UNC’s Hairston Staying in School
North Carolina sophomore forward P.J. Hairston, whose insertion into the starting lineup in February helped push the Tar Heels to the NCAA tournament, will return to UNC next season, the school announced Friday. Hairston led the Tar Heels with 14.6 points per game this season.
“I have spent a lot of time with my family over the past couple of days discussing school and my future, and I have decided to return to the University of North Carolina for my junior year,” Hairston said in a statement. “I value the experiences I have had over the past two years in Chapel Hill and hope to continue to grow under Coach Roy [Williams'] guidance.”
