Progress Report: Grading the Tar Heels

Marcus Paige: A. Paige has been the most consistent contributor this season for North Carolina. He is the only player to be a real threat from three, shooting 38.6% from behind the arc. Paige is a clutch scorer (averaging 17.5 points per game), a leader, and the best player this season for the Heels. (Carolina Blue)

Carolina Appreciating Value of Every Game as Duke Game Looms Large

The surging North Carolina men’s basketball team, winners of seven straight, will take center stage Thursday in prime time for a 9 p.m. tipoff in the Smith Center against arch rival Duke. One of the keys to the game will be how the Tar Heels fare from the free throw line. Head Coach Roy Williams says he was pleased with junior James Michael McAdoo’s improvement from the foul line. (

Lucas: Man In The Middle

Ask Kennedy Meeks about virtually any improvement in his game, and you're almost certain to get the same answer. At various times this year, he's offered the following responses: Kennedy, why do you think the Tar Heels have played with the much-talked about sense of urgency over the last month? "I think it's practice." (

Unlikely sources contribute to UNC victory

As if more proof was needed that North Carolina is a different team than it was earlier in the season, Monday’s victory over Florida State provided myriad examples. Obviously there’s no way to prove it, but I believe the Tar Heels would have folded a month ago had they started off a game as sluggish as they did against Seminoles. (

Familiar ref provides ECU coach Jeff Lebo with a college flashback

The profile was familiar. So was the steely look in his eyes. Scott Smith is the spitting image of his famous father, North Carolina coach legend Dean Smith. Only instead of standing on the sidelines working the refs, Scott was the one wearing the striped shirt at Minges Coliseum for East Carolina’s game against Texas-San Antonio. (Wilmington Star News)

Kennedy Meeks has big game at FSU

The Tar Heels found themselves down by as much as 15 points in the first half of their 81-75 win against FSU Monday. But Kennedy Meeks' basket at the end of the half only made it a one-possession game. Meeks had faith. Following the game, he responded with, “Oh yeah,” when asked if he thought UNC had the momentum to mount a comeback. And that UNC did. (Daily Tar Heel)

Golden State Warriors unlikely to trade Harrison Barnes

The calls are coming in for Harrison Barnes as the Thursday trade deadline nears. But Golden State isn't doing much more than listening. While fans might be disappointed, the Warriors aren't biting. General manager Bob Myers would deal Barnes only in a blockbuster that would significantly improve the roster, according to league sources. (San Jose Mercury News)

Tar Heels forced to find new options in comeback against FSU

The Tar Heels’ shots weren’t falling. A 1-for-7 start. Then 2-for-13. They were hurried, uncomfortable in Florida State’s zone defense. Suddenly, UNC was down 21-6. The trusty formula didn’t compute. Still, somehow, the Tar Heels found an alternative solution. Somehow UNC cobbled together a victory, the 300th ACC victory of coach Roy Williams’ career — a 81-75 defeat of Florida State.
