UNC's Sylvia Hatchell wins 1,000th game (WTVD)

"Ultracompetitive" is the term that's used frequently to describe North Carolina women's basketball coach Sylvia Hatchell, who won her 1,000th game Tuesday.

But two other words always come to mind: resilient and relentless. You could say that all three generally go together in high achievers, but the latter two are so much a part of Hatchell's story.

And those qualities are why it appears that the Tar Heels are "back" after two years of missing the NCAA tournament.

North Carolina is 10-2 this season following Tuesday's 79-63 victory over Grambling State in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It was a historic day for Hatchell and the program, but it was a fairly routine performance for this year's team, which has won eight games in a row.
