UNC Themed Groom's Cakes

A love for all things North Carolina sports doesn't go away when you graduate college or get married. Three recently-wed Tar Heel fans (and a player) took fandom and Carolina pride to a new level with these North Carolina themed groom's cakes. One is from a former Tar Heel player you might know. Marcus Paige was married last weekend in Chapel Hill. (Inside Carolina)

Addressing the Tar Heels lack of size, depth in front court

Much of this year’s low-post success will land on the shoulders of incoming North Carolina freshmen big men Garrison Brooks, Brandon Huffman and Sterling Manley. Will their performances on the court allow Roy Williams to keep them, and their size advantages, on the floor for extended minutes and allow the Tar Heels to play their traditional offense?

Four Corners: First Steps Of 2017-18 Season Coming Soon

It's been more than four months since UNC beat Gonzaga to win the 2017 NCAA championship, but for many of the Tar Heel players and coaches the memories are still quite fresh.

The future of the Tar Heels’ backcourt is bright

Seventh Woods and Jalek Felton will play behind Joel Berry this season. The shortage of bodies down low could mean we see these three playing together at times. Woods showed flashes last season of the athleticism that made him a high school internet sensation. Felton possesses similar athleticism, and Coby White has been tearing it up at the high school ranks. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC Basketball Looking For Post Answers

Three of the four players largely responsible for UNC's dominance on the boards - Kennedy Meeks, Isaiah Hicks and Tony Bradley - have moved on. Their absence provides two of the biggest questions entering the season - will one of the freshmen be able to contribute immediately? And, if not, will Roy Williams use a less-conventional approach and play a '4-out, 1-in' style? (Inside Carolina)

Michael Jordan once swiped Davis Love III's driver and broke the head off

Michael Jordan, in a way, can take credit for Davis Love III's driving success for much of the 1980s and 90s. With this week's PGA Championship being played at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, PGATour.com's Helen Ross chronicled how Charlotte's most famous athlete, Jordan, turned into the golf fanatic he is now. Love had a major hand in it. (Golf.com)

Cameron Johnson Impressing New UNC Basketball Teammates

When Cameron Johnson announced his intent to transfer to North Carolina in June, UNC's senior leaders hoped Johnson could fill some of the void left by Justin Jackson's departure.

Lucas: Chance Meeting A Reminder For Joel Berry

Joel Berry is accustomed to getting second looks. He's the starting point guard for a national championship team at UNC. He's on national television 30 or more times per year.
