Four Former UNC Women's Soccer Players Called To National Team Training Camp
Four former UNC women's soccer players are training this month with the U.S. National Team - Ashlyn Harris, Meghan Klingenberg, Allie Long, and Crystal Dunn.

Spurs’ Danny Green still hungry after finally gaining defensive recognition
The work continued this summer as Danny Green — the only player in Spurs franchise history to record at least 700 3-pointers and 300 blocks — focused on improving his long-range touch after consecutive seasons shooting under 40 percent. Having turned 30 on June 22 and about to embark on his ninth NBA season, Green realizes he’s no longer one of the young guys.

Kentucky Signee Quade Green Talks To Mohamed Bamba Every Day
Quade Green, the Kentucky Wildcats’ point guard from the 2017 class, is very close to uncommitted 5-star center Mohamed Bamba, and he’s been very open about how hard he is recruiting him to join the next crop of talent moving to Lexington this summer. Bamba’s close friendships with Green and Hamidou Diallo are a big reason why many are predicting he will pick Kentucky in the end.
After shooting slump last season, Danny Green could return to form this season
There is reason to believe that Danny Green will bounce back this season. Green received LASIK eye surgery over the summer, meaning there was a good chance that his eyes were bothering him. If that’s the case, receiving this surgery should give a boost to Green’s shooting. If that wasn’t enough, Green’s shooting was much better in the postseason.
Camping With Danny Green
Danny Green grew up in Long Island, New York, about 50 miles away from Madison Square Garden. As a kid going to basketball camps though, the NBA felt a million miles away. Green remembers attending local summer camps that didn’t always have serious instruction or traveling long distances to attend top-flight camps. Now, Green hopes to change that for kids in Texas.

Spurs' Danny Green undergoes LASIK eye surgery
For most of the season, San Antonio Spurs sharpshooter Danny Green wasn't so sharp. Maybe it was his rhythm, maybe it was diminished opportunities, or maybe he just couldn't see where he was shooting. So, using a modest portion of that $40 million contract he signed last summer, Green decided to fix the problem with LASIK surgery.
While the shots aren’t falling, Danny Green’s focus is on wins and playing defense
Danny Green doesn’t need any reminders that he’s struggling with his shot this season. He knows, and Green isn’t naive, either. He understands there are, and could be more questions surrounding that new four-year, $40 million deal he signed over the summer to remain in San Antonio. Did the Spurs overpay? Is Green putting too much pressure on himself to perform?
