Q&A with John Swofford - Charlotte Observer
This has been a busy few weeks for ACC Commissioner John Swofford. First, he had to deal with the news that Maryland would depart the conference for the Big Ten. Only a few days later, the ACC remained at 14 teams by adding Louisville (with the upcoming additions of Syracuse and Pittsburgh). This weekend, Swofford is in Charlotte for Saturday's ACC's football championship game between Florida State and Georgia Tech at Bank of America Stadium. He answered several questions from the Observer's David Scott.

Tar Heel soccer's unbeaten streak at home ends with loss to Indiana - Charlotte Observer
North Carolina's three-year home unbeaten streak in soccer ended Friday night, and the stakes couldn't have been higher. Indiana got a 60th-minute goal from Eriq Zavaleta, and the 16th-seeded Hoosiers weathered a furious late-game rally by the ninth-seeded Tar Heels to post a 1-0 victory in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Men's Soccer Championship.

Williams, UNC face former assistant - Durham Herald-Sun
North Carolina coach Roy Williams will be slightly conflicted when the Tar Heels face Alabama-Birmingham today at the Smith Center (6 p.m., ESPNU). The Blazers are coached Jerod Haase, who spent 13 seasons on Williams' staff at Kansas and at UNC before taking over UAB in March.

Hoosiers eliminate Heels in NCAA quarterfinals - Durham Herald-Sun
Ninth-seeded North Carolina fell to No. 16 seed Indiana 1-0 in Friday night's quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament at Fetzer Field, meaning the Tar Heels will not reach the College Cup for the first time since 2007.

UAB vs. UNC: What to watch - ESPN.com
North Carolina guard Leslie McDonald said his team still hasn't gotten the bad taste out of its mouth. "But it's much better than yesterday, and the day before then, and the day before then,'' the redshirt junior said Friday. "We're experiencing a lot of things, and we're going through a lot of things, so all we can do is take it day by day."

ACC Power Rankings - ESPN.com
With Duke's schedule and Virginia Tech's new coach, who would have guessed that the Blue Devils and Hokies would be the two remaining undefeated teams in the league right now? Here's this season's first set of ACC power rankings, based on a myriad of factors including how teams have played lately and the foes they've faced.

Tar Heels learning as they go - Raleigh News & Observer
On the plane ride home, Leslie McDonald and his teammates sat in silence, lost in thought. "Very quiet," McDonald, a North Carolina junior guard, said of the trip back after a humbling 83-59 loss at No. 1 Indiana on Tuesday night. "That's all I can say. It was very quiet. It was a time for everybody to think to themselves and get all their thoughts in. If you were mad, you were mad." The Tar Heels had good reason to be mad. They lacked toughness in Assembly Hall, failed to execute offensively and defensively and bickered among themselves during some of the game's more difficult moments.

DeCock: At UAB, Haase working from UNC playbook - Raleigh News & Observer
If Jerod Haase ever needed a reminder that he was no longer at North Carolina or Kansas, two of the blue-blood programs of college basketball, he got it at the Omaha airport. After Haase's Alabama-Birmingham team lost at Creighton on Nov. 14, the Blazers were stuck in the airport for more than 12 hours as they waited for their commercial flight home. The Tar Heels and Jayhawks almost always travel by charter. In his first UAB road trip, his first road trip as a head coach, they got to the airport when it was still dark. By the time they left it was dark again.

UNC guard Reggie Bullock: A lot of people pointing fingers - Raleigh News & Observer
You'll recall that after North Carolina's 83-59 loss at Indiana on Tuesday night, James Michael McAdoo, the Tar Heels' sophomore forward, said he and his teammates had to work better together on the court. Off the court, McAdoo said, the Heels are close. But that closeness hasn't translated, he said, into chemistry where it matters most.

A month into college basketball: What have we learned? - Wilmington Star News
Mike Krzyzewski isn't a big fan of preseason polls. That's why he was less than thrilled this year when, for the first time, he and his fellow ACC basketball coaches were asked by the league to make their own predictions.
