Heels stomp Cougars

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. â€" Pigs did not fly and hell didn't freeze over. North Carolina flexed its considerable muscle, and an outmanned and outgunned College of Charleston team succumbed, 108-70, to the third-ranked Tar Heels on Wednesday night in front of a crowd of 20,543 at the Dean E. Smith Center. "I knew this was going to be a tough game," said Charleston coach Bobby Cremins. "They're a great team, tough to defend, very physical. I'm disappointed we didn't compete better."

One Game, One Trophy

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. â€" Bob Stoops posed next to the crystal football and played along with a wave of photographers. They asked him to look to the left, he did. They asked him to smile, he did. Any shot they wanted Wednesday inside a hotel ballroom, he gave them. Then a shutterbug shouted to the Oklahoma coach, telling him to hold up his finger, showing who's No. 1. Stoops tilted his head, stared at the guy and kept his hands still.

USC's Cook opts for draft

COLUMBIA â€" Despite pleading this week from his family, South Carolina junior tight end Jared Cook is expected to enter the NFL draft, sources close to the situation confirmed Wednesday. Additionally, a source said safety Darian Stewart confirmed that he would return for his senior season. In the past day or so, both players have made their decisions known to the coaching staff.

Thrills, chills in Chapel Hill

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. â€" Goliath wasn't coming off a loss to Boston College. Unfortunately for the College of Charleston, the North Carolina Tar Heels sure didn't play like a last-place Atlantic Coast Conference team. More like the guys favored to romp their way to the 2009 NCAA title. Otherwise, the Cougars' 108-70 loss Wednesday night at the Dean E. Smith Center was one big harmonious contradiction.

Carney triumphs by two strokes

ISLE OF PALMS â€" John Carney, the head pro at Pine Valley Country Club in Wilmington, N.C., followed his opening-round 64 with a 68 Wednesday and earned a two-shot victory over Bob Boyd in the Wild Dunes E-Z-Go Pro-Am.
