Hitting To All Fields: Heels Make “STATE”ment To Wolfpack, Wake Upsets #2 Miami, Danica Lives Up To Daytona Hype
Epic win for UNC over N.C. State in Chapel Hill…The Dean Dome crowd was rocking big time for the Heels 76-65 “STATE”ment over the Pack. Hats off to Reggie Bullock who was on fire, hitting 5 out of 12 from three point range with 22 points and 13 rebounds. Freshman Marcus Paige outplayed one of the best point guards in America: Lorenzo Brown with eight assists and ZERO turnovers…the highly touted McDonald’s All-American finally played as advertised coming out of Marion, Iowa.
I know. I criticized Roy last week for keeping P.J. Hairston buried on the bench for far too long. I stand by that. But I also know that, in his place, I would have started P.J. Hairston instead of Dexter Strickland. And that would have been the wrong call. Starting him alongside Strickland, in a small lineup, has been the spark the Tar Heels desperately needed. Since then, they’ve won three out of four and played their best basketball of the year. For that, I give Roy credit.
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.

So without further adieu here is my mail-blog.
