Louisville's postseason ban has UNC's Roy Williams thinking about past, present

The NCAA has provided no resolution to the long-running academic scandal at North Carolina, but UNC basketball coach Roy Williams reacted to news of Louisville’s postseason ban by saying sympathetically, “I’ve been there.” Louisville administrators announced a self-imposed penalty for its basketball program Friday.

Tar Heels Look To Break Out Of Slump Once Again

For the first time since losing in the ACC Championship Game in March, the Tar Heels will take on Notre Dame.

Marcus Ginyard’s Diary: Short Vacations In Copenhagen And Barcelona, And A Visit With Deon Thompson

In the spring of 2000, I first had my opportunity to travel abroad, ironically, to the place that I now call home. My visit to France as a young teenager was an experience I will never forget. It was absolutely incredible to see and experience a world that I hardly knew existed. Since then I have been extremely fortunate to travel around the world (22 countries in 5 years), coming across many things that have completely changed my life. (Chapelboro.com)

UNC Basketball: Shooting Is Not the Only Problem

Lucas: Slumps Happen

You might think Hubert Davis is unfamiliar with Carolina’s current shooting struggles, in which the five primary UNC three-point shooters are hitting just 25% from the three-point line over the last dozen games. You’d think wrong. “I’ve told them I had slumps like that all throughout my career when I was playing,” Davis told Jones Angell on the weekly radio show. (GoHeels.com)

Midseason Review: Joel James

Carolina's biggest man has been a solid go to guy off the bench to provide a quick change of pace. He also gives Roy Williams a steady and experienced option when Kennedy Meeks and Brice Johnson need a breather. Joel James has contributed more than his stat line shows. The 6-10 forward has had double digits minutes in 11 games so far this season. (Carolina Blue)

Tar Heels Look To Rebound At Notre Dame

UNC's 11-win season resonates on signing day

This time a year ago, football coaches at North Carolina were selling hope. After an 11-3 season, a massive defensive turnaround and an ACC Coastal Division title, the Tar Heels have something concrete to pitch to recruits. The effects of that upswing already could be felt on Wednesday, national signing day for college football. (Greensboro News & Record)

Tyler Zeller focused on staying in Celtics rotation

From Day One starter, to reserve, to seldom-used backup, to situational player logging several weeks of DNP-CDs (did not play-coaches decision). There isn’t a single role that Tyler Zeller hasn’t experienced being in this season for the Boston Celtics. That’s in part why he is cautiously optimistic about his play of late. (CSN New England)
