Hurricanes Hold Off Wolfpack

Miami leaves Raleigh with a narrow victory over NC State.

Hurricanes Hold Off Wolfpack

The Hurricanes escaped North Carolina with a narrow victory over NC State. Once again, it was the freshman Walker (12 points) who garnered much of the attention. But, Bruce Brown also had an impressive night. He led the Hurricanes with 19 points on 7/8 shooting.

Brown showed his hot hand early with two quick threes in the first quarter. A couple of plays later, Brown found a high flying Walker on an alley-oop to give Miami a 18-9 lead. The Wolfpack would go on a run to cut the deficit to 1, however, thanks largely to Omer Yurtseven. He had a big night as well, finishing with 28 points on 12/16 shooting.

The Hurricanes and the Wolfpack would enter halftime in a closely contested game. Miami was in front 36-32.

Miami attempted to stretch their lead after halftime, but Yurtseven would always provide timely buckets for NC state. The second the crowd became silent, he would make a play to re-energize them. However, Miami was not phased by the crowd noise. Brown made sure the team would respond. He gave the Canes momentum with a driving layup and one. A few plays later, Brown swished a three to give Miami a six point lead.

When Walker made a three to give Miami an eight point lead, it seemed as if the Canes might pull away late. But, the Wolfpack kept it close. Another timely NC State bucket would cut the lead back to five.

However, the Wolfpack was never able to catch up with the Hurricanes. After a NC state miss, Lonnie Walker zoomed down the court and found Brown for a thundering dunk and dagger to make the score 82-74.

Miami won by a final score of 86-81. This was an important conference win for a Canes team that is trying to mesh before the ACC tournament.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
