I guess I had something to do with North Carolina winning the NCAA basketball title this year, but the Tar Heels seem to be making news and sometimes it’s the unwelcome kind.

Well, come on, you didn’t think I’d just skip it and not write long and lovingly about it, did you? The North Carolina Tar Heels won their sixth national championship in men’s basketball Monday, dispatching tiny (in school population) Gonzaga in an official-marred 71-65 final.

HUTCHINSON, Kan — Ty’Lik Evans stepped to the free-throw line with the season coming down to the last seven seconds of regulation as Georgia Highlands stared at a one-point deficit.
It’s amazing how quickly things happen and how perceptions can change on the outcome of a ball game. For instance, in one fell swoop, South Carolina became the favorite team of more than one-half of America by simply defeating the hated, arrogant, snooty, overbearing Blue Devils of Duke and …
Just how popular is the NCAA men’s basketball tournament? These fun statistics were compiled by the United States Gaming Commission. There will be 70 million brackets filled out and more than $10.4 billion placed on wagers, and that’s just in office pools. In Las Vegas, there will be $295 mi…

I wanted to use this opportunity to try and share with you my love for college basketball. I’ve been told that when I write about anything other than football people stop reading, but hear me out. I’ve mentioned some of this before, but when I was growing up in Henderson, North Carolina, I f…
