It was poor shooting that did in the Pirates

JEREZ, Spain -- Jenson Button steered his repaired McLaren to the fastest lap on Wednesday, and Nico Rosberg helped Mercedes rebound from Lewis Hamiltons crash with the longest run on the second day of Formula One preseason testing. Otherwise, most teams continued to struggle with their new cars following a massive rulebook overhaul that includes a shift to a turbo engine and more sophisticated energy recovery systems. Four-time defending world champion Sebastian Vettel only managed eight laps around the Jerez track before Red Bulls engine maker, Renault, reported a malfunction and the team decided to call it quits. That gave Vettel a total of 11 laps to start the preseason. "Obviously weve not had a lot of running and have a few problems to sort out, but with such big rule changes it is usual to have some teething problems. Thats what tests are for, to sort those issues out," said Vettel, who now hands the wheel to new teammate Daniel Ricciardo for the remaining two days in southern Spain. An electrical problem had kept Button in the garage on Tuesday, but he was the first out on wet tires in the morning and after the asphalt had dried he set the benchmark lap time with 1 minute, 24.165 seconds. The former world champion is aiming to help McLaren bounce back from its worst season since 1980 after it didnt reach the podium last year. Rosberg led the eight-car field with 97 laps, a day after a front wing problem sent Hamiltons Mercedes flying into the barrier. Rosberg said the new Mercedes F1 W05 has little in common with its predecessor and compared its steering wheel to a "smartphone with all the information on it." After overnight rain, the sessions 9 a.m. start was delayed as a tractor worked its way around the track spraying more water on the already damp asphalt so teams could test Pirellis tires for wet surfaces. But by noon the sun had come out and the track was dry as forecasts of showers never materialized, leaving teams to run under normal conditions. All the teams are struggling to get their cars race ready in time for the season-opening Australian Grand Prix on March 16. They will have two more tests in Bahrain before heading to Melbourne. So far, they have combined for 424 laps across two days of testing. Last year, with the preseason starting after far fewer tweaks to the rules governing car design, drivers combined for more than 1,500 laps over the first two days here. Ferrari appears to be handling the new regulations the best. Kimi Raikkonen followed up his fastest lap time from Tuesday with the second-fastest lap on Wednesday, 0.647 seconds behind Button. Local favourite Fernando Alonso will drive for Ferrari on Thursday and Friday. McLarens promising recovery from Tuesdays no-show coincided with its hiring of Eric Boullier as its new racing director. Boullier joins a week after leaving rival Lotus, in a restructuring at McLaren that recently included luring back former team principal Ron Dennis as its new chief executive. F1 newcomer Marcus Ericsson came to a stop in his Caterham for the days third and final red flag. Sergio Perezs Force India had spouted smoke earlier after Esteban Gutierrez ended up in the gravel in his Sauber. F1s new rules include a shift to a 1.6-litre V6 turbo engine from last years 2.4-litre V8. They also affect the cars fuel limits, weight and body design. jerseys cheap nfl .

Roy Williams squad has probably underachieved in the early going this season, now sitting at 5-2 on the year. The Tar Heels have impressive wins over the likes of UCLA and Florida on their resume, but have dropped a pair of games to Butler (74-66) and most recently, Iowa (60-55). UNC alum Jeff Lebo is in his fifth season as head coach of East Carolina. The Pirates havent exactly gotten off to a fast start, sitting at an even 4-4 through eight games. The team has alternated wins and losses thus far and enters this game off a 72-63 road loss at Florida Atlantic. North Carolina has won all three previous meetings with East Carolina, including the last one, a 93-87 shootout at the Smith Center in 2012. An obvious lack of consistency has plagued the Pirates in the early stages of the season, despite the team shooting a decent .467 from the floor overall. ECU is averaging 73.4 ppg this year and holds a +6.0 scoring margin to date. B.J. Tyson hasnt started a single game yet, but he does lead the team in scoring at 16.0 ppg. Caleb White is next in line at 14.4 ppg, followed by Terry Whisnant and his 11.5 ppg. The team did lose some depth early on with a hiip injury to Marshall Guilmette (12.dddddddddddd0 ppg) leaving him sidelined after just two games. It was poor shooting that did in the Pirates at FAU last week, as the team collectively shot just .388 from the floor, including a mere 3-of-11 from behind the arc. White led three Pirates in double figures in the loss, posting 18 points. Tyson added 16 off the bench, while Kanu Aja finished with 11. Poor shooting was what did in the Tar Heels at home last week against Iowa, as the hometown team shot under 30 percent from the floor in both halves and finished the game at a dismal 27.9 percent efficiency. The team made just 19 field goals overall and was an ugly 4-of-23 from long range. Kennedy Meeks continued his strong play in the frontcourt, posting a double-double of 15 points and 12 rebounds. Marcus Paige had 13 points in the loss, but failed to dole out a single assist in the game. The 55 points against the Hawkeyes were a season-low by a large margin, as UNC enters this game averaging a still impressive 77.6 ppg. Four of the teams five starters are averaging double-digit scoring totals, starting with Paiges 14.9 ppg. The 6-foot-9, 270-pound Meeks has been a force down low, shooting .633 from the field and averaging a double-double with 14.0 points and 10.0 rebounds per game. Justin Jackson and Brice Johnson round out the productive quartet with 11.0 and 10.1 ppg, respectively.
