CHAPEL HILL– UNC will be taking on UNC-Pembroke tonight without the aid of two of their biggest stars.

It was announced Friday afternoon by the UNC Athletic Department that both P.J. Hairston and Leslie McDonald will be held out of action in the opening exhibition.

Carolina is working with the NCAA to clear up eligibility issues with the pair of student-athletes.

Also, J.P. Tokoto will miss the game tonight. Announced last week, Tokoto will refrain from competition as he played two games in a certified summer league without filing necessary paperwork.
