UNC basketball: Observations from Monday

North Carolina seemed to finally break out offensively in their win against Syracuse Monday night, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Carolina will play Louisville, Virginia, and Duke in 3 out of their next 5 games and will need to have their offense clicking if they have any chance at winning. Luckily, Roy Williams had a better game plan today and showed more creativity...

North Carolina needed a “Paige-turner”

Send to Kindle Even though the Louisville Cardinals generally controlled Saturday’s one-point loss at North Carolina, the Tar Heels needed a “Paige-turner” in more ways that one.  This season has been an enigma so far for UNC.  The Tar Heels play really good basketball in stretches, but have never put 40 minutes together or come up strong in the clutch. Like any good novel...

UNC basketball: Areas for Improvement

With the Tar Heels sitting at a disappointing 5-2, let’s take a look at some areas they can improve on. 3-point Shooting There are 311 D-1 basketball programs in the nation and North Carolina currently ranks 296th in 3-point field goal percentage with a sizzling 28.8%.

North Carolina Point Guard Marcus Paige Trolls A Duke Fan On Twitter With Children’s Book Reference

There are not a lot of negatives to being a star collegiate athlete, but dealing with fans of opposing teams on Twitter is one of them.

Marcus Paige’s Sister Posts Heartfelt Message About Her Brother After UNC’s Loss

The North Carolina Tar Heels, like many of their ACC colleagues, won’t be marching onto the Sweet 16 this season after falling to Iowa State in an absolutely incredible game Sunday afternoon.

Paige scored 35 points in the game but the most important of those points came with time close to expiring in overtime. After a TJ Warren free throw to give NC State a 1 point lead, Paige had 7 seconds to do his magic. He took...
