    Actually, his sister died in Dec 2009, right before his 2009-10 team won the National Title as a freshman. Last year was his junior year and his minutes and production were never even discussed since he wasn't much of a factor in his sophomore year either. When it was announced over the summer that he was stepping away from the team because of his sister, it was a surprise to everyone since the death of his sister happened in his freshman year and he was about to enter his senior year.

    Even during the 2010-11 season after Dawkins scored over 20 against FSU followed by a couple 0 point performances, Coach K commented that he didn't know what was going on with Dawkins but no mention of grieving the death of his sister or any other excuse was made.

    And any sane person recognizes this as a valid reason.

    I'm afraid that if Dex doesn't learn to play more under control, he will reinjure his knee before mid-season. Every time I can remember when he was out on the break, he tried to outrun everyone to the rim rather than looking for a passing option. He was successful quite a bit doing it that way, but it sure put him at risk launching himself into the air at breakneck speed. Guess that's okay if you know how to land gracefully.

    I've stated since last season that UNC still has loads of talent. The guys that were hurt are going to show some people some great things. Duke will also be strong with an improved defense. Duke is always going to win a bunch. State has some solid experience + some strong freshmen. Never count out FSU and Miami. These two teams are well coached. State will have a tough challenge to live up to pre-season expectations.

    Another one being overlooked is PJ Hairston. PJ lost two relatives just a few weeks apart last season and his game took a nosedive. He will be much much better this season.

    wmarti, that's my feeling too. That's why I think and what Roy has said, I'm more apprehensive about the success of this team. JMM is a talent, and he'll continue to improve and probably will be UNC's best player. Back to he point guard position. Marshall was a freshman, but he had time to learn the position behind LD. He wasn't forced into taking over the position right away. He also had some problems with his feet, stress fractures I think. There could be a problem with his not having enought time to learn the players or the offense and defense. I go back to Strickland and his injury and the fact that he's not a natural point guard. I guess Carolina has someone on the blue squad that can fill in, if needed. I would like to have seen Roy recruit another point guard along with Paige. The fact that he didn't or wasn't able to worries me some. I'm optimistic about the team, but like you cautious.
