by Sharon Thorsland One down, three to go. North Carolina beat Boston College last night in impressive fashion at the ACC Tournament, setting up tonight’s matchup with Virginia in the quarterfinals. It will be the third time the teams have faced off this season – the Cavaliers won the first matchup while the Tar […]

by Sharon Thorsland It’s round two of college basketball’s best rivalry as North Carolina hosts Duke at the Dean Dome on Saturday night. For the second straight match up, neither team is ranked in the Top 25. But this game always delivers no matter the records, and the Tar Heels certainly have a lot riding […]

by Sharon Thorsland It’s a quick turnaround for North Carolina, as they travel to Tallahassee to take on Florida State tonight following an impressive win over #6 Virginia on Saturday night. The Tar Heels played one of their best games of the season against the Cavaliers, in large part because Pete Nance actually played like […]

by Sharon Thorsland It’s about time – North Carolina finally got a win, even though it wasn’t a pretty one. The Tar Heels pulled out a close one over Notre Dame Wednesday night for just their second win in their last seven games. That improved them to 17-11 overall and 9-8 in ACC play. But […]

by Sharon Thorsland It’s college basketball rivalry weekend and there are certainly plenty of good match-ups on tap. But none is bigger or better than North Carolina-Duke. This is the best rivalry in college basketball and arguably one of the best in all sports. If you’re a Tar Heel fan like me, you’re likely still […]
