Kevin Keatts Carries UNCW Seahawks To Face No. 4 Louisville

WILMINGTON, NC Dec. 13, 2014  – The sparkling red, black and white decor of the palatial KFC Yum! Center will be very familiar to Kevin Keatts, but UNCW’s new men’s basketball skipper will be watching and coaching Sunday’s game from not-so-accustomed vantage point as he carries his Seahawks to the Bluegrass State to face No. 4 Louisville. The Seahawks, 3-2, just concluded first semester exams and haven’t played since walloping St. Andrews, 105-47, in a record-setting performance 11 days ago at Trask Coliseum.

Carolina Panthers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

As has been well documented, Cam Newton was in an unfortunate car accident earlier this week and will be sidelined with two process fractures in his back. That opens up an opportunity for Derek Anderson to have the starting position. Anderson played well back in week one leading the Panthers to a victory over the Bucs 24-17. That was Week 1. This is Week 15. Both teams […]

RALEIGH, NC Dec. 11, 2014 — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will conduct nine public hearings in January on proposed changes to the state’s wildlife management, game lands and fishing regulations for the 2015-16 seasons.
