North Carolina beats Clemson 80-61

James Michael McAdoo scored 22 points to help North Carolina beat Clemson 80-61 on Sunday, keeping the Tigers winless all-time in Chapel Hill. Marcus Paige added 15 points for the Tar Heels (12-7, 2-4 ACC) in a dominating performance. North Carolina played with more energy and aggressiveness than during its recent struggles, shooting 55 percent for the game. (ESPN.com)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Clemson

That might be the most consistent 40 minutes of going hard to the rim that James Michael McAdoo has had in his Tar Heel career. McAdoo finished a strong 9-of-13 and earned ten trips to the free throw line, pairing that offensive production with seven rebounds. The fact that he did it against a Clemson team that had been extremely stingy defensively makes it even more impressive. (GoHeels.com)

Instant Analysis: North Carolina 80, Clemson 61

North Carolina dominated Clemson in an 80-61 win on Sunday in Chapel Hill. Here are some thoughts from UNC's win. North Carolina was more aggressive in almost every aspect of the game. The Tar Heels out-worked Clemson, out-shot Clemson and never let up. That last part is what will have UNC head coach Roy Williams excited. (Greensboro News & Record)

Clemson aims for 'next step' on road at UNC

There's a loss and then there's the losing streak, and Clemson coach Brad Brownell is more concerned about one than the other. Fifty-six times the Tigers have taken the floor against North Carolina in Chapel Hill, and 56 times they have come away with an "L." In fact, 15 of the last 16 matchups anywhere have resulted in a Tar Heels' win in the series. (Orange and White)

Preview: UNC-Clemson

A loss here drops UNC to 1-5 in ACC play and the season would officially be at risk of going down the NIT tubes. The Streak is a nice narrative for this game but the more immediate one is the current season. Clemson is the first of four games UNC really needs to win if there is any hope of pulling the ACC season out of the present nosedive. Prediction: UNC 74 Clemson 65 (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC vs. Clemson Preview

North Carolina might find it hard to score on Clemson, but the Tigers shouldn’t be lighting it up on their offensive end, either. That’s partly because – saving for Monday’s game against Virginia – UNC has been a tough defensive team this year. (Carolina Blue)

Tar Heels' home hex on Clemson could be in jeopardy

Coach Roy Williams doesn’t discuss with his North Carolina’s men’s basketball team the streak of success the Tar Heels have had held on Clemson in games in Chapel Hill. But they know. The Tigers are winless in 56 all-time visits for men’s basketball. From the North Carolina angle, that’s the longest streak of home victories against one opponent in NCAA history. (Burlington Times News)

Clemson looks to bounce back at UNC

In addition to the Tar Heels’ size, Clemson will have to contend with a few other factors on Sunday night, among them being the lack of experience playing in Chapel Hill. K.J. McDaniels and Rod Hall are the only players on Brownell’s roster that have played the 21,750-seat Smith Center. (CU Tigers)

Three to know: Clemson at North Carolina

North Carolina has had nearly a full week since Monday night’s 76-61 loss at Virginia, a defeat that sent the Tar Heels to only their second 1-4 start in ACC play. On Friday, Williams said he’s needed the practice time. When asked how much technical work he’s had to do – especially with the Tar Heels’ post-players – he said it’s been extensive. (Fayetteville Observer)

Kendall Marshall, Pau Gasol go way back

The Los Angeles Lakers experienced a reunion on a whole different level this season when they acquired Kendall Marshall from the D-League. Marshall, 22, met Pau Gasol more than a decade ago at the 2003 NBA All-Star weekend in Atlanta and he has the picture to prove it, sharing the photo of him and a clean-shaven Gasol on his Instagram account this week. (ESPN.com)

Quietly and steadily, Tyler Zeller doing all that Cavaliers ask him to do

Tyler Zeller is the kind of quiet, get-the-job-done player that Cleveland coach Mike Brown loves. He sets screens, fights for rebounds and follows all the rules the head coach demands. Perhaps the only thing limiting Zeller to 11.8 minutes per game is that he plays behind Anderson Varejao – the one player on the Cavaliers who epitomizes all that Brown asks. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

Raptors' Tyler Hansbrough has ankle bone bruise

Tyler Hansbrough is dealing with a bone bruise in his ankle, not the ankle sprain the media were first told when Hansbrough last played 12 games ago. Three weeks to heal an ankle sprain sounds like a lot, but a bone bruise is a different animal. “It’s very sensitive,” head coach Dwane Casey said. “He is working his behind off trying to get it right and he’s such a perfectionist." (Toronto Sun)
