CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - In almost every sense, Emilio Vicente is an American success story. He grew up a shy kid in the North Carolina mill town of Siler City. His parents, who moved there when he was 6, had little formal education and worked long, punishing shifts at a chicken processing plant to support their seven children. Vicente's strong grades and college boards earned him a full scholarship to the University of North Carolina, one of the nation's most prestigious public universities.

Laws raising the legal drinking age to 21 went into effect in five states, triggering last-minute booze-buying sprees and a rampage by students at the University of North Carolina. Wisconsin, North Carolina, Minnesota, Iowa and Texas became the latest states to avoid the loss of federal highway funds by passing laws banning the sale of alcohol to people under age 21. The Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota laws allow people who turned 19 years old before Sept. 1 to continue drinking.

What a shock: The school everyone said was No. 1 at the beginning of the season has earned the chance to prove that it's No. 1 at the end. Getting from November to now wasn't as easy as it sounds, but North Carolina Coach Roy Williams' team is one game from almost living up to its incredible hype. North Carolina used its considerable height, power and point guard Ty Lawson advantage to defeat Villanova on Saturday, 83-69, to advance to Monday night's national title game against Michigan State.

A hacker used a University of North Carolina computer system to steal personal financial information from EBay users, and at least one person lost money, the FBI said. Users of the Internet auction site complained to the FBI that they had received fraudulent e-mails that appeared to come from EBay. The e-mails told recipients their accounts were suspended until they verified some personal information -- including their credit card numbers.

An admissions department e-mail sent from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill congratulated 2,700 prospective freshmen this week on their acceptance to the school. The problem is that none of the applicants has been admitted. Applicants won't find out until March whether they've made the cut. Stephen Farmer, the school's director of undergraduate admissions, said the e-mail was intended to request midyear grades.

The estate of the first woman to win a case before the North Carolina Supreme Court nearly 80 years ago has pledged $14 million to two North Carolina law schools. Kathrine R. Everett, one of Chapel Hill's first female law graduates, made state legal history in 1920 by becoming the first woman to win a case before its highest court, said Judith Wegner, dean of UNC's law school. Everett died in 1992 at 98 after a legal career spanning seven decades.

Roy Williams is coaching against Kansas -- anyone think that might be a story line? It took a lot of bracket work for this to play out. North Carolina, top-seeded in the East, had to work its way through Mount St. Mary's, Arkansas, Washington State and Louisville. Kansas, seeded No. 1 in the Midwest, defeated Portland State, Nevada Las Vegas, Villanova and Davidson to reach the Final Four.

He is the winningest coach in NCAA women's soccer, but North Carolina's Anson Dorrance also has helped supply the sport's coaching ranks with his former players. "Part of our philosophy at N.C. is to empower the women we're coaching," Dorrance said. "And part of that empowerment is, we're trying to sell them on considering this as a potential profession. We don't really push them." Dorrance, whose Tar Heels last season brought home their 18th NCAA championship, walks the walk.

From USC finding open shooting lanes in an easy victory over Arkansas to its dominant defensive effort in a rout over Kevin Durant and Texas, Coach Tim Floyd's NBA influence of exploiting matchups has been a major force behind the Trojans' tournament success. But this game-to-game strategy will face an all-new challenge against North Carolina tonight in a NCAA tournament Sweet 16 matchup at East Rutherford, N.J.

Two students horsing around in a college dormitory in Chapel Hill crashed through a third-floor window and fell onto the concrete below, school officials said. One was killed, and the other was hospitalized. Investigators do not believe drugs or alcohol were involved, University of North Carolina spokeswoman Lisa Katz said. The two young men were "just running, horsing around, playing," and went through a window at the end of a hallway, she said.

Thanks to a Bell Tower upgrade, students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill always know what time it is--even when they're trying to sleep. "I manage to get to sleep after a while, but I have to put in earplugs," said Joanna Jordan, one of two dormitory residents who wrote a letter to the editor of the student newspaper complaining about the noise. "It's bearable, but I don't see why there's any reason for it."

After the national championship would come the fall. At least that's what North Carolina Tar Heel haters hoped. The Tar Heels lost all five starters from last season's national championship team. They lost their top seven scorers, 91% of their scoring and three-point shooting, and 88% of their rebounding. Gone are Jackie Manuel, Melvin Scott, Jawad Williams, Raymond Felton, Sean May, Rashad McCants and Marvin Williams.

It's Raymond Felton's heart that North Carolina Coach Roy Williams loves. And the attitude. It's that mouthy, cocky belief that whatever play he runs, whatever shot he takes, it's the right-thing-to-do belief in himself that point guard Felton has and Williams adores. Felton is only 6 feet 1 and he can't hit 200 pounds on the scale even when he eats cheeseburgers and pizza, but in his mind, Felton thinks he can do anything, anytime. "He's a tough little rascal," Williams said.
