UNC's Hairston Tweets He's Out For Kentucky Game

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina freshman P.J. Hairston has tweeted that he won't play this weekend at No. 1 Kentucky due to an injured left wrist.

Hairston hurt his wrist when he tried to brace his fall during the second half of Wednesday night's 60-57 win against No. 9 Wisconsin. Hairston left for the locker room with about 12 minutes left.

On Hairston's Twitter account, he posted Thursday that he didn't have a fracture, adding "I'll be back ripping the net soon."

Team spokesman Matt Bowers says doctors are still evaluating Hairston's injury. The fifth-ranked Tar Heels play the Wildcats on Saturday.

The 6-foot-5 reserve is averaging 8.3 points off the bench and shooting 45 percent from 3-point range, best among the team's regulars.

        How do I know they aren't going to win? Kentucky is a much better team, faster, and more athletic. They have a coach that doesn't cry when a fan pulls against their team. The fans who attend the game actually get their butts out of the seat and cheer for their team. So the stats are against your holes, another lost, a week apart.

          So if Kentucky is a better team why would UNC fans need an excuse if they lose? As usual your comments make no sense at all
