Carolina Blue | Jarrett Corder: After battling injury all season long, Elijah Hood broke out against Georgia Tech on Saturday. Now healthy, he rushed 12 times for 168 yards at 14 yards per carry.
The Fayetteville Observer | Sammy Batten: The Tar Heels won’t be able to match last year’s win total, but could the 2016 squad still be the better team? Larry Fedora says the two teams are very similar, but he stopped short from choosing one over the other.
Raleigh & Company | R.L. Bynum: Sophomore Kenny Williams has been a lot more comfortable and confident this year. He will surely see an increase in playing time with Theo Pinson out with a broken foot.
Inside Carolina | Greg Barnes: Sophomore forward Luke Maye elevated his level of play during UNC’s exhibition with Pembroke on Friday. He managed to score 15 points with eight rebounds and five assists.
