Photo: A Trio Of North Carolina Basketball Alums, NBA Players Worked Out Together In Miami

If North Carolina put together an NBA team featuring only former Tar Heels, the squad would be quite competitive. That’s, of course, not allowed.  Instead, the various North Carolina alums playing in the NBA have to compete against one another on separate teams.

UNC extends record home winning streak against Clemson

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- North Carolina has experienced a lot of firsts this season, and not the good kinds. The Tar Heels were 1-4 in the ACC for the first time under Roy Williams, for one. Their 45-point effort in a loss at Syracuse was a shot-clock era first in futility, for another. It logically follows, then, that Clemson (13-6, 4-3 ACC) had a chance to finally end The Streak.

John Henson’s Shirt Cares Not For The NCAA

There’s apparently no love lost between Milwaukee Bucks forward John Henson and the NCAA, if Henson’s shirt in his latest Instagram upload is any indication. At least Henson got to compete for a championship when he was with the Tar Heels. With the Bucks? Not so much. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

North Carolina Basketball: A Look at John Henson

When John Henson came to Chapel Hill three years ago the optimists kept saying to take a good look at him as it would be his only year donning the caroline blue. The pessimists kept talking about his lack of build, as they kept pointing out that “he was too skinny”. Being a realist I can say that in the three seasons under Roy Williams the power forward bulked up some, but more...
