Curry brothers making marks at mid-majors

"I could shoot myself." That's what Winthrop coach Randy Peele said last week about his failure to seriously recruit Seth Curry out of high school. Peele should put away the rhetorical gun. A lot of sheepish college basketball coaches are feeling the same way about the Curry brothers, Davidson superstar Stephen and Liberty freshman Seth. Despite superior basketball bloodlines from father Dell Curry, a former NBA standout, both brothers were passed over by major programs only to wind up as mid-major stars.

Smelley leaving Gamecocks

COLUMBIA â€" On the same day South Carolina netted a quarterbacks coach, it lost a quarterback. Redshirt sophomore Chris Smelley announced Friday afternoon through the school that he intends to transfer with the intention of playing baseball at another school. "It's been a difficult decision, something I've been thinking and praying about for a while," Smelley said via a release.

What kind of show can fans anticipate?

COLUMBIA â€" Realistically, how could you know what to expect tonight inside the Colonial Life Arena? No, not the basketball game. Auburn and South Carolina will likely play a tight one, settled in the final minutes, in the teams' SEC openers. But what about the environment? It was a hot-button subject in Dave Odom's time here, and especially as that tenure wound down.

Cougars guard against 'letdown'

Although it may seem a bit bizarre to talk about a basketball team having a "letdown" after consecutive losses, that may be a concern for College of Charleston coach Bobby Cremins. Charleston enters today's 4 p.m. Southern Conference game against Georgia Southern at Carolina First Arena coming off losses to Davidson and North Carolina, and after getting ramped up to play against two of the nation's elite teams can the Cougars muster the necessary effort to beat the Eagles?

Cardinals-Panthers offenses ready to take off

CHARLOTTE â€" They take up three of the four receiver spots on the NFC Pro Bowl squad. Another is having a breakout year and a fifth is one of the league's top blockers at the position. Today's NFC Divisional playoff between the Carolina Panthers (12-4) and Arizona Cardinals (10-7) overflows with talent, speed, diversity and strength at receiver.
