CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- North Carolina senior Reyshawn Terry
has been diagnosed with strep throat, but was expected to play
against Southern California in Friday's night East Regional
Terry has been sick for nearly a week, starting when he missed
the shootaround because of a headache and fever before the Tar
Heels' second-round win against Michigan State.
Terry followed that by missing two days of practice. The school
said Terry was improving and didn't have a fever Wednesday.
The 6-foot-8 Terry is averaging 9.8 points for the Tar Heels
(30-6). He scored 12 of his 14 points in the second half to help
hold off the Spartans on Saturday.
