Cedar Falls, Iowa -- North Carolina only scheduled a trip to Northern Iowa as a homecoming for Marcus Paige. The Tar Heels could've used their injured senior star against the Panthers. Wes Washpun scored 21 points and Northern Iowa stunned top-ranked North Carolina 71-67 on Saturday — just a week after losing to Colorado State at home.

BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Marquise Williams hit Quinshad Davis with a 5-yard pass in overtime and No. 12 North Carolina spoiled coach Frank Beamer's final home game at Virginia Tech with a 30-27 victory on Saturday.

NEWBERRY, S.C. --- Sophomore Lepreece Lynch and senior Cameron Redd combined for 38 points and the Lees-McRae men's basketball team scored 27 points off of turnovers while earning their first win of the year with a 93-77 victory against Allen University Friday evening.

There are only two regional teams still alive in the state football playoffs, and both of those teams are from Caldwell County. South Caldwell advanced to the third round of the state playoffs (it's their first trip to the third round since 2005) Friday night by knocking off Kannapolis-Brown 23-14 in the second round of the NCHSAA 4A State Playoffs. The Spartans (11-2), the No. 4 seed in the 4A West, will play the No. 1 seed, Greensboro-Dudley next Friday night.

HAMPTON, Va. -- Frank Eaves did all he could Friday night. Unfortunately, as the old saying goes, "you can't do it all by yourself." And that was evident Friday night as the Appalachian State University men's basketball team dropped an 82-61 decision to Hampton in a non-conference game.
