    I filled out my first NCAA March Madness bracket this year. And until Sunday night, I was doing pretty good.
    I was betting on University of Kentucky for the championship. Going to middle school in rural Owen County, Wildcat blue was the rage against the despised University of Louisville. I went to one game at Rupp Arena with my friend, Jesse, and his dad, and I grasped the mania — the electric thrill of the home crowd when a Kentucky player made a break down the lane and scored basket &mda
  • Marcus Paige brings more to Greensboro than sports

    Louder than the pregame ovation for Marcus Paige — a six-foot guard formerly of the University of North Carolina — came the cheer for Owen, an 8-year-old in a kids’ dance contest, whose juju on that beat earned him a victory over two other young competitors at halftime.
    As he jitterbugged on center court, Owen sported a Tar Heel jersey, the back of which displayed no name — just a familiar No. 5.
