    Gald to see that Roy is being pro-active by suggesting to the NCAA to sit Tokoto out a game......and of course they agree. Probably overkill but thats just Roy!

    [i] CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- North Carolina sophomore J.P. Tokoto, who sat out the "secret scrimmage" against Vanderbilt on Sunday, will miss the Nov. 1 exhibition game against UNC Pembroke for his unapproved participation in summer league games in Milwaukee.

    Tokoto will be available to play in the season opener Nov. 8 against Oakland.

    UNC coach Roy Williams is still unclear on how many games junior P.J. Hairston will miss. Williams also revealed Friday night that the NCAA will have a say on senior Leslie McDonald's status.

    Hairston was linked to convicted felon Haydn "Fats" Thomas after a June arrest for marijuana possession and driving without a license. Those charges were later dismissed, but Thomas reportedly rented the truck Hairston was driving at the time.

    McDonald's image was used to promote a brand of designer mouthpieces that prompted a cease-and-desist letter from the university to the company. McDonald could face discipline if it is determined he somehow benefited.

    "They're (the NCAA) going to be part of it, yeah. The rumors have been going around since June," Williams said. "We've been addressing those. It's the kind of thing where there (are) still things in process with P.J. and Leslie both."

    Williams said Tokoto played in a sanctioned league but failed to complete the necessary paperwork before competing in two games. Upon learning of his mistake, Williams said the correct forms were turned in and he was sanctioned to continue playing.
