MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Basketball Hall of Famer Larry Brown is stepping down from his role as a special advisor to Memphis coach Penny Hardaway due to ongoing health concerns, the school announced Friday. ''We wish Coach Brown a speedy recovery,'' Hardaway said in a statement released by the school, which said the health issues are not considered serious. Brown had taken a brief leave of absence in late October from the team.
The latest loss for the Tar Heels (5-4, 0-1 ACC) came Sunday in their ACC opener, falling at Virginia Tech 80-72. UNC was plagued by poor play early on. In the final 18 minutes of the first half, the Tar Heels failed to tally an assist and did not grab a single offensive rebound in the stretch.
Almost a week ago the Wildcats were celebrating their third Big 12 Championship and plenty of plays stood out as big ones from that performance. What happened on the play: For the first time since 2009 Kansas had an above .500 record when facing K-State. K-State started the game with the ball, but their drive stalled after one first down and they were forced to punt on an early fourth down.
