As the calendar prepares to flip to April, UNC baseball coach Mike Fox finds his team in familiar territory. With a 7-6 win over Coastal Carolina on Tuesday, the seventh-ranked Tar Heels improved to 19-6 on the season.

UNC DE Allen Cater Tackles Entrepreneurship

In a brainstorm with their entrepreneurship coach, Allen Cater pitched his idea to find a way to improve the laundry process in residence halls.

Video: March 29, 1982 - UNC Beats Georgetown for National Title

Freshman Michael Jordan swished a 16-foot jumper from left wing for a late lead in the title game, but Georgetown had enough time to set up a game-winner of their own.

The Seven Biggest Final Four Storylines

North Carolina’s redemption run, Roy Williams one of the greatest ever? The Tar Heels are right back in the Final Four as the favorite to win the title. And if they do win, it may be time to start calling Roy Williams one of the greatest college basketball coaches of all-time. Think about it like this: If Roy cuts down the nets again, he’ll have won three national titles in a 12-year span. (NBC Sports)

Experience means only so much for Tar Heels

North Carolina is recognized as almost a regular Final Four participant. This week, it’s an extreme situation.

Tar Heels' Luke Maye headlines list of Final Four X-factors

Luke Maye can't go to class without getting a standing ovation nor walk across campus without getting stopped by people requesting to take a photo with him.

UNC’s journey to the Final Four included many twists and turns

As March turns to April, North Carolina finds itself exactly where it was this time last year: in the Final Four. On the surface, it hardly seems like a surprise. However, to think that the return of those pieces virtually guaranteed the Tar Heels a trip back to the national semifinals would be, to say the least, oversimplifying a complicated situation. (FanRag Sports)

Putting Luke Maye’s shot into perspective alongside others in UNC history

North Carolina has won 2,204 men’s basketball games, and counting, but it had been 27 years, since it won an NCAA tournament game the way it did on Sunday against Kentucky.
