And Chapel Hill is a third place altogether.The confusion about the name comes from the 10 million people who pass through RDU airport annually since American Airlines opened a hub here in 1987 and the airport went international.

At every stop in his young football career, undrafted rookie James Hurst hasn't had much time to settle in before being thrust into a starting role. In both high school and college, it turned out he was ready the moment he walked onto the field, and the Ravens are hoping the same proves true on Sunday when he starts in place of left tackle Eugene Monroe, who underwent knee surgery on Wednesday. "I'm going to use that [knowledge] for confidence and understanding that sure, this is a bigger stage and it's a completely different opportunity, but at the same time, the experience is similar, being a young guy and being thrust in there in a position where you're playing a really good team.

You know that Sen. John Edwards would dearly love to live in the stately Victorian home at 34th Street and Massachusetts Avenue in Washington that is the official residence of vice presidents of the United States. But if that plan doesn't pan out - well, there's always Chapel Hill. At the end of June, vice presidential candidate Edwards and his wife, Elizabeth, paid $1.3 million for 102 acres of forest and farmland about four miles outside the town where both attended law school at the University of North Carolina.

North Carolina men (10-4) @ No. 5 seed Denver (14-2) Saturday, 7:30 p.m. Outlook: For the third consecutive postseason, the Tar Heels and Pioneers will meet in the NCAA tournament. Two years ago, Denver prevailed, 16-14, in Chapel Hill, N.C., in the first round, and last May, the Pioneers overcame a six-goal deficit for a 12-11 win in a quarterfinal. This matchup is the only first-round game involving teams with offenses and defenses both ranked in the top 10. Both offenses are led by junior attackmen, with Joey Sankey pacing North Carolina with 55 points and Wesley Berg powering Denver with 58 points.

Some believe it's the return of the two football players, point guard Ronald Curry and power forward Julius Peppers. Others insist it's the maturation of senior center Brendan Haywood and the all-around play of junior forward Jason Capel. At least a few credit the enthusiasm of first-year coach and former player Matt Doherty. And, of course, the statistics bear out the huge role sophomore shooting guard Joseph Forte continues to play. The answer to why North Carolina is now the No. 1 team in college basketball and riding a 17-game winning streak going into today's home game against 13th-ranked Maryland can be found in all of the above.

A red-hot Corey Keller combined with a multitude of mistakes and missed opportunities meant the end of Towson's emotional 2013 season on Sunday. With two outs in the top of the ninth and the winning run on third, Tigers coach Mike Gottlieb elected to intentionally walk Brendon Sanger so Nik Nowottnick could face Keller, but Keller lined Nowottnick's first-pitch slider off the base of the wall in left to score Geoff Jimenez and propel Florida Atlantic...

I love the effort ESPN is making this weekend to give college baseball fanatics like me a chance to see every regional game in some shape or form.

In 31 days, two teams will meet in Philadelphia for the men's lacrosse national championship. Who that will be is anyone's guess. With unparalleled parity in the sport, the race is wide-open. This weekend, the best slate of the season, will go a long way toward winnowing the field. Some teams, such as Johns Hopkins and Colgate, need a win to keep their NCAA tournament hopes alive. Others, like defending national champion Loyola and Syracuse, want to burnish their resume. These seven games will go a long way toward deciding who will have a shot at Championship Weekend.
