Pitt: Conner, Boyd headline five players to watch in 2015

Pat Narduzzi brings a celebrated defensive resume to Pitt, but there's little star power on that side of the ball for the Panthers in his first season. If the program's fifth coach in five years is going to give the Panthers their second winning season since 2010, it's going to hinge heavily on two dynamic offensive players. FIVE TO WATCH IN 2015 1. James Conner, RB, Jr. Seventh...

Five burning questions: Boston College Eagles

Five burning questions: Boston College Eagles In each of his two seasons at Boston College, Steve Addazio has gone to a bowl game. But he hasn't finished better than 4-4 in ACC play. Will that change in Year 3? There's been major turnover on Chestnut Hill, with just nine starters back in all, meaning the Eagles are going to be leaning heavily on young players. "Essentially we're...

Swofford: ACC placing medical observers in booth for member teams

Five Burning Questions: North Carolina Tar Heels

At his introductory news conference back in 2011, Larry Fedora, aside from threatening to physically confront adversity, promised the North Carolina program a wild ride. "You'd better buckle your seat belts," the Red Bull-fueled coach said at the time, one of those one-liners that populate such events and send fans rushing to message boards with anticipatory remarks. Bringing along...

Virginia Tech Hokies: 5 players to watch in 2015

Kendall Fuller, CB, Junior The Fuller family keeps delivering the goods for coach Frank Beamer. Kendall Fuller, the younger brother of three NFL players, is projected to be one of college football's top defensive backs in 2015 and, given his bloodlines and his own skill set, a blue-chip NFL draft prospect next spring. The 6-foot All-American is another Hokie shutdown corner -- the...

Reports: Hornets agree to two-year deal with Jeremy Lin

The Charlotte Hornets entered free agency with perimeter needs but precious little cap space to play with, but on the eve of the NBA lifting its free-agent moratorium the franchise was able to add a piece -- a well-known piece. The Hornets agreed to a two-year, $4-plus million deal with free-agent guard Jeremy Lin, according to Yahoo! Sports. The deal can not be finalized until the...

Five Burning Questions: Virginia Tech Hokies

Frank Beamer is entering his 29th season at Virginia Tech, meaning he's been in Blacksburg as long as Megan Fox and Lindsay Lohan have been alive. He's also had about as long of a drought as those actresses when it comes to a hit, with Beamer's Hokies having not won double-digit games or claiming a division crown since 2011. Will that change in 2015? The answers to these questions...

Miami: Five players to watch in 2015

Miami had seven players selected in the latest NFL draft. That's four more than Georgia Tech, the team that represented the ACC Coastal Division in the last conference title game, and five more than Duke, the 2013 champ. Talent isn't a problem in Coral Gables, but winning is, as Al Golden has one season with more than seven wins in his four years at the helm. The pressure is on this...

Five Burning Questions: Miami Hurricanes

Miami's football program is still searching for its renaissance. NCAA investigations and sanctions have slowed the progress of the Al Golden era, which is still awaiting its first 10-win season and bowl win after posting a 6-7 campaign, culminating in a four-game losing streak and an Independence Bowl loss, in 2014. Still, the Hurricanes were competitive in all but two games, and...

Panthers well-positioned to win third straight NFC South title

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Yes, the Carolina Panthers made the playoffs last season, but it was basically by default as they finished 7-8-1. It was a small miracle they finished as well as they did considering all the things that went wrong last season -- from Greg Hardy's legal situation to all the running backs going down with injuries to quarterback Cam Newton having health and accuracy...

A 3-step outline for the Hornets making the playoffs next season

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Yes, the NBA draft just happened a few days ago, and it's still only June. But it's also the perfect time, in the days leading up to free agency, to wonder what your favorite team needs in order to make the playoffs or compete for the championship. In the case of the Charlotte Hornets, the quest for the postseason isn't impossible; but it won't be easy, either...

Hurricanes build for future, address immediate needs on Day 2 of draft

The 2015 draft got off to a good start for the Carolina Hurricanes when defenseman Noah Hanifin -- the No. 3 prospect according to NHL Central Scouting -- fell to them at No. 5 overall on Friday night. But general manager Ron Francis was not finished making moves to try to improve this team, both in the short-term (when it makes sense) and in the future (no matter how long it takes...

Carolina Hurricanes select Noah Hanifin No. 5 overall in NHL Draft

The Carolina Hurricanes have missed the playoffs for six straight seasons, and so they clearly had a lot of needs. One of those needs is on defense, and they addressed that in the first round of the NHL Draft by picking Boston College's Noah Hanifin with the No. 5 overall pick. Hanifin was rated as the No. 3 overall prospect by NHL Central Scouting among North American skaters, and...

Rookie Frank Kaminsky fits Hornets' future plans

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- There's no question about it: Michael Jordan is the main reason why Frank Kaminsky is now a Charlotte Hornet instead of Justise Winslow or Devon Booker. Everybody knows the lack of success Jordan has had in selecting players in the NBA Draft. In fact, Jordan's missteps date back all the way to 1987, when he wanted the Chicago Bulls to select fellow Tar Heel Joe...

Virginia: Five to watch in 2015

Virginia narrowly missed a bowl game last year with a 5-7 finish, and the Cavaliers saw a promising start to the season end in disappointment.

And 2015 is going to be the time for some of that high-caliber talent to develop. FIVE TO WATCH IN 2015 1. Matt Johns...

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- When it came time for the Charlotte Hornets to make their selection with the ninth-overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft on Thursday night, they found themselves in a position they most likely didn't imagine.  Not only was Wisconsin center Frank Kaminsky and Kentucky sharpshooter Devin Booker each available, but surprisingly so was Duke guard Justise Winslow.  And...

Hornets seeking versatility, shooting prowess with No. 9 pick in NBA draft

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Heading into Thursday's NBA draft, it seems obvious the Charlotte Hornets -- holding the No. 9 overall pick -- would only target players with a high propensity for long-range shooting. The Hornets have been one of the NBA's worst outside shooting teams over the last four seasons and finished dead-last in 3-point shooting last season -- at 31.8 percent. However...

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...
