UNC reserve Kenny Williams III recovering from knee surgery

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina reserve Kenny Williams III is recovering from knee surgery.

The school said in a news release that the freshman had surgery Thursday at UNC Hospitals to repair torn meniscus in his right knee.

Williams played in 30 games in largely spot duty. The Midlothian, Virginia native is expected to miss 6-8 weeks of basketball activity, but should be fully recovered ahead of preseason practice.
