MLB Mock Draft 2017: J.B. Bukauskas and Logan Warmoth slated to be first round picks

Carolina's strong campaign has been largely helped by one of the best college pitchers in the country, J.B. Bukauskas. The right-hander is a little smaller than your average MLB pitcher, but he has the stuff to make it work at the next level. There is one other Tar Heel who seems like a good bet to hear his name on the first night of the draft, and that is shortstop Logan Warmoth. (Tar Heel Blog)

ACC coaches aren’t laughing about the impact a new early signing period from Dec. 20-22 has on their schedules. UNC's Larry Fedora added, “From my understanding, the ACC and SEC were the only ones to vote no on the package.

Tyler Lynn's second walk-off hit in as many home ACC wins lifted No. 3 UNC to a 3-2 victory over Duke in 10 innings Friday at Boshamer Stadium.

3 things to know about Mitchell Trubisky after Bears rookie minicamp

By all accounts, Mitch Trubisky impressed coaches and teammates with his ability to quickly process everything that was thrown at him. While it’s dangerous to suggest a player will have success in the NFL after a few padless practices, it’s encouraging that Trubisky’s first series of pro sessions were without any major incident or concern.

Oakland Raiders General Manager Reggie McKenzie shared his breakdown of rookie running back Elijah Hood: “So far he’s done extremely well. The young man is extremely tough. He’s a physical runner. He’s definitely more of a between-the-tackles banger than he is a receiving threat or an outside runner, but he has enough speed to bounce it outside.” (Oakland Raiders)

UNC baseball back on top in ACC after 2-year hiccup

UNC’s baseball program is back in a familiar spot — atop its division in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Carolina’s nursing pioneer

In August 1950, Elizabeth L. Kemble took a road trip across North Carolina. She traveled nearly 600 miles from Murphy to Manteo, stopping at filling stations, offices, and stores along the way to chat with her new state neighbors. She wanted to know them, to understand their needs. That’s what made the founding dean of the UNC School of Nursing such a powerful figure. (
