    By not competing, Carolina committed the cardinal sin of UNC basketball Saturday night at N.C. State. Whether underdog, undermanned or under intense pressure from a crazed crowd, the Tar Heels have rarely not been ready to fight from the opening tip.

  • Bye Bye, Big 10 Terps

    January 20, 2013 at 4:12 pm

    Amidst the chaos that has become college athletics, Carolina defeated Maryland Saturday in truly a tale of two halves. The Tar Heels played perhaps their best 20 minutes of basketball to begin the game and ended with perhaps their worst. Depending on when they officially bolt for the Big 10 and the 2014 basketball schedule, […]

  • The Rap On Roy

    January 15, 2013 at 2:23 pm

    There’s an old story about Roy Williams from a coaches’ clinic just after he returned to UNC. Williams was speaking to a couple of hundred of his peers, and the subject was the Carolina fast break.   “Our break is pretty simple,” Williams said. Then he went on to detail how it worked: Sean May […]

  • The Skinny Boys

    During the most critical stretch of UNC’s alphabet soup win over UNLV Saturday, the Tar Heels denied the Running Rebels three chances to take back the lead they had held only once briefly earlier in the second half. Thrice the Rebs had the ball down one point and, thrice, the Heels denied them the go-ahead […]
