Ranking the ACC/Big Ten Challenge games

2. Iowa at North Carolina: The Hawkeyes and Tar Heels both want to run early and often. UNC will be a much more athletic team than it was last season with the addition of freshmen Joel Berry, Theo Pinson and Justin Jackson. The game could offer a small bit of redemption for guard Marcus Paige, who is a Marion, Iowa, native, after the Heels were bounced by Iowa State in the NCAA tournament. (ESPN.com)

Tar Heels To Face Iowa In ACC/Big Ten Challenge

ESPN announced the pairings on Thursday as part of an expanded format of 14 games and the debut of Louisville in the ACC and Maryland and Rutgers as members of the Big Ten. (GoHeels.com)

Season In Review: Brice Johnson

Brice Johnson was one of the few post bright spots in the ACC Tournament loss to Pittsburgh, as he shot 8-for-9 from the field on his way to a 16-point, six-rebound performance. He followed that up with an excellent outing against Providence in the NCAA Tournament, scoring 16 more points to go with eight rebounds and four blocked shots in the win over the Friars.

Jerry Stackhouse on Donald Sterling’s lifetime ban: ‘I was shocked, but I was pleased’

Former NBA forward Jerry Stackhouse was pleasantly surprised when Commissioner Adam Silver banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life over his racist remarks that were made public last Saturday. “I was actually shocked.

College Basketball Talk’s Way-Too Early Top 25, Volume Two

6. North Carolina: James Michael McAdoo is gone, but Marcus Paige is returning to school, which is good news.

Lucas: Marcus Paige Looks Ahead

Odds and Ends: Man It's Quiet Around Here Edition

If you were wondering what the real reason for James Michael McAdoo's decision to turn pro, it may be because he got married. McAdoo tied the knot with UNC volleyball player Lauren Adkins on April 2nd which was a Wednesday and the day before his NBA Draft entry announcement. Adkins, whose Twitter account now reflects her married name, is a junior outside hitter. (Tar Heel Blog)

NCAA Basketball: 2014-15 Preseason Top 25 (and one) national rankings

The deadline for underclassmen to enter the NBA Draft expired late Sunday, meaning we now have a decent idea of how each school's roster will look next season. Sure, high school star Myles Turner still has to pick a school (Texas is widely considered the favorite), some notable transfers must still settle on new homes, and there are always academic casualties and dismissals that affect rosters in unpredictable ways. (CBS Sports)

Marcus Paige Coming Back for More

While various NBA decisions have been announced by press conferences or releases, Marcus Paige announced his return indirectly with a tweet last month referencing offseason improvement and the potential for a special junior season. Fourteen minutes after that tweet, Paige responded to incoming Tar Heel Theo Pinson on the social media tool by saying that he “never even thought of leaving.” (Inside Carolina)

Lucas: Marcus Paige Looks Back

The bitter ending to his second season at Carolina left Marcus Paige uninterested in watching much of the remainder of the Tournament. He watched the Final Four, but actively avoided any of the other games from UNC's regional. "The whole experience," he says, "is fuel for going to Indianapolis next year." Oh yes, Paige is well aware of the location of the 2015 Final Four. (GoHeels.com)
