PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Marcus Smart, Oklahoma State Marcus Smart is back. After playing about as poorly as he possibly could for 30 minutes on Saturday night, Marcus Smart turned in as dominating of a performance as you will see to close out Oklahoma State’s season-changing win over No. 5 Kansas. Smart scored 12 of…

A relatively boring first half of basketball turned into the Marcus Paige and T.J. Warren show down the stretch. Warren scored 26 of his 36 points after halftime, but he was bested by Paige, who netted 29 of his 33 points after the break, including a layup with 0.9 seconds left in overtime as the…

Through one half of basketball North Carolina trailed No. 5 Duke 37-30, with the Blue Devils shooting 50% from the field and scoring 26 points in the paint. Between those defensive issues and the fact that leading scorer Marcus Paige failed to score a single point, it was clear what needed to occur in order…

North Carolina continues to compile wins in the ACC as the Tar Heels won 81-75 on Monday in a road win at Florida State. Despite zero points in about 13 minutes from junior James Michael McAdoo, the Tar Heels (18-7, 8-4) still took their first lead with ten minutes left in the game and held…

I love stories like this. Marcus Paige, Leslie McDonald and the North Carolina basketball team treated a 12-year old fan named Anthony Hernandez who suffers from Emery Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy to a day he’ll probably never forget. Here’s the background, via One Carolina: Earlier this school year, Anthony drew a picture for his teacher —…

North Carolina is quietly surging and playing very good basketball as they’re now 16-7 and 6-4 in the ACC after its 73-62 win at Notre Dame on Saturday. The Tar Heels started out slowly in the ACC at 0-3 but have now won six of seven games entering a week at home against Duke and…

North Carolina had a brutal start to ACC play. They lost four of their first five games, and they weren’t good losses, either. At Wake Forest. At home to Miami. Beatdowns at the hands Syracuse and Virginia. This was a team that beat all three of the nation’s preseason top three teams? Well, the Tar…

The 2013-14 season seems to have taken on a consistent pattern for No. 19 North Carolina: get up for, and beat, some of the nation’s best teams while suffering losses that make us wonder who they are and what they’re capable of. The latest piece of evidence to support this was their 73-67 loss at…

North Carolina sophomore wing J.P. Tokoto has shown signs of improvement this season, raising both his scoring (9.6 ppg entering Saturday) and rebounding (4.8 rpg) averages from a season ago. Part of that has come with an increased number of opportunities, as Reggie Bullock’s now a Los Angeles Clipper and P.J. Hairston’s no longer a…

At this point in the season it seems safe to say that North Carolina has just one consistent perimeter shooter in sophomore point guard Marcus Paige. Entering Wednesday’s game at No. 1 Michigan State, Paige was responsible for 18 of the Tar Heels’ 21 made three-pointers. And with Paige also being their best overall perimeter…

There’s a lot to be concerned about if you’re a North Carolina basketball fan right now. For starters, they just lost at home to Belmont. As good as the Bruins have been in recent seasons, they are still a team that just won their first game against a top 25 opponent in a decade and…

North Carolina had no problem disposing of Oakland in their season-opening game against Oakland, beating the Golden Grizzlies 84-61 without the services of P.J. Hairston and Leslie McDonald. Against Holy Cross, however, that was hardly the case as North Carolina had to fight their way to a 62-54 victory. The Crusaders, who finished 12-18 a…
