GREENSBORO — Duke University junior guard Grayson Allen didn't burry too many shots on Wednesday, but he did plunge his head into a Gatorade towel. After a season last year that involved tripping two opponents, the Blue Devil has gone on record saying he wants to brighten his image, which has been marred with a dirty player stereotype. The exact opposite happened against Elon University.
GREENSBORO — If the Elon University men's basketball game against Duke University Wednesday night was in March and only lasted a half, a lot of brackets would have been burned.

HARLEM, NEW YORK — Danielle Jones' early morning jog route around the streets of Harlem today included a pit stop she doesn't take every day — a polling location. Whatever heart rate she was monitoring on her iPhone app relaxed for a few minutes while she waited in line to vote, and afterward, she placed a sticker on her Nike sweatshirt to reaffirm to those who passed by that she committed her greatest American civic duty on Election Day.
Raleigh — It started out tranquilly. The divisiveness that has stained every 6 p.m.

North Carolina’s 15 Electoral College votes may seem trivial compared to the 270 total needed to win the United States presidency, but the votes placed in the state Nov. 8 will have a significant impact in deciding the next Commander-in-Chief. Since July, campaigns for both Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump have reflected the state’s high value, as each has made regular appearances. Clinton has even sent surrogates, including President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and former President Bill Clinton, to energize voters.

The fall semester at Elon University has just started this, but this summer, Kathleen Parker was the catalyst for many Elon students grumbling about certain aspects of the upcoming school year— complaints that were more serious and ethically challenging than homework and exams. A planned Baird Pulitzer Prize lecture in October from Parker, a syndicated Washington Post columnist, was met with hostility among the Elon community as more than 300 students, alumni and others signed a petition asking the school to cancel the event, according to the Greensboro News and Record.
