Is it time for the Knicks to give a long look to Isaiah Hicks?

Isaiah Hicks has been on a rampage in the G-League for the Westchester Knicks which begs the question: Should the ‘big’ Knicks give him a shot? During his senior year at UNC, Hicks posted career highs across the board including 11.8 points per game, 5.5 rebounds per game while shooting 58 percent from the field and 78 percent from the line.

ACC basketball attendance rankings

In 2017, Syracuse, Louisville, and North Carolina ranked second, third, and fourth nationally in attendance across college basketball. The trend is holding true again this season, as the Orange, Cardinals, and Tar Heels, in that order, rank first through third in the ACC in home attendance and total average attendance per game in early non-conference play.

How UNC Basketball Recovers During Off Days

The college basketball season takes a toll on players' bodies, making day-to-day recovery and care essential for on-court success. UNC's non-conference schedule this season in particular has put added importance on the work of the team's trainers and strength and conditioning staff. From Nov. 29 to Dec. 6, UNC played four games in those seven days. (Inside Carolina)

Carolina Insider Podcast: Looking Ahead After Exam Break

Tuesday's episode of the Carolina Insider podcast discusses the Tar Heels on their exam break, the challenges of playing in the ACC and looks ahead to Sunday's tough game at No. 20 Tennessee.

Theo Pinson challenged to lead Tar Heels defense

When preseason projected starter Cameron Johnson returns around the new year, the Tar Heels will add yet another sweet-shooting offensive weapon for Atlantic Coast Conference play. But for Roy Williams, that’s all the more reason to emphasize the defensive end of the floor. Williams challenged senior swingman Theo Pinson in particular in this regard last week. (Wilson Times)

Danny Green Joins Elite NBA Company with Career Milestone

Former UNC star Danny Green is playing in his ninth NBA season - eighth with the San Antonio Spurs. He's been a consistent starter for the Spurs in the past six seasons, and his on-the-court contributions year in and year out have put him in elite company. The 6-foot-6 guard is averaging 9.5 points, 1.1 steals and 1.2 blocks per game this season. (Inside Carolina)

Jalek Felton is starting to emerge just when the Tar Heels need him most

The numbers are good. Jalek Felton has 24 points, five 3-pointers and eight assists the past two games. But UNC's freshman guard knows numbers are not enough when it comes to impressing his uncle, Raymond Felton, who led the Tar Heels to the 2005 national title, and his coach, Roy Williams, who has a knack for grooming standout point guards.

How a longtime fan and a former UNC basketball star built an unlikely friendship

Larry Miller was taking a break in his backyard when his past came calling, bearing two lattes and a coffee. In short order he was participating in a book project that traces the arc of his basketball career.

Roy Williams Live: Seventh Woods Out At Least Four Weeks

Roy Williams does not expect Seventh Woods to return to North Carolina's rotation until next month at the earliest while the sophomore point guard recovers from a stress fracture in his right foot. “He’s going to be out quite a while,” Williams said. “We’ll have to wait and see how it looks. I know he’ll be out for four weeks. He may even be on crutches for four weeks.” (Inside Carolina)

Chansky’s Notebook: Grading The Tar Heels

After 10 games the Tar Heels stack up pretty well with the 2017 national champions, actually doing a bit better in some categories. The record is the same, 9-1, coincidentally facing Tennessee in their 11th game each season. Last year, the Heels beat the Vols in the Smith Center; this Sunday they go to Thompson-Boling Arena and face Rick Barnes’ best Tennessee team. (Chapelboro.com)

Tennessee looking forward to sold-out atmosphere against No. 11 UNC

It’s North Carolina’s first trip to Thompson-Boling Arena, but the Tar Heels aren’t a new adversary for these Vols. Tennessee went to the Dean Smith Center in Chapel Hill last December and and led by as many as 15 points. Robert Hubbs set the tone with a team-high 21 points, but it wasn’t enough. North Carolina rallied to take a late lead. (GoVols247)
