UNC's Stilman White used to be a "big-school hater"

CHAPEL HILL, NC (RALEIGH NEWS & OBSERVER) -- Stilman White spent nearly half of his childhood growing up in Wilmington, but he was never much of a Tar Heels basketball fan.

Instead, the Hoggard High School graduate pulled for a couple of lesser-known schools out west - schools he thought he might attend before North Carolina came in with a late scholarship offer about a year ago.

"I was kind of a big-school hater, you know," White said Tuesday. "I was always pulling for Utah or BYU - the kind of mid-major schools."

Perhaps it's fitting that White rooted for the underdogs. It's a role he's adopting now, as North Carolina's backup point guard.
