North Carolina freshman P.J. Hairston will miss Saturday's ACC clash with Virginia because of a sore left foot, the school announced Friday. Consequently, the Tar Heels will be forced to play Tony Bennett's Cavaliers without three guards that at one time projected to be on this roster. The other two are Leslie McDonald (injured in the preseason) and Dexter Strickland (injured during this season).
Hairston had played in each of UNC's first 24 games.
He's averaging 6.6 points per contest.
North Carolina is ranked fifth nationally and coming off a home loss to Duke.
