UNC's 11-win season resonates on signing day

This time a year ago, football coaches at North Carolina were selling hope. After an 11-3 season, a massive defensive turnaround and an ACC Coastal Division title, the Tar Heels have something concrete to pitch to recruits. The effects of that upswing already could be felt on Wednesday, national signing day for college football. (Greensboro News & Record)

Tyler Zeller focused on staying in Celtics rotation

From Day One starter, to reserve, to seldom-used backup, to situational player logging several weeks of DNP-CDs (did not play-coaches decision). There isn’t a single role that Tyler Zeller hasn’t experienced being in this season for the Boston Celtics. That’s in part why he is cautiously optimistic about his play of late. (CSN New England)

Harrison Barnes Q&A: Warriors' death lineup, success of small ball and more

Harrison Barnes isn’t the first guy you think of when it comes to the success of the Golden State Warriors, who are well on their way to becoming one of the best NBA teams of all time. That’s Stephen Curry, of course. Barnes probably isn’t the second, third, or fourth guy, either. But just because his contributions aren’t well known doesn’t mean they’re not important.

Midseason Review: Joel Berry II

Winning the job in the offseason, Joel Berry came into the season as UNC's starting point guard. Given an opportunity to shine with the injury to Marcus Paige, Berry played well running the team without their senior leader at the helm. With Paige back in the lineup, Berry thrived. He is now the second leading scorer for Carolina and a solidified starter. (Carolina Blue)

Midseason Review: Kennedy Meeks

Meeks began the season with an even slimmer figure and it paid off during the first stretch of the season, as Meeks consistently provided solid production in most of the first nine games. The junior then missed the next seven games with a knee injury. In the six games since Meeks' return he has only scored in double figures once and has been outperformed by fellow forward Brice Johnson. (Carolina Blue)

Boston Celtics notes: Jae Crowder calls Tyler Zeller 'the best professional I ever saw'

With a smile on his face, Tyler Zeller sat in front of his locker and joked he isn't used to reporters crowding around him. After a breakout season last year, when he started for a playoff team, the center has collected dust in the dungeon of forgotten 7-footers. (

UNC needs improved guard play to bounce back from Louisville Loss

North Carolina had a difficult time getting the ball in the basket again on Monday night, but this time it was different. It couldn’t afford that type of performance against a talented Cardinals squad in a hostile environment. Most notably, UNC wasn’t going to steal that type of win without quality guard play. And on Monday, there were more questions than answers in the backcourt in the 71-65 road loss. (Today's U)
