Lucas: Making A Connection

It’s the first week of classes at Carolina, which means students are going through all the normal introductory activities. You know the type—drinking from the Old Well, having that first night out back on Franklin Street…and getting dunked on by Seventh Woods. About that last one: you’ve by now probably seen the video of Woods dunking on a fellow student. (

From father's murder, Wayne Ellington brings story of healing to Miami Heat

Wayne Ellington brings more than 3-point shooting to the Miami Heat. He brings perspective. He brings tears. He brings hope. That's the part you may not know. That's the part he wants to make sure you know. "There's no question that I'm still working through it," he says quietly but expressively, subject matter too raw to ever fully comprehend.

Jerry Stackhouse Pokes Some Angry Holes In The Story That Michael Jordan Used To Sing To Him

If you pay attention to basketball then you know Michael Jordan has always had a soft spot for Jerry Stackhouse.

Wayne Ellington: The painful arc of becoming an anti-gun activist

Even the national championship he won with Roy Williams at UNC hadn’t prepared Wayne Ellington for this moment.

With the ACC going to a 20-game conference basketball schedule in 2019-20, North Carolina coach Roy Williams told ESPN’s Andy Katz the annual UNC-Kentucky series may be a thing of the past. “My feeling right now is to play our conference schedule, play one exempt event where you have really good teams, and play home games to help out your revenue.” (Lexington Herald-Leader)

James Michael McAdoo's sole focus this offseason has been on bettering himself, hoping that when his name is called, he’s ready to make an impact. “The biggest thing is really just working on my game, working on my individual skill.

Joke’s On You, Harrison Barnes is a Gold Medalist

All I am trying to say is that if you are having fun joking and cracking on Harrison Barnes for not getting playing time in Rio, the joke is on you. Barnes was one of twelve Americans to win an Olympic gold medal in basketball and he (along with all Dallas Mavericks’ fans) should be proud of it. (The Smoking Cuban)

Bret Strelow: Kris Jenkins' shot also my cue to exit stage

I was fortunate to cover Hall of Fame coaches, star players and incredible games. I'll remember helping hold open the Smith Center doors as a woman walked toward the exit pushing Dean Smith, who was seated in a wheelchair. Noticeably weak two years before his 2015 death, Smith raised his index finger and pointed it in an appreciative manner, thanking us for the assist. (Fayetteville Observer)
