RALEIGH—Before a week-long break from basketball games for final exams, Richard Howell had found his rhythm, notching double-doubles in three of the Wolfpack’s past four games. In No. 25 N.C. State’s 84-62 win over Norfolk State Saturday, he took that effectiveness to another level.

Howell pulled down a career-high 19 rebounds and five blocks, and he also scored 12 points to extend his double-double streak to three games in a row and four of the last five. At this point, his teammates expect that level of production.

“That’s what he does,” point guard Lorenzo Brown said. “I’m not surprised. He always does that.”

Pack schedule tougher than it looks

N.C. State will play North Carolina and Duke at home next season in basketball.

Neither game will be a given once the league expands to 14 teams before the 2013-14 season so it's noteworthy that both the Tar Heels and Blue Devils will visit Raleigh.

Who knows when that will happen again?

UNCG, UNCA among recipients of anonymous gifts

Folks at two UNC system campuses are the happy recipients of a chunk of $45 million in money donated anonymously to universities across the nation.

UNC Greensboro and UNC Asheville have each received a share of the money, which has been distributed to at least nine universities across the nation in a cloak-and-daggar, covert fashion just begging for a screenplay.

The donor is unknown, and university leaders have been sworn to secrecy, forbidden even to try to determine the donor's existence.

UNCG got $6 million; UNCA got $1.5 million. 

Here's the story.
