Senior Day Loss (02.18.01) Despite incredible efforts from two seniors, it wasn't enough Heels lose in OT to FSU, 80-78. Barksdale knocked down 30 points and 15 rebounds and Juana Brown chipped in 17 points, seven rebounds and seven assists. The loss should mean the Heels (14-11) need to win the ACC Tournament to advance to the NCAA. "Florida State just wanted it more than we did," UNC coach Sylvia Hatchell said. [ Recap link ]
Sunday is Senior Day! (02.15.01) UNC takes on FSU in the final home game for the four seniors - Barksdale, Juana Brown, Sharp and Jackie Myers.

Good things come in threes (02.08.01) UNC 100, #22 Clemson 99, 2OT. Juana Brown's layup with less than a second on the clock secures a huge win for the Heels. Brown had 24 points, Coretta Brown 22, LaQuanda Barksdale 20 points and 12 rebounds and Leah Sharp 19, including a huge bucket to get to the 2nd OT. UNC is now 13-9 overall, 7-5 ACC. [ recap link ]
FSU 71, Duke 69 (02.08.01) Wild days in the ACC.

Barksdale contributed 14 points and 12 boards but the pleasant surprise of the game was Candice Sutton's 18 points and 11 rebounds. Next up: Clemson at Carmichael Auditorium, 7 p.m on Thursday.

More to come. [ boxscore ]
Tonight: Duke at Carmichael, 7pm. BE THERE, be early and be loud!- this is big time fans, turn out and show your support.
Just say NO to the ACC-Big 12 Challenge next year! (01.20.01) Oklahoma took care of Carolina, 94-77 at Carmichael Sunday afternoon. The Heels kept it close until LaNeisha Caufield put the Sooners on her back with 23 points. It wasn't pretty, especially not on national television. Barksdale shined once again with 18 points and 14 rebounds.
Difficult to watch at times, Carolina's poor shot selection against a superior defense led to a horrid 36% shooting day. Coretta Brown and Juana Brown each attempted 17 shots - way too many for guards. Granted Carolina needs the offense but getting Sutton and Sharp more involved might not be a bad idea.
Oklahoma, not unlike Duke in the past, ran their half-court offense with ease. If Carolina wants to keep being successful, they will have to develop more post player. Hopefully, that is why Sylvia Crawley is there. Can you imagine how good Barksdale could be if she had someone to take the scoring pressure off and someone to draw double-teams in the paint?
Unpopular as it sounds, Carolina should consider ending their three-guard starting lineup and move Jennifer Thomas (6-1) into lineup for Leah Sharp (5-11) who is starting at forward. Sharp is a gifted player and her outside shooting would make a great spark off the bench. Thomas brings size and strength.
On a roll (01.18.01) UNC 75, FSU 62. Heels move to 10-6 overall and 4-3 in the ACC, good enough for fourth place. Juana Brown leads the Heels with 21 and Barksdale adds 15 and pulls down 10 boards but the best sign - Candace Sutton with 15. First back to back wins in 2001.
#5 Duke 62, #22 North Carolina State 59 State has many chances to win but just can't pull it out and drops to 2-5 in the ACC. Devil super frosh Alana Beard jams thumb.
How Sweet It is! (01.12.01) UNC 83, NC State 77 OT. After #18 State sent the game to OT on two free throws by Amy Simpson on a controversial foul with no time on the clock, the Heels (9-6, 3-3) decided to settle the issue right quick. Carolina blasted out of the overtime and didn't look back. Coretta Brown scored 22 points and LaQuanda Barksdale contributed another double-double with 21 points and 15 boards. Leah Sharp's four free throws iced the game. [ link to recap ]
The return of many Tar Heel greats was a smashing success and the highlight might have been Nikki Teasley's appearance and promise to return to the Heels next year. With the graduations of Juana Brown, Leah Sharp and LaQuanda Barksdale, Teasley return will be a boost to the Heels. Will Teasley shift to the two-guard with Coretta Brown running the point? Who knows but seeing that unfold would be great news for the Heels.
Be There! UNC will host N.C. State at the Dean Dome Sunday at 1pm. The goal is to break the ACC women's hoops attendance record of 14,500. Free "rally rags" to the first 1,000 fans.
Also at halftime, UNC women's basketball alumni will be recognized, and several will compete in a three-point shooting contest. Among those shooting will be Charlotte Smith, who sunk the most famous three-pointer in UNC history, the winning shot in the 1994 NCAA Championship game. Also shooting will be Tracy Reid and Tonya Sampson. Following the game, the UNC players will be available for autographs along the Smith Center concourse.
Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for students. There is no charge for admission for children 12 and under. UNC students and employees will be admitted free with a UNC One card. Customers making a $25 Nike purchase at Dick's Sporting Goods in Durham, Cary, Greensboro or Hickory this week will receive two free tickets to the game. Parking for Sunday is $3 in the lots surrounding the Smith Center. UNC women's basketball season ticket parking passes will be honored for parking in any unreserved lot.
Allen Doubtful (01.12.01) UNC Sports Info says a broken hand may sideline LaShonda Allen. The 6-5 Allen is averaging 3.2 points and 3.9 rebounds per game this season, 6.2 points and 6.2 rebounds over the last four games. She has started four games, including the last three.

One of those games - UVA 78, UNC 76 (01.11.01) UVA's Schuye LaRue scored with less than two seconds on the clock to take a hard fought win in Carmichael. The Heels were led by Coretta Brown with 21 points and Barksdale's 19 points and nine rebounds. Again Carolina's weakness was exposed as bigger post players caused the Heels fits - LaRue had 29 points and 10 rebounds. This was a loss that the Heels can take some good things away from as they played strong against another top 20 team and they clawed their way back into this game. [ link to game story ]
Congrats to N.C. State head coach Kay Yow and her #600 win tonight. A class act and an asset to college hoops. Now let's make sure her visit to the DEAN DOME on Sunday to play the Heels next isn't 601.
State loses a pair (01.10.01) The Pack (10-4) is short two players this season as Kaayla Chones and Terah James will both red-shirt with knee injuries.
Hot Dog! UNC upsets #16 Clemson, 71-70 (01.08.01) When the clock is running down, pick Juana Brown - she ended the first half with three three-pointers and hit a bucket and two free throws to provide all the offense the Heels needed in the final 20 seconds. Juana Brown led North Carolina with 20 points and LaQuanda Barksdale, the ACC's leading scorer, had 19 points and 15 rebounds, her seventh double-double. [ link to game story ]
With all the ACC teams with at least one conference loss already, this opens the door for the Heels to get back in the ACC race.
Deacons edge Heels (01.05.01) Slide continues as Heels lose to Wake Forest 73-71 and fall to 7-5, 1-2 in the ACC. This is not the part of the ACC schedule the Heels should be stumbling through, Tech was a pre-season #6 pick and Wake was the #9 pick. Yes, this game was much closer with Wake draining free throws to win it but the Heels have more talent that they are showing on the court. [ link to game story ]
Jackets get best of Heels, 82-75 (01.02.01) Heels look out of sorts, dropping game to a Tech team they should have beaten easily. While it was good to see Yellow Jacket Niesha Butler healthy after a horrible knee injury last year, the Heels saw her way too much as she dropped 25 points on them. She shot 22 times and Tech made 51% of their FGs in the 2nd half - where was the defense? Brown and Brown plus LaShonda Allen and Jennifer Thomas off the bench had strong games but the Heels have to have more than nine points from Barksdale and more than a combined three points from starters Sutton and Sharp.
