    PJ is only UNC's best all around player IMHO. Not only is he pretty good on offense(all around FG%, FT%, 3pt%) but he is an outstanding defender willing to give up his body to make a play. Couple that with the ability to rebound well and his great size for his position, he helps UNC in almost every area of the game.

    Agreed.

    Roy stuck with LDII waaaaay to long. Teammates were raving on Marshall's floor game back in summer league.

    Hard-headedness (Roy's) has limited PJ's opportunities/minutes this season...and it shouldn't have taken this long into the season to rectify that.

    I didn't lose that fact. It's another example of how dumb UNC fans that were calling for Strickland to be benched can be.

    Lost in all of this is the fact that much maligned Dexter Strickand was 5-8 shooting, 4-4 FT's with 14 points.

    Roy has too much loyalty to his upperclassmen and it has been an issue with him for years. Plus, he hates to be told what to do by some dadbern fan who doesn't know what the dickens he is talking about.

    PJ is the best player on the team.

    Being a UNC fan I have been questioning the sanity of not starting Hariston for months now. He is the best all around player on the team, and personally I believe has the most love for the game. If Roy had started PJ from the start of the season I believe this year would of been different. Roy has shown 3 major problems this year. He started Strick instead of PJ, never uses time outs wisely like when they are down 15 or so points, and constantly rotates players which doesn't give the guys enough time to get into sink together. If Roy doesn't start PJ for now on I will seriously begin to question the mans sanity.

    I think the starting lineup the reset of the season will depend on the the opposition matchups.... View More

    Spot on. That lineup was perfect for a Kelly-less Duke team. In fact, I thought Roy's game plan was awesome yesterday. They had Duke out of sync for a big chunk of that game. They just couldn't help themselves out and build a decent lead when they had Duke on the ropes. The execution was off, but the game plan was great.
    Roy might not know exactly what starting lineup will be game to game, but I think it it safe to say that it will include PJ.
