GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Count UNC sophomore Harrison Barnes as a little surprised -- in a definite tongue-in-cheek sort of way way -- that freshmen teammates Stilman White and James Michael McAdoo made Cosmopolitan’s online list of “The Hottest Guys of March Madness 2012.”
And that he got the shaft.
“I feel like I have a fresh face, but that’s all right,’’ UNC’s leading scorer deadpanned Thursday. “They don’t see the inner beauty.”
Then he laughed.
White, a freshman reserve, told The Burlington Times-News that he had gotten plenty of ribbing by his teammates for making the list, but he also saw the bright side: “I guess it never hurts to have girls think that about you,’’ he said.
White came in at No. 2 on the slideshow; McAdoo was No. 24 -- but joked that he deserved to be ranked higher.
"They might’ve robbed me, man,’’ McAdoo told The Times-News. “But I’m Top 25, so I’ll take it."
UNC senior Tyler Zeller, by the way, failed to make the list -- although little bro Cody (a freshman at Indiana) did.
