A history of Duke-UNC violence
The Tar Heels and Blue Devils have a long history of on-court scuffles, dating back as far as 1961's infamous Larry Brown-Art Heyman brawl. Even the teams' managers have gotten involved recently. Here's a collection of videos and photos documenting the bad blood between the rivals.
Leslie McDonald's Night to Remember
There is no doubt that senior Leslie McDonald has struggled the past couple of games. No one will deny that. Not even McDonald himself. But he nonetheless was eager to get the ball in the early minutes of Thursday night's game against arch-rival Duke---his last game in the Smith Center against the Blue Devils.
UNC to debut 1982-inspired Nike uniform on Saturday
Inspired by one of the most celebrated moments in UNC basketball history, the Nike Hyper Elite Dominance uniform pays tribute to the 1982 NCAA championship game when Michael Jordan hit a jumper from the wing with only 17 seconds remaining to put UNC on top 63-62, sealing the championship. The uniform features the iconic Tar Heel logo and color-blocking worn by the 1982 team.
Previewing Wake Forest
The Tar Heels only get about 36 hours to recover from their exhausting rivalry battle, as Wake Forest comes to Chapel Hill on Saturday. UNC enters the game having won eight in a row, while WFU has lost six in a row. Tip-off at the Smith Center is set for noon and will be televised by the ACC Network.
Tale of the Tape: UNC-Wake Forest
Looking back at the first game against Wake Forest, there hasn't been a lot of shift in the numbers. UNC's offense is a little worse, Wake's is about the same. UNC's defense is slightly better and Wake's has gotten worse. All the other numbers are still fairly close except for the most important one. Since Wake beat UNC on January 5th, UNC is 9-3 while the Demon Deacons are 3-8.

Roy Williams offers glimpse into intensity that lifted UNC past Duke
“I just love kids that keep playing,” Roy Williams started, “just keep coming at you, just keep coming at you, just keep coming at you.” The first “keep coming at you” was accompanied by an marked rise in intensity. The second was almost growled through gritted teeth. The third ended a bit abruptly, as if he suddenly remembered his audience. It was an honest look into a side of the coach his players know well.
An Electric Night For Win Over Duke
There's never anything quite like the UNC-Duke game, but this year something was different. The building was filled to bursting with fans that were forced to wait through snowstorms and postponements for this game. And they were hungry, hungry enough to make the Smith Center electric. "(The energy) was unbelievable," sophomore Marcus Paige said.
Atlanta Hawks to waive Antawn Jamison
Antawn Jamison will not be a Hawk. The Hawks will waive the forward Friday, one day after he was obtained at the trade deadline from the Clippers. The Hawks also signed forward Cartier Martin for the remainder of the season. Martin was waived Thursday hours before his second and final 10-day contract expired to clear a roster spot for Jamison.
Video: Re-live UNC's victory over Duke from pre-game to aftermath
The Tar Heels kept their winning streak alive at the Dean Smith Center on Thursday, February 20. Students stormed the court and celebrated with chants, dances, and the alma mater.
Five Thoughts From UNC's Win Over Duke
In the second half, UNC employed a series of defensive changes against Duke using the 3-2 zone, man-to-man and, for the first time this season, a 1-3-1 look. While the Tar Heels had used the 3-2 some this season with a fair amount of effectiveness, the 1-3-1 came out of nowhere, or did it?
The Revolving Door of Unlikely Tar Heel Heroes
Critics can say what they want about UNC's 2013-14 squad, but this team just gets it done. There isn't one player that is truly dominant night in and night out. And there probably isn't a 2014 lottery pick on this team, even if James Michael McAdoo chooses to forego his final year of eligibility. But these kids have heart. And with every game, it seems there is another hero.
Michael Jordan wins appeal in endoresment case
Companies now will have to be careful how they congratulate the achievements of athletes with whom they don't have endorsement deals. On Wednesday, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Illinois ruled that Jewel Food Stores did not have the right to publicly congratulate Michael Jordan on his Hall of Fame induction in an ad featuring its logo and the supermarket's motto.
Tar Heels' big win creates questions
For thousands of North Carolina fans, Thursday’s 74-66 win by the Tar Heels over Duke was an answered prayer. But looking at it from another angle, the outcome created more questions than answers on some fronts. To wit: Is Leslie McDonald really back? McDonald’s 21 points on 9-for-12 field goal shooting against Duke arguably was the best performance of his college career.
