The O-N-E Morning Read:Pearl Harbor Day, Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2011

December 7, 2011

A man accused of murdering a 19-year-old Travis Baker more than four years ago will spend at least 12 years in jail after pleading guilty to second-degree murder charges.

Baker disappeared in April 2007, and his family spent two years wondering about the fate of the Catawba teen before his body was found in a lumber pile in June 2009. The O-N-E has the complete story of Baker’s death and disappearance, as well as Tuesday afternoon’s reaction from his grieving family.

Tigers sweep Bears to continue hot season starts

December 7, 2011

The Fred T. Foard boys basketball team’s resurgence continued Tuesday.

The Tigers scored 24 fourth quarter points, including eight each from Tre Robinson and Kasey Simms, carrying them past Bunker Hill at home, 54-43.

The victory improves Foard, which won three games last season, to 5-0.
The two teams were deadlocked for a majority of the contest. The Bears (0-4) held a 21-19 lead at the halftime break.

That all changed with 7:13 remaining in the game. A three-point play opportunity by Robinson gave the Tigers a lead they did not let go.

No. 4 North Carolina beats Evansville 97-48

December 7, 2011

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Denver Holmes knocked down outside shots and provided Evansville with some scoring punch against fourth-ranked North Carolina. The problem was that no one else followed his lead.

While Holmes scored 14 points in the 97-48 loss to the Tar Heels on Tuesday night, no other player reached double figures for the Purple Aces. The rest of the team struggled to knock down shots, particularly from 3-point range, that could have helped negate North Carolina's big size advantage.
