Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Guilford

Let's get this out of the way first: it's very difficult to tell anything from a game like Friday night's 99-49 win over Guilford. Carolina is, as Roy Williams is certain to say, "more gifted and talented" than Guilford. The Tar Heels held a whopping 60-18 edge on points in the paint and physically dominated the Quakers. (

Jackson, Coleman Join Paige On Sideline For Exhibition

Marcus Paige, Justin Jackson and Justin Coleman will all be sidelined for the UNC men’s basketball exhibition game Friday against Guilford. Paige has a broken bone in his right hand and is out for 3-4 weeks. Jackson was not feeling well after practice on Thursday and is being held out as a precaution. He is expected to return to practice on Monday. Coleman will not be playing for an undetermined period of time. (

Justin Jackson: "I think everyone is really locked in this year"

Roy Williams is counting on individual players improving to help the team be better than last season's inconsistent squad. Players like Isaiah Hicks, Kennedy Meeks, Brice Johnson, Joel Berry, Justin Jackson, and Theo Pinson are all expected to make significant leaps. Even Joel James could be a force for UNC this year. The Tar Heels are deep. That is what is so exciting. (Carolina Blue)

Q&A with UNC Coach Roy Williams, Part V

What limitations do you think you need to overcome?How well are we going to shoot the ball from the three-point line? Who did we add to our team that’s a great shooter that’s going to change that? The answer there is no one. So every individual has got to do that better. Who is going to take care of the basketball and have a better assistant/error ratio? (Inside Carolina)

Guilford set for scrimmage against No. 1 North Carolina

They’re college students who play basketball, not the other way around. None of them is enrolled on an athletics scholarship because there’s no such thing in NCAA Division III. They know they’re the longest of long shots, long before tipoff of a game they have virtually no chance of winning. Guilford College will scrimmage mighty North Carolina at 7:30 p.m. today at the Smith Center in Chapel Hill. (Greensboro News & Record)

UNC Player Profile: Kennedy Meeks

Kennedy Meeks has slowly moved away from the basket as he has spent more time in the UNC program, expanding his range as he developed. If he can pull opposing centers away from the basket, that opens up a host of options for the wing players and cutting guards as well as allows Brice Johnson to have more room to operate on post-ups.

UNC basketball among top 10 projected offenses this season

2. North Carolina - This projection was for the Tar Heels with senior guard Marcus Paige, who broke his non-shooting hand on Nov. 3 and is out 3–4 weeks. As long as he recovers on schedule, Carolina should bring an elite offense into ACC play and the NCAA tournament. They have the best combination of talent and experience of any ranked team. (Sports Illustrated)

Kennedy Meeks reveals two losses that still irk the Tar Heels

As the Tar Heels look to achieve their goal of bringing another National championship to Chapel Hill, the team is motivated from a pair of losses they suffered last season that they will use as motivation. ESPN’s Andy Katz caught up with junior center Kennedy Meeks as part of his 3-Point Shot series to talk about the upcoming season. (Keeping It Heel)

NBA could've been a reality for Packers linebacker Julius Peppers

It was Feb. 6, 2001, against Wake Forest when Ronald Curry, the Tar Heels quarterback/point guard, threw that lob to Julius Peppers, a forward/defensive end. Matt Doherty isn’t sure if that’s the moment he knew Peppers could play in the NBA, but even today, his former coach said the 6-foot-7 Peppers was a legitimate NBA prospect in the making. (
