I was watching North Carolina play basketball on ESPN recently. (Is it required that either the Tar Heels or Duke must be on TV every night, or does it just seem that way? Those two get as much air time as Seinfeld reruns.) Carolina has so many weapons. I saw Tyler Hansbrough repeatedly doubled down low. Sometimes, Hansbrough would try to muscle both defenders to the hoop. (Tyler, there's a man open somewhere.) But often the double would allow the Heels to pass to an uncovered player in the paint, leading to a score.

The timing couldn't have been much worse for offensive tackle James Hurst when he broke his left leg during North Carolina's bowl game in late December. As a senior last season, Hurst was projected by draft analysts to land in either the second or third round, until he got hurt. Because of the injury, Hurst could not play in the Senior Bowl or participate in the NFL scouting combine. And he still wasn't 100 percent by his pro day workout this spring. If not for that unfortunate set of circumstances, Hurst probably would have been drafted instead of being signed to a free-agent deal by the Ravens this week.

Tar Cove in Pasadena's Sillery Bay is safe for swimming and other recreational activities, Anne Arundel County health officials say. Thursday, the county Health Department lifted an advisory issued early last week when water-quality tests showed bacteria levels in the cove near Gibson Island were more than three times the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's acceptable levels of 104 organisms per 100 milliliters. Further testing has shown that the bacteria level has decreased to 10 organisms per 100 milliliters.

No. 5 Denver started a four-goal run late in the first quarter and led visiting North Carolina 5-1 at the break in a 9-5 Division I first-round win Saturday.

The Pioneers advance to a quarterfinal game against the winner of Drexel-Penn.

DETROIT -Ty Lawson had quite a month. His toe injury panicked thousands. His casino winnings appalled the pious. But nothing could match his Monday. "Never in a million years," he said, "would I think I'd get the Point Guard of the Year and win the national championship." Lawson collected the personal hardware, the Cousy Award, in late morning. Come prime time, he tormented Michigan State and led North Carolina to its fifth NCAA men's basketball title. Neither distinction is debatable.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- North Carolina fell apart, and so has its confidence about receiving an NCAA tournament bid. The fourth-seeded Tar Heels were shut out for the final 2: 47, collapsing to fifth-seeded Wake Forest, 58-52, yesterday in an Atlantic Coast Conference tournament quarterfinal. After tying the game at 52, North Carolina misfired on its last five shots as chants of "NIT!" grew louder throughout the crowd of 23,895. The Tar Heels (18-13) have placed their NCAA record of 29 seasons with at least 20 victories in serious jeopardy, but that's the least of their worries.

North Carolina men's lacrosse coach John Haus has been relieved of his duties and will not return next season, the school announced yesterday. "John and I have had several discussions in the days since the season ended, and the result of those talks is that we agree a change is in the best interest of reaching the goals we all have for Carolina lacrosse," athletic director Dick Baddour said in a release posted on the school's Web site. "John has spent the past eight years giving everything he had to our program," Baddour said.

Brooke Griffin (South River) tied an Atlantic Coast Conference tournament record with seven goals as top-seeded Maryland defeated fifth-seeded Virginia, 15-9, in a semifinal at Boston College on Friday. Griffin's seven goals tied the tournament record set by Maryland's Jen Adams against North Carolina in the 1999 semifinals and matched by Virginia's Tyler Leachman against North Carolina in 2006 semifinals. The Terps took an 8-2 halftime lead before trading goals with Virginia in the second half.

In the next step of his recovery from October knee surgery, Orioles third baseman Manny Machado will take two at-bats against Johan Santana in a “simulated” game on Saturday in Sarasota, Fla. Machado, 21, can do everything but sprint. And he will not be running the bases Saturday. “Haven't heard the word sprint yet,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.  He likely will take some time in between at-bats against Santana, who is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.

After No. 10 Johns Hopkins pulled within two goals of No. 6 North Carolina at 10-8 just 1 minute, 53 seconds into the fourth quarter Saturday, the Tar Heels' Joey Sankey hung up long-stick midfielder Michael Pellegrino in front of the net and stood behind the cage for about two minutes. Blue Jays fans screamed for a stalling call on Sankey, but officials - sticking to a recent rule change - did not assess the stall until Pellegrino stepped out of the crease. As the 30-second shot clock wound down to zero, Sankey scored off a pass from senior attackman Pat Foster (Boys' Latin)

Johns Hopkins has a 24-18 advantage in its series with North Carolina,  but the Tar Heels have won six of the last seven meetings. The Blue Jays, who are 3-1 at home, will play their next three games at Homewood Field. No. 6 North Carolina (7-2) knocked Maryland from the ranks of the unbeaten with an 11-8 decision on Saturday and has upset No. 1 teams in each of the past three years. The Tar Heels are just one of two teams in Division I ranked in the top five in both scoring and defense -- No. 1 Loyola is the other.

No. 10 Johns Hopkins allowed a three-goal advantage in the second quarter to slip through its fingers as No. 6 North Carolina scored eight of the second half's 10 goals to finish off a 13-9 victory at Homewood Field. The loss was the third in a row for the Blue Jays, who missed the NCAA tournament last season for the first time since 1971. They host a pair of ranked teams in No. 12 Albany and No. 7 Maryland the next two weeks. A consistent rain Saturday - heavy at times - pelted both teams and an announced 1,857, who watched junior attackman Joey Sankey provide the fireworks for the Tar Heels (8-2)

Freshman midfielder Stephen Kelly (Calvert Hall) underwent surgery on his broken right wrist this week and will be out indefinitely for No. 6 North Carolina, including Saturday's game against No. 10 Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. Kelly suffered the injury in the first quarter of last Tuesday's 13-10 win over Harvard but completed the game, winning 13 faceoffs against and getting eight ground balls. He missed Saturday's 11-8 victory over then-No. 1 Maryland. North Carolina used Brent Armstrong (6-for-16)

A two-mile stretch of the Capital Beltway was closed for about five hours yesterday after a truck overturned in Virginia, just south of Woodrow Wilson Memorial Bridge, spilling 500 gallons of hot tar onto the road and snaring thousands of morning commuters on one of the stickiest days of the year. Hundreds of southbound cars caught between the accident site and the Interstate 295 interchange in Maryland were diverted while work crews cleaned up the mess. The Wilson bridge carries the Beltway (Interstate 495)

On a day more suited to the Polar Bear Plunge than a lacrosse game, the No. 4 Loyola women put the big chill on No. 10 North Carolina's attack yesterday. The Greyhounds limited the Tar Heels to six first-half shots and continued to clamp down for a 10-4 victory with the temperature hovering in the mid-30s at Curley Field. Suzanne Eyler and Rachel Shuck led the Loyola attack with four points each as the Greyhounds built a 10-2 lead with 6:05 left. Eyler, a senior All-American, scored two of her four goals and Shuck scored one in a 4-0 Loyola run that broke the game open in the middle of the second half.

In the time that Joe Breschi left Ohio State to assume the head coaching reins at North Carolina after the 2008 season, the program is 5-for-5 in NCAA tournament appearances and has advanced to the quarterfinal round three times. But for a school that captured national championships in 1981, 1982, 1986 and 1991, those results have left alumni and fans wanting more. With the Tar Heels generally considered among the top three teams in Division I leading up to the 2014 season, the expectation is that this year's squad could finally reach the promised land of championship weekend at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on Memorial Day weekend.

Striding in her special black walking shoes decorated with turquoise, pink and lime-green squares, 8-year-old Elizabeth Gardner was, literally, on her way to reaching a milestone. As she began the Save-A-Limb Ride's 1-mile family walk Saturday morning, Lizzie, as she is called by her family and friends, had to urge her grandfather to keep up. "C'mon, Pop-Pop!" she called. Lizzie was born with a rare genetic disorder known as TAR syndrome (TAR stands for "thrombocytopenia with absent radius")
