Chapel Hill, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - North Carolina announced Monday that
longtime head women's basketball coach Sylvia Hatchell has successfully
completed chemotherapy treatments for leukemia and will be back behind the
bench for the upcoming 2014-15 season.
Hatchell spent all of last season battling the disease, which was diagnosed during a physical exam back in October. Her leukemia has since gone into remission, allowing her to make recruiting trips and attend Tar Heel booster club events in recent weeks.
