The drama surrounding North Carolina guard P.J. Hairston continues for the Tar Heels, as he and two of his teammates sat out Friday's exhibition against UNC Pembroke, ESPN.com's C.L. Brown reports. All three were held out because of pending eligibility issues.

Hairston had a busy summer in all of the wrong ways, driving a car rented by an ex-convict and getting popped going 93 in a 65 mph zone. Hairston and fellow junior James Michael McAdoo are the leading returning scorers on the team, and they represent UNC's best chance at reaching its first Final Four since 2009.
