Bad News for the Wolfpack


I would never be so brazen as to guarantee a win, but there are certainly some trends that point to a very positive outcome for the Heels on Thursday... Personally, I am very interested to see...

UNC vs. Virginia Tech: Beyond the Box


Coming into yesterday's game, there was some debate as to what would be the best possible outcome of the Virginia Tech game for UNC to (begin to) move past what happened Saturday. The two most...

UNC vs. FSU: Beyond the Box


How do you describe yesterday's game? It was a "Perfect Storm of Crap." UNC, under Roy, traditionally struggles this time of year. I don't know why this is, other than that his teams generally...

UNC vs. Miami: Beyond the Box


Last year's UNC team did a lot of things well, especially if you look at the stretch of basketball that started with the insertion of Kendall Marshall into the starting lineup. This is not...

UNC vs. BC: Beyond the Box


The Tar Heels' performance during yesterday's game against B.C. can really be defined by the answer to one question: was Carolina's starting five on the court? When they were, UNC not only looked...

UNC vs. Monmouth: Beyond the Box


Ho hum. Another game, another Carolina blow-out. The Heels have now won 8 games this season by 20 or more points, matching their total for the entirety of last season (only 5 came in the...

UNC vs. Elon: Beyond the Box


What a difference a year makes. 2010 was a year that Tar Heel fans won't forget soon enough, as the calendar year saw the basketball Heels go a completely mediocre (which for UNC equals terrible)...

UNC vs. Texas: Beyond the Box


That was emphatic. North Carolina used last night's first half to show that their defensive output against Nicholls was no fluke, nor was it entirely the result of beating up on a hapless...

UNC vs. Nicholls: Beyond the Box


Yes, Nicholls (State?) is awful (KenPom rank: 336). And yes, the Heels should have beaten the tar out of them. But as anyone who watches college basketball knows, what a college basketball team...

UNC vs. Appalachian State: Beyond the Box


As THF mentioned in the post-game write-up, UNC really wasn't as rusty as is common after a week-off for exams. And while the score was certainly closer than most would have expected (or liked),...

UNC vs. Long Beach State: Beyond the Box


Pity the school who gets Long Beach State as their opening round match-up in the NCAA Tournament this year. The 49ers proved that last year was no fluke, pushing UNC right to the edge for the...

UNC vs. Evansville: Beyond the Box


Carolina took an over-matched team behind the woodshed last night. And while that was exactly what they were supposed to do, anyone who follows college basketball knows that it is often the case...

UNC vs. Kentucky: Beyond the Box


That was a terrific game. It was lot of fun to watch, and for a December game, was played at a really high level. But to be perfectly frank, Carolina could have/should have beaten Kentucky...

UNC vs. Wisconsin: Beyond the Box


While the Big "Ten" may have won the ACC/B1G Challenge for the third straight year, it was not enough to end the Tar Heels' recent ownership of the conference. UNC has gone 15-3 against the...

UNC vs. UNLV: Beyond the Box


Well, so ends UNC's shot at an undefeated season. ;) That is about all this loss means to this season in a negative aspect, especially if the Heels can use this as a teaching tool going forward. ...

UNC vs. TSU: Beyond the Box


Biscuits, double order!! One hundred-point games had certainly been in short supply since Tyler Hansbrough et al. left Chapel Hill, as the Heels had only topped the century mark 3 times in 74...

UNC vs. MVSU: Beyond the Box


Well, UNC is officially off to a better start to this season than they were last season, as the Heels cruised to a fairly lopsided win over Jerry Rice's alma mater. I specifically say that the...

UNC vs. UNCA: Beyond the Box


Survive and advance. Okay, so we are not nearly to that point of the season yet, but for some reason, whether it was the Friday/Sunday game times, or the unusual hype surrounding the games, these...

BTB Glossary


The Four Factors: eFG% (effective Field Goal %) = [FGM + (0.5 x 3PM)] / FGA TO% (Turnover %) = Team Turnovers / Team Possessions OR% (Offensive Rebounding %) = Team OR / (Team OR + Opponent DR) F...

UNC vs. Michigan State: Beyond the Box


This was a solid win. There was nothing overly spectacular, but there was more good than bad, and that is really all you can ask for the first game of the season, especially one played on... wait...

Player Profile: Kendall Marshall


In the ramp up to the 2011-12 basketball season, Tar Heel Fan will be profiling key Tar Heels who will likely be major contributors this season. Today’s profile looks at guard Kendall Marshall. V...

The Big East Coast Conference?


Now that the ACC has accepted Pitt and Syracuse into the ACC the discussion moves to what this means going forward. The first thing that immediately jumps out to me is that, in stark contrast to...

Barnes to Return!


And let the expectations begin to soar... In a statement released by North Carolina, Harrison Barnes has decided to spurn the NBA for at least one more year and return to Chapel Hill for his...

The 2011 Season: Beyond the Box


What a season. Despite the fact that UNC started the season ranked 8th (AP) in the nation and ended season ranked 7th, and that Doc, THF and I almost nailed our preseason predictions, this season...

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...

UNC vs. Marquette: Beyond the Box


The combined score at halftime the last two times a Roy Williams-coached team played Marquette? How does 99-45 sound? Even Tom Izzo thinks that is really, really bad. Four Factors NCAA Basketball...

UNC vs. UW: Beyond the Box


That was a really, really good college basketball game (save for maybe the last 6-seconds, when things got a little "Pitt/Butler"). It was the kind of game where you (almost) wished that you...

UNC vs. LIU: Beyond the Box


The story of this game is pretty simple: LIU had a NEC-frontline. UNC has a NBA-frontline. Harrison Barnes, John Henson, and Tyler Zeller were as dominant as you will ever see a trio of front...
