Best Games Of 2014-15: No. 4

No. 4: No. 18 Carolina 72, No. 5 Louisville 71 - Men's Basketball, Jan. 10, 2015; After entering the 2014-15 season with loads of potential, Marcus Paige and the Carolina men's basketball team endured a start-stop first two months. The Tar Heels were 11-4 and 1-1 in the ACC coming off a disappointing 71-70 loss to Notre Dame, and Paige was dealing with a variety of foot and leg ailments. (

Ty Lawson arrested for DUI

Ty Lawson was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Los Angeles early Tuesday morning, the Denver Nuggets point guard's second DUI arrest in less than six months. California Highway Patrol Officer Jennifer Cassidy says Lawson was driving at a high rate of speed before being pulled over around 2 a.m. local time Tuesday on state Route 101 in Hollywood. (

Basketball Schedule Look: Temple

The Tar Heels are more talented, deeper, and can excel in many more ways than Temple, but this isn't a gimmie. Temple is the kind of team that can surprise anyone in the nation on a given night. That said, UNC should pull away. Good opener for a change. Temple coach Fran Dunphy is a very good coach whom Roy Williams will praise a lot leading up to and after the game. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Top 5 UNC wings in the Roy Williams Era: No. 4

Danny Green did everything for UNC in his four-year career in Chapel Hill that culminated with the 2009 National Championship. A "stat-stuffer," the 6-foot-5 New York native was a solid defender, a consistent three-point scorer, and an above-average rebounder while at North Carolina. UNC's sixth man for much of his career, Green excelled when given extra minutes as a starter during the 2008-2009 season. (Carolina Blue)

Harrison Barnes hits the books with young readers

Though he was not hoisting the NBA championship trophy above his head, Harrison Barnes was still able to make quite an impression on the children at the Ames Public Library Monday. The inaugural Harrison Barnes Day provided a full schedule of events, but he made sure to set aside some time to visit with young readers in the Harrison Barnes Reading Academy. (Ames Tribune)

Chansky’s Notebook: Jim Delany’s Journey Remarkable

But Delany’s professional journey is the most amazing. He was a reserve for Dean Smith’s Tar Heels who was mad at the coach for not playing him more. He slipped into law school and made it through, worked in the state attorney general’s office, as an NCAA investigator and became commissioner of the Ohio Valley Conference at age 31. (

"Late Night with Roy" Set For October 23

The 13th annual “Late Night with Roy Williams” is scheduled for Friday, October 23rd, at the Dean E. Smith Center, one night before the Tar Heel football team hosts the Virginia Cavaliers at Kenan Stadium. Late Night with Roy is the traditional start to UNC’s college basketball season. This year’s event will again feature basketball scrimmages, music, dances and skits by the 2015-16 men’s and women’s basketball teams. (

Top 5 UNC wings in the Roy Williams Era: No. 5

Reggie Bullock played three seasons at North Carolina from 2010-2013 before being drafted in the NBA's first round after his junior season. A 6-foot-7 shooting guard, Bullock had great size as a long distance specialist. He was able to defend three positions effectively and rebound well for his position. During the 2012-2013, the Kinston native averaged 13.9 points while shooting 43.6% from three. (Carolina Blue)

Warriors’ James Michael McAdoo is a Summer League standout

James Michael McAdoo is gliding through Summer League play as a cut-above talent. Supremely confident in his options around the hoop, he strikes the look of a forward who goes where he pleases. He drew some excited shouts from the crowd Sunday night. McAdoo finished with a game-high 17 points and made his only three-point attempt. (San Francisco Gate)

Reggie Bullock believes he'll click with the Pistons

Reggie Bullock faced a crowded backcourt with the Los Angeles Clippers. He faced a crowded backcourt with the Phoenix Suns. So he should be used to that situation with the Detroit Pistons. But Bullock, recently acquired from the Phoenix Suns, said he thinks it might finally click for him with the Pistons. "I'm very excited about being here," Bullock said. (Detroit Free Press)

Harrison Barnes: The NBA champion who's mastered the postgame party (video)

Until three weeks ago, 23-year-old Harrison Barnes had never tried alcohol in his life. Although he was clearly getting along just fine without it, the Golden State Warriors forward vowed to celebrate with an adult beverage if his team won the NBA championship, and he did just that. In the wake of Golden State's victory and the resulting parties, Barnes told Yahoo Sports that he hasn't really felt the need to make up for lost time in the drinking department. (Yahoo! Sports)

Rasheed Wallace and the most iconic pre-game dance in NBA history (video)

There are moments from that era I will never forget. One of my favorite single moments though is watching Rasheed Wallace dance and pump up the team right before every game. It was funny, it was intense and it even fired me up (I would attempt this dance, to less fanfare, before some of my basketball games in high school). (Detroit Sports Nation)

Monday is Harrison Barnes Day in Ames

As if winning an NBA Championship is not enough, former Ames High standout Harrison Barnes will receive his very own day. Ames Mayor Ann Campbell declared Monday, July 13, to be “Harrison Barnes Day” in honor of all the success Barnes has had at the collegiate and professional level. This comes two weeks after he and the Golden State Warriors hoisted the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy. (Ames Tribune)

Trail Blazers' Ed Davis 'plays hard, has an entertaining style'

Moments after he verbally agreed to a 3-year, $20 million contract with the Trail Blazers, Ed Davis promised to provide infectious energy and give everything he had, every night. "I'm going to go out and grind," the 26 year-old power forward told The Oregonian. "I'm going to grind every night. I'm one of those energy guys. I'm going to bring it every night. That's my main thing." (

Brandan Wright ready to provide extra push to Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies introduced their newest free-agent acquisition Friday, one day after signing the 6-foot-10 forward. The Associated Press previously reported Brandan Wright had agreed to a three-year deal worth about $18 million. Wright said he was offered a little more by other teams, but the opportunity to play for a perennial playoff team in his home state was too tempting to resist. (
