Young and inexperienced ACC teams are not supposed to win regularly on the road. North Carolina isn't listening, or maybe not paying attention to how a season should go by the book.

Coach Roy Williams joked Monday that North Carolina's lack of veteran talent is helping the Tar Heels on the road. "They're so inexperienced they don't know that it's supposed to be difficult," he said. Despite having four freshmen among its top eight players, North Carolina (15-6) is playing so well on the road that it might want to consider moving Wednesday's game with Georgia Tech from the Smith Center to Atlanta. The Tar Heels are 4-1 in ACC road games; 2-3 at home.

David Noel joked in the days leading up to the game that his friend Anthony King spent much of his time in foul trouble. But on Sunday night, it was Noel who had to walk the tightrope with early fouls while he tried to defend King.

It was Monday, and Raymond Felton was applying his simple rule to decide whether to rest his injured toe and sit out the game against Portland. "If I ain't dead, I'm playing," Felton said. And he did. He played hard, unlike a number of the Bobcats' big men. Felton led Charlotte with 16 points in a 91-83 loss to woeful Portland -- a flicker of hope in an otherwise nasty defeat.

Woody Durham's voice escapes from the car speakers, rumbling evenly like an idling Harley-Davidson engine. The play-by-play man for the North Carolina Tar Heels is crisp, clear and concise, the driver thinks to himself. He's better than ever. Granted, the driver, Wes Durham, is biased.
