Marcus Paige A Finalist For Cousy Award

North Carolina sophomore Marcus Paige is among 23 finalists for the 2014 Bob Cousy Award, given annually to the nation's top point guard. The original watch list of 80 candidates was narrowed down to the below list of 23 by a nationally based committee appointed by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. (GoHeels.com)

FSU vs North Carolina preview

The real difference is the defense. Roy's teams often get overlooked because of the tempo in which they play. Lazy journalists equate points allowed as bad defense, irregardless of how many possessions it took the opponent to score those points. This year UNC has the 12th best defense in the nation. They're solid across the board. (Tomahawk Nation)

James Michael McAdoo named ACC Player of the Week

James Michael McAdoo received ACC Player of the Week honors after his game highs of 24 points and 12 rebounds in Saturday’s 75-71 homecourt win over 25th-ranked Pittsburgh. The Norfolk, Va., native posted his fifth double-double of the season while connecting on 11 of 18 shots from the floor. He had seven offensive rebounds and just one turnover in 37 minutes.

Tallahassee Turn-Around

Following its sixth straight win Saturday afternoon over Pittsburgh North Carolina didn't have a whole lot of time at all to celebrate. That's because the Tar Heels are returning to the court Monday evening in Tallahassee's Donald L. Tucker Civic Center for another conference matchup, this one with Florida State. Tipoff is scheduled for approximately 7:00 pm. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Seminoles brace for challenge from UNC

The Florida State men's basketball team's comeback from a 16-point deficit to win at Wake Forest may have been even more significant than providing a desperate team with a much-needed win. It also gave the Seminoles just a little bit of positive momentum as they get set to host North Carolina (7 p.m., ESPN), which aside from its usual tradition also currently boasts one of the nation's hottest teams.

Lucas: Hicks Showing Progress

This isn't a case of cherry-picking Isaiah Hicks' best plays. During his first-half minutes, he found a way to contribute virtually every time down the court, even when some of those contributions didn't show up in the box score. Those quality plays eventually led to a highlight that everyone noticed, as he exploded to the rim on a one-handed dunk that gave Carolina a 29-27 lead. (GoHeels.com)

Planning for Success: McAdoo's decisions

To say James Michael McAdoo has improved this season doesn't take much of a leap. It's right there in his numbers: His offensive rating is 105.0; his true shooting is up from 47 percent to 50.3; his turnover rate is down to 11.1 percent. The only thing he isn't better at is free-throw shooting, but the sum of his improvements is clear. He's guarding better, too. It's a wholesale leap. (ESPN.com)

Thought of the week: Honoring McAdoo

James Michael McAdoo is building a strong case for ACC Player of the Year. That’s quite a statement considering the stretch in December when the Tar Heels junior forward seemed like the third-best player on his team. During North Carolina’s six-game winning streak, there has been no question who makes the team tick. That’s not to take away from what guard Marcus Paige has contributed. (ESPN.com)

Defining Sense of Urgency

Sense of Urgency. It’s a refrain heard over and over around the North Carolina basketball program. It was the culprit during the Tar Heels’ troubling losses in December and January. It’s the reason UNC overcame that slow start to get back into contention for a top-25 spot by mid-February. But, what exactly is this Sense of Urgency? Roy Williams insists it’s more than just playing hard. (Carolina Blue)

ACC Basketball Preview, Feb. 17

For the most part, it has seemed like FSU vs. UNC has come down to the Seminoles making a lot of shots AND not turning it over constantly, only to see UNC get hot as well AND get nearly half of its missed shots. Prediction: North Carolina, 72-66. This will be a close one, and it wouldn’t shock me if Florida State found a way to win. They need it, after all. (ACC Sports Journal)

Tar Heels Visit FSU On Monday

North Carolina (17-7, 7-4 ACC) takes its six-game winning streak on the road on Monday when it visits Florida State (15-10, 6-7) in Tallahassee, Fla. The Tar Heels and Seminoles will tip off just after 7 p.m. on Monday in the Tucker Center. ESPN will televise the game nationally with Sean McDonough (play-by-play), Jay Bilas (analyst) and Jeannine Edwards (sideline) on the broadcast. (GoHeels.com)

Preview: UNC at Florida State

UNC heads to Tallahassee for the fourth time in six regular-season games looking to extend the current winning streak to seven games before facing Duke on Thursday. The Heels will be playing for the second time in three days, having won a tough game against Pitt on Saturday. The Seminoles played in Winston-Salem on Saturday and beat the Demon Deacons 67-60. Prediction: FSU 75 UNC 70 (Tar Heel Blog)

Surging Heels roll into Tallahassee

Florida State has a very slim chance of making the NCAA tournament but they are a scrappy bunch that won't lie over easily. The Seminoles had to overcome a 16-point deficit to Wake Forest on Sunday en route to a 67-60 win over the Demon Deacons. (Tar Heel Illustrated)
