Portal's two big men couldn't be more different. One has an eye for the three-pointer, playing with evident emotion and cockiness to the delight of the crowd. The other quietly works hard for his points, scoring via posting-up, crashing for the tough rebound, then dropping his head and running back down the court to play defense, rarely flashing a shy smile.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Welcome to the new Atlantic Coast Conference.
My best fishing buddy is Coach Steve Cisson. He's a machine when it comes to finding and landing all kinds of creatures from the deep. Most of the things I know about the sport, I learned from him including the fact that you should never go out in a small boat on a big lake when there is a storm brewing.
