Roy Williams, former ACC players remember Obama the basketball player

It’s no secret: Former President Barack Obama is a fan of the Tar Heels. His official March Madness brackets often favor UNC, and then-candidate Obama famously stopped by Chapel Hill in 2008 for a pickup game..Less well-known is that the admiration is mutual, at least for UNC Coach Roy Williams.

Know Your Opponent: Boston College

A pair of North Carolina natives fuel the BC offense. Raleigh sophomore Jerome Robinson leads the team in scoring at 19.7 points per game and has been one of the ACC's most prolific shooters.

Offseason work paying off for Meeks

The offseason for most college basketball players usually involves a myriad of goals. Working out to make sure breakfast stays down come preseason conditioning. Mastering a new post move or adding a mid-range jumper to their game. Rehabbing a pesky, chronic injury. Learning the playbook. Avoiding too many late night stops at McDonald’s. Kennedy Meeks can attest to all of this. (Carolina Blue)

Reggie Bullock 'setting an example' for Detroit Pistons by cutting to hoop

Matt Barnes was the veteran who took Reggie Bullock under his wing when Bullock was a rookie with the Los Angeles Clippers during the 2013-14 season. And Bullock picked up something useful. Barnes is great at surprise cuts to the hoop for easy baskets. (Detroit Free Press)

Roy Williams on Barack Obama and Ball

Roy on Obama's "basketball body":"Pardon the phrase because we're talking about the President of the United States, but my man doesn't have the greatest basketball body. Let's just be honest about this. But he reminded me a little bit of the old school Lenny Wilkens. I think that would make him feel good if I said that. A little bit of a sneaky game. He knows how to play." (Carolina Blue)

SI Power Rankings: Handicapping the national title race at the midway point

4. North Carolina Tar Heels: The deep tourney experience argument applies again here. Most of the rotation has been part of multiple runs, and it’s hard for me to envision junior Joel Berry II—one of the best big-game point guards—not having another string of great performances that gives North Carolina a shot at a title. (Sports Illustrated)

Roy Williams Has Surging Tar Heels Respecting BC

The Tar Heels enter Saturday's game against Boston College having won five consecutive ACC games after losing the league opener at Georgia Tech and stand at 17-3 overall. Boston College, on the other hand, is improved from a year ago but is still just 9-10 overall and 2-4 in the ACC. Guarding against overconfidence is something that Roy Williams must deal with. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Turner's Take: Road Wild

The Tar Heels have half of their remaining games on the road. They'll hop into the fast lane Saturday at Boston College before traveling to Miami for a January 28 bash at the beach. February 9, Duke will be looking for payback from last year's season finale, and six days later the Wolfpack will attempt a backlash for UNC's 51-point win on January 8. (GoHeels.com)
