Paige: Try not to think about injury

Marcus Paige scored 20 points in his season debut and said after of playing with a still-healing broken hand: "I just try to lose myself in the game and not think about it. Think about what I can do to help the team."

Heels top Terps in Big Ten/ACC Challenge

Terps won't let Tar Heels pull away

Isaiah Hicks hits the jumper just before the shot clock expires to give No. 9 UNC an 87-76 lead late in the second half on ESPN. But No. 2 Maryland has rattled off five quick points to pull within 6.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Part of Marcus Paige's aggressiveness offensively came because the Tar Heels needed him. But don't underestimate Joel Berry's role in it. Berry's solid play at point (12 pts 4 ast) allows Paige to play off the ball and hunt for his shot more than he would if he had to play point.


Tar Heels off and running on ESPN

UNC's Joel Berry II hits the 3-pointer to give the Tar Heels an 83-74 lead on a 9-2 run late in the second half. The Terps won't go away though as they look to rally on the road.
