Southern Conference to keep championships in North Carolina (Yahoo Sports)

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 13:14:28 PDT


The Southern Conference will keep four league championships in North Carolina despite the NCAA and the Atlantic Coast Conference withdrawing championships because of the state law restricting the rights of LGBT people. The league said it will honor commitments for these tournaments: men's soccer in Greensboro, men's and women's basketball in Asheville and men's golf in Pinehurst. ''We don't want to punish the local host communities by pulling the championships out of the state this year,'' Commissioner John Iamarino said Friday.

Men broke key race barrier, now back on Vanderbilt campus (Yahoo Sports)

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 12:29:12 PDT

The return of Perry Wallace and Godfrey Dillard, part of a candid conversation unfolding this year at Vanderbilt, marks the latest milestone in the school's long, sometimes painful history with race relations. It had been 50 years since Wallace and Dillard huddled together in the locker room at halftime of a freshman game in Starkville, Mississippi, holding hands and trembling after rival fans spat, yelled slurs and threw things at them on the court.

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 15:49:37 PDT


For now, all North Carolina State freshman Omer Yurtseven can do is work on his game and be patient. With all the attention on possible one-and-done freshman Dennis Smith Jr., the Turkish 7-footer gives the Wolfpack a second five-star prospect on an overhauled and potential-filled roster.
