Longhorns stun No. 7 Tar Heels in Las Vegas Kerwin Roach II had a career-high 32 points with seven assists and six steals to lead Texas over No. 7 North Carolina 92-89 in the third round of the Las Vegas Invitational. Roach also had six rebounds and was 12 of 15 from the field, including 3 of 3 from deep. The senior topped his previous best of 26 points with an emphatic dunk with 8:27 left for a 73-65 lead. Roach and North Carolina freshman Coby White went back and forth all game. White had 33 points, but he missed a 3-pointer that would have put the Tar Heels (5-1) ahead with 1:01 left. He was 7 of 10 from 3-point range.

North Carolina freshman guard Coby White is expected to miss Wednesday’s game against UNC-Wilmington. Head coach Roy Williams said on his radio show on Monday night that the 6-foot-5 White has been dealing with an ankle injury that has held him out of practice.

“Coby’s ankle is bothering him a little bit so we’re holding him out,” Williams said. “Hasn’t practiced.”

White is No. 12 North Carolina’s leading scorer this season as he’s putting up 15.3 points, 3.6 assists and 2.1 rebounds per game. The freshman seems to have really found his footing over the last few games as White had big games against Texas and UCLA for the Tar Heels.

Without White in the lineup, the Tar Heels should be fine against a team like UNC-Wilmington — although seeing where the lead-guard minutes go will be a subplot to monitor. After Wednesday’s game, North Carolina doesn’t play again until they face Gonzaga on Dec. 15, so that will give White an additional 10 days of rest before he’s probably really needed.

FBI still looking for suspect in North Carolina girl's death.
The FBI continues its search for a suspect in the disappearance and death of a North Carolina teenage girl. A news release from the agency said it's offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the death of Hania Aguilar. The girl's body was found in a body of water in Robeson County on Nov. 27 about 10 miles (16 kilometers) south of the mobile home park where she was kidnapped on Nov. 5 after going outside to start a relative's SUV before school. Police say a man forced Hania into an SUV and drove off.
