Diamond Heels Advance, Face Stanford in Super Regional

UNC’s baseball team blew open a tight game with some clutch hitting late, and the bullpen then shut the door on a pesky James Madison squad as the Tar Heels won the Chapel Hill regional with a 9-3 victory over the Dukes.

After CAA player of the year Jake Lowery of JMU tied the game [...]

Behind The Scenes With Blue Steel

Via Reese News.

Blue Steel member D.J. Johnston carried his video camera everywhere(or so it seems) when the team was in Newark for the NCAA Tournament. This is simply video evidence of how much fun these guys had this past season and what makes this group in particular special.

NCAA Final: #3 UConn vs #8 Butler, 9:23 PM, CBS

Wait…9:23 PM? Why in the name of Dean Smith does this game start this late? I guess to capture the end of the game in primetime on the west coast. Midnight is pretty late to wait for One Shining Moment.

From the Tar [...]

Rumors, Rumors Everywhere[UPDATED]

UPDATE: Via Jeff Goodman on Twitter.

Harrison Barnes and his mother, Shirley, both have told FOXSports.com that a decision has not yet been made whether he will return to UNC.

Could be a denial when asked a direct question ahead of the announcement or it could be true.

Stay tuned.


Just one actually but [...]

National Semifinal #1: #8 Butler vs #11 VCU, 6:09 PM, CBS National Semifinal #2: #3 UConn vs #4 Kentucky, 8:49 PM, CBS

UNC vs. Kentucky: Beyond the Box

And so it ends.  I don’t know how anyone can think this was a good season, I mean last year’s team was still playing at this point in the season!

Obviously, I am kidding.

This was a tremendous season, especially when you consider that from December 1st on, UNC went 25-5.  Was it as ultimately [...]

Kentucky 76 UNC 69

There is only so many times you can put yourself in that position and expect to come out on top.

Of all the regional finals I can remember UNC losing, this might be as calmly as I have taken a loss. Part of that was the nagging feeling I had for two days that, for [...]

NCAA: UNC-UK Game Thread

A few months ago…

That dunk capped off a seven point run by Harrison Barnes. This was the first glimpses of the player so hyped in the preseason. As the season progressed, Barnes had more stretches like this and if he plays like that in the regional final, UNC might just find a way [...]

The Appetizer

Southwest: #1 Kansas vs #11 VCU, 2:20 PM, CBS

For Kansas this is a repeat of the 2008 regional final where they faced #10 seeded Davidson only VCU does not appear to have anyone as good as Stephen Curry. I know VCU has made an incredible run but I just don’t see them [...]

A Look Back At The 1995 Regional Final vs Kentucky

Here are the final few minutes via The Carolina Legacy from the last time these two titans of college basketball met in the NCAA Tournament. UNC, the #2 seed in the Southeast that season,  had assumed marginal control of the game despite committing 20 turnovers against the Wildcat press. #1 seeded Kentucky could not hit [...]
