Ginyard Is Ready To Go

In case you were wondering if the Saga of the Foot ended as well as the Saga of the Toe.

Via IC:

Ginyard practiced with the team all the way through the Final Four, though the extent of his participation was limited by the injury and he suffered through difficult soreness after each practice. [...]

Summer of Deon! Update[6/30]

I was going to say that Deon Thompson is still fighting the Cold War but I think he missed most of it.

Team USA won a typical Bo Ryan coached basketball game 67-63 versus Russia.  Only two Americans were in double figures. Corey Fisher had 15 and Deon Thompson had 12 points to go along [...]

Summer of Deon! Update[6/29]

The United States World University Games Team played in the Serbia International Invitational over the weekend as a tune up for the World University Games.  Team USA split the two meetings beating Canada 85-81 and falling to Serbia 98-92.

Deon Thompson scored 10 points, six rebounds and two blocks in the win over Canada but [...]

Kicker Jay Wooten To Transfer

More shuffling of players.

Jay Wooten split FG kicking duties with Casey Barth last season but handled all of the kickoffs. While no reason was given for the transfer nor has UNC had anything official to say about it I am going to wildly speculate that Wooten had no interest in a similar arrangement next [...]

Four Heels Get Drafted

Three first rounders and one in the 2nd.

NBA Draft Is Tonight

Like 2005, plenty of Tar Heel interest in this one though not in the “four Heels in the first 14 picks” sort of way.

Tyler Hansbrough, Ty Lawson, Wayne Ellington and Danny Freaking Green will be hoping their name will be called.  In fact I wish there was some way I could get whichever NBA [...]

Impact of The Elliot Williams Decision

J.P. Giglio has a great rundown on what this means for Duke.  In short, the Blue Devils are in a world of hurt now.  Without Gerald Henderson Duke could at least turn to a triumvirate of Jon Scheyer, Kyle Singler and Elliott Williams to get the job done.  Without Williams the perimeter in Durham is [...]

Duke Loses Elliot Williams

There were rumblings about this awhile back with something his father had said.  Now it appears it is happening.

Williams is leaving Duke for family medical reasons and will attempt to transfer near his home in Memphis, TN.  This is not unlike what former Tar Heel Alex Stepheson did at the end of last season.  [...]

Graves Will Return

At least that is the headline at ACC Now which is a tad incorrect since the quote given in the post from Roy Williams indicated that Will Graves still has conditions to meet. A more accurate headline would be “Roy Assumes Graves Will Return”

He said Graves hasn’t been “re-instated,” per se, because the suspension [...]

The Freshman By The Numbers


The incoming class have been assigned numbers according to Tar Heel Blue:

Dexter Strickland: #5 John Henson: #31 Leslie McDonald: #15 David Wear: #34 Travis Wear: #43

Dexter Strickland wearing #5 is going to be a little strange.  They should think about a moratorim on numbers which are due to be honored.  It has [...]

Carolina March On Lawson’s Chances

Carolina March has a nice rundown on the latest word from the NBA experts and so-called experts.  According to CM,  if you are a numbers guy like ESPN’s John Hollinger you are impressed beyond words with Ty Lawson.   If you have no use for numbers and are simply throwing pasta at the wall to see [...]
