While the NBA slate was average, with six games in all, the UNC connection last night was quite small, with just one team having a current North Carolina player on their roster. But as we all know, if all fifteen or just one of the former Tar Heels are in action, the next day ISPORTSWEB will have its “North Carolina in the NBA” recap about it. So, without further ado, let’s check out the only game from 11/03/13… The one and only game with a touch of carolina blue last night was the game between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the New York Knicks (-4) in what was the first of a pair. The game was played at the mecca of basketball, Madison Square Garden in front of a sold out crowd of 19,812 and it was televised by MSG. For the home squad it was point guard Raymond Felton, who started and played a total of 38 minutes. In that stint the floor general scored eight points (3 for 12 ~ 0 for 3 ~ 2 for 2) to go with a game high 12 assists, a pair of rebounds, a team high three steals, a block and three turnovers as well as having a pts differential of -17. In what was an upset, in this one it was Minnesota winning this one by nine points, defeating New York by the final of 109 to 100. The loss drops the Knicks to 1 and 2 on the year (1-1 at home) and will be back in action on 11/05 when they host the Bobcats. For more information on the New York Knicks check out their page on ISPORTSWEB. And there it is, the full run down for the games of 11//13 with former UNC Basketball players in them. Make sure to come back tomorrow for the next edition of the “North Carolina in the NBA” recap. And as always, check back with ISPORTSWEB for more things Carolina!

UNC Player Profile: P.J. Hairston

G P.J. Hairston, Junior, 6-6, 220 lbs Perhaps the biggest, and assuredly the most asked question pertaining to the 2014 Tar Heels is to what effect will the "Summer of P.J." have on both the team, and the player. With respect to the former, it is clear that Hairston will miss a (yet to be determined) number of games; and in these games, Carolina will certainly be a different...

North Carolina Football: The Recap… NC State

As I said in my preview of the North Carolina (3-5, 2-3) vs N.C. State (3-5, 0-5 ACC) game, it was a lot more than just sixty minutes of playing time. It was for the bragging right of which school owns the state, it was for which program can show its recruits why they picked the right university, and most of all, it was for one squad to keep its hopes alive for the post season. ...

Knicks Poor Start Costs Them the Win

By Max Marcilla Knicks 100 Wolves 109 Boxscore Summary: The score was close, but the game was ugly, as the Knicks fall to 1-2 on the season. The Knicks came out sluggish, continuing their recent trend of turnovers, missed shots, and blown defensive assignments, resulting in a 40-19 first quarter in favor of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Carmelo Anthony and Iman Shumpert got in early...
