Scott to Sit Out Iona Game

University of North Carolina sophomore guard Melvin Scott will not dress out for Friday night's men's basketball game against Iona due to a violation of team rules. Head coach Matt Doherty announced the suspension on Thursday evening from New York.

Scott is averaging 5.0 points per game and is second on the team in three-point field goals made with 10. He had eight points in last Sunday's 69-48 win at Florida State.

Scott will be back in action on Saturday against either St. John's or Manhattan. The Tar Heels are playing in Madison Square Garden in the Foot Locker/Holiday Festival.

Game times are 6:30 p.m. on Friday and either 3 p.m. or 5:30 p.m. Saturday. The games will be televised on Fox Sports South in North Carolina.
