Court Vision: Wake gets program-building win over Pitt

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Wake Forest (13-16, 5-11) has been so achingly, agonizingly close all year long against good teams, and finally, the Deacs were able to pull out a win over a Pittsburgh team that had everything to play for by a final of 69-66. Pitt (19-11, 8-8) needed this one -- and likely the next two -- for its NCAA Tournament at-large hopes, but Wake head coach Danny Manning...

A 'minor setback': Braves' Upton taking positive approach to foot injury

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Melvin Upton Jr. (formerly B.J.) isn't sure when or why or even how his injured foot became the first big storyline of the Atlanta Braves' spring training.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes (23-30-7) continued their relatively hot 2015 with a 3-0 win over the Washington Capitals (33-20-10).

Cool, but driven Teheran may soon join elite class of MLB arms

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla -- The days of openly asking if Julio Teheran can make the National League All-Star team have passed. (Mission accomplished in 2014.)

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...

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.
