The Big Switch: A Timelapse from Raleigh’s RBC Center


Ice is removed only twice a year at Raleigh’s RBC Center — for the Circus and at the end of the hockey season. All other events that occur during hockey season, including monster truck rallies, take place on top of the ice, which is protected by thick layers of fiberglass and, in some cases, plywood. This timelapse, produced by CPJ senior Galen Clarke, shows us just how much manpower goes into making the switch from basketball to hockey.

Behind Hansbrough, Heels Enter 2008 on Top

Behind the play of star forward Tyler Hansbrough, the Tar Heels enter ACC play unbeaten at 14-0 and on top of all the college basketball polls. The expectations were high when Hansbrough opted to return for the 2007-2008 season, and thus far, the junior hasn’t disappointed. He has seven consecutive 20-point games going into Sunday’s game against Clemson and is nearly averaging a double-double. Recently, the quintessential Big Man on Campus agreed to allow Carolina Photojournalism a glimpse into his life.

CPJSW Revisted: More Photos from Workshop Finalists

Given that judging was so difficult, especially in the action category, we’ve decided to showcase more photos from the first annual Carolina Photojournalism Sports Workshop. While they didn’t receive any awards, these images made it to the final stages of judging and represent some fine work. Great workshop everybody.
