Crystal Dunn still evolving ahead of Olympics
Crystal Dunn is the reigning National Women’s Soccer League MVP, but to call the Washington Spirit forward’s game a finished product is to ignore the enormity of her potential. At just 23 years old -- and fresh off a 15-goal NWSL campaign -- Dunn’s ceiling is as high as any player in women’s soccer.

So when I showed up to training camp for the national team last January, I thought, I just have to push for this spot and show what I can do. I was confident. But things don’t always work out how you planned."

Fox mistakes Chris Wondolowski for USWNT's and UNC alum Ashlyn Harris, she responds
Fox’s broadcast of the Copa America Centanario has not been without its issues. Perhaps most embarrassingly, Fox has confused players in the Copa with women from the same country. On Tuesday, it happened to the United States’s Chris Wondowlowski, whose yellow card—as astutely spotted by Carli Llyod—was attributed to Ashlyn Harris.
Tobin Heath set to embrace a new role in her 3rd Olympics

North Carolina's 'yard sale' brings the shoppers out
Normally items sold -- such as jerseys, shoes and lacrosse sticks -- get forwarded to the state's surplus store because technically, at a public university, the equipment purchased is state property. That is why the Tar Heels didn't just give the jerseys to the former players who used to wear them and it's also why the university had to allow the public equal opportunity to purchase them.
