By MIKE McCURRY UNC swingman Theo Pinson is expected to make his season debut on Saturday against NC State, according to Tar Heels head coach Roy Williams.
Pinson, who was projected to start this year after averaging 4.5 points, 3.2 boards, and 2.9 assists in nearly 19 minutes per game last season, has been out since undergoing surgery on his broken right foot in October. A Swiss Army knife of sorts, the 6-foot-6 junior should provide an immediate boost to No. 14 UNC both as a facilitator and perimeter defender.
