    Sounds about right. The Leebs was taught by the Dean.

    I'm putting my money on the only time UNC can score is in the back of a bath house.

    Doubt that will happen. I do expect Lebo to have his team well prepare. Should be a decent game, with UNC probably winning by 15-18.

    If ecu beats Carolina in the nose dome.....wow

    Interesting stats: ECU points per game 79.1 rebounds 39.7 assists 17.1 fpg .457
    giving up 62 ppg. last game they won 111 to 59 (that's 52 points, kiddies).
    ECU's team is almost all experienced upperclassmen and UNC's next "cupcake" OR are they. UNC is giving up 66.8 ppg. Odds are UNC will win this home game but don't bet the house on it. UNC is scoring a whopping 4.3 ppg more than ECU but is giving up 4.8 ppg. UNC and ECU are fairly equal on paper. Really doesn't take much to go from 457 to 462. All in the way you look at it, I guess.

    None of them are currently top 5 and Kentucky is not even ranked. Louisville was without one of the nations best shot blockers.

    Dook shot 45% vs. Kentucky
    Dook shot 43% vs undermanned Louisville
    Dook shot 47% vs. Ohio State

    Not exactly gut busting numbers.

    Before the season started I was leaning toward believing that strickland and mcdonald would help this young team coming back....now i am wondering if it is just hindering the development of their young guys, i mean dex and leslie aint givin ya much.

    They've all known for three years, just let Dexter drive to the hole and he'll dribble it off his foot before he gets there.

  • seedofdoubt Dec 13, 2012

    Now that every team in the nation knows they don't need to guard Hubert and can put their third best defensive player on James, I would say no.

  • blueduke4 Dec 13, 2012

    Whoever posted the team stat percentages....cupcake stats will deflate drastically when REAL play starts....check your numbers in your two losses, those are closer to reality. Im sorry but east tennesse state is not a good barometer for judging your teams strengths and weaknesses.

    Have you compared their opponents?

    Duke has played and beaten three top-5 teams (or is it 4?) and still has a higher shooting percentage than the Holes.

    If Duke played UNC's schedule, they'd be at .980.
    And if UNC played Duke's, Roy would have run away by halftime of the Louisville game.

  • SteveR Dec 13, 2012

    Are they where I want them to be? No, but I still see a lot of potential in this team. They have the talent they just aren't playing consistently together yet. There is still time to grow into a great team this year.

    Currently:
    1st in the nation is assists
    5th in the nation in rebounds
    6th in the nation in ppg
    71st in the nation in fgp needs much improving, but like the post above me says it really doesn't take much to go from .462-.480.

  • DooksucksV3 Dec 13, 2012

    UNC shooting .462 on the season
    Dook shooting .480 on the season.

    Big difference.

    If you think the loss to the duke football team was a disaster, wait until the bb team plays Duke next year(2013).. Look for ol Roy to leave the floor with a least 5 minutes left on the clock.The Dean dump should be almost empty by the middle of the second half.

    Can North Carolina score consistently?
    This has been something I and other hoops writers on Twitter have wondered since the earliest part of the season, and right now the answer appears to be no.
    The Tar Heels have been living off offensive rebounds in the early part of the season. Their three poorest offensive performances -- in losses to Butler and Indiana and a win over East Tennessee State -- came in games in which the Heels grabbed 30 percent or fewer available offensive rebounds. Compounding their inability to score on initial possessions is their extremely low free throw rate. Right now, only two teams in the country get to the line with less frequency than the Heels (in terms of FTAs per FGA).
    They're shooting the 3 at a decent rate, but they're well below normal North Carolina standards in terms of 2-point field goal percentage, a byproduct of the lineup they're rolling with this season. They have a freshman point guard (Marcus Paige) who is still learning on the job and their main frontcourt scoring threat (James Michael McAdoo) is converting less than 50 percent of his 2-point attempts, a poor rate for an athletic frontcourt player.
    As inexperienced players settle into their roles, there may be some modest improvement, but preseason fears over a lopsided lineup with very little frontcourt pop and a rookie point guard seem to have been founded.
