Teammates pile on Ja’Quan Newton after his buzzer-beating 3-pointer at Chapel Hill, N.C. on Feb. 27. Miami beat North Carolina 91-88. (Grant Halverson/Getty Images) [Video: a walk in NYC with Larranaga] Well-rested Miami, hoping to move up the NCAA Tournament bracket, opens the ACC tourney against the team it beat for its biggest win of the season. Previewing the quarterfinal between the Hurricanes and North Carolina: Records: Miami (22-8, 11-7 ACC); North Carolina (23-9, 11-7).When: 9 p.m. Thursday. Where: Barclays Center, Brooklyn, N.Y. (capacity: 19,000). What’s at stake: Miami jumped off the bubble with its Feb. 27 win in Chapel Hill. UM is 1-3 against the RPI top 25. UNC, currently No. 5 in RPI, was its only win against that group. It lost to Virginia and Duke — two teams it could meet if it advances in Brooklyn — and at Clemson.

Gary D. Robertson, Associated Press Updated 7:20 pm, Wednesday, February 7, 2018 RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The North Carolina General Assembly signaled action later this week on environment, education and possibly elections administration legislation, ending a nearly monthlong hiatus as lawmakers returned to Raleigh. A Senate committee voted late Wednesday for legislation designed to address pollution discharge permitting and high-tech testing of unregulated contaminants in response to the discharge of the chemical GenX into the Cape Fear River, the primary drinking water source for Wilmington. A Bladen County plant released GenX, used to make Teflon and other coatings, into the river for decades, officials say.

Anthony Barthell thought that the first time he wore a pair speedskates would be his last. "I actually got my speedskates and I couldn’t cross over," Barthell said Wednesday. "I remember going home to my father’s house and I told him I was ready to throw my equipment away, I’m done with this." The High Point, N.C., native, heeding his father’s advice, stuck with it and has gone from a frustrated beginner to the seasoned coach of the U.S. short track speedskating team at the 2018 Winter Olympics. "I didn’t know anything about speedskating until I saw it in 1998, maybe," Barthell said. "I just remember seeing a little old lady with her arms swinging and a bucket helmet. And in 2002, I watched it again and I was, like, ‘I like this.’" Today, Barthell, 40, is one of the few African American coaches in speedskating. He leads an eight-person squad that’s a mixture of Olympic veterans and rookies like 18-year-old Maame Biney, the first black … [Read more...] about Skating takes Olympics coach from North Carolina to Pyeongchang
