MARCUS PAIGE RUMORS & GOSSIP

NC State-North Carolina Preview

Marcus Paige isn't having the type of season most expected when he was selected as a preseason All-American, but big men Brice Johnson and Kennedy Meeks have provided steady efforts to help make up for Paige's dropped production.

UNC basketball: Observations from Monday

North Carolina seemed to finally break out offensively in their win against Syracuse Monday night, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Carolina will play Louisville, Virginia, and Duke in 3 out of their next 5 games and will need to have their offense clicking if they have any chance at winning. Luckily, Roy Williams had a better game plan today and showed more creativity...

UNC basketball: Box score analysis from Sunday

The Tar Heels beat the Hokies 68-53 on Sunday, but that 15 point difference doesn’t tell the whole story. Fans who watched the game know the Heels looked sloppy to say the least, with Marcus Paige once again causing concern. With that being said, let’s look at the box score!

North Carolina needed a “Paige-turner”

Like any good novel...

Marcus Paige’s Sister Posts Heartfelt Message About Her Brother After UNC’s Loss

The North Carolina Tar Heels, like many of their ACC colleagues, won’t be marching onto the Sweet 16 this season after falling to Iowa State in an absolutely incredible game Sunday afternoon. But it’s not for the lack of effort by sophomore guard Marcus Paige. Paige, who more than doubled his scoring average this past season, repeatedly put the team on his back during a year...

UNC basketball: Tar Heels caught streaking

After a 1-4 start to conference play and sole possession of last place, the North Carolina Tar Heels’ men’s basketball team currently holds a four-game winning streak and are right back in the thick of things in the ACC.

UNC basketball: What’s next for the Heels
