Erlana Larkins adjusts to the pros

Erlana Larkins stood beside the Liberty team bus, idling in the bowels of the Verizon Center, as she waited for a ride to the train station and a trip back to New York. The Liberty had just won a rare afternoon game in Washington, but for Larkins, it was another game spent on the inactive list. While she experienced first-class travel with the Tar Heels, Larkins is not used to sitting on the bench, no matter how nice the surroundings.

After the season, as many WNBA players do, she went overseas. Unable to crack the starting lineup for the powerhouse Shock, Latta has proven she can hang with the world’s best by leading the Israeli League with a 23.2 scoring average.

Marion Jones' feats at UNC upheld

As Marion Jones gets ready to go to federal prison, memorabilia from the life of the fallen track superstar have already been locked away at UNC, the alma mater of the woman once touted as the world's fastest. But just as swiftly as North Carolina athletics officials stowed away photographs of Jones reveling on the Olympic stage, the coaches and administrators resolved to stand by her college achievements in basketball and track.

Ivory Latta returned to North Carolina's Carmichael Auditorium to smile for the cameras one more time.

Ivory Latta rises to the rafters

A large part of Ivory Latta wished her jersey were still on her back. Instead, the diminutive point guard who was known as much for her energy on the court as her swift playing style and her lethal 3-point shot will have to settle for having her No. 12 in the Carmichael Auditorium rafters. The school retired Latta's jersey during a ceremony at halftime of the Tar Heels' 99-78 win over Georgia Tech.

Holon Signs Ivory Latta

Holon completed their foreigners' roster by signing point guard Ivory Latta, University of North Carolina graduate who's currently playing for the WNBA's Detroit Shock. Ivory Latta (22, 5'6) is the type of player that you either love or hate, but you can't be indifferent towards. She is fast as lightning, full of energy and enthusiasm, hasn't met a shot she didn't like and models her game after Allen Iverson.

Salisbury hires Charisse Mapp as head coach

Michael Vienna, Athletics Director at Salisbury University, announced today that Charisse Mapp will become the ninth women's basketball head coach in the 52-year history of the program.

Latta Endures Rookie Pains

They are opposite sides of the same sterling coin, two of the best female point guards ever to perform in the ACC. North Carolina’s Ivory Latta was ACC women’s player of the year in 2006, ending a run of six straight Blue Devils winning the honor. Lindsey Harding got the award back for Duke in 2007. Latta arrived in college a star and remained a star, helping UNC reach the past two Final Fours. ( -- WRAL.com)
