Dayton at UNC

Where: Dean Smith Center, Chapel Hill, NC When: December 31st, 3:00 PM TV: Fox Sports Net Records: UNC 11-1, Dayton 10-2

Oh yeah…another game against a school who is probably totall disinterested in running with UNC.  On the other hand Dayton is 10-2 but one of those losses was a 30 point drubbing from Pittsburgh.  [...]

Five Questions About the ACC

As the year ends, we are now almost two months into the basketball season and on the cusp of the conference season being the bulk of the schedule going forward.  Having seen the 12 ACC schools play we can obviously start asking serious questions about each team and consider whether or not the things we [...]

ACC Basketball Update(12/29)

In case you didn’t know it there were other games being played besides the one Texas Tech was in.

Boston College continues to be a total enigma losing to Duquesne of all people 98-93.  Duquesne presently has a losing record which included a seven game losing streak.  So the only thing we know about BC [...]

UNC 87 Rutgers 48

Now that’s what I am talking about.

Several things I saw tonight which seems to show that this team may have arrived at the level we all expected them to be when the season started. Ty Lawson racked up nine assists with zero turnovers which included an incredible bounce pass over his head while laying [...]

Considering the All Time Wins Record

Obviously many Tar Heel fans have a vested in interest in Dean Smith’s record being broken by Bobby Knight. My own personal opinion is that it was inevitable the record would be passed and as time passed Dean would be relegated further down the list. So getting to terribly upset over the record being broken [...]

Rutgers at UNC

Where: Dean Smith Center, Chapel Hill, NC When: December 28th, 7:00 PM TV: ESPN2 Records: UNC 10-1, Rutgers 6-5

According to the News and Observer, Bobby Frasor’s foot is the biggest storyline here as UNC should easily handle the Scarlet Knights.  My question is how long will Frasor stay out and at what point is [...]

THF Top Five Stories of 2006

Yes, I really like those end of year lists. It also nice to sit back and take stock of the year that was and how I covered it as a Tar Heel fan living in North Carolina. So without further ado here are Tar Heel Fan’s top five stories.

#5. J.J. Redick and Duke favored [...]

ACC Bowl Preview

Emerald Bowl: Florida State vs. UCLA December 27th, 8:00 PM, ESPN

This may constitute the earliest FSU has played a bowl game since I have been paying attention to such things.  FSU limps in following a 30-0 trouncing at home to the eventual ACC champion Wake Forest and a tough loss to Florida.  UCLA played [...]

ACC Basketball Update(12/26)

Yeah I was too busy eating Christmas cookies and turkey to get this out earlier…


Clemson is 12-0 after smacking Western Carolina 103-60.  I am not sure what to make of the Tigers.  The diet so far has been fairly sweet but the 43 point win over a lower-middle tier school does cause you [...]

ACC Basketball Update(12/23)


The game of the night was Duke playing Gonzaga in New York.  The Devils “gutted” out another win 61-54 and I cannot tell you how tired I am of hearing that.  The Bulldogs who lit UNC up were not as good against Duke and I really cannot decide whether that has to do with [...]

UNC 69 St. Louis 48

If the current string of games are meant to be build blocks for the meat of the season then this one was a perfect one for the Heels to play and win.  UNC struggled shooting the ball in the first half shooting 29% only leading by one at the break before coming back in the [...]
