The Cavaliers were the more aggressive team and their shot-making lifted them to a 4-1 win over the previously unbeaten and league regular-season champion Tar Heels in the ACC Tournament semifinals at Duke’s Sheffield Tennis Center.

UNCERTAIN PATH: Early-entry ex-UNC star McAdoo in NBA playoffs

North Carolina forward J.P. Tokoto’s recent decision to forego his senior season and enter the NBA Draft surprised a lot of people. Not James Michael McAdoo. McAdoo faced the exact same choice last year — come back to UNC for his senior season or embark on an uncertain path. Even after being undrafted and spending most of his rookie year in the D-League, McAdoo said recently he was happy with his decision to go pro. Of course, it helps that he was speaking from the locker room at Golden State, the No. 1 seed in the West, which enters the playoffs at home today (3:30 p.m., WTVD) against the No. 8 seed New Orleans Pelicans.

'LORD BYRON': Golf great made magic at Hope Valley C.C. in 1945

It’s been 70 years, but Gordon Perry remembers it like it was yesterday. The date was April 1, 1945, Easter Sunday, and there he was at Hope Valley Country Club watching one of his childhood heroes, golf icon Byron “Lord Byron” Nelson, accept a $1,000 war bond for winning the Durham Open. The tournament took place a little more than a month before V-E Day, the day the Allied Forces formally accepted Nazi Germany’s unconditional surrender to end World War II in Europe.
