Chris Iannetta has fractured teeth, broken nose after pitch to face

Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Chris Iannetta has several stitches in his upper lip, plus a couple of fractured teeth and a broken nose after getting hit in the face by a fastball. "He's doing OK, and I think we're all lucky and fortunate for that," manager Torey Lovullo said Saturday. Iannetta was struck by a 93 mph pitch from Pittsburgh reliever Johnny Barbato in the seventh inning Friday. (

UNC student to celebrate graduation, commissioning, marriage in 3 days

In a time where the current generation is often lambasted for being lazy, entitled, and unappreciative, Isaiah Levia is setting a new example thanks to his father, Sgt. Maj. Luis Levia and mother, Brenda Levia. Levia has lived in many places only a handful get to see. Throughout his upbringing he was taught this: Not attending school is not a choice.

How Tre Boston impacts Chargers' 2017 depth chart

Safety Tre Boston did indeed bolt to Los Angeles to sign with the Chargers despite visits with the Buffalo Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers. The signing of Boston addresses an area of need for L.A. as they continue to make offseason moves.

Virginia Tech splits doubleheader with third-ranked UNC baseball

In his final home start in a Virginia Tech uniform, redshirt-senior Kit Scheetz held third-ranked North Carolina to four runs over six-plus innings and helped the Hokies earn a split in a doubleheader against the Tar Heels on Saturday. After UNC grabbed the first game, 9-4, the Hokies responded in game two by jumping out to a 6-2 lead and registered an 8-4 win. (Hokie Sports)

Mack Hollins stole the spotlight on opening day of Eagles rookie minicamp

The minute Mack Hollins jogged on the field, I couldn’t stop watching him. He caught smoothly, his cut ability was off the chart, and he ran routes like a speedier, smaller wideout. The more I watched him, the more I liked him, the more I wanted to keep watching him. If you didn’t know where and when he was drafted, you would think he was one of these top-10 1st round picks.

UNC Men's Lacrosse Falls to Albany, 15-12

Albany built a 14-3 lead by halftime and defeated defending NCAA champion North Carolina, 15-12, in the NCAA Tournament on Saturday night at Casey Stadium. Albany improves to 15-2, while Carolina's season ends at 8-8. UNC opened the scoring on a goal by Chris Cloutier. His behind-the-back goal marked the 20th successive game in which Cloutier has scored. (

Eagles Rookie Profile: Mack Hollins is a great jump ball target

Mack Hollins is a little weird, but in the best way. He wants to own an aquarium after he's done with football, for example. But he's a consummate teammate and has had zero character problems or even rumblings of discontent. He retweets stuff about his teammates and fellow UNC athletes constantly, and the bond between all the UNC receivers was obvious during his career. (Bleeding Green Nation)

ESPN’s Cassidy Hubbarth offers beautiful remembrance of Stuart Scott

It’s been more than two years since the death of ESPN anchor Stuart Scott. But although Scott is no longer around to deliver catchphrases on SportsCenter, his influence lingers at ESPN in ways both obvious (anchors who attribute their styles to Scott’s influence) and less obvious. Among the many ESPNers with fond memories of Scott is Cassidy Hubbarth. (Awful Announcing)

No. 3 Tar Heels Clinch ACC Coastal Baseball Crown

Tyler Lynn's two-run homer in the sixth gave No. 3 North Carolina the lead for good and Rodney Hutchison Jr. worked 4.2 scoreless innings of relief as the Tar Heels beat Virginia Tech 9-4 Saturday at English Field.

UNC Softball Falls Just Short In ACC Title Game

A three-run home run by Katelyn Shifflett in the top of the seventh cut the deficit to a single run, but top-seeded Florida State closed out a perfect 27-0 season against ACC opponents with a 4-3 victory to capture its fourth consecutive ACC Tournament title. The Seminoles secured the ACC's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, while the Tar Heels fall to 38-19. (

Roy Williams Hopes to Coach Another 10-12 Years

North Carolina coach Roy Williams hopes to coach for another 10-12 years. Williams, 66, attended the NBA Draft Combine on Friday to support his former players, including senior Kennedy Meeks. Meeks’ team was coached by former UNC star Jerry Stackhouse, whom Williams chatted with before the game. Afterward, I asked Williams if he could envision Stackhouse one day taking over for him at UNC. (Zag's Blog)

Mitch Trubisky on 1st Bears practice: ‘They wanna see me run the show’

He started with flash cards. In the two weeks after he was selected as the surprise No. 2 draft pick, Mitch Trubisky took the Bears’ playbook and condensed it into 3×5 cards to teach himself formations and phrasing. "Just hours on hours,” he said. “I pretty much don’t stop studying until I feel comfortable. And then I go to bed, wake up and do it again.” (Chicago Sun-Times)

Matt Harvey's return doesn't end well, but Mets see a silver lining

Too much of the chatter around the New York Mets' Matt Harvey over the past week has been about what he needs to do as a person and a teammate. With his outing Friday in a 7-4 New York loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, he showed he also has a lot of work to do as a pitcher. And he knows it, which might be the silver lining in all this. (

(The News-Press)

Mitch Trubisky makes fine showing in Bears rookie minicamp debut

Give credit to John Fox. It's rookie camp. The Bears' next game is four months away. But his sarcastic wit Friday was in regular-season form. Moments after quarterback Mitch Trubisky finished his first pro practice, the first session of the Bears' three-day camp, Fox faced the two dozen reporters that came to Halas Hall to see the future. (Chicago Tribune)
