Taylor’s Tuesday Top 25 And Tidbits, Top 10 Games To Watch

Since Roy Williams inserted PJ Hairston in the starting lineup North Carolina has played its best basketball. They fought for forty minutes in Cameron Indoor Stadium against one of the best teams in the country, and then imposed their will at home against Virginia. Most importantly, there was never a lapse in effort. Assuming that type of aggressive play continues tonight at Georgia Tech, and moving forward, the Tar Heels are a certainty to make the NCAA Tournament.

Why Did Roy Williams Wait To Start P.J. Hairston?

If there’s a reason he didn’t start P.J. Hairston earlier in the season, I hope it’s a good one. Hairston averaged 13.7 points per game in only 16.8 minutes over the nine ACC games he didn’t start. In the two games since he earned the starting job, he’s averaged 26 points and 7.5 rebounds per game, helping Carolina play its best basketball of the season—against Duke and Virginia, no less.
