Notre Dame remained in Northern Indiana before an early-afternoon flight Saturday. The Irish practiced Saturday afternoon at UNC-Greensboro.

Greensboro Coliseum prepares for upcoming UNC-Notre Dame game

Up to 22,000 people could be at the Greensboro Coliseum Sunday for the UNC vs. Notre Dame basketball game. On Friday, a major water crisis in the Chapel Hill area caused the game to be moved.

In bit of foreshadowing, Harrison Barnes had already walked us through pass he’d make against Spurs

Harrison Barnes is clearly a smart guy, but the play he made in Sunday’s win against San Antonio makes him look even more intelligent — because he essentially called it last week. First, here’s the play I’m talking about. (Dallas Mavericks)

UNC Basketball Ready For Irish In Greensboro Sunday

5 ACC storylines to watch in February

Will UNC work out its kinks? A week ago, North Carolina looked like the sturdiest team in the ACC. With his team finally healthy and riding a string of dominant wins, it seemed as though Roy Williams' critiques of his team were just done for effect. But with Theo Pinson out and the Tar Heels losing at Miami and nearly losing at home to Pittsburgh, Williams might have a point. (Fayetteville Observer)

UNC-Notre Dame Game Moved To 1 P.M. Sunday In Greensboro

Coliseum due to an emergency water crisis in Orange County, Chapel Hill and the UNC campus. The UNC-Notre Dame game was scheduled for 6 p.m. on Saturday. (GoHeels.com)

What’s Happened to the UNC Defense?

To examine what’s changed on the defensive end for UNC from the non-conference portion of the schedule to the ACC portion, let’s look at a couple of defensive charting summary tables. The first shows charting stats for only the 14 non-conference games. The second summarizes the same stats for the 10 ACC games that the Heels have played so far. (The Secondary Break)

UNC's Hicks leaves them wanting more

It’s not Isaiah Hicks’ fault that he looks so darn good in a basketball uniform. The 6-9, 242-pound senior forward from Oxford has the perfect balance of strength and athleticism. He has both the muscle to do battle with the beefy guys in the shadow of the basket and the springs in his legs to run and jump with the tall, thin greyhounds on the perimeter. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Report: UNC-Notre Dame basketball game will not be played as scheduled

Notre Dame was supposed to travel Friday afternoon to Chapel Hill, N.C., for Saturday’s ACC game with UNC.

There will be no basketball game Saturday in Chapel Hill with no word yet early Friday evening when or if the game can be rescheduled. (South Bend Tribune)
