Q&A With Justin Jackson & Isaiah Hicks

Isaiah Hicks on how to emulate Brice Johnson’s senior year improvement: “[I want] his mindset. Every time he went out there, Brice looked at every rebound like it was his, every time he touched the ball he was going to score. That’s the biggest thing that changed Brice. Not working hard off the court, he was just mentally into it.” (

Vince Carter will turn 40 years old in January, and he still has more bounce than half the League. They don’t call him Half Amazing for nothing. Carter says he wants to play two more seasons in the NBA. Why not? (SLAM Online)

UNC Has Its Own Air Jordan 31

It's not often that a new Air Jordan silhouette comes out without the UNC Tar Heels getting their own player exclusive version of the shoe. That holds true for the Air Jordan 31, the latest model in the line. The official Instagram account of UNC's basketball program shared the first photo of the shoes on Friday morning.

Alexander Julian remembers redesigning UNC's basketball uniforms

As a famous clothing designer, a Chapel Hill native, the son of clothing store owners and a UNC alumnus, it’s not hard to see why Alexander Julian has been chosen time and time again to uphold the authentic color and style of UNC clothing. At the Kemp Plummer Battle lecture Thursday, Julian said he was the one who chose the official Carolina blue for athletic uniforms. (Daily Tar Heel)

At Late Night with Roy, Tar Heels crank up competition while recruiting targets take in the scene

“A majority of the time, it’s all about the dancing and stuff, but I like how we changed it up a little bit this year and did some more competition stuff with basketball,” guard Joel Berry said. “I think that brings out the best of us because, at the end of the day, we all like to compete.” The White squad bested the Blue team 40-37 after finishing regulation tied at 36.

UNC Late Night Impressions

This was a revised version of Late Night with Roy. Sure, there were some typical dance routines – including members of the team dressed as milk men – but for the first time players competed in skills competitions. There was a three-point shootout (which was won by Nate Britt), a two-man shooting contest and a dribbling competition (Inside Carolina)

The blue/white scrimmage feature balanced scoring from UNC's star players. Justin Jackson led the way for the white team with 13 points and five rebounds while Isaiah Hicks was good for 12 points (a perfect 5-for-5) for the Blue team.

What you missed at Late Night With Roy

UNC's freshmen showed their potential to make an impact as Brandon Robinson fed an alley-oop pass to Tony Bradley for the first bucket of the game.

Though Berry dominated from behind the arc, he missed a 3-pointer in the final seconds of overtime to give the White team a 40-37 win. (Daily Tar Heel)

John Henson states case with impressive showing

John Henson is the forgotten man when it comes to talking about the Milwaukee Bucks center rotation. His role remained unclear despite his four-year, $44 million contract extension that kicks in this fall. That could be changing if the 6-foot-11 Henson continues to play as well as he did Wednesday night in the Bucks’ 101-83 preseason loss to the Indiana Pacers. (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
