Freshman Paolo Banchero will play and start against Gardner-Webb, David Thompson of The Fayetteville Observer first reported Tuesday evening.
Banchero and Michael Savarino are both facing DWI-related charges after Savarino was arrested at 1:10 a.m. Sunday morning. Savarino was driving Banchero's 2017 white Jeep and Banchero was in the back seat of the car when a North Carolina Highway Patrol officer pulled Savarino over for a stop sign violation.
At the time of publishing, it was unclear if Savarino would be in uniform, although he was not a participant in team warmups.
