CHAPEL HILL (UNC Athletics) – Tonight’s men’s basketball game between the University of North Carolina and Duke University has been postponed due to inclement weather.  The University of North Carolina will play host to Duke University on Thursday, February 20th, in a makeup date from tonight’s game that was postponed due to inclement weather, as agreed upon by UNC, Duke and Atlantic Coast Conference officials.

The time of the game and television information has not been determined at this time.

“Duke’s bus is not able to get to their campus to pick up the team in time to be able to make the trip to Chapel Hill so we can’t play this evening,” says UNC Director of Athletics Bubba Cunningham. “The safety of the teams and officials is the number one priority and this was the best decision to make at this time. Coach Williams, Coach Krzyzewski, (Duke AD) Kevin White and I will be on the phone with the ACC and make a decision as to when to play the game as soon as possible.”

Series highlights Duke All-American Bobby Hurley and Georgia Tech
Standout Mark Price, the 1985 ACC Player of the Year

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Episode 2 of the Emmy Award-nominated ACC Network syndicated series, “ACC Basketball: Havoline Kings of the Court,” will begin airing this weekend and throughout the month of February. Hosted by former University of Virginia star and 8-year NBA guard, Cory Alexander, the series is syndicated throughout the ACC Network in 84 television markets.

Nominated for the prestigious Emmy Award for Best Sports Series in each of its first two seasons, “Havoline Kings of the Courtis dedicated to spotlighting the continued tradition of excellence that is Atlantic Coast Conference basketball. The series, three monthly half-hour shows, goes beyond the game to tell the unique story of a player or coach, and how they made a name for themselves in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The second show of 2014 spotlights former Duke All-American Bobby Hurley. The guard from Jersey City, N.J. led St. Anthony High School to four straight state titles with his father as coach. During his time at Duke, Hurley led the Blue Devils to two national championships and set the NCAA record for assists with 1,076. Drafted by the Sacramento Kings, Hurley’s pro career was tragically interrupted as a rookie, when an auto accident nearly ended his life. After recovering, Hurley played four seasons in the NBA, but did not attain the success he had in college. But he didn’t stray far from basketball. He joined his younger brother Danny’s coaching staff at Wagner College in 2010 and later at the University of Rhode Island before accepting the head coaching job at the University of Buffalo last year. We visit with Hurley in Buffalo as he talks about his playing days, recovering from the accident and returning to college basketball.

Then spend time with former Georgia Tech standout Mark Price. The guard from Enid, Oklahoma was recruited by Bobby Cremins to play for the Yellow Jackets in the early ‘80s. Despite many critics doubting his size and skill, Price became one of the best point guards in the country, leading GT to the 1985 ACC title while being named ACC Player of the Year. Drafted in 1986, he was one of the most consistent shooters in the NBA. After a 12-year pro career, Price began sharing his knowledge as an assistant coach and consultant to several pro and college teams. Hear how the kid from Oklahoma felt playing for a New York City coach in college and how he is still impacting the game as an NBA assistant coach for the Charlotte Bobcats.

This Week Spotlights Coaching Legend Bobby Bowden, Virginia Tech Quarterback Logan Thomas and Wake Forest Flanker Michael Campanaro

Charlotte, N.C. – Raycom Sports’ multi-Emmy Award-winning summer television series, “Havoline Football Saturdays,” continues its tenth season with Episode 5 this weekend. The series, with six one-hour episodes, is syndicated in 75 markets throughout the country.

This week’s show features host Tim Brando sitting down with coaching legend Bobby Bowden in a special two-part interview. Bowden, who led Florida State to two national championships, talks about his coaching career and legacy in college football. The all-time wins leader tells us about his early years growing up in Alabama fighting rheumatic fever, which left him confined to his bed for a year, to his playing days at Howard College and coaching at Samford with some unsuspected help from NFL legend Bart Starr.

From the family home in Panama City, Florida, we see  4 generations of Bowdens and a friendly golf game between Bobby and his sons. Also hear what his expectations are as he prepares to return to campus in Tallahassee for the first time since he left the sidelines.

Then spend time with Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas. The dual threat senior runs the Hokie offense and sets the tone with his athleticism. Learn how he changed from the #1 high school tight end recruit to an All-ACC signal caller. While the Hokies are his football family, Thomas spends most days with his close friend and cousin Zach McCray, who is a tight end at VT. Shoot around with Thomas and McCray as they talk about their time in Blacksburg.

We also head home to Clarksville, Maryland with Wake Forest’s Michael Campanaro. The flanker has developed into one of the most exciting playmakers in the ACC. See how his support system begins with his family, from meals at his parents’ café to training with his brothers.

This Week Spotlights Former College Greats Greg Olsen of Miami, Randall Cobb of Kentucky and Concussion Research at VT and UNC

Charlotte, N.C. – Raycom Sports’ multi-Emmy Award-winning summer television series, “Havoline Football Saturdays,” continues its tenth season with Episode 4 this weekend. The series, with six one-hour episodes, is hosted by Tim Brando and syndicated in 75 markets throughout the country.

This week’s show features former Miami Hurricane tight end Greg Olsen. After a stellar college career, the All-ACC selection was drafted in the first round by the Chicago Bears. He was traded to the Carolina Panthers in 2011, and had his most productive season as a pro this past season. But the challenges he faced on the field were overshadowed by traumatic news at home after one of the twins was diagnosed with a life-threatening heart defect. See how he and his wife Kara dealt with the news of their son’s health and how the Panthers family, helped them through a difficult time in their lives.

We also head home to Alcoa, Tennessee with Randall Cobb. The Green Bay Packers wide receiver began his career there, leading his high school to a 55-5 record and four state titles. He then played for the University of Kentucky, where he set the SEC single-season record for all-purpose yardage in 2010.  While he has quickly become an NFL star, he hasn’t forgotten his hometown as he hosts a camp for 250 kids back in Alcoa.

Concussions in football have been in the headlines, and two ACC schools have been leaders in concussion research. Virginia Tech began concussion studies in 2003 with sensor-equipped helmets to measure impact force. In addition to indicating concussion-force impact during a game, the research also led to VT instituting helmet ratings. Much like crash testing in the automotive field, these ratings have helped schools choose the best protection for players.

The University of North Carolina has also become a pioneer in the field of concussion diagnosis and analysis. Using a concussion effects balance assessment developed by UNC medical staff, players can be tested and cleared to safely return to the field. Both schools are leading the way to improve safety for football players.

As a freshman, he burst on the scene for the Tigers, setting records and helping them to the ACC title. An arrest before his sophomore season made him realize the importance of accountability. Find out how Watkins is motivated by the lessons he has learned in the last two years as the Tigers look for their second ACC title in the three  years.

Visit with Syracuse quarterback Terrel Hunt. The Queens native lost his mother to cancer while he was in high school but one of her dying wishes was for her son to attend college. Terrel did just that by earning a scholarship and he is now fighting to start at quarterback for the Orange in their inaugural ACC season.  But the sophomore is more than a football player, with his poetry a tribute to his mom and the struggles he has faced since her passing. Hear his inspiring words and his plans for the 2013 season.

Take a trip to Auburn where Toomer’s Oaks have been rolled with toilet paper in celebrations since Auburn’s win over #2 Alabama in 1972. After a rival fan poisoned the trees, Auburn was unable to save them and was forced to make the decision to remove the dying trees. See what Toomer’s Oaks have meant to the University and the city, and how this past April’s removal became a celebration of remembrance.

And ACC Road Trip travels to Tallahassee, where host Tommy Kane experiences gameday at Florida State. T-K visits with Heisman Trophy winner Chris Weinke, learns the tradition of Chief Osceola and Renegade, and tailgates before the Clemson-Florida State football game.
