The Last Time Out
The Buzz were impressive in their last contest, defeating the Wizards 99-86 in Greenville, SC. Gary Neal, who started at shooting guard in place of Lance Stephenson (foot), was the team’s leading scorer with 19 points. Reserve point-guard Jannero Pargo was also impressive, hitting four threes in seventeen minutes of action.
Hornet To Watch For
P.J. Hairston: The preseason is the P.J.’s opportunity to prove that he’s possibly a worthy piece in Steve Clifford’s regular season lineup. After multiple off-court incidents during the offseason, Hairston’s character and commitment to basketball was in question. However, if he can continue to build on his solid 13-point game against the Wizards throughout the preseason, maybe the former UNC star can find some minutes at the beginning of the season.
Unfortunately, this game will not be televised locally, but can be found on the radio on WFNZ (610AM) will have radio coverage from the Cable Box beginning at 7PM.
