P.J. Hairston Says He’ll Play This Season


North Carolina guard P.J. Hairston has broken his silence, and he sounds confident that he’ll have a good season.

While talking to Daily Tar Heel, Hairston made it clear that “he will play this season.”

“Yeah, I’ll be on the court,” he said. “I’m not sure how long I’ll have to sit out. I haven’t found out yet, but whatever it is I’m ready for it.”

“I just have to prepare myself mentally,” he said. “Just try to keep myself around positive people for the most part, then just having someone in my ear talking to me and giving me advice. But other than that, I’ve just been trying to stay positive.”

Hairston’s troubles of course began when he was caught driving without a license and marijuana possession on June 5.
