CLEVELAND -- Second-grader Andrew Caronchi watched the Cavaliers win the title over the Warriors this past June. But he doesnt remember The Stop that Kevin Love had late against Steph Curry. He doesnt particularly remember LeBron James block or Kyrie Irvings 3, either.What he does remember is running out of his house to celebrate the Cavs winning the first professional championship in Cleveland in 52 years and right into a skunk stench for the ages.I watched the championship, and I stayed up until 10 oclock, and I went outside, and we heard skunks and stuff in the backyard, Andrew says. Our backyards got skunks and raccoons. Once a raccoon got caught in our garbage.A few weeks ago, 8-year-old Andrew took the stage with Love. Love would later reflect that he nailed the fancy handshake they had rehearsed: a pound, blowing up the pound and then a WWE-style flex at the end, complete with gratuitous mean mugging. I thought he looked better than me, which is hard to do, Love says.The event was the Cavs annual Big Shots and Little Stars fundraiser for the Flashes of Hope charity. Andrew, who was diagnosed with stage 2 Hodgkin lymphoma when he was just 4 years old, was a guest of honor.For the third straight year since joining the Cavs, Love was a part of the event and chose to dress up with his Little Star as twins. This year he teamed up with Banana Republic for the outfits.Thats what makes it fun, Love says. While its a great event, I also get to throw a little bit of the fashion element into it. ... Same pocket squares, same socks, same colored suit. I went with the turtleneck, he went with the tie.If it sounds vain, thats the point. Flashes of Hope, since it was founded in Cleveland in 2001, has photographed close to 60,000 kids fighting cancer to help them look and feel attractive and invigorated again through a still image as a confidence booster, as they cope with the depths of the disease.Big Shots and Little Stars is the charitys most impactful annual fundraiser, raising more than $1 million each of the past three years to fund research to accelerate a cure for childrens cancer. The night culminates with a strut on a fashion runway spanning the floor of Quicken Loans Arena where the Cavs court usually is, with players chaperoning the child theyre partnered with for his or her moment in the spotlight.Andrew was less impressed by Loves 6-10 frame that more than doubles his size than he was by what was atop Loves head.He had curly hair, Andrew says, matter-of-factly. And I used to have curly hair.Jenny May-Caronchi, Andrews mother, explains: He had straight hair. And then when he had chemo, it all fell out. And it grew back super curly and blond. It was a completely different texture and color.Andrews hair was back matching Loves the night of the fundraiser -- perfectly coiffed and combed -- as did his outfit. Twins.This years event had a Star Wars theme, and event organizers went all out, with character costumes, flown in from Hollywood, not the cheap stuff, according to one Cavs staffer. There was Darth Vader making his signature breathing sounds, a motorized R2-D2 that would literally roll up to the surprised children and several near-7-feet-tall Chewbaccas that elicited more than a few Chris Birdman Andersen jokes from the Cavs.One of the best things to come of it is that Andrews peers at school have been talking to him about cancer and asking him questions, May-Caronchi says. Cancer can be a very scary thing for kids to discuss. But this experience with Kevin Love and the show has made it a more approachable topic for them, which is wonderful.As great as the night was for Andrew, it was just a temporary respite. In fact, he didnt know whether he would make it there.I was sick yesterday, and Im on medicine now, so Im doing good, Andrew says, matter-of-factly, as someone who has already been through chemotherapy and needed five surgeries throughout his treatment, including one to remove his medicine port when it became infected.What does he do when hes feeling sick? I think of happy stuff, Andrew says. That God will keep me safe. Does he pray? Whenever [other] people are sick, I like to do that. Im in Cub Scouts. Im a Wolf. And someones dad was sick and in the hospital, and when we were going home from Cub Scouts, I prayed for him and, actually, he got all better.At 4, Andrew wrestled with severe weight loss and depression stemming from cancer. Love is blown away at his mood now: Hes already gone through so much, and at that time in my life, I felt like I didnt have a worry in the world, and at some point, he was fighting for his life, Love says. Seeing the photo and walking out there with the photo that we had of him when he was going through the treatment, you have to take a step back, and I mentioned perspective, thats really what you get from it.And Andrew, well, he just got a new big buddy who invited him back to The Q to see the Cavs play sometime this season.You can look and say, Hey, thats my friend, Love says.Yeah, Andrew agrees.Ill be like this, Ill score one, and then Ill give you a little, What up, Love says, pantomiming a wave.And Andrew smiled a carefree smile.Adidas NMD R1 Herr Rea .

Its a confidence-building run of success entering Saturdays visit from No. 25 Virginia Tech in a key matchup for the Tar Heels in their bid to repeat as the Atlantic Coast Conferences Coastal Division champion.I think you just see what this teams made of, quarterback Mitch Trubisky said Monday. We keep going back to the word `grit. I think thats a good word to describe this team and . and how were never really out of the fight -- just keep battling to the last second.Its been working out for us and to just keep coming away with wins has been really exciting.The Tar Heels (4-1, 2-0 ACC) re-entered the AP Top 25 after a 37-35 win at then-No. 12 Florida State, a game that saw them blow a 21-point lead and fall behind with 23 seconds left.

Throw in a 74-yard TD punt return by current Cincinnati Bengals running back Gio Bernard with 13 seconds left to break a tie and beat rival North Carolina State in 2012, and the Tar Heels have six wins on final-minute scores under fifth-year coach Larry Fedora.Fedora can point to at least one reason for the success: the Tar Heels run a fast-paced spread offense that doesnt have to change anything in how it operates when time gets tight. And that unit practices plenty of end-game scenarios to get ready.Our guys think its just make the routine plays, Fedora said. We havent had to make any acrobatic flipping catches or anything. .
