UNC players top N.C. State's guys again

DURHAM - C.J. Leslie clapped in disgust late Tuesday night as Ryan Harrow's pass slipped through his fingers and out of bounds, the fumble preventing what would have been an easy layup.

It was that kind of night for N.C. State recruits Leslie, Ryan Harrow, Lorenzo Brown and Joseph Uchebo of Team McGladrey in the North Carolina Pro-Am Summer League at N.C. Central.

They ran out to an 18-point, first-half lead, but trailed by halftime and ultimately fell for the second time to Team Stackhouse, whose roster includes North Carolina freshmen Reggie Bullock and Harrison Barnes, Tar Heel sophomore John Henson, and Tar Heel commitment P.J. Hairston.

After defeating Team McGladrey 82-72 a week earlier, Team Stackhouse rallied for a 59-51 win in the rematch.

"We fought back," Henson said. ". . .That's what we always do at Carolina. It's a good preview of what we have to do this year, fight back from early deficits."

Barnes, the top-rated recruit in the Class of 2010, led Team Stackhouse with 18 points. Harrow scored 17 points to lead Team McGladrey, which played without N.C. State senior Tracy Smith. Leslie added 16 points, including two free throws that put his team ahead 47-46 late in the game. But Barnes answered with a 3-pointer and two free throws as the lead changed hands for the last time.

Leslie shot 4-for-12 from the foul line, missing seven in a row at one point. N.C. State fans, whose roars filled the gym as Team McGladrey built the early lead, exited quietly as Team Stackhouse ran out the clock.

Funny how you guys mentioned the State team being w/out Smith, laying the groundwork for an excuse as to why they lost. Yet you conveniently left out that the Carolina guys were w/out a pt guard and had a rising Sophomore from Kinston HIGH SCHOOL running the point to fill in (which is the main reason State's guys built the big lead...off of his early turnovers).

Not that this game matters, but just a subtle, sad reminder of the State flavor that these articles have taken on since joining with the News & Disturber.

It will always be tough playing UNC-CHeat. When breaking the rules is the norm., most other schools will certainly be playing with less assets talent wise.

But keep sitting on the throne. Just understand that lies, illegal money, trips, etc...is what it's about. It's been in your bball program for decades.

After two weeks of investigation and now Greg Little Sr. says he paid for everything.....lol. Wasn't Little using the argument that he grew up extremely poor, in poverty and went to UNC to get away from it. Now his pop has been able to afford a $10k multiple trip get-away. RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT!

Wayne Ellington's $400,000 house was legit?

How bout the job for Tyler's mom, Rashard McCants mom, etc...

The hiring of a hs coach to get a certain player, etc...

Yea, squeaky clean is the way at UNC....lol. You know it's not true, we know it's not true, and the players/staff know the same.

Its too funny to see State fans bashing Carolina for cheating! wasn't it Shackelford that got caught stealing stereos from the student dorms, but still managed to play for the basketball team?
As for Hansbrough's mother, her job came AFTER Hansbrough had already played for two seasons at Carolina (I believe it was two, but I could be wrong) and she has a legitimate profession! Its not like when Duke alums hired Chris Duhon's mom and put her up in a nice home after hers was foreclosed in LA, or Carlos Boozer's dad getting a job that had never posted anywhere else, but happened to be at a business run by a wealthy, generous Blue Devil Booster.
Face it, Carolina has succeeded without cheating for decades. Even when Coach McGuire got pinched, it wasn't for recruiting or players not going to class, it was for not keeping receipts for extravagant meals with sports writers!

In response to the guy questioning how much UNC players go to class, I just graduated from UNC and was an Sports Admin major so was in classes with Ty Lawson, Ed Davis, Larry Drew, and Tyler Hansbrough and with athletes from football and baseball as well and the only time they missed class was when traveling for away games. I look forward to seeing these guys come into the Dean Dome this year and, as much as I dislike State, it will still be good to see them be competitive again. The ACC is better off with the Big 4 teams being competitive.
