  • Let’s be honest, holding the ball for 14 seconds before scoring isn’t exactly the Four Corners of old. But it was a nice gesture to begin North Carolina’s 89-60 victory over Georgia Tech. Unfortunately, the Marcus Paige to Brice Johnson backdoor play in the Four Corners happened so quickly that I’m not sure everybody was keyed into it. As a result, it sounds as if Coach Roy Williams wasn’t real […]

  • Pittsburgh shot a blistering 65 percent to handle North Carolina 89-76. The Panthers were just too hot for a Tar Heels team that has lost three of four and has been grieving the loss of former Coach Dean Smith, who was buried two days earlier.

Of all the things I’ve heard about legendary UNC coach Dean Smith since his passing Saturday night, the one that stuck with me was journalist Peter Gammons, who like myself was sports editor of the Daily Tar Heel, when he wrote, “Dean Smith cared about every person he knew.” Even though one would think I was a bother as a whipper-snapper budding journalist, Coach Smith took time to answer my […]

When you shoot 57 percent from the floor, 74 percent from the line and outrebound the other team by 14, you normally win and Carolina did as the Tar Heels won 79-68 at Boston College. But this was a five-point game with less than three minutes to play. Boston College missed several three pointers in a row. Another better team might have hit a couple of them and taken the […]
