U.S. Winter Storm Diego walloped parts of the South this weekend, leaving hundreds of thousands without power in North and South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. Many schools in the region were expected to cancel classes on Monday due to the severe weather. North Carolina declared a state of emergency over the weekend in preparation for the storm. In at least one part of the state, Diego dumped 18.5 inches of snow, according to The Weather Channel. “This is a snowstorm, not a snowfall,” said North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper. “It’s serious.” The following schools were expected to be closed on Monday, according to WRAL-TV: Adamance Burlington Schools, Carolina Career College, Carter Community School, Caswell County Schools, Central Park School/Durham, Chapel Hill/Car Schools, Chatham Charter School, Chatham County Schools, Crosscheck Charter School, Durham Public Schools, East Wake Academy, Edgecombe County Schools, Endeavor … [Read more...] about Schools Closed By Southern Snow Storm: Will North Carolina, Virginia, Others Cancel Classes Amid Winter Storm Diego?

Jan Gangelhoff was 56 when she died from cancer in March 2005. This was unfortunate for Jan, family and friends, and perhaps in the wake of Friday’s news from the NCAA Division I Committee on Infractions, for the legacy of Minnesota’s finest on-court days in men’s basketball. Gangelhoff was the office manager for Clem Haskins’ program, and came forward to inform first the St. Paul Pioneer Press and then enforcement officials of having written 400 pieces of course work for 20 basketball players from 1995 to 1998. This revelation wound up taking credit away from the Gophers for the 1997 Big Ten championship, a place in the 1997 Final Four and the 1998 NIT championship. It also cost Haskins his job and Bobby Jackson official recognition for his greatness as a Gopher. But here’s the deal: If Jan still was with us, perhaps she could recall a few of those papers finding their way to non-basketball players — a late-breaking revelation that this aggressive … [Read more...] about North Carolina’s approach to NCAA charges might just work for Gophers
Associated Press Updated 10:49 pm, Sunday, March 18, 2018 Texas A&M had its big men relentlessly snatching down loose rebounds, its wing players knocking down shots and an entire roster playing with aggressive confidence. Reigning national champion North Carolina found no match for any of it Sunday. The seventh-seeded Aggies defeated the Tar Heels 86-65 in a West Regional second-round game in Charlotte, N.C., marking the second straight year the titleholder has been bounced from March Madness before the Sweet 16. “We had a certain togetherness today,” said Texas A&M’s Tyler Davis, who had 18 points and nine rebounds. “We didn’t have the fastest start, but we were together the whole time.” For the second-seeded Tar Heels (26-11), any hope of making a third straight Final Four or repeating as champ was all but gone barely 90 seconds into the second half as the Aggies (22-12) went up 20. Davis and fellow 6-foot-10 forward Robert … [Read more...] about North Carolina won’t repeat as national champion
