ACC Barnstorming Tour stops in New Bern

It was an ACC basketball fans paradise at Epiphany School in New Bern on Friday as seniors from our state's biggest colleges stormed into town. From Michael Jordan to Tyler Hansbrough, all the greats participate in the ACC Barnstorming Tour. Back in the day, Eastern North Carolina native Phil Ford even took part in the event. Tonight he was back, this time as a coach. (WNCT)

Season In Review: James, Simmons, Hubert

In the latest installment of our season in review series, we look back at the 2013-14 seasons for Joel James, Jackson Simmons and Desmond Hubert. According to Roy Williams, Hubert has evolved into Carolina's best post defender. Most of those contributions came during conference play, but he did give the Tar Heels a solid six minutes in the Kentucky win. (GoHeels.com)

Williams, Fedora paired with Spurrier, Sharpe for Chick-fil-A golf event

A battle of the Carolinas will be part of this year's Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge golf event Tuesday in Greensboro, Ga. South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier and Gamecocks receiving legend Sterling Sharpe are paired with North Carolina football coach Larry Fedora and basketball coach Roy Williams. The four played together in the 2012 event. (GoGamecocks.com)

Tar Heels the early ACC basketball favorite

Like last year, there seems to be a clear distinction in talent between about the top four or five teams and everyone else in the league. And while to me it’s very close among those top few, I’ll take the Tar Heels as the slight early favorite. UNC loses only James Michael McAdoo and Leslie McDonald and fills their spots with one of the nation’s top recruiting classes. (Morganton News Herald)

Video: UNC Coaches Dance to "Happy"

UNC Coaches made a music video to Pharrell Williams "Happy". Originally aired at the 2014 Rammy's on April 14, 2014. View Video...

Woody Durham: "I'm Just Saying"

The headline in itself is an overused phrase, but not unlike familiar phrases used frequently, especially during a basketball season such as the most recent campaign. I haven't looked it up, but this year's NCAA Tournament had to be one of the most competitive on record. Nearly one-third of the games were decided by five points or fewer, two of which were played by Carolina in San Antonio. (GoHeels.com)

North Carolina's 2014-15 ACC basketball opponents

Should North Carolina win the ACC next season, it probably won’t be criticized -- as Virginia was this season -- for catching a break in the schedule. Duke and Louisville are two of the four teams Carolina will play both at home and on the road. The Tar Heels should be a contender for their first regular season ACC title since 2011-12. (ESPN.com)

Carolina Basketball Braces For Brutal Gauntlet Next Season

This is your new-look ACC, and get used to it. The Tar Heels will only face two members of the original ACC in their 2014-2015 home Smith Center slate. Let that sink in. UNC will face a daunting slate of games next season, including home and away games against new member and perennial powerhouse Louisville, as well as Duke, NC State and Georgia Tech.

Tar Heels In The NBA Update

Throughout his NBA career Vince Carter was the star of the team he played for, but with this year's Dallas Mavericks team the former Tar Heel had to get used to coming off the bench. Carter performed well in his new role by averaging just under 12 points a game. Dallas will need Carter to be a huge contributor if they are to pull of the upset of the top seeded San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference playoffs. (GoHeels.com)

Video: North Carolina ACC Basketball Matchups

The ACC Digital Network announces North Carolina's conference basketball opponents for each of the next two seasons. What does the future hold for Roy Williams and the Tar Heels? Host Jeff Fischel has the details. View Video...

Lucas: ACC Schedule Reactions

Forget everything you knew about the ACC basketball schedule. As the conference grew in membership and also added two additional league games, the schedules for the previous two years had to be juggled. This year's slate, however, is the first year of a 12-year schedule rotation that will feature two permanent partners along with a mix of one-time home and road foes and two additional home-and-home series.

ACC Releases Men’s Basketball Conference Matchups for 2014-15 and 2015-16

The Atlantic Coast Conference has announced the 18-game conference matchups for each of its 15 men’s basketball teams for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons. The matchups released today designate the 18-game home and away opponents for each of the next two seasons. Specific game dates, times and networks have not yet been determined. (The ACC)

Wade Moody gets warm reception in ACC Barnstorming homecoming

Wade Moody most likely never got a warm reception at East Surry during his high school playing days. He sure did Thursday night. Moody, who played basketball at county rival Mount Airy, was in Pilot Mountain for the ACC Barnstorming Tour. The senior guard at North Carolina was a member of the team of ACC All-Stars that took on the Surry County All-Stars. (Mount Airy News)

North Carolina season wrap

The progress Brice Johnson and Kennedy Meeks showed at times this season provides some promise. Marcus Paige will be back, which means the Tar Heels won't have to ask as much of their freshmen. This could be the ACC's preseason favorites next fall. If nothing else, UNC should have a decent idea what its roster will look like well before the season starts. That's a luxury it didn't enjoy this year. (Syracuse.com)

In Harrison Barnes, Warriors may have modest superhero

When the Warriors call Harrison Barnes Black Falcon, it's in fun, not reverence. Really, a better fit for Barnes would be the Mystery Falcon, because you never know when he'll show up to save the day. It's a superhero nickname, and based on Barnes' playoff performance last season and in Saturday's Game 1 win over the Clippers, he has a mysterious ability to raise his game when the heat is on.
