Roy Williams, UNC in full March mode

Roy Williams is in full March mode. So, apparently, is his team. After UNC had worn down Pittsburgh Thursday in the ACC tournament quarterfinals, someone asked Williams whether he thought the Tar Heels had benefited from a lighter conference schedule in winning the regular season title and the No. 1 seed in the tournament over Virginia and Miami.

Tar Heels To Face Notre Dame In ACC Semis

Top-seeded UNC will try to advance to the ACC Tournament championship game for the fifth time in six years when it faces fourth-seeded Notre Dame on Friday at 7 p.m. in Washington, D.C. The game will be a rematch of last year's ACC Tournament final, a 90-82 Notre Dame win. Dan Shulman, Jay Bilas, and Allison Williams will call the game for ESPN. (

Notre Dame will only seem like an underdog to North Carolina

Mike Brey has never been one to mince words. Given the chance to answer a question with brutal honesty or tempered care, he will always go for brutal. So when asked -- delicately -- to describe how he believes his team is perceived, the Notre Dame coach chuckled almost to himself and then delivered his unvarnished opinion. (

Marcus Paige ready for big finale

This has been an up and down season for Marcus Paige, who scored a season-high 30 points at Florida State on Jan. 4 then endured a rugged four-game stretch when he was 5 of 35 from the field. “Now I am a senior and it is slowly coming to an end,” Paige said. “The more we play the more I get to play. This is our chance to build momentum for the rest of March.” (The Gazette)

Playing with an edge, Joel Berry has become an offensive threat

Joel Berry has been exceptionally solid this season and is playing his best ball right now. After a 21 point performance in a loss to Virginia, Berry scored 20 points in UNC's 88-71 ACC tournament win over Pittsburgh on Thursday. "I picked up my intensity on defense which helped myself get going and make a play," Berry said after the win. (Carolina Blue)

Hoops math points to UNC title

UNC doesn’t have a warrior in the Tyler Hansbrough mold or a point guard with the skills of Ty Lawson. There isn’t a 3-point marksman to rival Wayne Ellington. But when the Tar Heels open tonight’s semifinal round against defending champ Notre Dame, they should be able to take advantage of the same deep bench that helped make the ’08 and ’09 teams so successful.

Preview & Prediction: ACC Semifinals - UNC vs Notre Dame

Notre Dame sees itself as the foil to the Blue Bloods of the ACC. Notre Dame is 3-2 versus the Tar Heels, 5-1 versus Duke since entering the league, and has already won an ACC Championship. It might be time to put Notre Dame back in its place, and UNC is positioned to do so. Prediction: UNC 77, Notre Dame 71. (Tar Heel Blog)

Experienced Tar Heels to face experienced Irish

With five games to go in the ACC regular season, I evaluated the schedules of the top six teams in the league. Notre Dame had the easiest path having to play only one of the top six. The Irish limped home with a 2-3 record in that stretch. But there's something about the ACC Tournament that has brought the defending champs back to life. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Is North Carolina or Notre Dame the underdog in tonight’s ACC semi-final game?

You don’t often think of UNC as an underdog, especially playing a team lower ranked. But you can bet Roy Williams is reminding his players about losing to Notre Dame in the ACC championship game last year and losing to the Irish earlier this year. His Tar Heels face the Fighting Irish again in tonight’s 7 p.m. ACC Tournament semi-final game. (WNCN)

Tar Heels can't afford slow start against Fighting Irish

Joel Berry's play is the type that the team says it will need against Notre Dame in Friday's rematch of the 2015 ACC Tournament Championship. “I’m the point guard," he said. "They look for me to lead sometimes, for someone to get that intensity going. We always need that one person Sometimes we need everyone at the same time.” (WRAL Sports Fan)

North Carolina-Notre Dame Preview

Top-seeded North Carolina (26-6) has floated around the top 10 in the national rankings all season and ultimately outlasted the rest of the league's powers for its 30th regular-season title. However, Notre Dame (21-10) won the only matchup between the two last month and can beat the Tar Heels in the tournament for a second straight year. (Yahoo! Sports)

Tale of the Tape: UNC-Notre Dame

UNC gets another crack at Notre Dame, a team the Tar Heels have lost three straight against including last season ACC Championship game in Greensboro. Given Notre Dame's style of play and how the Irish have approached UNC over the past two seasons, playing defense without fouling will be crucial along with turning the Irish over. (Tar Heel Blog)
