Marcus Paige Relishing Opportunity with Charlotte Hornets

Former North Carolina Tar Heels star Marcus Paige is aiming to make the most of his NBA opportunity with the Charlotte Hornets. Paige is signed to a two-way agreement with the Charlotte Hornets.

Luke Maye on National Championship, Fame

Luke Maye spent most of the 2016-2017 season coming off the bench, but his game-winning shot against Kentucky in the Elite Eight thrust him into a seemingly never-ending spotlight. On UNC's in-house Carolina Insider podcast with Jones Angell and Adam Lucas, the junior discussed the fame and celebration that came with making the big shot. (Inside Carolina)

Tar Heels celebrate title amid removal of NCAA burden

Standing there near midcourt at the Smith Center, eyes fixed toward the ceiling and the spotlighted corner where national titles are displayed in this building, juniors Luke Maye and Kenny Williams said tears were difficult to contain for veteran players, particularly senior guard Joel Berry, as the Tar Heels’ newest addition joined their banner collection Friday night.

Reggie Bullock has Pistons excited about the possibilities

Reggie Bullock shoots well, he is the Detroit Pistons' best cutter, his defensive intensity has increased and he provides energy off the bench. It's a resume that suggests Bullock not only should be in the Pistons' rotation but should play a key role. Coach Stan Van Gundy has been pleased with Bullock's play through camp and two preseason games. (MLive.com)

Jerry Stackhouse’s Journey From The NBA To Becoming A G-League Champion Coach

Jerry Stackhouse, only four years removed from his NBA playing days, transitioned from player to Raptors assistant to head coach in the D-League in remarkable time, but he proved in 2016-17 that he was doing so on his own merits and not simply trading on his name recognition. His journey to the coach’s chair started towards the end of his tenure in Dallas (Uproxx)

Interview with director of Vince Carter documentary

I grew up just outside of the city of Toronto, about 45 minutes away I was pretty young when the Raptors first got in, in ’95. I was, like, eight or nine years old. Then it took Vince Carter coming along to get the attention of me and my friends. It shifted from us talking about hockey or baseball to all of a sudden everyone was drawn towards, ‘Oh, did you catch that game last night?’ (SLAM Online)

UNC Unveils 2017 National Championship Banner

UNC unveiled its 2017 national championship banner at the Smith Center on Friday during Late Night With Roy.

Difficult road back finally complete for UNC’s Kenny Williams

It didn’t matter that Kenny Williams’ shot wasn’t quite back Friday during the Late Night With Roy scrimmage. He was back and feeling at full strength again. He eventually came to terms with only being able to watch and cheer on his UNC teammates from the bench during their run to the national championship after having surgery on the torn meniscus in his right knee.

Late Night Notebook

Joel Berry II was on the verge of tears. At least that's what it looked like to Luke Maye on Friday night at the Smith Center, where the men's basketball team unveiled the 2017 NCAA championship banner at Late Night with Roy, shortly after a video montage. "We were all a little emotional," Maye said. Here are a few notes from Friday's festivities, hosted by Kenny Smith. (GoHeels.com)

UNC Basketball Players Comment on NCAA Resolution

In what became an odd coincidence, the NCAA's decision on North Carolina's case and Late Night with Roy were held on the same day.

UNC hangs banner at March Madness; Louisville keeps it subdued

North Carolina unveiled its 2017 NCAA championship banner during its annual "Late Night With Roy" event filled with jokes, dancing and a public scrimmage. It was part of a busy schedule that included Kentucky's "Big Blue Madness" as well as events at Louisville, Florida State, Georgetown and Iowa State among others in what amounts to a ceremonial start to the season.

Lucas: A Banner Day

Whoever said Friday the 13th had bad mojo has clearly never met Friday, October 13, 2017. If we ever have to live one single day over and over again, can it be this one? Luke Maye's shot will always go in, and Roy Williams will always be proven loudly and emphatically right, and seven national championship banners will always look a little more filling than six.

On the Pageantry of Late Night with Roy

What attracts so many people of all different types to Late Night with Roy? Is it the chance to get the first look at this year’s basketball team? Is it the free admission? True, on each of those points, we love our men’s basketball and the chance to watch them for no charge. But the Xs and Os don’t explain the 19,000 plus that showed up on a Friday night.
