How the First Round Picks Fared Against UNC

As I was watching the NBA Draft last night I noticed there were eight players who went up against UNC this past season at one point or another. Four players faced UNC twice during ACC play. Two players faced the Heels in the NCAA Tournament and two others played against UNC in one non-conference match-up:

Wright Traded to Golden State; Terry Traded to Dallas[UPDATED]

So this is how it all shook out. Brandan Wright was initially drafted by Charlotte but by the end of the evening he was traded to Golden State which is probably fine for Wright given the up-tempo style they play. The problem with the trade from the Charlotte side is, according 850′s blog, Richardson is [...]

Wright to Charlotte; Terry Still Waiting(Live Blog!)

Okay, I have NBA Live 2006 on my PC and the first thing I did was takeover the Charlotte Bobcats and trade all the players until I assembled a starting lineup which included Raymond Felton, Sean May, Rasheed Wallace, Marvin Williams and a custom player using my name. Michael Jordan is doing the same thing [...]

ESPN.com Doesn’t Like Brandan Wright

If you have read any draft coverage on ESPN.com you quickly realize that alleged NBA Draft guru Chad Ford as well as Bill Simmons do not like Brandan Wright as witnessed by the following quip in yesterday’s Interactive Mock Draft(which I refuse to link per policy):


Chad Ford selects: Brandan Wright, [...]

But What About Reyshawn Terry?

I just realized that I have been far too Brandan Wright focused here. There is another Tar Heel in this draft in the person of Reyshawn Terry who impressed some folks at Orlando. From David Glenn:

He joined Dudley as a top performer in Orlando, showcasing his versatile offensive game of 3-pointers, mid-range jumpers and [...]

Penn Senior Rates Brandan Wright

The New York Times enlisted the help of former Penn basketball player Steve Danley to evaluate some of the draft picks ahead of the NBA Draft on Thursday. Here is what he had to say about Brandan Wright:

BRANDAN WRIGHT, FORWARD, NORTH CAROLINA Forecasting Wright’s career is a tough call. He has the talent to [...]

Nice to See It Rates So Highly

Being a UNC fan and by nature a huge college basketball fan there are few things finer than Duke-UNC or watching either the ACC or NCAA Tournament.  Apparently ESPN.com Page 2 columnist Jim Caple agrees with this assertion as he ranks 101 things all sports fans must experience before they die. Here are the relevant [...]

I’ve Been Drafted!!!

Well, sort of.  It looks like I was taken by the New Jersey Nets at #17 in the Winning the Turnover Battle Blogger Draft in an attempt to keep UNC alum Vince Carter happy to he will re-sign with the team:

#17. New Jersey Nets: Tar Heel Fan of Tar Heel Fan The Nets are [...]

Never To Early To Think About Hoops

At least not for ACC Now. Of course all this does is make me itch for the start of the season to happen next week instead of in November. Caulton Tudor and JP Giglio offer up their opinions on player and team rankings. Here is the capsule for UNC who they pick to finish 1st [...]

CWS Finals Game 2: OSU 9 #3 UNC 3

You cannot win if you cannot get hits with runners in scoring position.

It was not meant to be.  A real shame to make it this far two years in a row and not win the title at least once.

CWS Finals Game 2: #3 UNC vs Oregon State

When: Sunday, June 24th, 7:00 PM EDT Where: Rosenblatt Stadium, Omaha, NE TV/Radio: ESPN2, 850 AM(Raleigh/Durham), 1360 AM(Chapel Hill) Records: UNC 57-15; Oregon State 48-18

Once again it is up to Luke Putkonen to bail UNC’s collective rear ends out in an do or die game.  If he can repeat the performance he had against [...]
