Hicks shows his value in UNC scrimmage at 'Late Night' event

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) Isaiah Hicks scored 14 points in North Carolina's intrasquad scrimmage to punctuate Friday's annual ''Late Night with Roy'' show, which is the ceremonial start to the basketball season.

Hicks, a 6-foot-9 junior, went 6-for-9 from the field according to unofficial statistics in the White team's 41-32 victory over the Blue.

The school honored late ESPN sportscaster and alumnus Stuart Scott, first by inducting him into the North Carolina Journalism Hall of Fame in the afternoon.

Afterward, the school honored Scott during ''Late Night,'' which Scott first hosted in 2001 and did so 10 times. Scott died in January after a lengthy fight against cancer.
