This is a press release from the University of North Carolina:

University of North Carolina men’s basketball players P.J. Hairston and Leslie McDonald will not play in this evening’s exhibition game against UNC Pembroke as the school is working with the NCAA to resolve eligibility issues with the student-athletes.

Also, as previously announced, J.P. Tokoto will not play in tonight’s exhibition game. Tokoto played two games in a certified summer league in Wisconsin without filing the proper paperwork.

Carolina plays host to UNC Pembroke at 7:30 p.m. at the Dean E. Smith Center.
