UNC in early discussions to renovate, or replace, Smith Center
Officials at North Carolina have been engaged in more serious discussions about major renovations to the Smith Center, and the university is considering the possibility of building a new men’s basketball arena, UNC athletic director Bubba Cunningham said on Monday...

Brice Johnson Providing A Spark
Brice Johnson's energy on the court is undeniable. He's been a big part of a short-staffed 2013-14 Carolina basketball team, providing an off-the-bench spark in the first few games of the season. It's his emotion and energy—the familiar scream following...

GoHeels Spotlight: Luke Davis

Tar Heels Bitten by Belmont
Belmont’s 3-point shooting has carried it to six NCAA Tournaments in eight years. On Sunday, it led the Bruins to one of the biggest upsets in the history of the Smith Center. J.J. Mann (28 points) hit three 3s in...
