Sports Channel 8 | Ben Swain: Despite calls for UNC to self-impose penalties for NCAA violations, nothing is actually owed to anyone with their response. There isn’t a clean ending to be found here, but that shouldn’t impact future NCAA decisions, like the one at Baylor.

UNC.edu | Kristen Chung: An interview with former UNC field hockey player Rachel Dawson, who is appearing in her third Olympics this summer in Rio. She discusses what it’s like to play on the world’s biggest stage and what it means to represent Team USA.

GoHeels.com | Lee Pace: The Tar Heels football team had its second workout of camp on Saturday, and Mack Hollins took over a leadership role to get the team to complete two perfect jumping jacks. It took the squad three times to complete the task to Hollins’ satisfaction, but Larry Fedora said one of the hardest things about leadership is holding your peers accountable.

Ames Tribune | Travis Hines: Even though representing Team USA at the Olympics makes for one of the craziest experiences of his life, Harrison Barnes isn’t letting any of it shake him. His mother says that’s just part of Harrison’s personality, and not letting things bother him will certainly help him work through struggles in the NBA.
