'A little at a time': Intramural and club teams make changes in light of COVID-19

Despite COVID-19, Campus Recreation will provide limited sports programs for students in accordance with social distancing regulations. One of the biggest changes for intramural sports will be the absence of the larger, team-oriented sports and competition. The smaller or individual intramural sports will happen, with those that usually take place inside set to be moved outside. All club teams are going to be operating on a practice-only basis for the foreseeable future, but even practice could be cancelled depending on evolving COVID-19 guidelines, said Tori Hooker, a senior assistant director of sports programs at Campus Recreation.

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.
