HURRICANES-SEMIN

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- The Carolina Hurricanes have placed forward Alexander Semin on unconditional waivers.

The team announced the move Tuesday, saying it plans to buy out his contract.

The Hurricanes say Semin must clear waivers at noon Wednesday before his deal can be bought out. They say he was told of the move Tuesday.

The 31-year-old Semin has three years remaining on a contract extension signed in March 2013 that pays him $7 million per season.

Semin had a career-worst six goals and added 13 assists in 57 games during a disappointing 2014-15 season. He had 41 goals and 64 assists during three years with Carolina.

ACC AWARDS

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- Duke football player Laken Tomlinson and Virginia women's soccer player Morgan Brian are the Atlantic Coast Conference's male and female athletes of the year.

The league announced its overall award winners Tuesday following a vote by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association.

Tomlinson helped Duke earn its third straight bowl berth and was drafted by the Detroit Lions in the first round.

He received 10 votes to eight for Notre Dame basketball player Jerian Grant and seven for Florida State track and football player Jalen Ramsey.

Brian had 13 votes for the women's award to seven for Louisville swimmer Kelsi Worrell. Brian is the only active college player on the U.S. national team competing at the Women's World Cup.

NASCAR-DAYTONA-CONFEDERATE FLAG

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Daytona International Speedway will not ban the Confederate flag from track property this weekend, but will offer the American flag to those who wish to fly it on property.

Daytona President Joie Chitwood said Tuesday the speedway will offer an exchange program in which fans can trade a flag for the American flag. Daytona's hosts NASCAR races on Saturday and Sunday nights this weekend.

Chitwood said there's not enough time to plan and enforce a ban on the Confederate flag, which NASCAR chairman Brian France does not want flying at NASCAR events.

NASCAR has taken a strong stance against the flag since nine black churchgoers were slain in Charleston, South Carolina on June 17. The suspect in the case, Dylann Roof, embraced Confederate symbols before the attack.
