Today's Carolina links from around the ‘net.......

Carolina Basketball


North Carolina will be going for basketball history today, while Marcus Ginyard and Deon Thompson will be going out the door of the Smith Center. North Carolina will play Miami at 8 p.m. and needs one win to become the second major-college team to reach 2,000 victories. Kentucky hit the mark first on Dec. 21, but the Tar Heels' struggles have dragged their chase to the regular season's last week.

There is no question that Marcus Ginyard's final season wearing a North Carolina uniform has not gone exactly the way he wanted it. Nearly a year after the Tar Heels won a national championship, UNC is sitting near the bottom of the ACC standings and is dangerously close to missing out on an NIT berth.

North Carolina junior Will Graves wasn’t stunned at all to see freshman teammate Leslie McDonald register a breakout performance in Saturday’s 77-68 victory at Wake Forest. After all, Graves gets a face full of it in practice almost every day.

In one of the most disappointing seasons in the history of North Carolina basketball, the Tar Heels near the end of 2009-10 more concerned about being able to win No. 16 than No. 2,000. But if Roy Williams' struggling players can win tonight, they can leave the Smith Center with both goals accomplished. They will have to do it against a Miami team that very rarely has been any more than a basketball afterthought.

North Carolina shooting guard Marcus Ginyard set another career high on Saturday when he grabbed a Wake Forest missed shot with six seconds left. Somehow, it seems fitting that the fifth-year senior is closing his college playing days by rebounding. "I just want to finish strong," said Ginyard, who has pulled down 23 rebounds his past two games. "I just want us to finish strong, and to enjoy doing it."
