WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- We used to supply Stilman White updates quite frequently. That hasn't been the case recently, but that might be changing soon. The former Hoggard standout appears to be done with his Mormon mission. Will he play basketball again at North Carolina? Tar Heel head coach Roy Williams provided insight on that after Tuesday's win against the UNCW Seahawks. “It’s really all up in the air right now because he just got in from his mission,” said UNC coach Roy Williams after his team’s 84-51 win against UNC Wilmington on Tuesday. “I think he has some kind of injury to his foot. We don’t have a scholarship right now. So we’re trying to go through the motions ourselves to try to find out. We’re trying to find out and make sure that we’re right in saying that we don’t have a scholarship for him because we don’t. But we do plan to look into it and see what’s best for our program and best for Stilman.”

Stilman White played in 34 games for UNC during the 2011-12 season. He came off the bench primarily, but he started two NCAA Tournament games due to an injury to UNC guard Kendall Marshall. “I love Stilman to death and feel that eventually he’ll be back as part of our basketball team,” Roy Williams said. “Whether it’s this year or not, I don’t know yet.”

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Blake Griffin scored 13 of his 31 points in the final 7:05 and Jared Dudley got 11 of his 20 points in the third quarter, leading the Los Angeles Clippers to a 112-85 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night.

Dudley faced his second former team in two games, making seven of 10 shots against the club that selected him with their first pick in 2007 and traded him to Phoenix after one season. He had nine points against the Suns on Monday in the Clippers' 107-88 loss.

Chris Paul had 17 points and 14 assists for the defending Pacific Division champions, who beat the Bobcats for the sixth straight time and sent them to their 17th straight road loss against Western Conference opponents.

Al Jefferson and Kemba Walker each scored 14 points for the Bobcats, whose previous six losses all were decided by five points or fewer.
