North Carolina guard PJ Hairston was taken off the court in a stretcher and diagnosed with a concussion after hitting his head on the floor following a collision with one of his teammates during the Tar Heels’ 82-70 win at Boston College Tuesday. Hairston was attempting to block a shot on defense when he collided with teammate Dexter Strickland. His head landed hard on the floor and he was in obvious pain. The sophomore guard was taken off the court in a stretcher after being unable to walk off on his own. “It was scary,” UNC freshman point guard Marcus Paige said, per The News & Observer. “Because I thought he’d be all right, and then he kind of did the little stumble.” Hairston was later diagnosed with a concussion. The freak incident marred a potential breakout game for Hairston. He was 4-for-5 on his field goals and made all four of his 3-point attempts. His 14 points in just 12 minutes tied him for second on the team. He was also on his way to seeing more action after playing just 17 minutes in each of the team’s previous two games.
