Men's basketball has won four in a row after Thursday's win at Clemson. Don't miss Adam's column on the game and the postgame scene at Littlejohn. Carolina hosts Florida State Saturday at 2. That game is on CBS. Earlier this week, Adam compiled postseason projections for the Tar Heels.

While researching for the April Tar Heel Monthly, a 20th anniversary tribute to the 1993 NCAA champions, I found this cool Eric Montross article from SI's Alexander Wolff.
Friday was the last day of Carolina football's Blue Dawn spring conditioning period. It's worth looking at UNCFBVideo's YouTube channel to appreciate the work the Tar Heels have been putting in, in some extreme weather conditions.
Deadspin has a neat story on the guy who made his own football highlight video with practically no highlights.
Speaking of Clemson, this Ron Morris piece on Milton Jennings is a couple of weeks old, but it's definitely worth a read.
