That freshman was Kendall Marshall, and that team, for the next year and a half was the high octane car he was the driver of. Game after game the...

Dexter Strickland rips on NC State

North Carolina senior guard Dexter Strickland is not the most well-liked man in Raleigh right about now.

North Carolina Basketball: Next year’s team won’t have the pressure this one had

About a year ago Chapel Hill was going insane when word came out that Tyler Zeller, John Henson and Harrison Barnes were all coming back to play once again under head coach Roy Williams. From that moment forward the expectations of a season ending in New Orleans with another national championship began to elevate with each passing day. And while making no excuses for this squad,...
