Pinson could bolster Tar Heels' perimeter defense

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) Theo Pinson knows how to guarantee himself a significant role as a freshman at North Carolina - play defense.

The 6-foot-6 swingman arrived this summer to help fill the Tar Heels' need for backcourt depth and bolster UNC's defense on the perimeter, where opponents blistered the Tar Heels in last season's final two games.

"You just have to worry about making the right play and playing defense at all times," Pinson said. "That's Basketball 101, basically."
