Virginia 75 UNC 60

I’ve got nothing. Nada. Zip. I am not sure what I saw tonight is worth me writing 1000 words on and even if it did what pray tell would I write which would be any different than what I have written for the other three ACC losses?  Let’s just go [...]

UNC-UVa Game Thread

Five inches of snow on the ground outside but plenty of basketball to be had.  Heels try to make it two in a row and get back to .500 in the ACC then hopefully set course for the rest of the season. UNC’s big men should take full advantage of the talent gap to control [...]

UNC vs Virginia

Where: Dean Smith Center, Chapel Hill, NC When: Sunday, January 31st, 7:45 PM TV: Fox Sports Live Stats: SCACC Hoops Records: UNC 13-7, 2-3 ACC; UVa 12-6, 3-2 ACC

Step one was breaking out of the three game funk that imperiled the season. Step two is to sustain the effort and win the next game. [...]

Drew II and Strickland

For much of the season, there has been a significant debate as to whether Dexter Strickland should begin to eat away at some of Larry Drew’s minutes at PG. In essence, this debate has boiled down to the explosiveness of Strickland versus the better assist-to-turnover ratio of Drew. Of late, this debate has been somewhat muted, not because one player has clearly separated himself, but rather, it is because a new question has arisen: Should Larry Drew II and Dexter Strickland see more minutes together? [...]

The Mountain Ahead

Assuming UNC is done with the valley and only time will tell that for sure, the Heels still have a pretty tough mountain to climb.  UNC sits at 2-3 in the ACC and 13-7 overall. To get to twenty wins means they would have to go 7-4 down the stretch and out the Heels at [...]

Coaching clipboard - NCSU

UNC fans got what they were hoping for on Tuesday night with a desperately-needed win over NC State after a week off.  Much of the message board banter and punditry during the week focused on what adjustments Roy Williams and the coaching staff would make during the football equivalent of the open date.

If you [...]

UNC Players Also Think Tim Brando Is Freakin’ Annoying

The Heels watched a tape of the game en route back to Chapel Hill.  Larry Drew had this to say about one of Tim Brando’s asinine attempts to flower up the broadcast with…well…I have no idea. And neither did Drew hence the laughing.

Feels good to win eh fellas?

UNC 77 NCSU 63

Well it is about time.

Let’s be very clear up front. This is only one game.  NCSU is not a good team the win over Duke not withstanding. One game does not a season make.  As UNC fans we are well acquainted with that idea when it comes to losses so now we must give [...]

UNC at NC State

Where: RBC Center, Raleigh, NC When: Tuesday, January 26th, 9:00 PM TV: Raycom or ESPN360 Livestats: SCACC Hoops Records: UNC 12-7, 1-3 ACC; NCSU 13-7, 2-4

At this point no one knows if Ed Davis will play. If I read the signs correctly, I would say he is not playing.  Roy Williams said on Monday [...]

Tennessee Eyeing Withers?

ESPN SEC blogger Chris Low is reporting that Tennessee coach Derek Dooley might be interested in UNC defensive coordinator Everett Withers to round out his staff:

He’s swung and missed on a couple of big names for his defensive coordinator, most recently Clemson’s Kevin Steele, but one of the guys to keep an eye on [...]
