UNC Basketball Establishing Identity

Can the Tar Heels win attempting to adhere to the typical Roy Williams model -- balanced, inside-out -- or do they have to commit to the faster, perimeter-oriented approach that relies heavily on knocking down shots from deep? "It's always great to make shots but I don't think we necessarily need to shoot 31 threes and make 15 of them," Cameron Johnson said. (Inside Carolina)

UNC didn't want to be there

It started with 15 seconds of silence and ended with an apology. It was the type of postgame press conference the UNC women's basketball team is tired of holding: explaining a blown lead, dreadful shooting and another ACC loss, the third in six tries this season. Sylvia Hatchell stared quietly at a box score that didn't hold the answers. They didn't want to be there. (Argyle Report)

Jerry Stackhouse, Raptors 905 commanding league-wide respect

One area of the Raptors 905 that makes it hard to look at being assigned to the G League as a demotion is the man who stands tall as the head coach. Jerry Stackhouse has brought a work ethic and discipline to the 905 system that pushes players to their limits, and when you’re at that highest point of resistance, that’s when you can achieve growth.

Bears new offensive coordinator sees Mitch Trubisky as coachable, accurate

“You can tell a quarterback is coachable watching his feet and his eyes, and his eyes are deliberate,” Bears new offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich said of Mitch Trubisky. “They’re going from one to two to three or looking here, high-low on this guy. Whatever it is, they’re deliberate. And the other thing that jumped out is his accuracy and taking care of the football." (Chicago Tribune)

Colin Moran’s Power Surge May Be Long Lasting

The Pirates new third baseman Colin Moran leaves Houston as one of the biggest success stories of the Astros' belief in the power of the fly ball. A year ago, Moran seemed locked into a low-impact role: He was a slow-footed third baseman with an ability to hit for average but without the power needed from a corner infield spot. Moran's career high in home runs was 10. (Baseball America)

UNC, Duke take on each other’s style

North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams is stubborn, He’ll tell you that himself, especially when it comes to his favored inside-out style of play. “I had three NBA coaches this summer tell me, ‘I hope you keep playing the same way you’re playing, because about everybody has gone to an open offense with nobody in the post,’” Williams said earlier this season.

Inside the UNC Numbers: Transition 3s and Stat Nuggets

There’s been some consternation about North Carolina’s transition offense this season. Compared to past UNC teams, we haven’t seen the number of rim runs by the bigs or easy opportunities fueled by forced live-ball turnovers.
