North Carolina guard Reggie Bullock will be back in the lineup for the Tar Heels when they open ACC play at Virginia.
CHAPEL HILL — Reggie Bullock will return from his concussion and play on Sunday when North Carolina opens its conference schedule on the road at Virginia, according to a team spokesman.
Steve Kirschner, a spokesman for the UNC athletic department, wrote about Bullock in a text message: “He’s playing.” According to the UNC basketball team’s official Twitter account, Bullock practiced in full on Saturday before the team departed for Charlottesville, Va.
“Reggie Bullock practiced full speed again today,” read a tweet from @UNC_basketball. “Should be back in starting lineup [Sunday] night in ACC opener at Virginia.”
The Tar Heels and Cavaliers play on Sunday night at 8 at Virginia’s John Paul Jones Arena.
Bullock, who suffered his concussion last week and sat out the Heels’ 79-73 victory against UNLV last Saturday, is UNC’s second-leading scorer and is averaging 13.1 points per game. He has made 47.5 percent of his 3-point attempts, which leads the ACC.
