Robert Willett/Raleigh News & Observer/TNS via Getty Images(BOSTON) -- University of North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams collapsed during the game against Boston College on Tuesday.

The 65-year-old, who has coached the Tar Heels since 2003, fell on the sidelines during the first media timeout of the second half.

A tweet from Carolina Basketball said the collapse was "due to dizziness" and "vertigo-related."

Steve Kirschner, spokesman for UNC Athletic Department, said Williams "has a history of veritgo and occasionally it will flare up if he makes a sudden movement..."

 

Roy Williams’ collapse due to dizziness earlier this half was vertigo-related.

The coach will head back to Chapel Hill with the rest of the team Tuesday night, according to a tweet.

Stephen Dunn/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin has been suspended for four games without pay after he punched a team staffer.

According to a statement Tuesday from Clippers owner Steve Ballmer and head coach Doc Rivers, Griffin hit the employee on January 23.

The statement also said the 26-year-old's wages would be "withheld for one additional game for injuries he sustained."

"We have made it clear that this conduct has no place in the Clippers organization," said the statement. "Blake is remorseful and has apologized for his actions. He is a valued member of our Clippers family and we support him as he rejoins the team. He understands his actions have consequences, and is eager to get back to work with his teammates, the organization and Clipper Nation which starts immediately with rehab, appearances and attendance at games."

According to ESPN, Griffin will lose $859,442 from his salary of $18,907,725.

The money Griffin is supposed to make from the five games will go to charities for disadvantaged youth in Los Angeles.

RJ Sangosti/The Denver Post via Getty Images(DENVER) -- The Denver Broncos celebrated their Super Bowl 50 win on Tuesday with a massive parade at home.

School was in session in Denver on Tuesday, but that didn't stop fans from skipping class and work to show support for their team. A sea of an estimated 800,000 people wearing orange and blue gathered in front of Denver City Hall to cheer for quarterback Peyton Manning, Super Bowl MVP Von Miller, and the rest of the team as they rode through the city on fire engines carrying the coveted Vince Lombardi trophy.

Manning attributed the win to having a "great culture in [their] locker room" saying, "Guys fight for each other."

"We were so sure of our game plan," Miller told the crowd. "We were so sure of ourselves, we came into the game with energy and confidence and came out with the win."

The Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers 24-10 on Sunday night for the team's third Super Bowl win. Despite predictions he would be retiring after the game, Manning still has not formally announced any formal retirement plans.

Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images(SANTA CLARA, Calif.) -- Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton defended his decision to walk out of the Super Bowl's post-game press conference after his team's loss to the Denver Broncos.

"Show me a good loser and I'll show you a loser," he said Tuesday as players cleaned out their lockers.

"I've got no more tears to cry," Newton said, according to ESPN. "I've obviously had a lot of time to think about it. I've seen so much blown out of proportion."

A Broncos player could be heard boasting about his team's win as Newton was answering questions from reporters.

For his part, Chris Harris Jr., the Broncos player in question, said that he did not intentionally try to interrupt Newton.

"I would have been mad, too, if I was Cam," Harris told ESPN on Monday. "To be able to hear your opponent right behind you talking, nobody wants to hear that. So I think that was a bad setup, but things happen. But you have to deal with it and approach things like a man, and we've been in that situation where we lost a Super Bowl and be able to take things as they come. I'm just happy we were on the good side of things this time."

Newton said "that's cool" if he offended anyone by walking out, but he won't change his personality.

"At the end of the day, when you invest so much time and sacrifice so much and things don't go as planned, the emotions take over. That's what happens. As far as trying to be like this person, trying to be like that person ... the truth of the matter is I'm not trying to be like this person," Newton said Tuesday, according to ESPN.

He continued: "This is a great league with or without me. I am my own person. I said it since day one. I am who I am. I know what I'm capable of and I know where I'm going. I don't have to conform to anybody else's wants for me to do. I'm not that guy."

iStock/Thinkstock(TORONTO) -- The Toronto Maple Leafs has finalized a nine-player trade with provincial rival Ottawa Senators, both teams announced on Tuesday.

The focus of the trade is on Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf being dealt to the Senators.

Ottawa will also get forwards Matt Frattin, Casey Bailey, and Ryan Rupert, and defenseman Cody Donaghey from Toronto.  In return, Toronto will get defenseman Jared Cowen, forwards Colin Greening, Milan Michalek, and Tobias Lindberg, as well as Ottawa’s second-round 2017 NHL draft pick.

Phaneuf, 30, is a three-time All-Star, and has three goals and 21 assists in his 51 games for Toronto in the 2015-2016 season.  He was named the 18th captain for the Maple Leafs in June 2010.

The All-Star defenseman still has five more years on his $7-million contract with the Maple Leafs after this season.

Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images(SACRAMENTO) -- With a subpar record more than halfway through the season, the Sacramento Kings feel they need a coaching change -- so they’re planning to fire head coach George Karl in the next few days, league sources told ESPN.

The Kings made the decision internally that Karl will be fired after Sacramento’s last game before the All-Star Break Wednesday in Philadelphia, the sources said.

Final details are still being worked out, but NBA sources said former Kings forward Corliss Williamson remains the favorite to become the interim coach.

So far this season, the Kings are 21-31, putting them in 10th place in the Western Conference.

iStock/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) — One gymnast is tumbling into Facebook glory with more than 22 million views on her epic hip-hop-themed floor routine.

Sophina DeJesus, a senior at UCLA, nailed her floor routine versus Utah with moves that would make even Beyoncé proud. She struts, she dabs and she Nae Naes in her shiny silver and blue uniform with matching black and blue ponytail.

She perfectly sticks all her landings, pulls off an unbelievable triple flip into a split and caps it off with a salute like it’s no big deal.

The officials at the meet gave DeJesus a 9.925, helping earn UCLA the overall victory.

The routine has been shared on Facebook by ESPN and gymnastic groups from as far away as Australia.
