Column: American sports need to be put on pause

"There are simply too many people that have no problem cheering for the athlete that wears the number 7 on their back when they compete but have difficulty with speaking up about how wrong it was for Jacob Blake to get shot by police 7 times in the back."

Preview: UNC women's basketball heads into ACC Tournament needing to win it all

The North Carolina women’s basketball team has had an up and down season and with an at-large NCAA Tournament bid looking unlikely, enters the ACC Tournament this week with everything to play for.  In head coach Courtney Banghart's first year, the Tar Heels finished 16-13 overall and 7-11 in the ACC, earning them a No. 12 seed in the ACC Tournament. That gives UNC a first-round matchup against No. 13 seed Wake Forest.

UNC women's basketball suffers seventh straight loss as Duke completes season sweep

In the midst of a near month-long losing streak, the North Carolina women’s basketball team played with desperation in a senior night matchup against Duke on Sunday.  When the Tar Heels entered their first game against the Blue Devils on Feb. 6, they were 16-6, third in the ACC, and firmly in the discussion for an NCAA tournament bid. After suffering a 71-61 loss in Cameron Indoor Stadium in that game, UNC has undergone a collapse.
