UNC coach Roy Williams blamed himself after the No. 5 Tar Heels fell to Butler in the team’s Battle 4 Atlantis opener. The loss left Williams questioning his coaching and his team’s preparation, and it left players questioning their toughness.

Trevor Lacey poured in a career-high 26 points and Ralston Turner added 23 as the Wolfpack remained unbeaten, toppingRichmond 84-72 Wednesday night at PNC Arena.

For Duke, all of the basketball players in the starting lineup had a purpose in the Blue Devils’ 93-54 win over the Furman Paladins on Wednesday.

Henry Williams was once one of the country’s top college basketball players and is still the 49ers’ all-time leading scorer. He had a plan and he’s stayed the course, even when it brought challenges he never imagined.

Wake Forest didn’t get a lot of scoring from its starting five Wednesday against Mount St. Mary’s. That didn’t matter to Deacons coach Danny Manning, not with the way his reserves were playing in an 83-49 victory over the Mountaineers.

Jack Gibbs poured in a career-high 37 points on 15-of-17 shooting and Davidson ran past Central Florida 95-69 on Wednesday night.
