RailHawks sign Zimbabwean midfielder Joseph Kabwe

Posted By on Tue, Mar 3, 2009 at 8:30 PM

In contrast to the recent run of high-profile signings from Europe and the MLS, the RailHawks reached down and made a low-key move today of the sort that could end up looking like an extremely shrewd acquisition. Joseph Kabwe, who is the third African signed to this squad, comes to the RailHawks after several years with the USL-2 power Charlotte Eagles. His career thus far has been solid if unspectacular: He played his college ball on the lower rungs of the NCAA Division I, at Coastal Carolina in Conway, S.C., making the Big South's second team his senior year....

Blue Devils Ready to March

Posted By on Mon, Mar 2, 2009 at 5:45 PM

On Saturday the No. 7 Duke Blue Devils (24-5, 10-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) went into Cassell Coliseum in Blacksburg, Va. to play the Virginia Tech Hokies (17-11, 7-7 ACC).  The Blue Devils left Blacksburg with a typical, gritty and down to the wire ACC road win.  They also left the impression that they're back to being the Devils of old, a team that can weather a poor offensive night and win a game with a strong defensive performance....

RBC CENTER/ RALEIGH—When Greivis Vasquez tossed in a meaningless three-point basket as time expired on Maryland’s 71-60 victory over N.C. State in Raleigh Sunday evening, a cascade of boos rained down from the already less-than-capacity crowd still remaining in the RBC Center. The shot left Wolfpack guard Javier Gonzalez fuming that such a stunt could get Vasquez “punched in the face.” And, while Coach Sidney Lowe said his team should have played defense through the final buzzer, he added, “You don’t forget it.” In truth, the tempest over Vasquez’s trifecta is a textbook case of displacement. A crushing disappointment was...

Tar Heels maul Georgia Tech, prepare for huge close to regular season

Posted By on Sun, Mar 1, 2009 at 8:55 PM

SMITH CENTER/CHAPEL HILL -- North Carolina probably didn't need a week off to prepare for lowly Georgia Tech, but the Tar Heels used their time away to address several team deficiencies and played with renewed vigor on Saturday afternoon to destroy the Yellow Jackets 104-74. After the club's disastrous second half collapse against Maryland a week earlier, the Tar Heels focused on playing better defense and working more effectively on offense, passing up perimeter shots in favor of feeding the post and attacking the offensive glass. Tyler Hansbrough rebounded from a subpar performance in College Park, lighting up the Yellow...
