Kindergarten Screening at Hiddenite Elementary today and Wednesday.
Less than 12 hours after making the winning basket for UNC in Memphis, Luke Maye attended his 8am class in Chapel Hill. His classmates gave him a standing ovation. Pretty good story for a school that lost a lot of it’s prestige in the recent scandal about scam classes for athletes at UNC (They got off light). I might be wrong but I doubt any other player made it to a morning class or if at all on Monday.
Sad to hear of the passing to Van Tarlton. I told this story last November when he was inducted into the Alexander County Sports Hall of Fame. Van was a very courageous man, he insured me when I stated driving at 16. That’s courage but he got away with it, I never hit a thing
