'He gets a 10 for bravery': Vince Carter gives top marks to fan who ate 17-year-old cereal

A Toronto Raptors fan who ate 17-year-old cereal on a bet got a shout-out from the man on the box: Vince Carter. Carter was on NBATV's The Starters, judging and scoring various sports news and videos.

Matt Harvey, E.R.A. at 6.08, Prepares for His Next Start

Matt Harvey wore a batting practice cap and an undershirt to the mound on Friday at Citi Field, long before fans were allowed inside. The uniform will be different on Monday, and the stands will be packed. But the setting — on a diamond, with hitters up there to swing — mattered most.

Carly Reed's Journey From Reserve Attacker to Starting Midfielder Lifts UNC Into National Title Game

Carly Reed was quick to correct something. No, doves didn’t descend from the sky holding aloft her bathrobe waiting for her to get out of bed Friday morning. In fact, the North Carolina junior midfielder didn’t feel well at all. She had a blazing headache, the kind that seeps into your bone marrow.

Past, present and future of UNC lacrosse's Kelly family converge at Final Four

The family reunions happen every spring day inside North Carolina's Loudermilk Center for Excellence. Before he sees cousin Patrick at practice, or before he catches up with cousin Timmy in the locker room, Stephen Kelly will walk past uncles David and Bryan.

ACC’s most underrated football talents - Ryan Switzer

North Carolina had so many weapons on offense a year ago, Switzer was easily overlooked. He finished with 55 catches, 697 receiving yards and six touchdowns, which doesn’t stand out too much, but he also returned 22 punts for 302 yards and two scores. He averaged 13.7 yards per punt return and his eight total touchdowns were tied for most among Tar Heels receivers.

Not-too-early look ahead at ACC basketball in 2016-17

The Tar Heels are a proven commodity with six regular contributors back from last season’s national runnerup. Although they’ll miss the production and leadership of Brice Johnson and Marcus Paige, emerging star Joel Berry, ACC Sixth Man of the Year Isaiah Hicks and the duo of Justin Jackson and Kennedy Meeks — are ready to step in.

Turner's Take: This Is What You Work For

UNC women's lacrosse has fewer than 48 hours before they are back in the national championship game, where they were three years ago and triumphed, where they were a year ago and experienced heartbreak. This is what they play for, and here they are. "This is what you live for since you started playing lacrosse. Getting to the game on Sunday is a dream come true."

North Carolina-Loyola and Maryland-Brown in men's lacrosse semis

The semifinals are scheduled to take place at the Linc on Saturday, with North Carolina (10-6) taking on Loyola (14-3) at noon and Maryland (16-2) facing off against Brown (16-2) at 2:30 p.m. The weekend will culminate in a Memorial Day championship set for 1 p.m. "We're certainly the underdogs," UNC coach Joe Breschi said Friday.

Marie McCool, North Carolina get back to NCAA lacrosse championship

North Carolina doesn’t do easy. The Tar Heels defining statistic is probably degree of difficulty. The Heels’ tight, down to the final shot 12-11 national semifinal win over Penn State on Friday was typical UNC. The Tar Heels earned a rematch of last year’s NCAA championship game against Maryland on Sunday at noon.

1-on-1 with UNC coach Larry Fedora: Room for Growth

Larry Fedora: " Even though our offense broke all sorts of records, I think 62 total records this past season, there was still so much room for growth. What we were able to do was break all that down and show the guys, so they were able to see that too. If not, all they will do is just listen to their friends and talk about all the success they had."

UNC baseball coach takes shot at South Carolina

North Carolina’s baseball team is in danger of missing the NCAA Baseball Tournament. Perhaps that was the motivation behind UNC head coach Mike Fox taking to Twitter on Friday night to make a case for his team, albeit with a dig toward the South Carolina Gamecocks. UNC defeated South Carolina 15-0 on April 13 in Charlotte.

Carter, Kay Reach Quarterfinals At NCAA Tennis

No. 1-ranked Hayley Carter and doubles teammate Whitney Kay of the UNC women’s tennis team earned All-America status on Friday by reaching the quarterfinals at the NCAA Singles and Doubles Championship. Carter and Kay, the No. 1 seed in doubles, won in come-from-behind fashion over No. 22 Palina Dubavets and Stefani Stojic of UC Santa Barbara

UNC Women's Lacrosse Advances To NCAA Championship Game

The UNC women's lacrosse team is back in the NCAA championship game for the second straight year and the third time in four years after the #3 Tar Heels defeated Penn State 12-11 Friday in the national semifinals. UNC will play for the national championship at 12 noon on Sunday against the winner of Friday's second semifinal game between top-seeded Maryland and fourth-seeded Syracuse.

Sorting through some post-draft deadline ACC power rankings

2. North Carolina: The roster includes eight players who appeared in at least 30 games for an NCAA tournament runner-up and three heavily recruited freshmen. Justin Jackson has a chance to become the Tar Heels’ go-to scorer, but their leading All-ACC candidate is point guard Joel Berry, who was UNC’s most consistent player in 2015-16.
