National perspective on UNC amended allegations focused on basketball
UNC released the NCAA's amended notice of allegations on Monday, jump-starting a case that has been stalled in procedural limbo since August.

Danny Green Biggest X-Factor in Spurs' Hunt for 6th Title
Danny Green played so well the four seasons prior to 2015-16 (10.2 points per game, 42.3% on three-pointers) that many considered the 4-year/$40M extension he signed with San Antonio last July a hometown discount.
