UNC Basketball Signee Says Duke Cannot Spell His Name

CHATHAM, VA (WGHP) — UNC basketball signee P.J. Hairston, who is ranked the number 13 senior in the country, announced over the weekend that he will attend the University of North Carolina.

The 6-foot-4 guard forward said he decided to choose UNC over Duke in part because Duke has repeatedly misspelled his name, according to the 'Greensboro News & Record'.

"The thing about Duke was, every time they sent me a letter, they wouldn't spell my name right," Hairston said, in the paper. "They would have 'T.J. Harrison' or something like that. And I'm like, 'OK. How can I go here? You can't even spell my name right.' It's only two letters and HAIR and STON. I'm trying to figure out how that's so hard."
