North Carolina senior Terry diagnosed with strep throat

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
semifinal.

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.
