CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina sophomore guard P.J. Hairston won't play at No. 1 Indiana on Tuesday night due to a knee injury.

The school has ruled out Hairston after he sprained his left knee during Sunday's practice. He missed practice Monday and won't travel with the team to face the Hoosiers.

Hairston is third on the team in scoring at 10.8 points off the bench and is shooting 35 percent from 3-point range.

His status is unclear for Saturday's home game against UAB.

The No. 14 Tar Heels' trip to Indiana in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge will be their fifth straight game away from home, including three games at last week's Maui Invitational.
