North Carolina announced that it will be without its superstar point guard, Cole Anthony, for at least another month. Anthony underwent surgery to repair a partially torn meniscus in his right knee and he will not return to the court for another four to six weeks.

Anthony was leading his team with 19.1 points and 3.6 assists per game prior to the injury, and he is in consideration for the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft. In UNC’s first game without him this past weekend, the Tar Heels suffered a stunning loss to Wofford College, 68-64, in the Dean Dome.

No. 2 Gonzaga is up next on the schedule tomorrow night in Spokane (Gonzaga by 50) and then Kentucky fans will get a firsthand look at the Anthony-less Tar Heels when UNC meets UCLA in the first game of the CBS Sports Classic doubleheader on Saturday.

Tough news for the Heels.

    Watch UNC will end up as a dangerous 8 or 9 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

      At least he’ll get to come back this season. That should give him a good chance to secure a high spot in the draft. Still, college ball would be more interesting with him healthy.

      Agree, I feel bad for him but it couldn’t happen to a more deserving program.

    Technically, that game was played at Carmichael Auditorium, and it’s something I wish Kentucky would do for one game a year at Memorial. One of the best sports environments I’ve ever been a part of was that NIT game in 2009. As bad as Rupp attendance has been the last couple of years, holding one game a year at Memorial doesn’t seem like the bottom line would be impacted too much.

      Carmichael’s configuration has not been changed since they moved to their current facility. The only thing that is the same about Memorial Coliseum since the Wildcats moved to Rupp Arena is the exterior of the building. Today’s inside barely resembles the grand old lady that it was. I can’t bare to go inside. Once the best college basketball menu in the world. Today UK should be embarrassed of what it has become.

    I reckon that will give him time to study for his fake exams from the fake classes he’s been fake attending.

    Ol’ Roy going to be sent out to pasture in another year or two. Reminds me of Tubby somewhat. They will silently force him out.

    I feel for kid but I don’t give a damn for North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
