Here we are, the last full week of February technically kicks off “March Madness”. I know the tournament is still a few weeks away, but the water cooler talk has already shifted from Richard Sherman and the Seattle Seahawks to who people are going to pick in their tournament bracket.

Former North Carolina Tar Heel P.J. Hairston has endured some rough times the past several months and it all ended with his dismissal from Chapel Hill after making multiple mistakes and violations.
Hairston missed the first 10 games of the season while the NCAA investigated potential rules violations and UNC announced on Friday December 20th they would not seek his NCAA reinstatement.
During his two years at Chapel Hill, the 6’6 guard averaged 10.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 71 games. He shot 38% from the field, 34% behind the arc and 80% from the free-throw line.

Hairston received impermissible benefits, the Tar Heels look to continue to prove that they are a force to be reckoned with.
