Video: Larry Fedora Post-Pitt Locker Room Speech

North Carolina coach Larry Fedora had a message for his team after the Tar Heels rallied to defeat Pittsburgh, 37-36 on Saturday in Chapel Hill.

2016 Clippers Player Preview: Raymond Felton

Raymond Felton projects as the third point guard on the Los Angeles Clippers' roster, behind Chris Paul and Austin Rivers, filling the role Pablo Prigioni played in the second half of the season for the Clippers last year. He’s a significant upgrade over Prigioni on both sides of the ball, and should be in line to play more minutes than Pablo got last year.

Trubisky, Finley combine for 16 TDs with no INTs

Two of the nation's most efficient quarterbacks play in the same conference for schools less than an hour apart in the same state. North Carolina's Mitch Trubisky and NC State's Ryan Finley have combined to throw 16 touchdown passes with no interceptions, and their completion rate is 75 percent (163 of 217). Trubisky has been especially sharp.

Protesters sit out national anthem in student section at Pittsburgh game

Four days after Keith Lamont Scott, a black man, was shot and killed by Charlotte police, more than 100 students wearing black protested police brutality in the student section of Kenan Memorial Stadium during Saturday’s game against Pittsburgh. The students sat silently while the national anthem played. Many raised their fists.

Video: Jerry Stackhouse NBA Career Highlights

New Raptors 905 head coach and former Tar Heel, Jerry Stackhouse, was a great player during his tenure in the NBA. Lets look back at his best career highlights.

Extra Points: Stone Cold

The Fade to Bug will take its spot alongside Gio Bernard’s punt return vs. N.C. State in 2012 and Amos Lawrence’s draw play vs. Duke in 1978 in the handful of colossal last-minute, game-winning plays for the Tar Heels. In the aftermath there were comparisons to the Tar Heels’ monster rally at Georgia Tech in the ACC opener from last year that set off the dominoes toward the ACC division title.

Bug Howard describes game-winning catch, final moments

UNC wide receiver Bug Howard will go down in North Carolina football lore as making one of the biggest and more miraculous catches even in Kenan Stadium. With five seconds remaining in the game and UNC down six to Pittsburgh, center Lucas Crowley hiked the ball to quarterback Mitch Trubisky who tossed the ball to the right front corner of the end zone.

UNC's Identity Coming into Focus

Stats rarely lie, although emotion lacks a numerical value that can be factored into an equation. Pitt ran at will – 228 rushing yards at a 4.9-yards-per-carry clip through three quarters – until the Tar Heel defense decided it was time to make enough plays to give its offense an opportunity to win the game. Three of Pitt’s final four drives were three-and-outs.

No. 5 Carolina Field Hockey Knocks Off No. 2 Duke, 3-2

Tar Heel sophomore Eva van’t Hoog scored twice in just over three minutes, tying the score then giving UNC the lead for good in a 3-2 field hockey win over No. 2 Duke Sunday at Francis E. Henry Stadium. The win completed a stellar stretch for the fifth-ranked Tar Heels, who in consecutive games knocked off the top two teams in the national rankings.

Foolish to sleep on UNC’s Switzer during record day

It’s doubtful that opponents will continue to “sleep on” UNC’s receivers, particularly Ryan Switzer. So maybe there will no longer be a need for bathrobes during warmups? “Mack Hollins kept saying that they’re sleeping on us. So we grabbed bathrobes and warmed up for five minutes.” Switzer proceeded to figuratively undress the Pittsburgh secondary all day.

UNC Volleyball Escapes Boston College Comeback Bid

No. 12 UNC volleyball cruised to a 2-0 match lead, but an hour later the Tar Heels found themselves facing match point at Boston College, down 14-13 in the fifth set. UNC retained its poise and battled to a 21-19 victory to claim its second five-set victory of the week. The win lifts Carolina to 10-2 (2-0 ACC), while Boston College falls to 5-7 (0-2 ACC).

Carolina, Clemson Battle to 1-1 Draw in Women's Soccer

In a hard-fought 110 minutes of ACC women’s soccer Sunday afternoon, No. 13 Clemson and No. 18 North Carolina battled to 1-1 tie at Historic Riggs Field. Annie Kingman scored in the 24th minute for the Tar Heels and Clemson got the equalizer in the 32nd minute. Neither team was able to get on the scoreboard the remainder of the way.

Reggie Bullock criss-crosses country, readies for training camp battle

Reggie Bullock spent a bulk of his off-season training at home in North Carolina, but worked in trips to Los Angeles, Miami and Atlanta -- with training thrown in, of course -- ahead of the start of Pistons training camp Tuesday. The 6-foot-7 Bullock got some good news at the start of last season when the Pistons opted to pick up a team option on him for 2016-17.

Video: Mitch Trubisky Tosses 5 Touchdowns vs. Pitt

QB Mitch Trubisky continued his excellence under center, throwing for these five touchdowns to four different receivers (including the game-winner with two seconds remaining) in the 37-36 win over Pittsburgh on September 24, 2016.

Sleeping on North Carolina? Wake up and throw on a robe

The bathrobes in UNC's locker room are usually for comfort. But before Saturday's game against Pittsburgh -- a dramatic 37-36 Tar Heels win -- a few of the receivers decided to wear them onto the field as a fashion statement. Ryan Switzer, Bug Howard and Mack Hollins all donned bathrobes as they went through warm-up drills -- until they got a little too warmed up.
