Former UNC Big Man John Henson Protests Suspension of Two Tar Heels


by Bill DiFilippo / @bflip33

Milwaukee Bucks forward John Henson hasn’t played a game for his alma mater, the North Carolina Tar Heels, in more than two years.

However, the former two-time ACC Defensive Player of the Year took to the Internet to protest the suspension of Carolina guards P.J. Hairston and Leslie McDonald.

Henson Instagrammed a picture of himself wearing a shirt that depicted the NCAA logo. However, instead of the shirt saying “NCAA,” it read “SCAM.”

From Yahoo Sports:

Henson doesn’t specifically mention Hairston and McDonald in his post, but it’s a pretty safe bet he’s referencing the fact that neither wing has been allowed to play so far this season while the NCAA investigates whether they received impermissible benefits. In a pair of Nov. 21 tweets, Henson criticized the NCAA while addressing the Hairston and McDonald saga directly.

“Love how the NCAA picks and chooses which cases to drag their feet on … #TERRIBLE,” Henson wrote. “NCAA dangles kids’ collegiate careers over their heads with no sense of urgency .. #ItsGottaStop”

The duo have yet to see the court this season amidst concerns about their eligibility for allegedly receiving impermissible benefits.
