The panel was reviewing the balance between academics and athletics at UNC, which has faced a series of athletics-related scandals over the past three years. Its report, released Tuesday, issued 28 recommendations to the school covering everything from improved oversight and academic support for athletes to maintaining "responsible" spending for athletics operations. Former UNC chancellor Holden Thorp appointed Hunter R. Rawlings III, president of the Association of American Universities, in August 2012 to lead the review. The panel said in its report that it hoped the proposals would be adopted by schools across the country. (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

The Seahawks opened the new season with successive victories over the Buckeyes (2-1, OT) and Cincinnati (1-0). As a result, Coach Aidan Heaney's team is ranked 24th in this week's National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) poll. The Seahawks return to the national rankings for the first time since Oct. 9, 2010, when Heaney's club checked in at No. 24. UNCW opened at No. 23 that season before falling to 25th-ranked Old Dominion, 1-0, in October to drop out of the rankings. UNCW has been ranked as high as No. 18 when it reached the second round of the 2009 NCAA tournament. Tenth-ranked California and 18th-ranked UAB joined UNCW as the only newcomers to move into the top-25. The Seahawks made the national list following an impressive 2-1 overtime win at Ohio State and a 1-0 shutout over Cincinnati in Columbus, Ohio. Sophomore Colin Bonner was named Colonial Athletic Association Player-of-the-Week after scoring twice against Ohio State and earning Wolstein Classic Most Valuable Player honors. UNCW makes its home debut this weekend by staging the ninth edition of the Hilton Garden Inn Classic. The Seahawks play Presbyterian on Friday at 7:30 p.m. and then battle Mercer on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ------------------------ NEW YORK (AP) - From an ace on the first point to a stinging return on the last, Serena Williams was close to perfect in the U.S. Open quarterfinals. The score said it all: 6-0, 6-0. Yes, Williams is looking better and better with each match at the year's last Grand Slam tournament. With two more wins - no matter the exact scores - she'll earn a fifth title at Flushing Meadows and 17th major championship overall. The No. 1-ranked and No. 1-seeded Williams shut out 18th-seeded Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain, winning 53 of 71 points and dominating pretty much every statistical category Tuesday night. The first set took all of 19 minutes. The second was slower, lasting 33 minutes, but no less lopsided. In Friday's semifinals, Williams will play Li Na. (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
