Hairston To Miss Virginia Game

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – North Carolina freshman guard P.J. Hairston is sidelined with a sore left foot and will be unable to play in tomorrow's ACC game against the Virginia Cavaliers.

Hairston has played in all 24 games and is the Tar Heels' seventh-leading scorer at 6.6 points per contest.

The Greensboro, N.C., native is wearing a protective boot on his left foot and will also not practice this afternoon. He is third on the team in three-pointers made with 30. He played 10 minutes but did not score in Wednesday's game against Duke.

Hairston will be UNC's third guard to miss the Virginia game due to injury – juniors Leslie McDonald and Dexter Strickland are out with knee injuries. Strickland started the first 19 games before injuring his right knee on Jan. 19; he had reconstructive surgery yesterday. McDonald was injured last summer and has missed the entire season.
