P.J. Hairston’s new role had a positive impact on UNC
Roy Williams had been thinking about making the change for a couple of weeks now. It took a 26-point drubbing at the hands of Miami last Saturday for the North Carolina basketball coach to finally pull the trigger and insert sophomore P.J. Hairston into his starting lineup. “We’ve been struggling scoring the ball,” Williams said. “So putting P.J. in there gives us another scorer in the lineup.” (Wilmington Star News)

But, those who wanted sophomore P.J. Hairston to get a lot more playing time and for Williams to trim to rotation were right, and it’s likely how UNC will play moving forward. (Fox Sports Carolinas)
