UNC Tar Heels Basketball Summer Stats Series: FREE THROW PERCENTAGE
With Hubert Davis taking over the reins of the North Carolina basketball program and bringing in Jeff Lebo as an assistant, both of whom are top-20 all time at UNC in career free throw percentage, it stands to reason that the Tar Heels would shoot a high free throw percentage as a team under their watchful eyes. Indeed, the 2021-22 Tar Heels shot the second-highest team free throw percentage in Carolina history, finishing at 76.4%. The only team in Carolina history to shoot a higher percentage is the 1983-84 Tar Heels, who hit 78.3% of their free throws. Part of the reason for UNC’s success last season is that three of the starters – Leaky Black, Caleb Love, and RJ Davis all shot over 80% from the line. This week’s Tuesday Trivia question: There are six Tar Heels who have made 87% or more of their free throws in a single season (minimum 50 makes). Who are they? The answer: 6. Darrell Elston | 1973-74 | 87.1% (81-93) 5. Steve Hale | 1984-85 | 87.6% (85-97) 4. Marcus Paige | 2013-14 | 87.7% (128-146) 3. Jeff Lebo | 1987-88 | 87.8% (86-98) 2. Joel Berry | 2017-18 | 89.3% (108-121) 1. Shammond Williams | 1997-98 | 91.1% (133-146) Follow the show: Locked On Tar Heels (YouTube) Locked On Tar Heels (LinkTree) Locked On Tar Heels (Twitter) Locked On Tar Heels (Instagram) Isaac Schade (Twitter) Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

UNC Football 2022 Fall Camp Update - Week 1: QB Battle | Antoine Green Injury | Defense

UNC Football 2022 Fall Camp Update - Week 1: QB Battle | Antoine Green Injury | Defense
North Carolina football’s fall camp is in full swing. We are less than three weeks away from the Tar Heels’ Week 0 game against Florida A&M. At this point, the biggest question Carolina fans are asking is: Who will be named starting quarterback, the one to replace Sam Howell? Will it be Jacolby Criswell? Will it be Drake Maye? Host Isaac Schade believes Maye will ultimately be tabbed as the starter. Listen in to find out why. Unfortunate injury news over the weekend as 5th-year senior Antoine Green left Saturday’s scrimmage with an apparent collar bone injury. We’re still waiting on more definitive details. Green started all 13 games last year and is the downfield threat looking to spread the field for Josh Downs to operate underneath. He isn’t Dyami Brown, but is a reliable veteran presence on a team that needs someone to balance Downs’ game-changing skill set. The WR room has more depth now. Be on the lookout for who will join Downs and Justin Olson. Names to know are JJ Jones, Gavin Blackwell, Ty Chapman, and impressive freshman Andre Greene. Can the TEs help fill the void until Green returns? Kamari Morales is the known quantity, but there’s lots of hype around Bryson Nesbit. We heard two words over and over again from Tony Grimes and Power Echols last week in their post-practice comments: fundamentals and communication. These are the foundations upon which the defense believes it will turn over a new leaf under Gene Chizik.

Wrapping up the GG Jackson saga | Where does UNC Basketball turn next in the class of 2023?

Wrapping up the GG Jackson saga | Where does UNC Basketball turn next in the class of 2023?
Let’s face it, the North Carolina Tar Heels family is done talking about GG Jackson, but it’s healthy and helpful to understand what this situation teaches us about the new landscape of college basketball. What is the North Carolina angle in this scenario? What about GG Jackson – will he still be a top player in the class of 2022, even after his reclassification? Why does it make sense to reclassify into a likely tougher draft class? How does NIL play into everything? The biggest question is, “Where does Hubert Davis turn next in the class of 2023?” With Jackson’s decommitment, Simeon Wilcher is the only recruit in the class for UNC. Sports Illustrated’s Director of Basketball Recruiting, Jason Jordan, joins host Isaac Schade to share more about some of the players Coach Davis has already offered (TJ Power, Zayden High) and to propose some more names on the radar (Trey Parker, Jizzle James, and Freddie Dilione).

2022-23 North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball Roster Preview: Caleb Love
1w ago
2022-23 North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball Roster Preview: Caleb Love
It's the tenth week of the 2022-23 North Carolina Tar Heels men's basketball roster summer preview series. We have gone through the freshmen (Seth Trimble, Jalen Washington, Tyler Nickel, Will Shaver), the transfer (Pete Nance), the sophomores (D’Marco Dunn, Dontrez Styles), and now we finish the juniors, having already talked about Puff Johnson & RJ Davis. Today we set our sights on Caleb Love, a 6'4", 200-pound guard from St. Louis, Missouri. In his sophomore campaign, Love added at least five percentage points each to his field goal percentage, his three-point field goal percentage, and his free throw percentage. The sky is the limit in Love’s junior season as he and Davis combine to lead the Tar Heel backcourt. With the addition of freshman guard Seth Trimble, Love will hopefully be able to bring his minutes down from his team-high 34.1 per game last season into the high 20s or low 30s, allowing him to be even more efficient in the time he does play. Host Isaac Schade and Coach Pac Kilby take you through Love's game as well as expectations for the upcoming season.

UNC Tar Heels Basketball Summer Stats Series: REBOUNDING

UNC Tar Heels Basketball Summer Stats Series: REBOUNDING
The Roy Williams-era Tar Heels rebounded at or the near top of the NCAA on an annual basis. Heading into Hubert Davis’ first year at the helm for UNC, many wondered how his more modern lineup would fare in the rebounding department. Would trading two traditional bigs for one traditional center and a stretch-four yield the same results. After losing Day’Ron Sharpe to the NBA and Walker Kessler (Auburn) and Garrison Brooks (Mississippi State) to transfer, would Armando Bacot, as the lone holdover be able to replicate the success Carolina has long-enjoyed on the glass? The answer, it turns out, is “sort of”. Overall, UNC rebounded at a level commensurate to Roy Williams teams. The one area that was lacking was offensive rebounding; and Hubert Davis is likely okay with that outcome. Why? The Carolina offensive attack under Coach Davis yields many more three-point attempts than it did under Coach Williams. Three-point shots often lead to longer rebounds, which are less predictable in terms securing the basketball. Overall, Carolina was sixth in the nation in total rebounds per game, third in in defensive rebounds per game, and third in rebound margin.

UNC Football fall camp is underway! | Insights from former Tar Heel OL Brian Chacos
It’s August 1 and that marks the first full week of fall camp for the 2022 North Carolina Tar Heels football team. It’s technically the fourth day of camp after things got started last Friday. Former Carolina offensive lineman Brian Chacos joins the show to give his thoughts on the upcoming season. As a left tackle, he’s someone with invaluable insight into working in a first-time starting quarterback, be it Drake Maye or Jacolby Criswell. Chacos also discusses how good Coach Mack Brown is at keeping things close to the vest. He’s excited about newcomers, such as Virginia transfer Noah Taylor. Host Isaac Schade also takes time with Chacos to unpack his time playing for UNC in the early 2000s. He shares great stories about his teammates, coaches, and some of his favorite on-field memories. The conversation turns to Chacos’ current role working for the Rams’ Club. There’s a fantastic story about his parents and their annual cookout with Coach Courtney Banghart and the women’s basketball team.

UNC Football Recruiting: Who will Braeden Marshall choose? Rico Walker is a Tar Heel! Daevin Hobbs postponement

UNC Football Recruiting: Who will Braeden Marshall choose? Rico Walker is a Tar Heel! Daevin Hobbs postponement
Mack Brown and the North Carolina football team have an opportunity to pick up yet another 2023 defensive player on Saturday. This time is 4-star CB Braeden Marshall. The Florida native will decide between the Tar Heels, Nebraska, and Wisconsin. This is an interesting mix of schools, particularly given his recent connection to closer-to-home Central Florida. There’s not a good feel or leaning in any particular direction for which way Marshall will go. UNC did pick up another DE commit recently in Rico Walker. The Hickory, NC native becomes the third DE verbal in the #JordanClass, however he projects as someone who could be slotted in various positions. Sports Illustrated Director of Football Recruiting John Garcia, Jr. sees some of recent No. 1 NFL draft pick Travon Walker in Rico. Daevin Hobbs, who was set to announce his commitment on August 1 has postponed his commitment to an as-of-yet undertermined later date. The prevailing understanding is that he would be a Tar Heel. Nothing is moving John Garcia off of that as of yet, BUT Hobbs is visiting Alabama this weekend. Stay tuned for more info.

2022-23 North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball Roster Preview: RJ Davis

2022-23 North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball Roster Preview: RJ Davis
It's the ninth week of the summer preview for the 2022-23 North Carolina Tar Heels men's basketball roster. We have finished the freshmen (Seth Trimble, Jalen Washington, Tyler Nickel, Will Shaver), the transfer (Pete Nance), the sophomores (D’Marco Dunn, Dontrez Styles), and started the juniors with Puff Johnson. Sticking with the junior class, we set our sights on starting point guard RJ Davis, a 6'0", 175-pound guard from White Plains, New York. After Coach Hubert Davis provided more clear delineation in the roles for Davis and Caleb Love last year, with RJ permanently moving to point guard and Love to shooting guard, both players settled into a better groove. Davis wound up setting career highs in multiple statistical categories during the 2022 NCAA Tournament. His trajectory is pointed in the right direction to explode during his junior season. With the addition of freshman guard Seth Trimble, Davis will hopefully be able to bring his minutes down from 34.0 per game into the high 20s or low 30s, allowing him to be even more efficient in the time he does play. Host Isaac Schade and Coach Pac Kilby take you through Davis' game as well as expectations for the upcoming season.

North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball Summer Stats Series: SCORING
26-07-2022
North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball Summer Stats Series: SCORING
Hubert Davis’ first team at UNC averaged 77.9 points per game, which would have been 12th amongst teams in the Roy Williams era. Armando Bacot led the way for the Tar Heels with 16.3 points per game. Three other Tar Heels averaged double-digit scoring, Caleb Love (15.9), Brady Manek (15.1), and RJ Davis (13.5). Carolina held a +6.6 scoring margin over their opponents, a mark that would have only bested three Roy Williams era teams – 2009-10, 2019-20, and 2020-21. The Heels return 71.2% of their scoring including four of their top five in terms of points scored last season. Along with Manek, the other players the Tar Heels will be without are transfers Dawson Garcia, Anthony Harris, and Kerwin Walton. Given the fact that five different players led the team in scoring and five different players had at least one 20-point game, this is a “pick your poison” type team that opposing defenses will have trouble game-planning for. Can Pete Nance step in and make up for Brady Manek’s scoring production? Can any of the freshmen chip in buckets here and there? Will Leaky Black, Puff Johnson, or Dontrez Styles increase their scoring? Can the Tar Heels as a unit boost their scoring average north of 80? We’ll find out soon enough!

Top 3 UNC Tar Heels athletics moments from 2021-22
25-07-2022
Top 3 UNC Tar Heels athletics moments from 2021-22
As we prepare to move into August, and a new academic and athletic season, we need to stop and look back at the past 12 months and all the great things that have happened in North Carolina Tar Heels’ athletics. It’s impossible to narrow it all down, but host Isaac Schade gives you his top three moments plus several honorable mentions. Number three on the list is the UNC baseball team’s season turnaround, culminating in a conference tournament championship and a regional championship before falling to Arkansas in the Super Regional. Super freshman Vance Honeycutt and friends took us all on an amazing ride. Number two is the women’s lacrosse national championship, spearheaded by superstar Jamie Ortega. The ladies overcame losing in the Final Four in each of the previous three tournaments, including a phenomenal comeback over Northwestern in the semifinal. Number one (and perhaps the biggest no-brainer ever) is the victory over Duke in the Final Four, ending Coach K’s career. The performance from Carolina’s Iron Five of RJ Davis, Caleb Love, Leaky Black, Brady Manek, and Armando Bacot, which propelled first-year head coach Hubert Davis to the national championship in his inaugural season was something no one will ever forget. The honorable mention moments include Austin Greaser making the Masters, Kizhan Clarke’s national runner-up finish in wrestling, the women’s tennis team’s three-peat in the ITA indoor national championships, women’s basketball’s NCAA Tournament victory over Arizona AT Arizona, the victory over Duke on Senior night, and the women’s lacrosse comeback against Northwestern in the semifinals.

NCAA proposals: No more transfer limits & Transfer portal windows | UNC Tar Heels rank 4th in 2022-23 roster retention
22-07-2022
NCAA proposals: No more transfer limits & Transfer portal windows | UNC Tar Heels rank 4th in 2022-23 roster retention
The NCAA is considering ending the one-time transfer waiver in favor of student-athletes being allowed to transfer as many times as they would like within their years of eligibility, while being granted immediate eligibility. This news is pending a vote, which will happen in August. Host Isaac Schade is not thrilled with the news and unpacks his thoughts on it. The NCAA is also considering adding transfer portal open windows during which student-athletes would be able to declare their intentions to transfer. Under the proposal, each sport season (fall, winter, spring) would have a specific 60-day during which student-athletes could enter the transfer portal. For winter and spring sports, this will be the 60 days immediately following that specific sports’ championship selection announcement. For fall sports, it will be the 45 days immediately following the championship selection announcement plus May 1-15. North Carolina’s men’s basketball team returns the main core of their 2021-22 roster intact, bringing back starters RJ Davis, Caleb Love, Leaky Black, and Armando Bacot, along with reserves Puff Johnson, Dontrez Styles, D’Marco Dunn, and Justin McKoy. ESPN’s Jeff Borzello ranked the Tar Heels 4th on his list of national roster retention heading into the 2022-23 season. Coach Hubert Davis and his staff did a great job re-recruiting the team.

North Carolina Basketball: Get to know Pete Nance - the person, the player, the Tar Heel

North Carolina Basketball: Get to know Pete Nance - the person, the player, the Tar Heel
Northwestern transfer Pete Nance committed to North Carolina on Saturday, June 18. We haven’t been able to learn much about the newest Tar Heel, until now. UNC held summer media interviews this week with several players available on the floor of the Smith Center, including Nance, Armando Bacot, RJ Davis, Caleb Love, Dontrez Styles, and Puff Johnson. Host Isaac Schade unpacks what we learned from Nance in his interviews, breaking it down into Pete the person, Pete the player, and Pete the Tar Heel. Nance’s commitment filled Carolina’s scholarship quota for the 2022-23 season. Nance should slot into the Carolina lineup as the starting '4' alongside RJ Davis, Caleb Love, Leaky Black, and Armando Bacot. He will also provide great backup minutes for Bacot at the '5' when the presumptive ACC Preseason Player of the Year heads to the bench. Last season at Northwestern, Nance averaged 14.6 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 1.1 blocks, while shooting 45.2% from three. For his career, Nance started 74 games at Northwestern and has just one year of eligibility left, using his COVID year.

2022-23 North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball Roster Preview: Puff Johnson
20-07-2022
2022-23 North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball Roster Preview: Puff Johnson
It's the eighth week of the summer preview for the 2022-23 North Carolina Tar Heels men's basketball roster. We have finished the freshmen (Seth Trimble, Jalen Washington, Tyler Nickel, Will Shaver), the transfer (Pete Nance), the sophomores (D’Marco Dunn, Dontrez Styles) and we now move onto the juniors. We start with Puff Johnson, a 6'8", 205-pound guard from Moon Township, PA. If the surname and hometown sound familiar, it’s because Puff is the younger brother of Tar Heel alum and current Phoenix Sun, Cameron Johnson. Puff Johnson is something of an anomaly, due to missing a combined 30 games to injury in his first two years in Chapel Hill. Johnson won't crack the starting five - that will go to Armando Bacot, Pete Nance, Leaky Black, Caleb Love, and RJ Davis. However, had Nance not transferred in, Johnson likely would have taken on the final starting spot alongside the remaining members of the Iron Five. The expectation is that Johnson, who clearly has earned the trust of head coach Hubert Davis, will be the first player off the Tar Heel bench. Host Isaac Schade and Coach Pac Kilby take you through Johnson's game as well as expectations for the upcoming season.

North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball 2021-22 Stats Review: Three-Point Percentage
19-07-2022
North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball 2021-22 Stats Review: Three-Point Percentage
The 2021-22 North Carolina Tar Heels basketball team ushered in a new era as brand new head coach Hubert Davis took over the reins from three-time national champion Roy Williams. Along with Davis, the second-leading three-point shooter in NBA history, came a higher reliance upon the three-point shot. His first UNC team was led from beyond the arc by Brady Manek (40.3%), RJ Davis (36.7%), and Caleb Love (36.0%). As a team, Carolina, shot 35.8% while attempting the most threes by a team in program history (916). The Heels lose three of their top five three-point percentage shooters, including Manek, Kerwin Walton, and Dawson Garcia. Can Davis and Love build on what they accomplished last year? Can Pete Nance step in and once again shoot north of 40%? Will returners like Puff Johnson or D’Marco Dunn be able to find a more consistent shooting stroke? Will any of the freshmen contribute from beyond the arc?

North Carolina Tar Heels basketball 2022-23 non-conference schedule breakdown & predictions
18-07-2022
North Carolina Tar Heels basketball 2022-23 non-conference schedule breakdown & predictions
The North Carolina Tar Heels men’s basketball team released their 2022-23 non-conference schedule late last week. The returning experienced core of RJ Davis, Caleb Love, Leaky Black, Armando Bacot, plus the added depth of Puff Johnson and Dontrez Styles, along with the incoming freshmen and transfer Pete Nance will have a difficult set of games leading up to ACC play. In Hubert Davis’ second season, UNC will play a total of 11 non-conference games (and one ACC game) leading up to the main chunk of ACC play. Carolina will play in four MTEs (multi-team events) – Phil Knight Invitational, ACC/Big 10 Challenge, CBS Sports Classic, and the new Jumpman Invitational. Additionally, the Tar Heels will have one exhibition game and five one-off games, all at home in the Smith Center. While we don’t yet know the order or specific dates of the ACC schedule, we do know the 20 conference opponents and where those games will be played. The ACC has a three-year cycle in which the Heels have certain sets of teams they play away only, home only, and home and home, along with two primary rivals (Duke and NC State) who they play home and home every season.

What is North Carolina Football's #JordanClass? | Discussing recent DE commits

What is North Carolina Football's #JordanClass? | Discussing recent DE commits
John Garcia, Jr., Sports Illustrated’s Director of Football Recruiting joins host Isaac Schade to discuss just why exactly we keep seeing “#JordanClass” on all of Carolina’s social media when it comes to the football class of 2023. Football programs all around the country brand their recruiting classes with a nickname to give the recruits and families some excitement and something to rally around. UNC has had two recent defensive end recruits as part of their recent recruiting haul in the #JordanClass. Both of these young men are local products, one from Durham and the other from Cary. Jaybron Harvey is a 6’3”, 215-pound, 4-star defensive end from Southern High School. He comes in as a pass rush specialist. Tyler Thompson is 6’5” and 205 pounds, so both taller and thinner than Harvey. At this point in his development, Thompson has a bit more versatility to his game than does Harvey, but both young men should help Gene Chizik’s defense line wreak havoc.

The North Carolina Tar Heels prepare to lose GG Jackson | Pete Nance is a better fit for THIS team | Trust in Coach Davis

The North Carolina Tar Heels prepare to lose GG Jackson | Pete Nance is a better fit for THIS team | Trust in Coach Davis
The time has come for the North Carolina Tar Heels family to bid farewell to GG Jackson. There has been no public announcement yet from the Jacksons or from North Carolina, but various signs, including the fact that the Tar Heels have now offered scholarships to two other power forwards in the class of 2023, point to the fact that an announcement is imminent. Coach Hubert Davis has been doing everything in his power to keep GG Jackson in the fold, similar to how he worked to woo back Walker Kessler upon taking the UNC head coaching job. It seems like the train is too far down the tracks though. What remains to be seen is what Jackson will actually end up deciding to do. Re-classify and go to South Carolina (or elsewhere)? Go to the G League? Stay in the class of 2023? The good news for the Tar Heels is that they’ve already got their man for the 2022-23 season in Pete Nance, who, in host Isaac Schade’s opinion, is the more perfect fit for THIS team. Why so? You’ll have to listen to find out.

2022-23 North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball Roster Preview: Dontrez Styles

2022-23 North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball Roster Preview: Dontrez Styles
It's the seventh week of the summer preview for the 2022-23 North Carolina Tar Heels men's basketball roster. We have finished the freshmen (Seth Trimble, Jalen Washington, Tyler Nickel, Will Shaver), the transfer (Pete Nance) and we now finish the sophomores with guard / forward Dontrez Styles. Styles is a 6'6", 210-pound guard/forward from Kinston, North Carolina. While not playing a large number of minutes due to the Iron Five's dominance over playing time, Styles became one of Coach Davis' trusted reserves down the stretch. His most memorable moment from the season was his three-pointer that started overtime against Baylor in the 2nd Round of the NCAA Tournament. Styles has made a name for himself due to his athleticism and ability to affect the game in multiple ways, including guarding multiple positions. Where he'll need to grow is in his shooting ability to help stretch the floor as Coach Davis will no doubt want to continue to do. Styles won't crack the starting five - that will go to Armando Bacot, Pete Nance, Leaky Black, Caleb Love, and RJ Davis. He should carve out another solid backup role as a sophomore before exploding as an upperclassman. Host Isaac Schade and Coach Pac Kilby take you through Styles' game as well as expectations for the upcoming season.
