Xylina McDaniel, daugher of Xavier McDaniel, commits to UNC

Back in his NBA days, with his menacing physical game, shaved head and X-Man moniker, Xavier McDaniel liked to boast about the playgrounds in Columbia, S.C., his hometown, playing against girls and showing them no mercy whatsoever. That attitude did not soften much when, 16 years ago, his second daughter, Xylina, was born. All those years being pushed and pushed around, challenged and drilled by her father transformed Xylina McDaniel of Blythewood, S.C., into perhaps the most relentlessly aggressive player in her class. Just Monday, before she made a pledge to North Carolina, the 6-foot-2 forward watched her future team work on post defense. (ESPN.com)
