UNC Basketball: Former Tar Heel Coby White sets NBA rookie record

Former University of North Carolina standout and current Chicago Bulls point guard Coby White is already making his presence felt in the NBA. Just 12 games into his rookie campaign, the 19-year-old point guard has broken team and league records.

Against the New York Knicks last Tuesday, White became the first player in Bulls history to hit six three-pointers in a single quarter. And he added a seventh for good measure. In all, White knocked down 7-of-11 attempts from long-range en route to scoring a game-high 27 points in just 27 minutes of play off the Chicago bench.
