Race to March Madness: 20 games left in the season you won't want to miss

Louisville at North Carolina (Wed., Feb. 22): UNC's remaining schedule is ridiculous. I could've easily put four UNC games on this list. This one will be really entertaining, and UNC will be in the midst of trying to get a 1 seed while keeping grip on the ACC standings. The Tar Heels' schedule sets up to where UNC could be anything from a 1 to a 4 come Selection Sunday. (CBS Sports)

UNC's Isaiah Hicks Questionable for NC State Game

On Monday's ACC teleconference North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams was not able to provide much clarity on Isaiah Hicks' hamstring injury and his status for Wednesday's game against N.C. State. “We still don’t know if he’s going to play against North Carolina State," Williams said. Hicks has been limited in practice and has not been doing any full-court work. (Carolina Blue)

Which UNC players have played their ways into the NBA first-round conversation?

As UNC gears up for the home stretch, the last thing on Roy Williams’ mind is what his underclassmen will do after the season. Fans, however, can’t help but ponder the potential makeup of the 2017-18 Tar Heels. What happens with UNC’s top two scorers — juniors Justin Jackson and Joel Berry — will shape opinion on the Tar Heels’ preseason prospects. (ACC Sports Journal)

UNC Basketball Drops to No. 10 in Latest AP Top 25

After suffering a bitter loss at Cameron Indoor Stadium against Duke this past week, UNC fell from No. 8 to No. 10 in the most recent AP Top 25 college basketball poll released on Monday. The Tar Heels (21-5, 9-3) remain at the top of the ACC standings, however, holding a half-game lead over No. 17 Florida State. At No. 8, Louisville is the highest ranked ACC school. (Chapelboro.com)

UNC Basketball’s ACC Rotation and Plus/Minus

With North Carolina two-thirds of the way through its ACC schedule, let’s check out how the different lineup combinations are shaping up. As usual, small sample size caveats are in effect for the plus-minus numbers. In terms of describing how the Tar Heels’ conference rotations have looked (and performed) so far, though, it can be a helpful exercise. (The Secondary Break)

Four Corners: Heading To Raleigh

The Tar Heels had a weekend off. Carolina did not practice as a team on Friday and will not practice on Monday, either, hoping to rest and heal some nagging injuries. The team will prepare in earnest on Tuesday for the game at NC State. UNC will play the Wolfpack at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, needing a win with six tough games left in the regular season. (GoHeels.com)

King Rice's 100th win a byproduct of recruiting, belief at Monmouth

Long-term potential and strong academics is what got King Rice that 3-year extension at Monmouth. On Friday, the sixth-year head coach got his 100th career win in his 190th game at Monmouth. Afterwards, he did two things he has done a lot. He reflected on those early days when the Hawks did far more losing than winning, and he heaped praise on everyone but himself. (Asbury Park Press)

History: Tar Heels Respond Well After Losing To Duke

For UNC fans, losing to Duke seems like the end of the world, for a while, anyway. But history suggests that the Tar Heels themselves don’t view things through a similar lens, at least if their past post-Duke performances are an indication. In the Roy Williams era, the Tar Heels have lost their first meeting with Duke 11 times. But they've responded well just about every time. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

The Emergence of Seventh Woods

One clear bright spot in Thursday night’s loss to Duke was the play of Seventh Woods. In an extended (6:33) first-half stint, he made a profound impact on the game. After a wild start to the season (which included pops of brilliance splattered on a canvas of recklessness), Woods has demonstrated much better decision-making since ACC play has begun. (The Secondary Break)

Duke vs. UNC: Tobacco Road showdown still has edge on all sports rivalries

Is Duke vs. UNC still the best rivalry in all of sports? No. 8 North Carolina (21-5, 9-3 ACC) and No. 18 Duke (19-5, 7-4 ACC) renewed their classic rivalry Thursday with the Blue Devils taking another thrilling win, 86-78, at Cameron Indoor Stadium. The superlatives are still there. It's Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski vs. North Carolina's Roy Williams. (Sporting News)

Video: Kendall Marshall dishes out 19 assists for Reno Bighorns

Harrison Barnes continues to grow into role as Mavs’ go-to scorer down stretch

What does it take to be a go-to scorer? Harrison Barnes is learning the answer to that question on the fly. Leading the Dallas Mavericks to a comeback 112-105 overtime win over the Utah Jazz after trailing by as many as 21, the 24-year-old Barnes seemingly put his team on his back down the stretch Thursday night while scoring eight of his 31 points during the extra period. (Dallas Mavericks)

Clippers' Raymond Felton keeps battling through aches and pain

His body is beat up from top to bottom, but Raymond Felton has refused to sit out a game for the Clippers. Felton has a sore right shoulder that he wears a small pad on for protection. He has a sore thigh that has forced him to wear extra padding beneath his game shorts for body protection. (Los Angeles Times)

The NCAA Tournament selection committee released their top four seeds and top 16 teams on Saturday afternoon. This is the first time in NCAA Tournament history that the selection committee has done an in-season sneak peak into the selection process and top seeds. North Carolina comes in as the No. 5 overall seed and a No. 2 seed in the South Regional. (Carolina Blue)
