Bullock, McAdoo hope to feed off each other

GREENSBORO – Both Reggie Bullock and James Michael McAdoo are in some ways experiencing the NCAA Tournament for the first time this weekend in Greensboro.

Bullock, a sophomore guard, missed the postseason last year because of a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee. McAdoo, on the other hand, is a freshman.

McAdoo saw extended minutes in last week’s ACC Tournament because of John Henson’s left wrist injury. Now, the two anticipate they will be on the court at the same time in many stretches duringUNC’s second-round game against Vermont tomorrow night.

“This means a lot to me because I just observed last year, and I saw what that team needed,” said Bullock, who is averaging nine points and five rebounds a game. “I’m just trying to be a great defensive player who can make shots coming down the stretch.”

Latest news on UNC penalties

The University of North Carolina’s football team has been banned from competing in the postseason in 2012, the NCAA announced on Monday. The postseason ban is the most significant of the additional penalties the NCAA announced in the wake of a multi-pronged scandal that rocked the UNC football program in 2010.

In addition to the postseason ban, the university will forfeit five football scholarships per season for the next three seasons. Former assistant coach John Blake, a central role in the scandal, has been given a “show-cause” provision for the next three years, essentially banning him from coaching in college during that time period.

The investigation began in June 2010, and the NCAA ruled 12 months later that UNC’s football program had committed nine major violations involving academic fraud, improper benefits and former assistant coach John Blake acting as an agent.
