On Sunday when the Tar Heels begin a three-game home stand against Radford, players and fans will have a chance to respond to Roy Williams’ charges.

Country artist Chase Rice is more 'grown-up' than he used to be

At age 31, country artist Chase Rice said he's a different person, and a better artist, than when he began pursuing his career nine years ago. "I was 22 years old when I lost my dad. There's no script of how to deal with something like that." As he coped with the loss, the Asheville, North Carolina native moved to Nashville, where he "partied really hard."

Where’s UNC’s Transition Offense Gone?

Across its last two games, only 41% of North Carolina’s offensive possessions have been used in the first 10 seconds of the shot clock.

Let’s have a look at how that compares to a.) this season to date and, b.) a couple of vintage Roy Williams teams (2009 and 2012).

'Respect' among reasons Eric Ebron wasn't too mad with Vikings shutting him out
