UNC vs. Virginia Tech: Beyond the Box

Coming into yesterday’s game, there was some debate as to what would be the best possible outcome of the Virginia Tech game for UNC to (begin to) move past what happened Saturday.  The two most discussed options were a blow-out win, or a game in which they were challenged and had to “dig deep” to [...]

UNC vs. FSU: Beyond the Box

How do you describe yesterday’s game?  It was a “Perfect Storm of Crap.”

UNC, under Roy, traditionally struggles this time of year. I don’t know why this is, other than that his teams generally have a season-long focus towards performance in March.

UNC traditionally struggles at FSU.

FSU is a talented team who had grossly [...]

UNC vs. Miami: Beyond the Box

Last year’s UNC team did a lot of things well, especially if you look at the stretch of basketball that started with the insertion of Kendall Marshall into the starting lineup.  This is not uncommon for a team that wins 14 games in conference and comes within a few stops of going to the Final [...]

UNC vs. BC: Beyond the Box

The Tar Heels’ performance during yesterday’s game against B.C. can really be defined by the answer to one question: was Carolina’s starting five on the court?  When they were, UNC not only looked good, they looked really good, outscoring the Eagles in each of the four stints to a combined total of 32-4.  However, when [...]

Evaluating UNC at the Midway Point

So here we are at roughly the halfway point of UNC’s 2011-12 season. The Heels have finished the non-conference schedule and now embark on a fun filled 16-game odyssey through the ACC. Now is as good a time as any to take stock of the players and the team. If you want a statistical view [...]

UNC vs. Monmouth: Beyond the Box

Ho hum.  Another game, another Carolina blow-out.  The Heels have now won 8 games this season by 20 or more points, matching their total for the entirety of last season (only 5 came in the non-conference schedule).

UNC vs. Elon: Beyond the Box

What a difference a year makes.  2010 was a year that Tar Heel fans won’t forget soon enough, as the calendar year saw the basketball Heels go a completely mediocre (which for UNC equals terrible) 18 - 18.  The year 2011, after a bit of a tumultuous start, has been much more fun, and has [...]

UNC vs. Texas: Beyond the Box

That was emphatic.  North Carolina used last night’s first half to show that their defensive output against Nicholls was no fluke, nor was it entirely the result of beating up on a hapless opponent.  The Heels took KenPom’s 20th ranked team (and 20th ranked offense) behind the woodshed over the game’s first 20 minutes, and [...]

UNC vs. Nicholls: Beyond the Box

Yes, Nicholls (State?) is awful (KenPom rank: 336).  And yes, the Heels should have beaten the tar out of them.  But as anyone who watches college basketball knows, what a college basketball team should do on paper, and what said team does do on the court, rarely equate to the same thing.  So congrats to [...]

UNC vs. Appalachian State: Beyond the Box

As THF mentioned in the post-game write-up, UNC really wasn’t as rusty as is common after a week-off for exams.  And while the score was certainly closer than most would have expected (or liked), as will be discussed on the other side of the break, the final totals don’t exactly tell the entire story.
