    Kudos to 21 Chapel Hill Tiger athletes who will keep playing in college. Two of those varsity athletes from Chapel Hill High who will go onto play are staying home to attend UNC — track & field’s Harrison Young and volleyball’s Katherine Easterly. Five other athletes are staying in state to play their sports; football’s […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Baseball Format Hurts ACC

    May 25, 2016 at 9:00 am

    Carolina is why the ACC baseball tournament format is wrong. The ACC restricting its baseball tournament to ten teams does not help its member schools that find themselves on the NCAA bubble. If there were no ACC tournament, the Diamond Heels would be a shoe-in for an NCAA tourney bid with their high RPI and top […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: THE NBA’s Worst Nightmare

    May 24, 2016 at 8:50 am

    The Raptors and Thunder have turned the NBA playoffs upside down. Do we know anything about the Toronto Raptors beyond Jerry Stackhouse is one of their assistant coaches and Bismack Biyombo is an old Charlotte Bobcats castoff? Kyle Lowery and DeMar DeRozan are all-star caliber veterans scoring 30 points each, and Biyombo has come off […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: The Final Four — At Last!

    May 23, 2016 at 9:00 am

    Improbably, Carolina lacrosse is finally back. The UNC men’s lacrosse team, which 25 years ago was a regular in the Final Four and won four national championships, broke a frustrating drought by upsetting Notre Dame for the second time this season and made it back to the Final Four for the first time in 23 […]

  • Carolina-Duke Rivalry

    Chansky’s Notebook: Blue Bloods Running Red Hot

    May 20, 2016 at 9:00 am

    Man, the Carolina-Duke rivalry is heating up in May. While the rest of the basketball world focuses on LeBron James winning his 17 straight Eastern Conference playoff game and a probable sweep of Toronto to await the winner of the brutal Golden State-OKC western finals, the blue blood rivalry is dominating the off-season around here.

    Chansky’s Notebook: The Star You Don’t Know

    May 19, 2016 at 8:45 am

      Have you heard of Jackie Bradley Jr. and what he’s doing now? UNC baseball fans may remember Jackie Bradley Jr. when he played for South Carolina against the Tar Heels. Bradley was considered a very good college player, a solid hitter, and outstanding outfielder. He was selected by Boston at No. 40 in the […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Coach K Wins for One Reason – Great Players

    May 18, 2016 at 8:35 am

    Coach K wins for one reason – great players.   If you haven’t seen it yet, Google or YouTube Mike Krzyzewski’s commencement speech at Duke last weekend. It was amazing that a basketball coach, even a Hall of Famer with the most wins in NCAA history, would be the featured speaker on graduation day, […]

    May 17, 2016 at 8:30 am

    Reading between the lines, Justin Jackson was always coming back to school.   Kennedy Meeks had a short-lived stay in the NBA draft pool. When Meeks was not among the 63 players invited to the NBA Combine, he got the hint and withdrew from the draft and, hopefully, got back in the gym to […]

    May 16, 2016 at 9:00 am

    NBA fans are getting the run and gun Western Conference finals they wanted. The flame-throwing Golden State Warriors against the Oklahoma City Thunder, starting Monday night, gives us small ball, big ball, speed, size, athleticism, and personalities galore. The Spurs would have dragged the Warriors into the mud of a slow-paced series that would’ve […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Committee of One

    May 13, 2016 at 9:03 am

    You want to know how loyal Roy Williams is? Williams announced this week that he was having his right knee replaced to rid him of the pain that dogged him through the past basketball season due to the bone-on-bone deterioration of the joint. But Williams knew he was going to do it all along. […]
