My Friday Five: On Sylvia Hatchell, Panthers News & A ‘Survivor’ Ploy(?)

1. Congrats, Coach Hatchell

UNC Women’s Basketball head coach, Sylvia Hatchell, became the fourth coach in Division I college basketball history to hit the 1,000 win mark on Tuesday. The 2013 Naismith Hall of Famer joined Pat Summitt, Tara VanDerveer, Mike Krzyzewski and Geno Auriemma in the 1,000-win club - with Auriemma earning a spot himself on the same day as Hatchell. I couldn't be happier for Coach Hatchell, who has garnered 728 wins in Chapel Hill after 272 victories in 11 seasons at Francis Marion, according to GoHeels.com. Here's to many more W's for her!

Christmas Giving 2k17

It's hard to believe that Christmas is upon us. For the past few years, I've made it a tradition to give back to my community - and the world at large - especially during the holiday season. I also try to choose a different cause to give to each year. A friend on Twitter mentioned about Daymaker, an organization that partners with local charities to provide much needed assistance to those who are less fortunate, primarily focusing on kids and families across the country. The organization has created a simplistic platform for people, just like you and me, to give. 

My Friday Five: On Luke Mate, Rickie Fowler & Netflix News

1. Congrats, Luuuukkkkeeee

Big congrats to UNC’s Luke Maye, who was named ACC Player of the Week. Maye has developed into a key piece for the Heels this season, averaging 24.3 points, 11.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.7 blocks in three recent wins for Carolina. This is Maye’s second ACC Player of the Week honor - and it’s well deserved!
