UNC-Chapel Hill's bright basketball future will be on display this Saturday, January 9, when two prospective Tar Heels lead their high school teams into Chapel Hill’s Dean E. Smith Center. Reggie Bullock of Kinston (NC) High and P.J. Hairston of Dudley (Greensboro, NC) High will meet, again, in the renewal of arguably the state’s richest secondary level boys’ basketball rivalry during the past decade.

Bullock, a 6-foot-7 senior wing, and his fellow Vikings are no strangers to the Smith Center court. Kinston claimed the 2007-08 N.C. High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) 3A state title in the hallowed building by defeating Trinity 60-58 on March 16, 2008. Kinston qualified for the championship by virtue of its 68-51 semifinals win over Dudley – including then freshman Hairston – a week earlier.

Hairston, now a 6-foot-6 junior wing, netted 13 points to Bullock’s 11 in the previously referenced game. Hairston outscored Bullock 29-28 in the school’s 2008-09 NCHSAA 3A state quarterfinals match-up, but Hairston and his fellow Panthers fell short 67-64.

Kinston, coached by Wells Gulledge, won seven of its first 10 contests this season, which included trips to the nationally prestigious Iolani Classic (Honolulu, HI) and GlaxoSmithKline Holiday Invitational (Raleigh). Bullock led the GSK tourney in total scoring (81 points), averaging 27 points over his team’s three outings en route to Invitational MOP (Most Outstanding Player) honors. The Vikings were tourney runners-up, falling in the final 55-54 at the buzzer to national power Rice (NY).

Dudley, coached by David Price, also posted a 7-3 mark during its first 10 games. The Panthers competed in the nationally prestigious City of Palms Classic (Fort Myers, FL), where Hairston averaged nearly 22 points over his team’s three games.

Saturday’s game time is 7 p.m. Admission gates will open at 6 p.m. Tickets are available online at www.tarheelblue.com, and/or on-site (at Ernie Williamson Athletics Center – two buildings from Smith Center at corner of Bowles Dr. and Tar Heel Blvd.) Saturday for $10. Videography, signs, noisemakers and body paint ARE NOT allowed. Bags carried by attending patrons will be checked at gates.

Parking information – including locations and applicable fees – will be available Thursday, January 7.
