CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham said Wednesday the school is gathering information on potential improper conduct by members of the men's basketball team a month after the drug arrest of leading scorer P.J. Hairston.

Cunningham's statement didn't name any player specifically. But the AD did say he and coach Roy Williams ``will support the appropriate disciplinary measures'' for any player if warranted at the completion of the university's investigation.

``We take these matters very seriously and are looking into these reports and the inferences they contain with all due diligence,'' Cunningham said. ``It is my practice not to comment on the individuals involved or the details surrounding these reports until we have sufficient understanding of the facts involved. We are still gathering information, learning information from other sources, and we will not comment until we have a strong grasp of each individual situation.''

The school started gathering information after Hairston was arrested June 5 during a license checkpoint in Durham. Hairston and two passengers were each charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession. Officers also seized a 9mm handgun and ammunition during the stop, with Durham police spokeswoman Kammie Michael saying the pistol was found on the ground outside the rental vehicle during the search. Police haven't linked the gun to Hairston or his passengers.

All three are scheduled for an August court hearing.

Hairston was driving a rented vehicle linked to a convicted felon facing pending drug charges at the time of the arrest.

Cunningham said the school is working to ``bring these matters to resolution as soon as possible.''
