UNC STUDENT MASCOT DIES FROM INJURIES

Jason Ray, a North Carolina student who performed as a mascot for the school's basketball team, died three days after being struck by a car hours before an NCAA Tournament game. He was 21. Ray died Monday morning, said Steve Kirschner, the university's associate athletic director for communications.

An NCAA official told ESPN.com that the men's basketball tournament selection committee is discussing with the four Final Four teams to determine how they will memoralize Ray's death prior to Saturday's national semifinals.
