Editorial mistaken about Hatchell

As a women’s basketball season ticketholder, a faculty member and a female, I felt compelled to respond to the misleading Daily Tar Heel editorial from Thursday on the women’s basketball situation. Many recent articles and letters have touted claims that women’s basketball is being offered up as the sacrificial lamb in our scandal to save the revenue sports.

A Life Inspired: Jessica Breland's heart-stirring ascension

Chicago Sky forward Jessica Breland has had to overcome a lot in her lifetime, from overcoming Hodgkin's lymphoma to placing her career on hold; all on the path of becoming an WNBA All-star. Breland's story is for basketball fans worldwide, in hopes that they will find strength in her struggle to overcome.

Refusing to Argue With Stupidity

The fact that the N&O editorial board has resorted to throwing the kitchen sink at the UNC scandal in hopes that by throwing around inflammatory terms like “sexism” they may just catch the eye of some national hot-take artist. That or their target audience is literally PackPride. Either way it’s truly a recklessness that reeks of desperation.

No One Scapegoating Hatchell

Head Coach Sylvia Hatchell’s contract extends three more years, to 2018.

Ex-North Carolina player: Women's basketball being made a 'scapegoat'

Even though North Carolina likely won't respond to the NCAA's Notice of Allegations for another few weeks, one of the school's former women's basketball players fears she knows what's coming. Meghan Austin expects the Tar Heels athletic department to sacrifice its tradition-rich women's basketball program in hopes of avoiding serious punishment for its two biggest revenue producers, football and men's basketball.

Stephanie Watts committed to UNC, East-West All-Star Game

Stephanie Watts could have walked away from her commitment to play at UNC when the Tar Heels’ program went through the turmoil of coach Sylvia Hatchell’s health issues, the departure of assistant coaches, an NCAA probe into academic fraud and the loss of the entire four-player 2013 recruiting class to transfers. But she stayed firm and is already enrolled in summer classes in Chapel Hill.
