Green, Lawson and Ellington Are Still Growing

I credit Jonas Sahratian who turned Tyler Hansbrough into a beast and apparently found a way to make Ty Lawson, Danny Green and Wayne Ellington taller from last year’s draft camp to the one this season. Draft Express did a little comparison of draft camp measurements for the three Tar Heels since they were present [...]

Heels Throttle Coastal

UNC smacked Coastal Carolina 14-5 Saturday night to put them in prime position to advance to the Super Regionals.  Alex White got shaken up and only pitched 4.2 innings before the bullpen shut Coastal down the rest of the way.

Clemson Losing Oglesby To Europe


A formal announcement is expected Wednesday.

The source told CBSSports.com that Oglesby is headed to either Italy or Spain, and that he’s going to make “NBA money.” The 6-foot-2 guard averaged 13.2 points for the Tigers last season. He is scheduled to leave Sunday for Europe.

Well, that sort of screws Clemson in [...]
