North Carolina freshman point guard Cole Anthony (knee) out indefinitely

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- North Carolina star point guard Cole Anthony is out indefinitely with a right knee injury and did not play for the 17th-ranked Tar Heels in their 68-64 loss to unranked Wofford on Sunday.

Sophomore Leaky Black was also out for the game at Carmichael Arena, the program's first regular-season game in its former campus home since January 1986.

Treatment plans are being evaluated for Anthony, the second-leading scorer among freshmen nationally, who is averaging 19.1 points.

The versatile Black has started every game and has also served as the top backup behind Anthony at the point. He has been dealing with a sprained right foot that has limited him in recent games. The school says he is out "on a game-to-game basis."

North Carolina also announced that junior big man Sterling Manley had surgery Thursday to repair cartilage in his left knee and won't return this season. Manley has yet to play this year and missed 16 games last season because of knee soreness, leading to an offseason knee procedure.
