Hoops, tattoos, protests, and the Russians

I grew up loving UNC, Dean Smith and basketball. I was a sportswriter for a time. And, I’m about as tired of hearing about March Madness as I can be.
This of course,  has nothing to do with the exit of UNC, NCSU or Duke over the weekend, or the lack of the ECU Pirates in the tournament. Those reasons, of course, would be sufficient.

BUNN -- Even though Nash Central High School is in a semi-rebuilding mode this spring in girls soccer, it was still expected that the Lady Bulldogs would be solid on the defensive side of the ball.
