Yeah, Heels won, but they're still a work in progress

Unlike football, there are no official divisions in ACC basketball. That doesn’t mean the league this season can’t be broken down into three distinct five-team groups. Instead of the Atlantic and Coastal, call them the Good, the Bad and the Mediocre. Because of the makeup of the league, it’s possible to put together a better-than-average looking record without having beaten...

Tar Heels see progress in win over rival NC State

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- North Carolina came into the game against in-state rival N.C. State with bigger goals in mind, including keeping its NCAA Tournament hopes alive. Of course, N.C.
