UNC guard Brandon Robinson in two-car accident Saturday night; in a release, UNC said he was not serioulsy injured and received no citation.
The monumental win for the women’s basketball team — a 66-60 upset of No. 9 N.C. State, which entered the game 14-0 — was no one player’s doing. It was about as egalitarian as a basketball game can get. And that’s exactly how the Tar Heels, who moved to 12-3 on Wednesday night, wanted it to be.
If any of UNC’s seven losses this season truly cast a shadow of doubt on the team’s NCAA Tournament chances, it was this one. Michigan, Ohio State, Gonzaga and Virginia are all ranked teams. An optimist could twist Wofford into a feel-out game, Cole Anthony's first on the sideline, and Georgia Tech into one of those early blips ACC teams so often have when conference play begins. After Wednesday's loss to Pittsburgh, Roy Williams stays next to Dean Smith on the NCAA’s all-time Division I wins list.
In a 73-65 triumph, the Panthers shot 23 of 52 from the field, and nine of 22 from 3-point range, in the second half to again keep head coach Roy Williams from passing Dean Smith in all-time NCAA Division I wins.
In a 96-83 loss, the Tar Heels (8-6, 1-2 ACC) never led, trailed at one point by 24 points and allowed the Yellow Jackets to shoot 59 percent from the field. Junior forward Garrison Brooks put up a valiant 35 points in defeat.
On behalf of four decades of DTH sports reporters — many of whom, I’m sure, also had their hides saved by Dave Lohse at some point — I’d like to say thank you.
If the rim looks like an ocean when you’re hot, UNC’s 2019-20 team is staring at a puddle right now. The Tar Heels had plenty of shortcomings in a 56-47 loss at Virginia, but their total lack of an outside game stuck out like a sore thumb. North Carolina shot just 1 of 14 from deep.
Most emblematic of No. 7 North Carolina’s 74-49 loss to Ohio State was the steady stream of fans leaving upper and lower decks alike far before game’s end, as the Smith Center transformed from a hive of last-day-of-classes energy to the polar opposite.
In a late-night ACC-Big Ten Challenge game, the No. 7 North Carolina men’s basketball team was blown out, 74-49, by No. 6 Ohio State in its third straight game against a top-15 team.
Wednesday marks the 19-year anniversary of Brendan Haywood’s triple-double against Miami on Dec. 4, 2000: 18 points, 14 rebounds and a school-record 10 blocks. Two games later, against Buffalo, Jason Capel matched his teammate with 16 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists on Dec. 17. In 109 seasons of North Carolina basketball, nobody’s done it before that 13-day stretch. Or since.
