    Still have hopes for Marshall to make a surge about mid-season when he gets rid of the layoff rust. Did he seem to be running/jumping well on that repaired foot?

    Looks like they're getting primed for another early flameout in Durm.

    Makes us grin.

    Deflection is UNC fans greatest tool. Can't you see grown folks are having a conversation, your momma must not have taught you any manners, poor child.

    Yeah me too, Dawkins seems like such a great kid. He was the last player to leave Cameron, after staying at least 15-20min to sign autographs. Class act

    I probably didn't give Dawkins enough love in that first post. He looks like a changed player. ... View More

    Again, great information. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I have always been a big fan of Dawkins. I guess his personal struggles have a lot to do with that. I would love to see him contribute and be a great sixth man. I agree that Sheed should start over him. Its nice to see we have many options this year.

    My biggest takeaways are 1) Jabari Parker is the best player in college basketball, 2) we are maybe the most athletic team Coach K has ever had, and 3) Dawkins is back.

    I probably didn't give Dawkins enough love in that first post. He looks like a changed player. His body is leaner and more defined than 2 years ago, and it showed in his quickness. His defense looked like it has improved drastically as well. I think Sheed ends up starting, but I would bet that Dawkins will still play 20min/game. Either in 3-guard sets, or as the SF with Parker/Hood as the big men. Dawkins looks like the player we always hoped he would be. The jumper is still true, but he's quicker and better defensively (which was his achilles heel in 2011.)

    I have much less doubt about our post-defense and rebounding situation after seeing the boys practice. Jabari has the size of a college center (6'9" 245) with the strength and athleticism to match. He also has a keen sense for rebounding. Amile Jefferson is light years stronger than he was last year and it showed as well. He grabbed boards left and right, also altering and blocking shots along the way. Marshall will be an x-factor, but as of right now its tough to think he'll play more than maybe 10min/game. The bigs rotation will be Parker/Amile/Hairston with MP3 or even Hood as the 4th rotating player.
