North Carolina’s Williams: Meeks, White battling stomach bug


North Carolina coach Roy Williams says sophomore big man Kennedy Meeks and reserve point guard Stilman White are battling a stomach bug.

Williams said Friday that White won’t travel with the team for Saturday’s game at Clemson and it was unclear whether Meeks would be limited for the No. 19 Tar Heels.

The 6-foot-9 Meeks is second on the team in scoring (12.8 points) and is averaging a team-high 8.9 rebounds.

White, a sophomore, has seen only a handful of minutes in seven games this season.

After playing Clemson, UNC (10-3) hosts No. 14 Notre Dame on Monday and a visit from fifth-ranked Louisville next weekend.
