Sylvia Hatchell joins the prestigious 1,000-win club

North Carolina women’s basketball coach Sylvia Hatchell’s career has marked over four decades of excellence, obstacles and hard work. From her first win as a head coach at Francis Marion in 1976 to her now 32-year tenure at UNC, Hatchell has instilled a winning culture for every team she has coached. The constant hard work payed off on Tuesday afternoon in Myrtle Beach, S.C., as the Tar Heels faced off against struggling Grambling State (3-6).

Kea shines, Cherry struggles as UNC women's basketball falls, 85-84, to South Alabama

Paris Kea could have been the name in everyone’s mouths after scoring 31 points, one short of her career high, to go along with a career-high 11 assists for an excellent performance against Southern Alabama. Perhaps it should have been Janelle Bailey, whose efficient inside scoring kept North Carolina afloat on a night when many of its normal shots weren’t falling.
