AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Rodney Terry held Texas together in crisis. Then he took the Longhorns on their deepest NCAA Tournament run in 15 years.

His reward: Texas removed the “interim” tag from his title and made him the full-time head coach.

Tar Heels G Love plans to transfer

North Carolina guard Caleb Love says he will enter his name into the transfer portal after three seasons with the Tar Heels.

Creighton's season ends in stunning way
