WHITEVILLE, NC (WWAY) -- There will be a Whiteville High alumni soccer game on Saturday, April 13 in Whiteville. Admission is $5 for adults. No charge for children. The fundraiser at the Whiteville soccer field is the senior project of Whiteville High student Brett Council, a four year member of the Whiteville soccer team. Proceeds benefit the Jason Council Cystic Fibrosis Scholarship to honor Brett's younger brother, Jason Council.

All former Whiteville soccer players are encouraged to participate in the game. The cost to play is $20. The fee covers drinks and a t-shirt. Contact Brett Council at 640-8393 for more information.

Fight Cystic Fibrosis wristbands will be given to the first 50 fans who show up for Saturday's fundraiser.

MEMPHIS, TN (AP) -- Mike Conley scored 20 points, Zach Randolph had 11 points and 13 rebounds, and the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Charlotte Bobcats 94-75 on Tuesday night.

Memphis won its 13th straight at home and tied a single-season franchise record with its 31st home win.

Kemba Walker scored 19 points to lead the Bobcats, and Gerald Henderson had 13.

The Grizzlies (53-25) led 63-60 early in the fourth quarter, before pulling away behind a 15-0 run generated mostly by their reserves. Seldom-used Jon Leuer had seven points during the run and finished with 11.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Beau Bennett and Evgeni Malkin scored 13 seconds apart in the third period and the Pittsburgh Penguins clinched the Atlantic Division title by beating the free-falling Carolina Hurricanes 5-3 on Tuesday night.

Brenden Morrow scored his first goal with the Penguins, Robert Bortuzzo added a goal, and Pascal Dupuis had an empty-netter and two assists.

Marc-Andre Fleury made 25 saves for Penguins, who were without a handful of regulars - including captain Sidney Crosby, James Neal and Kris Letang - but still had plenty of timely firepower to hand the Hurricanes their club-record eighth straight home loss.

Joe Corvo and Bobby Sanguinetti scored early goals for the Hurricanes, and Riley Nash put them up 3-2 exactly 2 minutes into the third.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Freshman Breanna Stewart scored 23 points and Connecticut won its eighth national championship with a record 93-60 rout of Louisville on Tuesday night.

The victory tied Geno Auriemma and the Huskies (35-4) with Pat Summitt and Tennessee for the most titles in women's basketball history. It was the most lopsided victory in a championship game.

It might not take long for Auriemma to pass Summitt the way Stewart and the rest of his Huskies played. His prized freshman was unstoppable, hitting shots from everywhere on the court.

The loss ended an unprecedented tournament run by Louisville (29-9) and left UConn as the only team to win both the men's and women's titles in the same season. The Cardinals' men's team beat Michigan on Monday night and coach Rick Pitino was in the crowd trying to spur on the women's program.

It wasn't enough.
