High-scoring White ready for shot at UNC point guard role

WILSON, N.C. (AP) No one questions whether Coby White is good enough to help North Carolina immediately as a freshman.

Rather, the pressing question as White heads to campus this week is this: can the instate McDonald's All-American who scored more points than any high school player in state history help the Tar Heels replace departed point guard Joel Berry II?

"I want to play. Who doesn't want to play?" White said in an interview with The Associated Press. "But I know it's going to take a lot to learn the offense and defense of North Carolina. ... I feel like I'm a quick learner and I have a high IQ for the game. Basketball is just reads to me. I think I always make the correct read.
