Here's an update on freshman forward Chris Bryant.
Bryant has not received clearance from NCAA Clearinghouse.
The freshman, who likely would have been starting, did not make trip.
Oh no. We might lose now.
It's not a matter of if we would win or lose vs. North Carolina with Bryant, it's the case of another new player expected to contribute hasn't been cleared.
FINAL: No. 11 North Carolina 80, FAU 56
