Tar Heel starter Rodney Hutchison picked up his first loss since February 25th as the Wolfpack out-hit UNC, 12-6.

Brittany Pickett Reinventing Her Way To Success

After tossing a complete-game shutout against N.C. State in Friday's series opener, Brittany Pickett registered another Monday. By doing so, she became the first Tar Heel to throw two complete-game shutouts in the same ACC series since Lori Spingola against Florida State in 2011. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of Pickett's outings were how they differed. (GoHeels.com)

Ex-Panthers safety Tre Boston looking for work - and the reason he's still unemployed

Tre Boston, who lives in Charlotte during the offseason, isn’t sure his social activism is the reason he’s unemployed. But he’s had a hard time coming up with any other reasons. “I have no idea. But if I told you there’s a 25-year-old out there, no nagging injuries, no off-field issues, 10 career picks, 180 tackles-plus, three sacks, what would you tell me?” Boston said Monday. (Charlotte Observer)

How Roy Williams' Scheduling Philosophy Differs From Dean Smith's

Normally, a team at the level of Elon will never get a home game against a P5 opponent, let alone one that is in their back yard. It also never would have happened under Roy Williams’ mentor Dean Smith. Famously, one of the biggest pieces of advice that Frank McGuire gave Smith was to never schedule in-state opponents. Smith strictly held to that philosophy. (Tar Heel Blog)

Chansky’s Notebook: Good Scheduling For All

North Carolina has perhaps its best-ever basketball schedule. UNC released its non-conference games for 2018-19, a week after the ACC announced the home-and-away matchups for the coming season. In both cases, Roy Williams’ Tar Heel team looks to have hit the jackpot. Let’s start with the non-conference lineup. The headliner has to be the CBS Sports Classic. (Chapelboro.com)

A Case For The Naismith Hall Of Fame: Vince Carter

Vince Carter’s work in the NBA has been outstanding and is what should get him into Springfield. Overshadowed by not winning a championship, Carter is about to reach the 25,000-point mark, he has more than 6,300 rebounds and 4,600 assists. He averaged 20-plus points in 10 consecutive seasons in one stretch, six times averaging 24 or more per season. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

UNC, ECU, NC State, and Duke can make college baseball history

UNC, ECU, N.C. State and Duke have never played in the NCAA baseball tournament the same year. That will almost certainly change next month with all four teams ranked in the the top 15 in one national poll. The four teams will get together Tuesday in what could wind up being a preview of the Super Regional round, or heck, a College World Series preview. (Charlotte Observer)

Kenny Selmon waited for the right opportunity to compete in the 400-meter hurdles for the first time this spring. Finally, on Saturday at the Hurricane Collegiate Invitational, that time arrived. And in his season debut in the event, Selmon didn't disappoint. Competing in the 400-meter hurdles, Selmon ran a 49.00, the fastest time in the nation so far this outdoor season. (GoHeels.com)

For Shalane Flanagan, this wasn’t the finish she wanted

Shalane Flanagan said during the prologue to the 122nd Boston Marathon that she expected this to be her final shot at winning her home-state race, the one she cherishes most. Flanagan finished sixth among American women and seventh overall, an honorable showing but not her desired one. It was hardly a poor performance for Flanagan. Just an anticlimactic one. (Boston.com)

UNC Coaching Staff Challenges 2018-19 Squad at Awards Ceremony

North Carolina's basketball team held its postseason awards ceremony on Wednesday night at the Carolina Inn. The annual event put a bow on the 2017-18 season, but as Adam Lucas wrote for the school's web site, this year's version was less about celebration and more about looking ahead. The UNC coaches specifically challenged the members of the 2018-19 team. (Inside Carolina)

Local Lore: The Bunker Beneath UNC

Oddly enough, one particularly large and significant shelter could be found at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Relatively far away from Washington DC, the shelter on the UNC campus was meant for one purpose: to protect a computer. The UNIVAC 1105 in the basement of Phillips Hall, one of the three ever manufactured, was installed in 1959. (Chapelboro.com)
