When asked if he's ever had to face an injury bug this vicious, Williams kept it simple. "No," he said.
When the North Carolina field hockey team trumped Boston College in the ACC Tournament final on Sunday, it preserved a second-straight perfect season. Now, starting Friday, the Tar Heels will look to finish the job.
A former Villanova defensive back now filed a class-action lawsuit against the NCAA and many member schools and accused them of violating minimum-wage laws by refusing to pay players.
It would’ve been easy for the Tar Heels to let one get away from them in Trask Coliseum. Luckily, though, they had someone who had been there before – literally.
The No. 9 North Carolina men's basketball team (2-0) won its first road game of the season against UNCW (1-1) on Friday, 78-62. First-year guard Cole Anthony led the way with 20 points, while graduate forward Justin Pierce and junior forward Garrison Brooks both posted 18 points.
Anthony scored 23 after halftime to key a 32-13 run in the Tar Heels’ eventual 76-65 win. His 34 points were a game-high, and a record for a UNC debut, eclipsing Rashad McCants’ 28 points in 2002. A better way to frame the game, though: after ditching the Rec Specs, Anthony made 10 of 18 shots, including six of nine three-point attempts.
The North Carolina men's basketball team defeated Notre Dame in the team's season opener, behind a record-breaking 34 points from first-year guard Cole Anthony.
Junior big man Garrison Brooks is on the verge of leading North Carolina this season as the team’s only returning starter. Brooks, the Tar Heels’ defensive anchor from a year ago, is also UNC’s leading returning scorer with 7.9 points per game. He’ll look to incorporate six new faces, including grad transfers Christian Keeling and Justin Pierce, as well as five-star first-years Armando Bacot and Cole Anthony, into the fray. How did we get here?
North Carolina basketball was already going to have to lean on a number of new faces on the wing this season; then, senior guard Brandon Robinson went down. His absence will present even more opportunities for a few newcomers – graduate transfers Christian Keeling and Justin Pierce – plus Andrew Platek on the wing early in the season.
"To be honest, my reaction for the first hour after was just kind of like, 'Whoa, what's really going on here?'" Sagula said. "I was really kind of numb to it emotionally."
