    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,”…

  4. Second-half defensive adjustments, Marcus Paige lead North Carolina past No. 5 Duke

    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…

    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…

  7. No. 2 Syracuse’s zone stifles North Carolina’s offense for an easy win

    Jan 11, 2014, 2:05 PM EDT

    North Carolina v Syracuse

    On paper, it appeared that unbeaten No. 2 Syracuse would have a huge advantage over North Carolina during Saturday’s ACC contest because of the Orange’s signature 2-3 zone going against a perimeter-scoring-starved Tar Heel team. But could you really count out North Carolina after wins over Michigan State, Louisville and Kentucky earlier this season? But…

    williams

    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…

    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…

    Belmont v North Carolina

    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…

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Kansas v North Carolina

    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…

    What kind of punishment PJ Hairston receives for an offseason’s worth of troubling headlines, run-ins with the law and one reported association with a convicted felon with a penchant for renting nice cars, but what’s clear at this point is that North Carolina will have their leading returning scorer back on the team in 2013-2014.…

    PJ Hairston

    The assumption within the North Carolina program seems to be that embattled guard PJ Hairston will miss some time this season, but that it’s a virtual certainty that he will play this season. UNC AD Bubba Cunningham said as much to a group of journalism professors earlier this month. And now, for the first time…

    Monday, New Hampton forward Noah Vonleh didn’t shock many when he decided to reclassify and join the class of 2013.

Vonleh holds offers from Arizona, UConn, Boston College, Kansas, Ohio…
