  • Duke, And The War for Wiggins

    March 10, 2013 at 8:40 am

         Some sobering        thoughts on Car olina’s bad — really bad — loss to Duke Saturday night: The Tar Heels lost the battle but they may have won the War for Wiggins. More on that later. Larry Fedora has a new goal to hit Duke with a two touchdown lead (14 points) next fall before […]

  • The Amazing Eight

    March 4, 2013 at 5:01 am

    It may not rival the famed 8-points-in-17-seconds comeback against Duke in 1974, but Carolina’s 31 points in the last eight minutes of the first half against Florida State Sunday constitutes one of the hottest scoring streaks you will ever see.   The Tar Heels scored the first seven points of the game but then fell […]

  • Smith By The Numbers

    February 26, 2013 at 4:03 pm

                               Dean Smith will be 82 on Thursday, which is February 28 and a neat juxtaposition of numbers wouldn’t you say?    Wait, there is more irony here. Smith won his first NCAA championship as a coach in ’82, which was 31 years ago. And The Dean was born in 1931.   Next season will be […]

  • School of Rock

    February 24, 2013 at 6:08 pm

            “Big-time basketball” made another stop in Chapel Hill Saturday, and though it isn’t always this way the shaking Smith Center gave nothing up to crazy Cameron, maniacal Maryland and the Wild West venues of the Big 12 that Roy Williams occasionally pines for. From the moment you saw far more fetching fingers in the […]

  • A Hot, Snowy Day On The Hill

    February 17, 2013 at 5:18 am

                Maybe it has to be freezing outside for the Tar Heels to get hot inside. That was certainly the case on a cold and snowy Saturday, when Carolina played perhaps its best game of the season and, at long last, shot the lights out in the second half of a 93-81 win over Virginia. […]
