Season in review: Joel Berry II
Once Joel Berry returned from an injury that kept him out of seven games between January and February, he emerged as a quality back-up point guard. Roy Williams tended to go with Berry over sophomore Nate Britt during the last stretch of the season. Berry proved to be a better offensive threat, taking the ball to basket and knocking down threes. The freshman shot 50% (10/20) from three over the last 10 games.

ACC draft entrants leave UNC on top
The North Carolina Tar Heels will enter the 2015-2016 season as the likely preseason favorites to win the ACC.

UNC will return four of five starters from last season along with every important reserve
Brandon Ingram's comments show impact of UNC's NCAA troubles
UNC spokesperson Steve Kirschner said the school has not received a notice of allegations from the NCAA. So it seems that Ingram misspoke, but it’s not clear what exactly where he got the specific date of April 17. It's also worth pointing out that even if UNC did have notice of the NCAA's allegations, that's not a conclusion to the investigation, but just one step of a long-running process.
Danny Green wants to be more at home on road
Spurs’ 27-year-old shooting guard Danny Green is nothing if not mercurial. He didn’t earn the blogosphere-created nickname “IcyHot” for nothing. This season, the home/road splits were a gulf. Inside the AT&T Center, Green connected on a sizzling 47 percent of this 3-pointers during the regular season. On the road, that dropped nearly 12 points to 35.4 percent.
Rape charges against former UNC basketball player Melvin Scott dropped

No, UNC Didn't Receive a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA
A minor firestorm erupted Tuesday night regarding a statement five star recruit Brandon Ingram made regarding something he'd been told by Roy Williams about the NCAA's investigation into Tar Heel athletics.

Theo Pinson Preparing for Big Opportunity
A big opportunity awaits UNC wing Theo Pinson next season. But first he will have surgery to repair the foot injury that limited his freshman year. Pinson showed flashes of what made him a McDonald’s All-American in the class of 2014, before missing 14 of the Tar Heels’ final 19 games with a fractured fifth metatarsal in his left foot -- an injury he also sustained during his junior year of high school.
Season in review: Nate Britt
Britt is a back-up point guard and will likely continue in that role for the remainder of his UNC career. In the 2014-2015 season, Britt played in all 38 games (starting three) and averaged 15.3 minutes per game. He is a solid back-up, but will never be a big scorer or amazing offensive contributor. Last season, Britt scored in double figures seven times including 17 points against Syracuse.
John Henson continues his vendetta against the color red
John Henson is known for his happy-go-lucky demeanor. More often than not a wide, innocent smile adorns his baby-faced visage. Henson doesn’t seem to hate many things....except the color red. As CJ Leslie’s therapist can attest, Henson delighted in emasculating those who chose to attire themselves in red.
