Injury Report and Other Notes From Roy

Roy Williams addressed injuries and a variety of topics during the ACC teleconference. Full quotes can be found at IC.


McDonald has not practiced since before the Clemson game.  Initially McDonald was thought to simply have a bruised back but was later revealed to have a collapsed lung. Roy indicated McDonald would practice today. [...]

Austin Says He “Messed Up Great Situation” at UNC; Not Much Else

Give Marvin Austin credit. After potentially costing UNC a breakout season and bringing the wrath of the NCAA to Chapel Hill for the first time in 50 years, then causing more consternation among Tar Heel fans by wearing a Carolina helmet in his East-West Shrine Game appearance, he appears to at least be saying the [...]

Hansbrough’s Natural Instincts Take Over; Dunks On Blue Devil

It is well documented that both animals and humans possess certain instincts that simply take over when the right set of conditions present themselves. For example, a cat when faced with danger will raise it’s back up, hiss and prepare to defend itself. Or a turtle when threatened will hide in it’s shell. If someone [...]

What Roy MEANT To Say Was…

Let’s see: UNC won a big home game Tuesday night, defeating a game Clemson squad, making key lineup changes, extending a NCAA-record winning streak, and probably most important putting Sunday night’s debacle at Georgia Tech behind them and keeping Carolina near the top of the ACC standings. So what’s the big story still two days [...]

UNC vs. Clemson: Beyond the Box

Fifty-five.  That is certainly a big number, and while it is rightfully getting much of the focus, in my opinion, the more important number is 9, as in, the North Carolina Tar Heels are now 9-0 in Chapel Hill this season.  In a season where home-court seems to be more important than ever (the home [...]

McDonald Suffered a Lung Injury

A pneumothorax or as it is known to most people “collapsed lung”

Via ACC Now:

As a result of the back bruise he sustained in Sunday’s game at Georgia Tech, UNC basketball player Leslie McDonald also is dealing with a pneumothorax, which team spokesman Steve Kirschner — after talking to the team trainer — described [...]

UNC 75 Clemson 65

Yes, UNC can drive 55.

In some ways that ended up being way more difficult than it needed to be. UNC’s biggest issue, which has now been on display through four ACC games, is the lack of offensive consistency. Well, better stated, the lack of said consistency from opening tip to final buzzer. UNC was [...]

UNC-Clemson Game Thread

Here is the final 10 minutes of regulation from the 2008 game vs Clemson in Chapel Hill. UNC trailed by 11 following a James Mays dunk with three minutes left. Note the reaction of the Clemson bench. They thought they had it in the bag. Not so fast my friend. At that point Danny Freaking [...]

UNC vs Clemson

Where: Dean Smith Center, Chapel Hill, NC When: Tuesday, January 18th, 8:00 PM TV: Raycom/ESPN3 Records: UNC 12-5, 2-1 ACC; Clemson 13-4, 2-1 ACC

Not to get caught up on just one game but this one in particular is high stakes on a variety of levels. The obvious one is The Streak. Clemson has never [...]

UNC vs. Georgia Tech: Beyond the Box

Ugh…  As Tom Brennan once said, “Sometimes you are the pigeon.  And sometimes you are the statue.”  And last night, North Carolina was most certainly the statue.  It was ugly, no doubt, and while I do think that it is quite knee-jerk to say that last night’s loss renders the improvement that was made over [...]

Georgia Tech 78 UNC 58

Call this…well…whatever you want to call it. It was clearly one of those shake your head, face in your palm, pet hiding in the other room kind of game.

It was ugly and there is not a darn thing we can do about it now. You guys want to burn the place down, rip the [...]
