Ty Lawson had come close to posting a triple-double more than a couple of times in his eight-season NBA career and never pulled it off.

Tim Federowicz's contract purchased by San Francisco Giants

Tim Federowicz was added to the San Francisco Giants' 25-man roster Tuesday. With Buster Posey headed to the 7-day disabled list, Federowicz will serve as the Giants' backup catcher until he is back.

North Carolina basketball set to be a force again in 2017-18

Roy Williams often avoids setbacks or rebuilding campaigns after fruitful years. A “rearrangement” is a more proper tag for a Tar Heels program with the potential pieces to again compete for an ACC title and a national championship. Yet it’s difficult to assess every element of a squad still evolving as its stars make decisions about their futures in the coming weeks. (

Marcus Ginyard: A Championship Dream, Redeemed

In November of 2016, I interviewed Joel Berry II and Justin Jackson on the importance of preparation as they set out for what we’ve all dubbed the “Redemption Tour.” The last thing Berry said to me in that interview was, “We want to be the last team standing on the last night of the season.” Here we are, the last team standing, the 2017 National Champions!

Turner's Take: Catching On, Catching Up

It's a year of new beginnings for UNC football, particularly on offense. Come September, when the Tar Heels take the field against Cal, a new quarterback will lead a huddle comprised of a mostly-new offensive line, with new tailbacks and new receivers. The Tar Heels will have to find new playmakers, and there are many young players eager to step into those roles. (
