CHAPEL HILL, NC (AP) - North Carolina says senior quarterback Bryn Renner will have season-ending shoulder surgery.

The team said on its official Twitter account Tuesday that the procedure on Renner's left, non-throwing shoulder is scheduled for Wednesday at UNC Hospitals.

The injury likely makes redshirt sophomore Marquise Williams the full-time starter. Williams and Renner have rotated during the past few weeks.

Renner separated his left shoulder during the Tar Heels' victory over North Carolina State on Saturday. He returned midway through the fourth quarter after team medical staff popped it back into place.

Renner is the Atlantic Coast Conference's third-leading passer, throwing for 252 yards per game, with 10 touchdowns and 1,765 yards passing.

He led North Carolina (3-5, 2-3) to two straight wins following a 1-5 start.

RALEIGH, NC (AP) - Manny Malhotra scored 2:40 into overtime, and the Carolina Hurricanes broke a five-game losing streak with a 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.

Justin Peters stopped 28 shots and earned his first win of the season while starting his fifth straight game since replacing the injured Cam Ward on Oct. 24.

Scott Hartnell had given Philadelphia a 1-0 lead with 3:58 left in regulation, but Jared Staal tied it with 52.3 seconds remaining to force overtime.

The Flyers, who have lost three of four, have scored more than two goals only once this season in 14 games.

Carmelo Anthony scored 32 points to lead the Knicks, but was 10 for 28 from the field.. His back-to-back baskets late in the fourth quarter twice brought the Knicks within two, but every attempt that the Knicks had to take the lead faile

New York lost starting center Tyson Chandler midway through the first quarter with a right knee injury.

WILMINGTON, NC (UNCW) -- The Seahawks and Northeastern close out the regular season on Wednesday with a 7 p.m. kickoff at the UNCW Soccer Stadium as both teams battle for seeding in the upcoming Colonial Athletic Association tournament. There are more than 25 scenarios for tournament byes and pairings that will be decided Wednesday evening.

Both sides have secured berths in the upcoming championship tournament, but will be jockeying for seeding and potential byes in the six-team championship tournament. The Huskies and Seahawks are tied with nationally-ranked William & Mary with 10 points apiece and identical 3-2-1 marks in the conference. Delaware, which has completed its regular season, leads the league with 12 points followed by Drexel with 11.

The Seahawks fashioned a 2-all draw with William & Mary on the strength of a two-goal outing from CAA Co-Player-of-the-Week David Sizemore. The red-shirt sophomore gave the Seahawks one-goal leads twice during the game. The Tribe was able to draw even in the 87th minute to force overtime. Sophomore Colin Bonner leads UNCW with nine points on three goals and three assists while Sizemore holds the lead with four goals.

The Huskies have dropped their last three games, including a pair of conference tilts to William & Mary and Col. of Charleston. NU’s offense has struggled during that three-game stretch, having failed to score in any of those games. Defense has been the Huskies strong point this season, allowing just 14 goals and posting a 0.84 goals against average. Goalkeeper Dylan Faber has made 15 starts in goal and responded with a 0.77 goals against average and .815 save average. Dante Marini leads the NU squad with 15 points on team-leading totals of five goals and five assists.

There are two other games on the CAA docket Wednesday that will have an impact on the tournament berths and seedings. Charleston hosts Drexel and James Madison visits W&M.

UNCW seniors Michael Parrish and Hector Martin will be recognized prior to the game.
