Sidney Lowe always knew how to beat North Carolina as a player. The first-year coach proved he can also get the best of the Tar Heels from the sideline. The former North Carolina State point guard earned his first big victory as its coach when the Wolfpack upset No. 3 North Carolina, 83-79, on Saturday in just the kind of rivalry game he was hired to win. "It's one win, but it's a big win. I've never shied away from the rivalry of the three schools down here, and it's a big win," Lowe said.

Sidney Lowe's 135-game run as coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves was marked by pouting players, undisciplined underachievers and lopsided losses. So he was fired Wednesday, along with assistants Jim Brewer and Chuck Davisson, as part of the sweeping changes planned by new owner Glen Taylor. No replacements were named. "It's not frustrating as an owner, it's frustrating as a fan," said Taylor, who on Aug. 5 agreed to buy the Timberwolves from original owners Marv Wolfenson and Harvey Ratner.
