Hey Heels, welcome back to campus for spring semester! Here's what you missed:
- "Every shot I shot, I thought was going in. When you feel like that, I mean, it makes the game so much more fun." Luke Maye led the charge in last night's 96-66 victory against Boston College — he finished the game with 32 points and 18 rebounds, both career highs.
- Joshua Daniel Edwards, 25, was indicted on all charges by an Orange County Grand Jury yesterday for the Nov. 2 fire at the Davie Poplar tree. He's been charged with six different felonies.
- Orange County schools are facing a funding crisis due to proposed legislation that would reduce the size of elementary school classes. According to a spokesperson for Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools, the school system would need the equivalent of two elementary schools to provide enough classrooms for students.
