North Carolina

3 Heels in double figures in exhibition win

Posted August 16, 2014

UNC's Isaiah Hicks and James Michael McAdoo during practice Thursday, March 20, 2014 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio.

Sophomore forward Isaiah Hicks led three Tar Heels in double figures with 19 points and the University of North Carolina shot 61 percent from the floor in a 109-52 win over the Bahamas All-Stars in a men’s basketball exhibition game on Saturday.

Freshman Justin Jackson and senior Desmond Hubert added 16 and 12 points, respectively, for the Tar Heels, who split a pair of exhibition games in the Summer of Thunder Tournament played in Nassau.

Eight different Tar Heels scored seven or more points. Hicks was 8 of 14 from the floor, Hubert made all six of his field goal attempts and Jackson shot 7 for 9.

Carolina got off to a fast start by making its first six shots from the floor and led 14-10 before going on a 16-0 run that quickly extended the lead to 20 points. Six different Tar Heels scored in the 16-point run. Hubert and Hicks each had four points in that stretch.

The Tar Heels led 32-12 after one period and 50-20 at halftime. UNC made 15 of 19 shots from the floor in the first quarter (.789) and was 23 of 38 (.605) in the opening half.

Forward J.P. Tokoto scored eight points and Marcus Paige and Brice Johnson each scored six in the opening quarter.

Carolina out-scored the All-Stars, 18-8, in the second quarter. Hicks scored nine of his 13 first-half points in the stanza and Jackson added seven.

“Our guys knew we played poorly yesterday and they came out with much better focus,” says UNC head coach Roy Williams. “We didn’t finish last night the way we wanted to, but today we were much more in tune with what we wanted to do. We were much better defending on the ball, were more unselfish with the ball and our shots went in the basket, which was also a product of better passing.”

Johnson, who was limited to just seven minutes on Friday night due to a sprained ankle, started and played seven early minutes but did not play in the second half for precautionary reasons.

Carolina, which went 3 for 25 from the FIBA-length three-point line in Friday’s loss to the Providence Storm, connected on 7 of 13 from beyond the stripe today. Paige was 3 for 3, and freshmen Joel Berry, Theo Pinson, Jackson and senior Luke Davis each made one.

UNC had a tremendous size advantage and out-rebounded the All-Stars, 53-19. The All-Stars shot 30 percent from the floor on 21 of 70 shooting. Abel Joseph scored 16 and Dionte Smith added 12 to lead the All-Stars in scoring.

The Tar Heels return to Chapel Hill on Monday and begin classes on Tuesday. The 2014-15 season begins with “Late Night with Roy” on Friday, October 3.

    I think Coach Williams needs to have a free throw shooting clinic that lasts 24 hours. When I played high school ball the coach had us run wind sprints every time we missed free throws. Kind of crazy since free throw shooting comes from lift in the legs and wind sprints made the legs tired. I ran more than my share of wind sprints! But getting back to UNC's FT woes; they have been horrible at the charity strip for many years. That's one area where teams want to be 80% or better since other teams will be fouling frequently at the end of games. Come on Heels, gotta do better than 50%.

    IC has the full box score. It may require premium access to see though.

    Thanks, heels. I went to goheels.com and they had the exact same info as the article here. I'll give IC a try, but you're probably right about the premium access.

    I am a Duke fan, but Hicks is from my hometown. I cheered him all last season, and it looks like he will be the Man this year. Good luck.

    One thing that was left out was free throw shooting. I wanted to see the stats on that since they struggled so bad at it against providence.
