CHAPEL HILL, NC (AP) - North Carolina women's basketball coach Sylvia Hatchell has been diagnosed with leukemia.

In a release from the school Monday, Hatchell said she would temporarily step away from her coaching duties to focus on treatment. She said she would remain involved with the team and expected to "return to my sideline responsibilities as soon as possible."

The 61-yar-old Hatchell was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame last month. She's preparing for her 28th season with the Tar Heels and has 908 career victories, making her one of only three head coaches in the sport to win 900 games.

Hatchell led UNC to the 1994 NCAA championship.

Longtime assistant Andrew Calder will lead the program while Hatchell is away. He has been on Hatchell's staff throughout her tenure.

The boxing camp is being hosted by "Bonecrusher" Smith, and the children who attend will learn boxing techniques, fitness and important life skills.

Bonecrusher founded his charity, Champion For Kids, in 2004 to mentor kids around the world. He is also planning to build a Boxing Legends Hall of Fame Museum in Myrtle Beach that will be the home for his after-school boxing program for kids and an international boxing club to train young boxers.

WILMINGTON, NC (CFCC RELEASE ) -- Cape Fear Community College captured its 17th volleyball victory in 18 games this season Monday with a 3-0 shutout over Louisburg College. "I'm very proud of how we came out and dominated today," noted coach Emily Coleman. "We have to be playing our best volleyball this time of the year and I really think we are close."

The triumph also extended CFCC's conference record to 13-1. Cape Fear got off to a bad beginning, trailing Louisburg, 3-0, in the first set. However, Emily Jefferson then went on a hitting spree, spearheading a 6-0 Cape Fear run to push the winners ahead and they were never behind again.

WILMINGTON, NC (UNCW) -- UNCW freshman goalkeeper Carolyn Huddy was named the Colonial Athletic Association's Rookie-of-the-Week on Monday.

Huddy becomes the third UNCW player to be recognized by the league this season as sophomore Maddie McCormick was named Player-of-the-Week on Sept. 16 while fellow newcomer Liisa Rahkola earned Rookie-of-the-Week honors on Sept. 23. "I'm happy that Carolyn has been recognized by the CAA for her play last week against College of Charleston," said UNCW Head Coach Paul Cairney. "She has competed hard all season and has done an excellent job the last two games of stepping in after Lissa suffered her injury at Northeastern. As with any individual honor, however, Carolyn shares this award with her teammates."

A native of Huntersville, N.C. , Huddy recorded her first collegiate shutout in a 1-0 victory over visiting College of Charleston on Oct. 11. Huddy faced six shots and made one save as she helped the Seahawks remain undefeated in five contests at the UNCW Soccer Stadium this season.

UNCW (7-7; 2-2 CAA) returns to the road this weekend as it travels to James Madison (Oct. 18) and William & Mary (Oct. 20) for a pair of Colonial Athletic Association contests.
