CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina is getting by on the perimeter while its two best outside shooters sit with NCAA eligibility concerns.
The No. 18 Tar Heels (6-2) host No. 11 Kentucky on Saturday with a perimeter rotation that consists primarily of sophomores Marcus Paige and J.P. Tokoto, and freshman Nate Britt.
While the Tar Heels miss leading scorer P.J. Hairston and senior Leslie McDonald, the Paige-Tokoto-Britt trio has been good enough to help UNC upset Louisville and Michigan State in the past month.
