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.

Slocum, Langley share 2nd round lead at Wyndham Championship

Heath Slocum needs a strong finish at the Wyndham Championship to earn a spot in the PGA Tour’s postseason. Scott Langley might not be on the playoff bubble — but he sure knows how his friend is feeling.

Camilo Villegas got away from golf for a little while, and his game came back.

A recharged Villegas shot a 7-under 63 on Thursday to take a one-stroke lead after the first round at the Wyndham Championship.

North Carolina natives Webb Simpson and William McGirt shot 64, and Scott Langley, Heath Slocum, Paul Casey, Andrew Loupe and Martin Laird were another stroke back in the final event before the PGA Tour’s playoffs.

Villegas hasn’t won since 2010 and has only two top-10 finishes in the last three years.

After pulling out of the Canadian Open after one round last month, he spent the past week back in his native Colombia for “a little recharge” — leaving his clubs behind in Florida.

“I just thought it was appropriate to hop on a plane and see mom and dad and recharge a little bit,” Villegas said.

It helped him make a late charge up the Sedgefield Country Club leaderboard.

Starting on the back nine, he had three early birdies before getting even hotter late: He followed his birdie on the fourth with an eagle on the par-5 fifth, placing his second shot about 3 feet from the stick.
