UNC Basketball: Highs and Lows of the Season So Far

“What a season it has been for the 2013-14 North Carolina Tar Heels. At this point, it feels like UNC has already seen a season full of highs and lows, just three games into the ACC slate.

Can Carolina turn its season around and have a shot at the conference title? We won’t know until it runs through the ultra-competitive gauntlet that is the new-look Atlantic Coast Conference. But things certainly aren’t looking up for the Tar Heels.”

State, UNC Add Large Groups of Early Football Enrollees

You have to scroll through the NC State stuff, but some good information about UNC’s early enrollees.

“North Carolina and N.C. State have both welcomed a bumper crop of incoming freshmen football players who graduated high school early to get a head start on their college careers.

The Wolfpack has added seven new scholarship players and a pair of preferred walkons for the newly started spring semester while the Tar Heels have brought in five January enrollees.”

UNC, NC State seek to rekindle baseball magic in meeting at DBAP

An old baseball link, but still a good read about UNC and NC State’s Duel at the DBAP.

“North Carolina and N.C. State played perhaps the greatest college baseball game in state history last May in the ACC tournament at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park – a game that lasted 18 innings, and nearly six hours, and ended in a 2-1 victory for the Tar Heels.

They met again in Omaha, Neb., twice, in the College World Series, but when the ACC released its 2014 baseball schedule, it didn’t include a regular-season series between the Tar Heels and Wolfpack. Mike Fox, North Carolina’s coach, and N.C. State coach Elliott Avent knew that wouldn’t stand.”

Tar Heel Basketball Notebook

“Roy Williams continues to identify tempo as one of the key issues facing his 2014 Tar Heels. “I really love pushing the tempo,” he said Friday afternoon. “I really do. We haven’t gotten into that nearly as much as I want to. In the last week and a half, we’ve been focused even more on trying to run even more.””
