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.

“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.
