Tar Heels' Stilman White just wants to scrap

CHAPEL HILL -- A few other reporters and I had a chance to spend some time on Tuesday with Stilman White, the North Carolina freshman guard who’s likely to see an expanded role given that Dexter Strickland has been lost for the season with a knee injury.

I wrote a story about White that you can read right here.

Though he spent about half of his childhood growing up in North Carolina, in Wilmington, White never dreamed he’d play at a school like UNC. The Tar Heels began recruiting him after Larry Drew III abruptly left school about a year ago.

So here White is. He has played only about four minutes per game, and it’s not all that likely he plays a lot more than that. But still, his contributions could be valuable, as he’ll be asked to give starting point guard Kendall Marshall some time to rest here and there.

Said White: “I’ve got to make sure I come in and I stay on edge, and play with some edge and play hard and just kind of be a scrappy kid and just see what happens out there.”

8 McDaddies on the team, preseason #1, and they play like they don't give a care.

I am looking for Stillman to at least play like he cares.

Is Macadoodle a Mickey D's player? besides being big and tall, he has no skills.

I don't see Roy making him any better, he never makes his players any better.

Wolfpack by 4.
