    Roy Williams

    The question of whether or not Dean Smith held back Michael Jordan during the latter’s three seasons in Chapel Hill is one that came up on multiple occasions throughout Jordan’s career. If you read here, the question was asked way back in 1985 with Smith denying the allegation. “The NBA rules are ideal for Michael,”…

    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…
