    The North Carolina Tar Heels used a 14-1 run late in the second half to retake, and hold the lead, for a win against the Kansas State Wildcats in the CBE Hall of Fame Classic Championship.

    Justin Jackson again paced UNC with 22 points in the 80-70 victory and three other starters (Kennedy Meeks, Brice Johnson, Theo Pinson) were also in double figures scoring.

    Box score

    Justin Jackson notched his first double-double as a North Carolina Tar Heel one game after setting a career high in points as UNC beat the Northwestern Wildcats 80-69 in a CBE Hall of Fame Classic semifinal.

    Brice Johnson also had 10 points and 11 rebounds and Theo Pinson continues to lead the team in assists, JP Tokoto-style, adding 8 in this game.

    North Carolina will face the undefeated Kansas State Wildcats (so many wildcats) in the final Tuesday.

    Lowlights: UNC can’t pass tough road test against UNI, loses 67-71 


    Box score

    Justin Jackson is indeed alive, and setting a career high with 25 points, but the North Carolina Tar Heels couldn’t hang with the Northern Iowa Panthers, losing 67-71 in Cedar Rapid, Iowa.

    Let’s just blame Marcus Paige on what was supposed to be his homecoming game. Paige is obviously still sidelined with a hand injury.

    Kennedy Meeks and Brice Johnson are One-Arm Swingers 



    Roy Williams apparently got upset with the North Carolina Tar Heels basketball team while watching game tape before their showdown against Wofford.

    So heated in fact, he told Brice Johnson and Kennedy Meeks they’d be “one-arm swingers – trash men” if they don’t get it together.

    Here is the front court duo as garbage men.

    Highlights: Tar Heels defeat pesky Terriers 78-58 


    Box score

    It definitely wasn’t always pretty but the North Carolina Tar Heels pulled away in the second half to beat the Wofford Terriers 78-58.

    Brice Johnson, Kennedy Meeks and Joel Berry all finished with 16 points a piece with Johnson adding 14 rebounds. Justin Jackson continues his slow start going 2-8 from the field and missing all three of his three point attempts.

    Here is a picture of “White Dinosaur” Kris Lang

    According to his wikipedia page, Kris Lang was affectionately referred to as “White Dinosaur” by the Venezuelan team he signed with in 2013.

    How many other former North Carolina Tar Heels could go by “White Dinosaur?” The answer may surprise you…

    Also in the pic Kris Lang is wearing the UNC Jordan Team Elites which were just the dopeness.

    End of Kris Lang update.

    Weekend Wrap – Welcome back basketball! 


    Yes, it’s finally happened. The time of year when our web browser history starts changing over from fantasy football  articles to college basketball statistics. And you might have heard that a certain team is ranked No. 1 in the country. (Side note: if UNC is ranked No. 1 for one more week it will pass Kentucky for third on the all time list of No. 1 rankings)

    Here’s what happened over the weekend to hopefully set up a memorable season.


    Veterans Classic in Annapolis, MD 

    UNC 91, Temple 67

    The neutral site, absence of Marcus Paige and Friday the 13th vibe had Rafters HQ a little on edge. The past couple of years, UNC has always managed to drop an inexplicable game early. Temple is a great program, and with it being the first game of the year, nerves were expected to play a role as well. They did – at least early on. To start the game, the Heels missed 7 of 9 shots and fell behind the Owls while making some mental errors handling the ball.

    After they cooled down, however, Kennedy Meeks took over and the guards persuaded us that they could handle the load with Paige out. At one point UNC hit six straight threes. I’m not sure we’ve ever been able to print that in the history of this blog.

    Theo Pinson and Joel Berry were the new starters in the lineup that included Brice Johnson, Meeks and Justin Jackson. Meeks was the star of the game and finished with a career high 25 points to go with 11 rebounds. Nate Britt and Berry chipped in 15 and 14 respectively. Jackson, who many think could be the superstar this team needs to get over the hump, went 2-7 for 4 points, missing all of his 3-pointers and free throws. Luckily in this game, he wasn’t needed to contribute much, but it was a disappointing debut considering how he finished the year last season.


    vs. Fairfield

    UNC 92, Fairfield 65

    This game was similar to the Temple game in that the Heels started out slowly before eventually pulling away. The slow start lingered, however, until the early portion of the second half. Past woes cropped up again in the form of free throw shooting. The Heels finished a paltry 18-32 from the stripe (56%). They also allowed the Stags to hang with them on the glass. UNC finished with 45 rebounds to Fairfield’s 39.

    The point guards once again stepped up in the scoring department with Britt tying his career best with 17, and Berry adding 15 of his own. Brice Johnson had a double double, but was up and down throughout the game. Ironically his saving grace was his free throw shooting (8-10).

    For the second straight game, Justin Jackson was nowhere to be found. His 11 points were a little misleading. He again missed all of his three-point attempts and somehow played 23 minutes without grabbing a single rebound. Jackson started slow last year, so we won’t go into defcon panic mode just yet, but it’s a little concerning that he’s had lackluster performances against two lower tier opponents.

    What’s next?

    Lots of games! The Heels will take on Wofford as their second opponent as part of the CBE Hall of Fame Classic Wednesday night in Chapel Hill. Saturday they travel to Northern Iowa for a true road game against an NCAA tournament team from last year. Then Monday they play Northwestern in the elimination portion of the CBE, followed by a Tuesday game against either Missouri and Kansas State.

    Highlights: UNC, Britt handle Fairfield 92-65

    Highlights: UNC over Temple 91-67 in season opener 


    Box score

    Weird watching highlights not focused on UNC.

    Anyway, the North Carolina Tar Heels took care of the Temple Owls at the Veterans Classic in Annapolis, Maryland.
