As for the Tar Heels, coach Brown now has to figure out who's going to be the starting quarterback come Week 1.

UNC is a top-five team in the country and they are playing with a confidence through the roof since knocking off Duke a week and a half ago.

There is some truth to that. The Blue Devils won 85-69 in Chapel Hill on February 7.

With Kea (16 points) and Leah Church (12 points) forced to carry the load and log heavy minutes in Hatchell's six-player rotation, the Blue Devils held UNC to a season-low 44 points. "It's hard to win three games back-to-back against anybody".

Marcquise Reed led Clemson with 24 points, while Elijah Thomas added 14 points and 11 rebounds.


"I told the boys about the movie "Hoosiers" and how Gene Hackman tries to intentionally get thrown out". "The thing about the tournament is that all records are gone, everything is gone". "Everyone is confident and we just have to keep it going".

The performances on the mound and at the plate for the Tar Heels this weekend provide them with good momentum early on in the season. Elliott was in grad school at North Carolina and had one more season of eligibility remaining. North Carolina defeated OR 77-76.

"I just want everybody to know I'm alive", Williams said after the game. It's excruciating pain for a little while.

With 55 seconds to go before the break, play was stopped as Williams fell to one knee in front of the Tar Heels' bench. "He's been a captain, he's been a leader, he has really fought his guts out on the field". "That was the emphasis we wanted to force her (Bailey) middle and we ended up not letting her get the ball-period-I felt like as much as she did last game". But I'm so proud of our team, and I'm so proud of this guy sitting beside me for 24 years. UNC switched to freshmen Cade Fortin and Jace Ruder, and sophomore Chazz Surratt at various points, though Elliott took over again after each got hurt.
