NCAA hands up notice of allegations to UNC

Closer, yes, but no closure for those anticipating the end of the academics scandal that both has hurt credibility and continues to impact recruiting in athletics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. UNC officials have 90 days to let the NCAA know what they plan to do with a notice of allegations from the governing body that is poised to punish the school not only for roughly 18 years of irregular course offerings but also possible infractions of NCAA bylaws.

No. 1 seed Louisville tops UNC 7-4 in ACC tournament

The key to beating No. 1 seed Louisville was simple, Mike Fox said following North Carolina's play-in game win against Virginia Tech Tuesday: play a perfect game. 
 
By starting with a leadoff home run, it appeared No. 8 seed UNC was on track to do just that Wednesday night. But the illusion of perfection can't last forever, and UNC quickly began showing signs that it wasn't capable of putting together the kind of game Fox needed out of his players to take down the best team in the league.

BATTLE OF BLUES: Tar Heels nip PSU, to meet Duke in NCAA semis

For the fifth time in the last seven years, the North Carolina women’s lacrosse team is final four-bound. Despite trailing unseeded Big Ten champion Penn State by as many as four goals in the second half — matching the team’s largest deficit this season — the No. 2 Tar Heels used their signature grit to push back against the Nittany Lions for an 11-8 win Saturday. With the win, the Tar Heels are bound for the final four in Philadelphia to face rival Duke with a national title game berth on the line.
