Stuart Scott’s memoir uplifting

This is not a happy story. The very nature of a posthumous memoir about living with a serious illness means it’s a tale that is not going to end well. However, Stuart Scott’s book is also an uplifting account of love, family ties, parenthood, happiness, determination and personal success.

Zach Wright Pushes UNC Men's Soccer Past Broncos

Zach Wright’s first-half goal propelled No. 5 North Carolina to a 3-0 victory over the Santa Clara Broncos Sunday night at Fetzer Field.

The sophomore’s header marked his first goal of the season and second in his career.

Video: UNC's Theo Pinson nails long distance jump shot

While just messing around beneath the banners of UNC's Dean Dome, sophomore wing Theo Pinson launched and nailed a long distance jump shot. The shot was deep from the court's sideline.

Ty Lawson will help Rockets rely less on James Harden

The Houston Rockets’ James Harden was one of just four players who used more than 3,000 possessions (shooting, passing or turning the ball over), leading the league by being directly involved with more than 3,300 plays. No place was this burden more apparent than in saving late shot-clock possessions... This is a problem the addition of Ty Lawson might solve.

Kevin Reddick Waived by Panthers

The Carolina Panthers began the process of reducing their roster to 75 by parting ways with eight players Sunday.
