THE SCOTT ROBERTSON MEMORIAL OPENS TODAY at Roanoke Country Club. Nappy explores whether this is the year a local teen wins one of the older age divisions.
-UVa’s No. 3 tailback, Clifton Richardson, has received his release and is planning to transfer.
-ESPN analyst Fran Fraschilla says Erick Green is a sleeper in the NBA draft. “He not only led the country in scoring, but he’s a highly efficient player. He is a kid that makes tough shots. He’s a willing passer, 67% at the rim, 40% from three, nearly 50% from two. And the only major question mark I could see with him is his narrow frame. Defensively he must improve.”
-Here’s more on the apparent suicide of former NASCAR driver Dick Trickle. A Lincoln County dispatcher received a call — believed to have been placed by Trickle — that “there would be a dead body and it would be his,” that county’s sheriff’s office said in a news release. There was no answer when authorities tried to call the number back.
-UVa beats No. 2 North Carolina in baseball, while Virginia Tech knocks off Wake Forest.

-The Spurs close out Golden State in six, while the Knicks beat the Pacers to stay alive in the East.
-Bruins beat the Rangers in Game 1. Kings take a 2-0 series lead over the Sharks. Game 2 of Ottawa-Pittsburgh tonight at 7:30.
NAME THAT TUNE
If your dream house
Is a double-wide trailer sitting back in the holler
On a country road
Then baby that’s where we’ll go
If you don’t wanna settle down
We can bounce around from town to town
And that’s fine with me
If you wanna just ride the breeze
