  • Breakdown: Reggie Bullock

    February 22, 2013 at 2:35 pm

    Reggie Bullock has been Mr. Dependable all season long. He’s been the model of consistency, and his steadying influence is the major reason why the Tar Heels are still in the hunt for an NCAA tournament bid. Bullock was instrumental in keeping the team afloat while waiting on Roy Williams to put P.J. Hairston in […]

  • Breakdown: Marcus Paige

    Marcus Paige has really been thrown into the fire this season. With the early departure of Kendall Marshall to the NBA, Paige was asked to be the starting point guard at Carolina from day one. If that wasn’t a big enough task, he’s been forced to run the team with two of its best players […]

  • Breakdown: JP Tokoto

    J.P. Tokoto is another Tar Heel that needs more time on the court for Carolina to be at its best.

Tokoto has a Vince […]

    I remember being completely shocked when I heard talk of James McAdoo possibly being drafted in the top 10 of the 2012 NBA draft. Sure he filled in admirably in the absence of John Henson late last season, but a few solid performances hardly screamed NBA superstar. It would have been a disaster that most […]

    A few of Brice Johnson’s stat lines this season: UNLV: 6-8 FG, 12 points, 4 rebounds, 3 steals, 15 minutes (!) McNeese St: 5-10 FG, 10 points, 7 rebounds, steal, block, 14 minutes (!) UAB: 5-7 FG, 11 points, 6 rebounds, 2 blocks, 14 minutes (what if he played twice as much!) Brice Johnson brings […]

  • Breakdown: PJ Hairston

    January 7, 2013 at 11:33 am

    P.J. Hairston is the most indispensable player on the North Carolina Tar Heel basketball team.  First, take a minute and let that sink in. Now here’s why: Hairston brings a toughness and intensity to the Tar Heels that doesn’t exist when he’s not on the court. He’s one of only a couple guys on the […]
