Maryland, Rutgers in serious talks about move to Big Ten Conference
Maryland and Rutgers are in advanced discussions with the Big Ten about joining the conference, multiple sources have told Yahoo! Sports. Nothing is official yet, but tentative plans for announcements from the two schools that they are leaving their current leagues could come early next week, sources said.

Raymond Felton’s dazzling play leaves Lin in rear view
Jeremy who? Raymond Felton has made New York Knicks fans forget Jeremy Lin very quickly. That was his aim on Day 1 when he said he had a “big, big chip on my shoulder’’ to prove last season’s nightmare in Portland was an aberration and he was a worthy Lin successor. So far, mission accomplished. (New York Post)

Things Rasheed Wallace Said, Did, And Pointed At During Last Night’s Knicks Game
Rasheed Wallace: lover, fighter, hilarious training camp invitee, and talker of the best trash in the NBA. On Tuesday, he yelled everything at everybody after they did anything. Here is your courtside Sheed experience for a game in which he scored 13 points, blocked three shots, and built on his immense lead for most technical fouls of all time. (Deadspin)

A closer look: UNC 78, Long Beach St. 63
With their first road game (and road win) under their belts, the Tar Heels (3-0) should head to the Maui Invitational with a bit more confidence. Marcus Paige, in particular, showed more of what he can do; after shooting 4-for-17 over his past two games, he was 6-for-10 (including 3-of-6 on 3-pointers) at LBSU. (ESPN.com)

Record crowd can’t push The Beach past UNC
This new group of 49ers played as if they had been playing together for years Friday night, giving a record crowd of 6,912 at the Walter Pyramid every bit the show they wanted to see. While the final score of 78-63 may not have been in favor of the 49ers, it was a contest in which the score was not truly indicative of the play. (Fox Sports West)

Hot and Cold From Deep
The combination of James Michael McAdoo’s assertiveness and North Carolina’s 3-point shooting over the final 20 minutes was too much for Long Beach State to withstand. “If our team is making shots and James Michael is doing what he does, I think we could be unstoppable, basically, and teams wouldn’t know how to guard us,” Hairston said (Inside Carolina)

Lucas: Taken With Confidence
On the road, in front of a hungry crowd, with the momentum of the game tilting on the fulcrum of his shot, Marcus Paige didn’t just take the shot. He took it with confidence. Swish, 12-point lead, ballgame. Suddenly, Carolina looked like a team that had done this before, even if they hadn’t. (GoHeels.com)

UNC Basketball: Can James Michael McAdoo Lead Tar Heels to Victory in Maui?
James Michael McAdoo led UNC basketball to an impressive win last night at Long Beach State, but with the Maui Invitational on the horizon, Tar Heel fans have to ask, can the highly touted power forward lead his team through the tournament to victory? (Bleacher Report)

UNC Basketball: Early Offense Will Help Heels
