CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Harrison Barnes was looking at a different version of himself. He immediately recognized the game video I queued up on my laptop at the Dean Smith Center, even though it was of local-access quality, from a distant camera angle.
Police should have considered a 13-year-old robbery suspect's age when he was questioned without his parents present, a divided Supreme Court ruled Thursday, concluding a child in such a situation would not have reasonably felt free to walk away from the interrogation.
ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) -- Alex Ovechkin was back on the ice, skating through Monday's practice in a light blue jersey that looked more suitable for Chapel Hill than the nation's capital. He was done with the week off he needed to heal an undisclosed injury and pronounced himself "ready to go," possibly as soon as Tuesday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes.
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- It began as soon as Harrison Barnes stepped to the free-throw line with just under six minutes remaining on a warm night in South Florida with unranked North Carolina trailing Miami by a point. In truth, it had begun as far back as late November. He had already heard it from Champaign to Charlottesville, and now, as he the stood at the line, Barnes, the first freshman ever voted preseason first-team All-America by The Associated Press, was hearing it again:
In mid-interview for a new movie last week, actress Salma Hayek suddenly shrieked and scrambled out of her seat, over the shoulders of co-star Maya Rudolph sitting next to her. Clutching frantically at Rudolph and another co-star, Maria Bello, she uttered a blood-curdling scream, "Somebody do something!" Bello, also clearly unnerved at the sight of something off-camera, comforted Hayek as she teetered on the arm of a director's chair in 4-inch heels. "It's OK," Bello repeated, "We got you. Don't worry."
CHAPEL HILL, NC -- As the final buzzer sounded at this utterly forgettable installment of college basketball's greatest rivalry, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski pointed toward a young man in the crowd standing a few rows behind the scorer's table. The tall, strapping fellow, whose barrel chest was bursting from under his light gray suit and light blue tie, pointed back at Coach K to acknowledge the gesture of respect.
Question: What are the appropriate ratios in a family budget for expenses such as food, transportation, entertainment, etc.? I want to keep my spending balanced and need a guideline to do so. -- L. P., Chapel Hill, N.C.
For Jonathan and Michelle Opp of Chapel Hill, N.C., the Internet, like electricity and indoor plumbing, is an indispensable part of their lives. Always armed with their iPhones, they regularly check travel information and weather forecasts, and even use their devices to find answers to offbeat questions. But there are also major differences in the way the married couple use their devices and Internet connections.
The kid who delivers your pizza may be charging you an extra buck for gas, but for the guy that trucked the tomatoes, hauled the dough or milked the cows, passing along the fuel increase isn't as easy as pie.
Photographs of a "person of interest" in the case of slain college student Eve Carson show him possibly using her ATM card, said Chief Brian Curran of the Chapel Hill, North Carolina, police on Saturday.
Thousands of students from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill gathered Thursday to remember student body president Eve Carson, who was shot and killed in a suburban neighborhood near campus.
In 10 years at Sports Illustrated I've probably spent more time with North Carolina's Roy Williams than any other college basketball coach. I've profiled many of his players, once spent 10 days behind the scenes with his 2002 Kansas team, and wrote a long feature in 2003 about his internal struggle to decide if he should leave Lawrence for Chapel Hill.
It was a simple exchange, really, a moment that laid bare Roy Williams's vision to create the most lethal attacking weapon in college basketball. In the fall of 2002, not long after rejoining Williams's staff at Kansas, Steve Robinson stood next to his boss during a preseason practice and blanched at the scene before him, a chaotic blur of bodies in motion. The Jayhawks hadn't operated this way seven years earlier, when Robinson had left to coach Tulsa (and later Florida State). "I'm a little uncomfortable with how fast you're playing," Robinson told Williams, who cackled like a mad scientist. "Good," Williams replied. "Because I want to play even faster."
