  • What happens to a legacy?

    Dean Smith, the legendary former coach of the University of North Carolina, passed away Sunday just three weeks short of his 84th birthday.  
    Smith was a coaching icon, having been at the helm of the Tar Heels for 36 years from 1961-1997.
    The Tar Heels were perennial national powers during his time, winning two national championships and playing in 11 Final Fours.  
    Advanced dementia was reportedly the major contributor to Smith’s death, which, though there probably isn’t a good way to die, this is one of the worst.

  • Winning streaks over for Fillies and Breds

    Saturday night took a toll on the two-game winning streak of the Fillies and the four-game streak of the Thorobreds as both lost on the road.  
    The Fillies dropped a 57-48 verdict to Bishop Brossart in Alexandria as they fell behind early and could not catch up.  
    The Thorobreds trailed by 11 at the half but Collins went on a 17-to-2 run to open the second half for the 63-51 win.
    Brossart scored the first six points of the Fillies’ contest before senior Whitney Gray scored with nearly two minutes gone in the game.
