UNC: Hairston doubtful for Virginia Tech

  •  

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina sophomore guard P.J. Hairston is doubtful for Saturday's game against Virginia Tech after suffering a concussion at Boston College.

Hairston was hurt Tuesday night when he collided with teammate Dexter Strickland on the defensive end during the first half of an 82-70 win. He didn't play again and had to be taken off the court on a stretcher before returning to the bench and wearing a towel over his head.

The school said Wednesday that Hairston returned home with the team and is improving. He is a gametime decision, though trainer Chris Hirth said in a statement that Hairston is "unlikely" to play.

Hairston is the team's third-leading scorer at 12.4 points per game. He had made four 3-pointers against BC before his injury.
