Pitt Holds Off North Carolina

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — On Wednesday night, Pitt took down North Carolina for the second time this season after Jamarius Burton sank the game-tying and game-winning free throws with seconds remaining on the clock.  With 24 seconds to go trailing by one, Pitt head coach Jeff Capel called for the ball right to go right to Burton out of a timeout. After Burton got the matchup that he liked, he took the ball inside on a drive and was fouled on his floater attempt. After hitting both clutch free throws, Burton and the Panthers had retaken the lead. North Carolina’s Caleb Love missed his game-winning attempt with .6 remaining, with Nike Sibande in his face and getting a piece of the shot.  Burton finished with 19 points and five rebounds in the win, and Pitt guard Nelly Cummings led the team with 21 points on 8-for-11 shooting.

Eagles Reserve Lineman Accused Of Rape

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio (AP) – Philadelphia Eagles reserve offensive lineman Josh Sills has been indicted on rape and kidnapping charges that stem from an incident in Ohio just over three years ago. The NFL on Wednesday put the rookie who has played just four snaps this season on the commissioner’s exempt list. That means he can’t practice, play or travel with the Eagles as they prepares for the Super Bowl. A grand jury indicted Sills earlier this week. His attorney said Wednesday that the allegations are false. Sills is due in court on Feb. 16, four days after the Eagles are to play Kansas City in the Super Bowl.
