Video: Stilman White - The Lone UNC Player With Elite 8 Experience

ACC Digital Network's Jeff Fischel talks to White and assistant coach Steve Robinson about the point guard stepping up for UNC when they needed him most. View Video...

UNC 101, Indiana 86: The Storylines

Hello, Mr. Paige! If there was one underlying hope for UNC in the NCAA Tournament it was the Marcus Paige of old would show up again. That happened and it was a beautiful sight. Paige used the early part of the first half to remind us why it is that his jersey will wind up in the rafters when his career finally comes to a close. (Tar Heel Blog)

Roy Williams, Players Post-Indiana Quotes

Marcus Paige: "To be one game away (from the Final Four) is extremely exciting. And to have to beat a great Indiana team to get there, it feels really good. We're in a good place mentally right now. Using the short turnaround to recover physically and then it's for all the marbles. Notre Dame is going to be ready to play." (ASAP Sports)

UNC-Notre Dame rubber match to decide Final Four berth

UNC and Notre Dame played two weeks ago for a berth in the ACC tournament final. The stakes will be higher when they square off Sunday in an all-ACC regional final. The Tar Heels and Fighting Irish are one win away from advancing to the Final Four. This will be the rubber match. UNC lost 80-76 at Notre Dame on Feb. 6 but exacted revenge with a 78-47 rout in an ACC tournament semifinal. (Fayetteville Observer)

Paige makes sure Tar Heels roll into East final with win over Indiana

Marcus Paige made certain that No. 1 North Carolina wouldn’t be done on Friday against No. 5 Indiana and sent the Tar Heels into the Elite Eight for the first time in his career with a 101-86 win. It started 33 seconds into the game, when Paige curled up to the top of the key from the wing, took the ball and saw some space. He fired. Swish. (Greensboro News & Record)

Indiana Coach, Players Post-UNC Quotes

Indiana Coach Tom Crean: "North Carolina played outstanding. If they play like that, even remotely close to that, then they're going to be very, very hard to beat. And I hope they do. Because Roy deserves it. And they shot the ball -- first thing Roy said coming off the court is they shot the ball extremely well. Obviously we didn't shoot it nearly as well as we're capable of."

Humbling end to IU season, Ferrell's college career

Indiana’s season, ugly at both ends and sometimes beautiful in the middle, ended in humbling fashion Friday night — a 101-86 Sweet Sixteen loss to North Carolina. A game anticipated partially as one last meeting between senior point guards Yogi Ferrell and Marcus Paige swung to the Tar Heels (31-6) early, thanks to Paige’s white-hot shooting. (Indianapolis Star)

No. 1 UNC runs away from No. 5 Indiana to earn Elite Eight bid

The Tar Heels put together one of the best offensive performances of the entire season, scoring 52 points in the first half en route to a comfortable victory over a strong Indiana team. Marcus Paige, in particular, found his stroke, going 6 for 9 from distance. When the Tar Heels play to their full potential, no one in the country can stick with them. (Sports Illustrated)

Hoosiers never had a chance against dominant Tar Heels

UNC has America's most dominant inside game and, after that early arc flurry, it was on full display, its massive front line scoring in the lane, at the rim, on lob dunks and from the foul line. The Heels' big men Brice Johnson and Kennedy Meeks punished the Hoosiers as they did Temple on opening night at the Naval Academy and so many teams since then. (Philadelphia Daily News)

North Carolina runs away from Indiana, 101-86, in Sweet 16

Marcus Paige scored 21 points and North Carolina continued its offensive prowess, moving to the Elite Eight for the 20th time since 1975 with a 101-86 victory over Indiana on Friday night in the East Regional. The top-seeded Tar Heels (31-6) will meet sixth-seeded Notre Dame on Sunday, determining one of two guaranteed ACC spots in the Final Four. (Associated Press)

North Carolina's offense puts on show against Big-Four averse Hoosiers

Indiana's offense was a handful. It didn't matter, because the Hoosiers had no solution for top-seeded North Carolina's relentless attack on the Wells Fargo Center nets. The Tar Heels shot 51.6 percent overall and 55 percent from beyond the arc in a 101-86 victory and advanced to play sixth-seeded Notre Dame on Sunday at 8:49 p.m. in an East regional final. (Fayetteville Observer)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Indiana

What a time for Carolina's perimeter shooting to suddenly make a reappearance. The Tar Heels hit their first seven three-pointers on the way to building a first half lead that was as big as 16 points. Much of that fuel was provided by Marcus Paige, who hit his first four three-pointers (tying Michael Jordan on the all-time UNC scoring list) and had 14 first-half points. (

For North Carolina, Joel Berry is a quiet star

Here’s what we’ve heard about regarding North Carolina this season: Marcus Paige's shooting slump, Brice Johnson's emergence, the enigma that is Justin Jackson, the rotating crowd of talent in the frontcourt. Here’s what we’ve heard little about: Joel Berry. Slow and steady, after all, might win the race, but it’s not terribly interesting. (
