Court Vision: Short-handed Virginia routs Wake Forest to win seventh straight

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- No. 2 Virginia (26-1, 14-1 ACC) was supposed to have a hard time with Wake Forest, a team that gave it a nightmare of a game just 11 days ago in Charlottesville, without not only Justin Anderson but also starting point guard London Perrantes (broken nose). Well, Virginia did not have a very tough time with the Deacs, dispatching them 70-34 in its most dominating...

New pickup Williams could be 'X' factor for Hornets' playoff push

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- As Mo Williams sat on the bench for the Minnesota Timberwolves earlier this month against the Atlanta Hawks, he started daydreaming about what it might be like to play for Charlotte, a playoff-contending team. Al Jefferson, a childhood friend and former teammate with the Utah Jazz, had called Mo earlier to say he had heard rumors that Williams might join him with...

State (17-11, 8-7) got its first win in Chapel Hill in over a decade when it knocked off in-state rival No. 15 North Carolina (19-9, 9-6) on Tuesday night, all but ensuring it won't sweat out Selection Sunday (barring a late-season collapse) and reshaping the way both teams are viewed. The final score wasn't pretty — 58-46 — but the result certainly was...

Offensive tackle an obvious option for Panthers in first round

CHARLOTTE, N.C. --When it came time for the Carolina Panthers to select in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, most just assumed they would go after an offensive tackle. Instead, general manager Dave Gettleman shocked fans and media alike by taking wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who turned out to be a solid addition to the team. Now, once again, all the draft experts and pundits...

ACC Roundup: Last week's drama could spill over into the now

After a pretty crazy week -- even by ACC standards -- that saw a North Carolina-Duke thriller for the ages followed by a Louisville suspension, reinstatement and then dismissal, this week can't possibly compare. And it likely won't. But the ramifications of last week's drama -- Louisville starting point guard Chris Jones' ultimate dismissal, North Carolina potentially finding its...

Hurricanes fall to Habs despite return of Jordan Staal

RALEIGH, N.C.  -- Carey Price needed to be great for the Montreal Canadiens, and he was up to the task. Price stopped 28 Carolina Hurricanes shots, and the Canadiens provided enough offense to earn a 3-1 win on Monday night. The Hurricanes had alternate captain Jordan Staal in the lineup for the first time this season, but they couldn't overcome Price's performance. Jiri Sekac and...

Down but not out: Tigers show encouraging development against Illini

ST. LOUIS -- Missouri lost a 62-59 heartbreaker to Illinois on Saturday, but the Tigers' hearts should not be broken. Their hearts, in fact, should be more full of hope than they've been all season. While it goes down as a loss, this was not like an "L" against Missouri-Kansas City or even a "W" against Southeast Missouri State. This was, as Illinois coach John Groce said, "a high...

Senior duo still climbing record books for maligned Mizzou offense

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- A down year offensively could have been much worse for Mizzou without the reliable production of two seniors eager for one final chance to raise their standing in the school's record books. A lack of depth due to youth and injuries hurt the Tigers more than anything else following the departure of their top three receivers, top rusher and top passer from a year ago...

How is UNC All-American Marcus Paige attacking opposing defenses?

Back in late April, Roy Williams sat in a golf cart in Greensboro, Ga., distracted by a disappointing round and incoming tee shots on a hole surrounded by Lake Oconee. Far from a basketball court or the stacked field his North Carolina team would eventually encounter in Nassau this past week, Williams's hoops interest nonetheless sparked when the name Marcus Paige came up in an interview...

They carried Mizzou to another impressive defensive performance in a 29-21 win at Tennessee likely to give Vols quarterback...
