History of the NCAA Titles Leaderboard

History of the NCAA Titles Leaderboard

Carolina is three wins from NCAA title #6, which would break the current tie with Indiana and a certain other Triangle school who does blue all wrong and put UNC alone in third place all-time behind UCLA and UK. The count through 2016: 11 UCLA (1964, 1965, 1967-1973, 1975, 1995) 8 UK (1948, 1949, 1951, 1958, 1978, 1996, 1998, 2012) 5 UNC (1957, 1982, 1993, 2005, 2009), Indiana (1940, 1953, 1976, 1981, 1987), Duke (1991, 1992, 2001, 2010, 2015) 4…

UNC vs. Duke: Tempo-Free Season Box Scores

UNC vs. Duke: Tempo-Free Season Box Scores

Carolina is 134-109 against Duke. The Devils are our most-played and most-lost-to opponent (State is a distant second with 77 wins), and our third most-beaten foe (Virginia and Clemson are tied for fourth at 131, so one or both of them is liable to overtake Duke before K retires.) One way to segment the series history is: From       To         W    L    W% 1/24/1920  2/11/1928   17    2  89  2/2/1929   2/4/1956   30   38  44 2/24/1956  2/27/1960   11    2  85  3/4/1960   3/4/1966    4   12  25  1/7/1967  12/2/1977   26    6  81 1/14/1978  2/29/1980    5    5  50 12/5/1980   3/3/1984    8    1  89 3/10/1984   2/3/1993   10   12  45  3/7/1993   3/8/1998   10    2  83 1/27/1999   2/9/2005    2   15  12  3/6/2005   3/8/2009    7    2  78 2/10/2010   2/9/2017    4   12  25            Total      134  109  55 We’ll try to salvage a season split Saturday a…

UNC Vs. Pittsburgh: Tempo-Free Season Box Scores

Carolina is 11-3 against Pitt. The Panthers handed UNC its first-ever NCAA Tournament loss (in its first-ever NCAAT game, in only the third-ever NCAAT) in 1941. The Heels returned the favor on their way to the 1981 title game. We beat them each season from ’94-’97, then didn’t see them again until they joined the ACC. Roy’s boys will try and make it an even dozen wins Saturday at noon. Here are tempo-free stats for the teams, their opponents, and…

UNC vs. Louisville: Tempo-Free Season Box Scores

It’s a little surprising sometimes how seldom big-time programs have played each other. Carolina is 11-5 vs. Louisville, including 3-1 in the NCAA Tournament and 1-0 in the ACC Tournament. UNC lost the first meeting in 1929, then went 11-3 from 1972 until that ACCT meeting two years ago, before dropping the game last year. Round 17 is Wednesday at 9:00 in Chapel Hill. Here’s a look at the tempo-free stats of the teams, their opponents, and their rotation players….

Pinson vs. Division I: The Stat-Stuffing Showdown

Pinson vs. Division I: The Stat-Stuffing Showdown

Last month, Adrian posted a comparison of Theo Pinson’s amazing productivity in points, rebounds, assists, and steals this season to box-score-busting years by past Tar Heels. I thought I’d take a look at how #1’s stat line stacks up to players nationwide this season. Notes: All raw data used here comes from RealGM.com, a site I find user-friendly, well-organized, thorough, and always up to date (they’ve updated Carolina’s stats the same day as a game sometimes this season.) Stats.ncaa.org has…
