Sophomore guard Rechon Black has become a hot commodity

Nicknamed “Leaky” based on his middle name, Malik, Rechon Black is a blue-chip talent who possesses exceptional ball skills for a 6-6 guard. Black is being groomed as a point guard and it’s easy to understand why. He’s a highly coordinated dribbler and passer with length and improving athleticism, and he’s drawing comparisons to N.C. product and current Duke freshman Brandon Ingram.

Adam Warren is one of the most fun Yankee pitchers to watch

In his interviews, Adam Warren seems like a pretty unassuming guy. Make no mistake though: his mind is always working. If there is a way to squeeze every last drop of production out of his innate ability, he will find it. When watching Adam Warren, you won't find that one spectacular offering that blows hitters away.

Why Harrison Barnes Could Be the Most Intriguing Free Agent of 2016

Harrison Barnes heard the chuckling when he turned down a four-year, $64 million extension. “Everyone asks, ‘Someone is really going to pay all that for a guy who can’t run the pick-and-roll?’” Barnes tells Grantland, laughing. “But I don’t worry much. I’m confident I will get better at it.” The mystery of Barnes is that he may never get to show off that theoretical improvement on the Warriors.

UNC must solve defensive-line issues at Georgia Tech

The Yellow Jackets, smarting from back-to-back road losses (against Notre Dame and Duke), might be salivating when they watch parts of UNC’s 41–14 Saturday victory over Delaware on video. “I think we’re still getting too much push up front and we’ve got to do a better job with those front four guys,” said UNC coach Larry Fedora in a bit of an understatement.

Georgia Tech offense looks to get back on track

The Georgia Tech offense, which looked overpowering in the first two weeks against a pair of overmatched opponents, has failed to show up the past two weeks. The inability to run the ball has been especially galling to head coach Paul Johnson, who saw his team’s streak of 200-yard rushing games end at 17. Even more disappointing are the mistakes made by the team’s experienced players.

Memphis Grizzlies Media Day: Vince Carter took little time off, no vacations for the summer of 2015

Half man, half amazing. 100% cryogenically preserved. I've made no secret about how much I love Vince Carter playing for the Memphis Grizzlies. Yes, I know he's old and was a major disappointment on the court last season. No, I won't stop believing he's about to have one last great season. FWIW he is looking a bit slimmer these days.

Lakers Hire James Worthy to Work with Coaching Staff

Former Lakers great James Worthy has been hired by the team to work with the coaching staff it was announced Monday by General Manager Mitch Kupchak. Worthy will work with head coach Byron Scott and his staff, focusing on the Lakers big men. He will accompany the team to Hawaii for training camp and continue to work with Lakers players throughout the season.

Georgia Tech looking to fix offense after 2 straight losses

Georgia Tech has a bigger concern than just preparing for North Carolina. "This week we've got to fix ourselves," coach Paul Johnson said Monday. "North Carolina will have a good team, but I'm more worried about fixing our problems." Poor special teams play hurt in last week's 34-20 loss at Duke. Poor production from the running game was a bigger surprise.

White House honors UNC Education Initiative for Investment in Latino Youth

SLI was selected for its college access work supporting Latino students in high schools across North Carolina.

Video: Brandon Robinson Announces for UNC

Standing with family and his Douglas County High School teammates, Brandon Robinson was ready to make his college announcement. "Next year I'll be attending the University of..." He looked down at hats for Georgia, Georgia Tech, Florida State, Louisville and UNC on the table in front of him. As he reached for the Tar Heels cap, the applause filled the gym. "... North Carolina."

QB Controversy? What QB Controversy?

For your viewing pleasure, Larry Fedora's weekly Monday press conference. Fedora dives into the quarterback issue right out of the gate in hopes of avoiding "78 questions" on the topic. It doesn't really work as the assembled media probe and prodded regarding his decision to bench Marquise Williams in favor of Mitch Trubisky. The bottom line from Fedora is there is no controversy.

2015-2016 Memphis Grizzlies Player Preview: Vince Carter

The value we can count on from Vince Carter will come off the court. Or, more accurately, it will come on the court, but from other players — especially the rookies. Vince is as good a mentor as any young player could ask for, and it helps that he's an exceedingly good and likable person.

Is Homer Simpson an "anybody but Carolina" fan?

The season premiere of "The Simpsons" on FOX featured an animated shoutout to Triangle area schools when Homer Simpson wore a Duke shirt and held an NC State flag....It's not clear why Homer had Blue Devils and Wolfpack gear, but it was cool to see on television.

In second half Georgia Tech had just 51 yards rushing on 21 attempts or 2.4 yards per carry which is amazing given how the first half went
