March 21, 2012

CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall is out of his cast following surgery on his broken right wrist.

In a text message to The Associated Press on Wednesday, Marshall's father Dennis said his son is wearing a removable splint now. Marshall said on Twitter he had shed the cast earlier in the afternoon.

Shuberts together on Foard softball team

March 20, 2012

When David Shubert stopped coaching the Fred T. Foard softball program in 1996, he didn’t know that he would return 16 years later to coach his daughter, Lexi.

The Shuberts are both members of the Lady Tigers softball program, which is off to an 8-0 start this season, including 3-0 in the Northwestern 3A/4A.

David — who not only coached the Foard softball program (1991-96), but also coached the school’s basketball program from 1992-98 — said he remembered his time as hoops coach, when his young daughter attended the games.

March 20, 2012

CONCORD — NASCAR's chief appellate officer overturned on Tuesday the bulk of the penalties levied against five-time championship winning crew chief Chad Knaus, who still must pay a $100,000 fine because Jimmie Johnson's car failed the opening day inspection of the Daytona 500.

Chief appellate officer John Middlebrook overturned the six-race suspensions NASCAR handed down to Knaus and car chief Ron Malec, and ruled both instead will be on probation through May 9.

Holiday, Young lead 76ers past Bobcats 105-80

March 19, 2012

CHARLOTTE — Jrue Holiday had 20 points and six assists as the first-place Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Charlotte Bobcats 105-80 on Monday night to snap a three-game losing streak and sweep the three-game season series between the teams.

Holiday, coming off a career-high 30 points in Saturday's night loss at Chicago, was 8-of-13 shooting from the field and made all four shots from the free-throw line.

Doug Collins said before the game the key to snapping the losing skid was to get a more balanced scoring attack from his players and he got just that.
