CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) Things finally seem normal for Sylvia Hatchell and North Carolina after a year that was anything but.

In that time, the Hall of Fame coach was diagnosed with leukemia and missed the season, her freshman-led team pushed all the way to an NCAA regional final in her absence, then star freshman Diamond DeShields abruptly transferred.

Now Hatchell is back, along with a roster stocked with talent and experience from last season's run.
