Why Doesn't UNC Guard the Three?


There are very few, if any, who will argue that the sum total of last 10 seasons under Roy Williams has been anything less than great.  Yes, there have been down moments, but two Titles, three...

Player Profile: Marcus Paige


G Marcus Paige, Sophomore, 6-1, 175 lbs It is only fitting that the last player profiled for the upcoming season is Marcus Paige. While Paige may not be the name that comes to mind first when...

Player Profile: P.J. Hairston


G P.J. Hairston, Junior, 6-6, 220 lbs Perhaps the biggest, and assuredly the most asked question pertaining to the 2014 Tar Heels is to what effect will the "Summer of P.J." have on both the team,...

Player Impact Ratings: Maui Invitational


Maui, it turns out, was a perfect demonstration of everything this Carolina team is (and can be). At it's best, it is a deep team with an All-American forward, and plenty of shooters. At its...

Player Impact Ratings: First Three Games


Three games down, three wins in the bag. While there have certainly been stretches of uneven play, overall it is hard to be displeased with where this team stands, and excited about where they...

Dexter Strickland


In the ramp up to the 2012-13 basketball season, the Tar Heel Blog will be profiling key Tar Heels who will likely be major contributors this season. Today’s profile looks at guard Dexter...

UNC's senior guard returns from the ACL injury that sidelined him last season.

He'd better adapt quickly... because I'm going to give him the ball. I love him. I think he was the...


He'd better adapt quickly... because I'm going to give him the ball. I love him. I think he was the best point guard in high school basketball last year. … He's a marvelous player with wonderful savvy and he plays like a very, very mature guy.

Roy Williams, at UNC's basketball media day, when asked about who would be the starting point guard to begin the season.

Matt Harvey's Dominating Debut


Many who follow Major League Baseball will know that the New York Mets were one of the top surprises during the season's first-half. Unfortunately for both the team and its fans, the second-half...

UNC vs. Kansas: Beyond the Box


Based on preseason expectations, Carolina's season ended too soon. Based on the reality of what really happened this season, they probably played longer than we would have had a right to expect. ...

UNC vs. Ohio: Beyond the Box


As crazy as this may seem, UNC in the Elite 8 is getting close to becoming a rite of spring. The Heels have now made the Elite 8 in each of their last five Tournament appearances, and have been...

UNC vs. Creighton: Beyond the Box


Pyrrhic victory \PIR-ik\ , noun: A victory achieved at great or excessive cost; a ruinous victory. Yeah, that about sums it up. Four Factors College Basketball Stats Lost, or at least...

Q & A with an Orthopedic Surgeon


I am fortunate to have a number of friends in the medical profession, one of whom happens to be an orthopedic chief resident who specializes in the hand and wrist; he also happens to be a former DI...

UNC vs. Vermont: Beyond the Box


Yesterday was a milestone win for North Carolina. For the 5th time in the last 8 seasons, UNC reached the 30-win plateau. That is the same number of 30-win seasons as UNC had in the previous f...

Beyond the Box: Player Impact Ratings


Needless to say, there is a lot going on right now. With everyone either knee-deep in brackets, or digesting the impact of the NCAA infractions, going back and rehashing the ins and outs of a loss...

ACCT First Round Open Thread II


The evening schedule: #7 Clemson versus #10 Virginia Tech, 7:00 PM #6 Miami versus #11 Georgia Tech, 9:00 PM Two more games that don't offer a whole lot of hope for anything exciting. Miami, like...

ACCT First Round Open Thread I


March, for a college basketball fan, it doesn't get any better than this! Well, looking at today's schedule, maybe we should wait until tomorrow to make that statement... Afternoon match-ups: #8...

UNC vs. Duke: Beyond the Box


That. Was. Awesome. Look, it is really pretty simple: North Carolina is a better team than Duke is this year. They should have won the first game, and they set out to prove it last night. But...

UNC vs. Maryland: Beyond the Box


The Heels finally threw a knock-out punch. For the first 30 minutes, this game felt like most of Carolina's other ACC contests: they were ahead, and maybe even in control, but their lead was by no...

UNC vs. UVa: Beyond the Box


The bottom-line for this week? The Tar Heels went on the road twice, against teams who, at the very least are fighting for their NCAA Tournament lives, and twice came away with victories. Was...

Zeller Recognized as the Academic All-American of the Year


Alternate title: "Tyler Zeller Continues to be Awesome at Everything." Tyler Zeller picked up a pair of honors today, becoming not only the first Tar Heel basketball player to be named as the...

UNC vs. N.C. State: Beyond the Box


North Carolina's win against N.C. State last night had a very "2009-ish" feel to it. No, I am not trying to say that the teams are similar; I am just noting that this was the type of game that was...

UNC vs. Clemson: Beyond the Box


Maybe too much is being read into UNC's streak of wins against Clemson in Chapel Hill. I mean, as Jay Bilas said last night, everyone is capable of having a bad century now and again... Four...

UNC vs. Miami: Beyond the Box


This was a better win than I think a lot of people who are not ardent followers of the Tar Heels will give them credit for. UNC really struggled in two games against a lesser version of this team...

UNC vs. UVa: Beyond the Box


61 - 36. UNC started, perhaps predictably, fairly slowly yesterday, which included allowing Virginia to hit on seven straight field goals at one point. But from about the 12-minute mark in the...

UNC vs. Duke: Beyond the Box


This was an absolutely gut-wrenching loss, but I am not sure that it is anything more than that. As Brian pointed out in his post-game wrap-up, UNC is now 0-5 at home in their first match-up...

UNC vs. Maryland: Beyond the Box


Is it possible that the beatdown that the Heels took in Tallahassee will actually prove to be a blessing in disguise? Since then, UNC has twice faced a situation in which they went into halftime...

UNC vs. Wake Forest: Beyond the Box


It is possible that calling last night's game "ugly," may be a bit of an overstatement. It really was more of an "odd" game, as the Heels did actually do a lot of things well. Unfortunately for...

UNC vs. GT: Beyond the Box


It's amazing how simple the game can be when the threes are falling... Four Factors College Basketball Despite the fact that UNC is leading the nation in scoring, games like this have not been...

UNC vs. NCSU: Beyond the Box


Confession time. When Lorenzo Brown's miracle three went in at the halftime buzzer, I had a momentary feeling that it could have a similar effect as the Dwight Stewart heave during the 1995 Final...
