Chapel Hill, NC (SportsNetwork. Aaron Brooks Pacers Jersey .com) - Returning to work after a seven-day holiday break, the 20th-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels will play host to the UAB Blazers in a non-conference matchup at the Dean E. Smith Center on Saturday afternoon. Roy Williams Tar Heels were last in action on Dec. 20, when they took down the Ohio State Buckeyes (82-74) in a Top-25 showdown at the United Center in Chicago. The win was the second straight and third in the last four outings for UNC, which moved to 8-3 on the season. Jerod Haases third season at UAB has gotten off to a rocky start. The Blazers are just 4-8 on the year and have lost three of their last four outings. The team was last in action on Dec. 22, falling at Chattanooga, 83-67. UAB has lost all four games outside of Bartow Arena this season. North Carolina holds a 3-1 series advantage with UAB, but it was the Blazers who earned the win last year at home, shocking the Tar Heels in a 63-59 decision in Birmingham. The Blazers just havent been able to find much consistency this season, especially on the offensive end, where the team is generating just 66.8 ppg on a modest .409 shooting percentage. UAB has also struggled in the rebounding department with a -3.5 margin. Robert Brown has started all 12 games for UAB and has been the only reliable scoring threat at 13.6 ppg. Limiting support comes in the form of C.J. Washington (9.8 ppg) and Tyler Madison (8.0 ppg). UAB came out cold against the Mocs last time out, shooting an ugly .290 from the floor in the first half and heading into halftime with a 21-point deficit. The chasm was too great to overcome in the second half, as the Blazers dropped their eighth game of the season. Three Blazers finished in double figures in the loss, led by Brown and his 19 points. Hakeem Baxter came off the bench to tally 15 points, while Nick Norton finished with 12. North Carolina has had very few problems generating offense this season. The Tar Heels are putting up 80.2 ppg and doing so on a healthy .452 shooting. In addition, the team has dominated on the glass, outrebounding foes by nine caroms per contest. Three of the teams five starters are boasting of double- digit scoring averages, led by Marcus Paiges 13.4 ppg. Kennedy Meeks is the resident muscle down low, netting 13.3 ppg on .615 shooting, while grabbing a team-best 9.5 rpg. Brice Johnson adds 11.5 points and 7.0 rebounds per game. Justin Jackson and J.P. Tokoto are just under the double-digit mark with 9.5 and 9.1 ppg, respectively. The Tar Heels got off to a fast start against the Buckeyes last week, shooting 51.5 percent from the floor in the first half to earn a 12-point lead at the break (43-31). The team cooled off considerably in the second half, but was able to earn the win nonetheless. UNC held a huge edge in rebounding (53-40) and really moved the ball well, with 23 assists in the game. Johnson led the way with a near double-double, finishing with 18 points and nine rebounds. Paige poured in 16 points, while Jackson finished with 11. Meeks struggled offensively (3-of-10) and finished with eight points, although he did grab a game-high 13 boards. David West Pacers Jersey . -- Darrelle Revis says at least 26 teams called after he was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

LAPEENRANTA, Finland -- Canada will have to play for bronze at the world under-18 hockey championship. David Kase scored at 6:17 of overtime to give the Czech Republic a 4-3 semifinal win over Canada on Saturday. Kase converted a turnover in the Canadian zone to move the Czechs into the tournament final against the United States on Sunday. The Americans advanced with a 4-1 semifinal victory over Sweden. Canada, the defending champion who erased an early 3-0 deficit, will play the Swedes for the bronze medal on Sunday. "Its not easy," Canadian head coach Kevin Dineen said. "You just dont walk by this, you feel the sting of it and understand its going to be a tough game for both teams. "But it has to be something that we understand about playing for your country. Theres opportunity to finish strong and weve got to come out and show some respect for our country by playing extremely hard." The Czechs dominated overtime, outshooting Canada 5-1 in the extra frame and forcing goalie Mason McDonald to come up big. But the Canadians had a glorious chance to earn the victory when they went on the power play after David Pastrnak was called for hooking Travis Konecny at 2:07, but couldnt come up with the winner. Dineen said that was indeed a lost opportunity for his squad. "Absolutely," he said. "They were able to clear two pucks out and unfortunately for us we didnt have a net presence there. "We had some real skill and some ability to shoot it but nobody standing in front of the net, which was a real issue for us. We needed to capitalize there and I think when you get one of those in overtime you like to think that youve got a real advantage and unfortunately we couldnt get the thing to go in. Mark Jackson Pacers Jersey. " The Canadians forced overtime with third-period goals by Joe Hicketts and Daniel Audette and Dineen said the effort his team had to expend to erase its early deficit came back to haunt it later on. "Yeah, it did," said Dineen, who led Canadas national womens team to Olympic gold in Sochi, Russia. "These players are used to logging a lot of icetime with their respective junior teams but I dont think theyre used to logging such hard minutes like they had to tonight. "That certainly played into it, fatigue at the end." Jiri Smejkal, Jakub Vrana and Michael Spacek scored in regulation for the Czech Republic, which outshot the Canadians 33-30. Mathew Barzal also scored for Canada. The Czechs wasted no time opening the scoring, with Spaceks goal coming just 1:15 into the contest. Vrana made it 2-0 at 7:37 of the second before Smejkal converted on a two-on-one break at 12:57. Barzal cut Canadas deficit to 3-1 with a power-play goal at 14:51. The Canadians came close moments after, with Ryan Gropp having a great scoring chance off a two-on-one, but couldnt beat Czech goalie Vtek Vanecek. Queeneville also had a glorious opportunity to make it a one-goal game with just over two minutes remaining. Hicketts pulled Canada to within 3-2 when his wrist shot from the point beat a screened Vanecek at 5:02 of the third before Audette scored off a goal-mouth scramble in front of Vanecek at 12:21.
