From ACC Network basketball analyst Cory Alexander: “I had a coach tell me, ‘I don’t mind you shooting three-pointers. Just don’t take them in the game.’” ...

From Sports Illustrated’s “50 Facts You Never Knew You Wanted To Know About Your Favorite Sports Movies:” 27. Jodie Foster was cast as Amanda in The Bad News Bears but dropped out in order to play Iris in Taxi Driver. ...

From Brad Dickson, Omaha World Herald: “Last week, the Duke mascot head was stolen, presumably by someone who dislikes Duke basketball. That narrows down the suspect list to 147 million Americans.” ...
