|Ex-NC State coach pleads guilty to tax charges (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: December 11, 2013, 3:09 pm]
Former North Carolina State basketball coach Sidney Lowe has pleaded guilty to failing to file his North Carolina tax returns for three years. Lowe entered his plea Wednesday in Wake County District Court before Judge Margaret Eagles. In a statement announcing the plea, the state Department of Revenue said the 53-year-old Lowe, currently an assistant with the NBA's Utah Jazz, didn't file returns from 2009-11 - the last three years he coached the Wolfpack. The department says Lowe received roughly $962,000 in income in 2009 and $953,000 in 2010 from N.C. State and roughly $659,000 in 2011 from the school and the Jazz, who hired him after he resigned as the Wolfpack's coach that year.
No. 11 Wildcats remain a work in progress (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: December 11, 2013, 2:56 pm]
The happiness expressed by Kentucky players after their victory over Boise State wasn't just because they played the type of game indicative of their abilities. That's a big issue for Kentucky (8-2), which faces another measuring stick Saturday at No. 18 North Carolina. They showed signs of growth Tuesday night in a 70-55 victory over Boise State. Though the Wildcats' highly touted freshmen remain a project with plenty of lessons to learn in a challenging month before Southeastern Conference play begins, they took a step forward and look forward to what's next against the Tar Heels (6-2).
