  • Art’s Angle: Playing With House Money

    March 15, 2014 at 11:21 pm

    If you’re still going off on Carolina’s embarrassing ouster from the ACC Tournament, ask yourself this question: How the hell did this team win 23 games? In a performance that was an apt summation of this season, the Tar Heels could not score and did not win the defensive and rebounding battles. That’s a recipe […]

  • Art’s Angle: Sky-High Anxiety

    March 5, 2014 at 11:43 am

    Michael Norwood was a walk-on senior playing his last home game in 1987, and boy was there some pressure on him! Starting with scholarship regulars Curtis Hunter, Dave Popson, Kenny Smith and Joe Wolf, Norwood knew he had better make the most of his three minutes of fame. By the way, the Tar Heels were […]

  • Art’s Angle: On Their Games

    February 27, 2014 at 2:14 pm

    If Marcus Paige and Roy Williams aren’t ACC Player and Coach of the Year, someone needs to demand a recount. Paige solidified the fact that he is not only the most valuable and most important player on his team in Wednesday night’s amazing win at N.C. State, but he is arguably the best player in […]

  • Art’s Angle: Unfathomable Journey

    February 19, 2014 at 4:00 pm

    When you think about the millions of rags-to-riches stories in American history, there may not be a journey quite like that of Mike Krzyzewski. Yes, our own Roy Williams has a similarly impressive tale from a poor kid in Spruce Pine, NC, to the first in his family to go to college and on to […]

  • Art’s Angle: The Perfect Storm

    February 14, 2014 at 9:41 am

    I drove home Wednesday night before 8 o’clock – clear across town, partly on 15-501 – and there was barely a car on the road. And Duke couldn’t make it over here, somehow-someway, for a 9:10 game? Look, everyone knows TV dictates all in sports these days. That’s why we have the dastardly 9 p.m. […]

  • Art’s Angle: The Pros And The Cons

    February 11, 2014 at 10:23 am

    Roy Williams said this week that his Tar Heels will have to play their best game of the season to defeat Duke Wednesday night in the Smith Center. Realistically, that may not even be good enough. Those who have wanted to know “What’s wrong with Carolina” this season should be measured in their excitement over […]

  • Art’s Angle: Getting It Right

    February 3, 2014 at 12:00 pm

    Even while watching the Carolina-State game Saturday and, later, the incredible Duke-Syracuse thriller, I thought about the out-of-control academic scandal here. The Tar Heels recruited a bunch of players who ended up at State, Duke and Syracuse; Roy Williams even said last week that he tried like heck to get the Wolfpack’s T.J. Warren, who […]

    Art’s Angle: 56 And Counting

    January 23, 2014 at 4:24 pm

    The way I see it, Clemson is lucky to be only 0-56 in men’s basketball games played in Chapel Hill. After all, they began playing back in 1926, which is 88 freakin’ years ago. So shouldn’t the Heels be something like 88 and zip against the Tigers? There are reasons for the missing 32 years. […]

    Art’s Angle: Your New ACC

    January 20, 2014 at 10:19 am

    Technically, at least until Monday night’s difficult game at Virginia, the Tar Heels are no longer the worst team in the ACC — the dubious distinction they held until notching their first conference win over Boston College Saturday. Before the hard fought 82-71 victory over the Eagles from Chestnut Hill, Carolina was the only winless […]

    Chansky: The Fed-Up Factor

    January 13, 2014 at 10:14 am

    Frankly, who could blame Roy Williams if he got so fed up that he quit after the season? Fans who are quick to criticize Ol’ Roy and those inside the university who have made his job harder and his life miserable ought to think about that. Where would UNC be if another casualty of the […]
