Five With Fedora - Nov. 13

Larry Fedora on North Carolina's win over Pitt: "(Quarterback Nathan Elliott is) a coach's kid who's been around the game his whole life. I think what was good to see against Miami and then again this week against Pitt was that he didn't shy away when the bright lights came on. He rose to the occasion. I thought he handled the offense well and executed the game plan." (

Defense Leads UNC Field Hockey To Final Four, Olympic Notes

It seemed appropriate for UNC to extend its season behind its defense. The Tar Heels had allowed only two goals in their first four postseason games. Before surrendering one in the 35th minute Sunday, 250 minutes, 30 seconds of game time separated them from the last goal they surrendered. UNC's defense will continue to be key Friday, when it faces No. 1 Connecticut. (

Lucas: UNC Basketball Notebook

Roy Williams has made references to the challenge of early-season practices with a team featuring eight new players. The veterans can tell a difference in the first approximately 25 practices this season as compared to past years. "There are a lot of plays we don't have in yet that we usually have in by the first game," Theo Pinson said. "We've taken things a little slower." (

Jawad Williams: Back to back?

Jawad Williams: I wanted to take this time to give my thoughts on my beloved UNC Tar Heels. Do they have what it takes to go back to back? I honestly believe so, but it most definitely will not be easy. The Heels have a good mix of upperclassmen and young guys. The next case of business for the Heels will be how to take that mix and make it one powerful unit. (Jawad Williams)

Former Warrior James Michael McAdoo returns to Oracle to get his ring

Prior to Saturday’s matchup between the Golden State Warriors and Philadelphia 76ers, former Warrior James Michael McAdoo took a 47-foot walk to receive his 2017 championship ring from Warriors assistant Ron Adams. However, his journey to get to Oakland Saturday was a bit more strenuous. “I’m thrilled that he’s here,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. (San Jose Mercury News)

Roy Williams attends C.B. McGrath's first game as UNCW head coach

C.B. McGrath imitated his Hall of Fame coaching mentor on Saturday, from inviting family to sit on the bench pregame to wearing a Carolina Blue tie. Then Roy Williams showed up. The three-time national championship coach, less than 24 hours removed from leading UNC to a win against Northern Iowa, made the unexpected trip to Wilmington for McGrath’s debut.

Athlon Sports 2017-18 ACC Basketball Preview

Defending national champ North Carolina still has Final Four potential despite losing most of its dominating frontcourt. Joel Berry ranks among the nation’s top point guards, and graduate transfer Cameron Johnson is one of the conference’s top shooters. Don’t expect a program that’s been to back-to-back national title games to slide back much. (Athlon Sports)

UNC Field Hockey Earns 9th Consecutive Final Four Berth

The UNC field hockey team is headed to the NCAA final four for the ninth year in a row and the 22nd time in program history after beating No. 11 Princeton Sunday 3-2 (Highlights).

UNC Women's Basketball Beats Colorado In Overtime Thriller

Jamie Cherry and Paris Kea combined for 54 points and UNC overcame an 18-point deficit to earn a dramatic 87-80 overtime victory over Colorado on Sunday (Highlights).

Sterling Manley Making Strides

6-foot-11 freshman forward Sterling Manley admitted to having nervous rumblings early in UNC’s 86-69 win over Northern Iowa on Friday, but quickly calmed them after scoring nine points and securing eight rebounds in 14 minutes. The first game of a player's career can be full of surprises, but the biggest surprise for Manley was how natural everything actually felt. (Inside Carolina)

Abby Elinsky's Career Day Lifts UNC Women's Soccer

As one of six seniors playing in their final season with the Tar Heels, Abby Elinsky said she's motivated by more than extending her college career. "I'm a senior, but it doesn't really feel like that. I think we have such potential for our team, and I would hate to see it go to waste." And in a 3-0 win over High Point at WakeMed Soccer Park, she ensured that didn't happen. (

Thought for the Day
Some guys do stuff that doesn’t show up on (the stat) sheet. That's what makes a complete team. You have to have a couple guys who don’t know their numbers and will put their body on the line for the team at any time.
