Sports Minute: Here is the latest South Carolina sports news from The Associated Press

Posted: Updated:

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris laid things out as clearly as he could for the Tigers after their scoreless second half in a 45-21 loss at Georgia this weekend: If you're part of the Tigers' problem, you're "going to get gone." Morris said Monday he challenged the offense to execute and work like the Clemson attack has for much of his four seasons.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Panthers quarterback Cam Newton returned to the practice field wearing an oversized flak jacket designed to provide added protection for his fractured ribs. Newton smiled and even stopped to pose for a picture Monday with his newly enhanced armor before walking into practice.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - An offseason spent pushing the defense to force turnovers paid off in North Carolina's season-opening victory. Now the Tar Heels must prove those defensive improvements were something more than just a one-time burst against a lower-division opponent, starting Saturday night against San Diego State.

ATLANTA (AP) - Cole Hamels and three Philadelphia Phillies relievers combined to pitch a no-hitter Monday, beating the Atlanta Braves 7-0 and giving a last-place team a rare reason to celebrate. Hamels was pulled after six innings and seemed fine with the decision.
