UNF’s Driscoll gets 4-year extension following NCAA berth


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) North Florida basketball coach Matthew Driscoll has agreed to a four-year extension, keeping him under contract through the 2021-22 season.

Athletic director Lee Moon announced the deal Wednesday, saying “Coach Driscoll is very deserving of this contract extension and I am thrilled to have him continue leading our basketball program for many more seasons.”

The Ospreys are coming off their most successful season. They finished 23-12, including a 12-2 mark in the Atlantic Sun Conference, and earned the program’s first NCAA Tournament berth.

North Florida, which won the Atlantic Sun regular-season title and the tournament championship, returns four starters and seven of its top nine players from last season.

UNF has notched double-digit wins in each of Driscoll’s six seasons, including a 39-28 mark the past two years.

Throwback Thursday: Vince Carter’s top 50 UNC dunks

Vince Carter might be the greatest in-game dunker of all-time, and that ability didn’t just happen to show up when he reached the NBA.

The dude was ridiculous in college as well. I mean, for starters, he had enough dunks in his three seasons in college to put together a top 50 list. That’s impressive, but not quite as impressive as some of the dunks in that top 50.

It starts out a bit slow, but things really get going around the two-minute mark. Imagine if VC played in the twitter-era. My timeline would be nothing but vines of his ridiculously athletic plays.

To get a true sense of just how scary athletic Vince was back then, watch the defenders in this vine:

Yeah, they want no part of that.

That’s what you call respect.

Baylor head coach Scott Drew revealed this week pictures of the new Nike home uniforms that the Bears will be playing in this season, which you can see above.

They’re pretty sleek, with the most notable difference being the electric yellow outline for the green lettering and numbering on the jersey. Here are a couple of other angles, my favorite being that Rico Gathers Sr. actually has “Gathers Sr.” written on the back of his uniform:

The Bears made the switch to Nike from Adidas last season.
