UNC gives U.S. kick


Mia Hamm and Kristine Lilly -- two UNC alumni who rank 1-2 in career scoring for the U.S. national team -- aren't playing in the Beijing Olympics. Hamm has retired. Lilly has taken a year off to have a baby. But the American team that will face Brazil in the Olympic gold-medal final Thursday night in Beijing still sports four Tar Heels among its 18 players. No other college has produced more than two players on this women's squad. (Raleigh News & Observer)
