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
...Owls fall to Tar Heels in opener.
...Gantt leads Owls with 18 points.
As a buisness owner, it's my job to make sure EVERYTHING is in place. Earlier this week Coach said he would be cleared before the game. If I was in charge , I wouldn't make such statements unless I was sure. Maybe I'm just a stickler for detail. Who knows. As far as the game. UNC played as bad as us in the first half but played much better in the second. We had a ton of open looks but the shooting % was ....um.....not too good.
I don't think he said he would be cleared for the game. I think it was more of a possibility but I could be wrong.
