IC Radio Show: Special Rivalry Edition

We're reporting from the Smith Center floor for a special edition of the Inside Carolina Radio Show. This week's show is all about getting you ready for Saturday's UNC-Duke showdown. Interviews with Roy Williams, Tyler Hansbrough, Danny Green, Marcus Ginyard -- plus in-depth analysis from insiders Greg Barnes and Andrew Jones.


Mar. 8 Edition

Roy Williams:
"Yeah, it's for the conference championship and you can make a scenario that it's for a lot more, but push comes to shove, it's Duke against Carolina and that's all it's got to be."
Tyler Hansbrough:
"We're a tougher basketball team now."
Danny Green:
"We didn't have a great game [the first time], we didn't shoot the ball well, but this is a chance for us to make up for it."
Marcus Ginyard:
"To be playing in the ... Duke-Carolina rivalry at Duke on Senior Night ... Playing for the ACC regular season championship -- it's everything you wish it could be."
Andrew Jones:
"I think this [UNC] team is mentally tougher, physically tougher ... than they were back then and because of that they're a lot more ready to win this game and win a championship than they were five weeks ago."
Greg Barnes:
"They really need [Ellington and Green] to step up. ... Everybody needs to come to play, but especially those two."
Taylor Zarzour:
"Even without Lawson as a major factor, I'd see Carolina as a slight favorite because of how well they're playing recently and because Duke's not playing at the level they were at when they were here."

About the Inside Carolina Radio Show

The show originally aired for a few years on a local Triangle radio station. We had some opportunities to continue last season, but we went off the air because we only wanted to produce a show if we could provide a top-rate program -- with a professional host, quality guests, etc. We didn't want to just throw someone on the air and take calls for the sake of being a radio show. This reincarnation of the Inside Carolina Radio Show is not your typical call-in show. It's an informational show, with exclusive interviews and objective analysis. And Taylor Zarzour, the sports director for WPTF 680AM (who has hosted the postgame football and basketball shows for the Tar Heel Sports Network as well as done play-by-play work for UNC), is the host to make sure that is the case.

Each week the show is available on the site as a regular audio file that you can either open directly or download to your computer. For those familiar with iTunes and RSS feeds, those options are available as well. You won't have to worry about missing it, as it'll be available for download 24/7, rather than just being on for 30 minutes live.

As we fine tune the program, we'd love to get your feedback on what you liked, what you didn't like and what you want to see more of. You can contact host Taylor Zarzour directly at taylor@curtismedia.com or you can contact the Inside Carolina editorial staff via the Contact Us page.

Enjoy and we look forward to hearing your feedback,
- The IC Staff
