Lucas: UNC Basketball Mailbag
Only two other Tar Heel teams have ever had four active 1,000-point scorers. The most recent was in 2005, when the eventual national champions included Rashad McCants, Jawad Williams, Raymond Felton and Sean May. The 2000-01 team also had four active players reach the milestone, as it included Jason Capel, Brendan Haywood, Kris Lang and Joseph Forte. This year's team will join that group very soon.
Lucas: No Doubt About It
There has never been a UNC player like Reyshawn Terry. It's a fan's compulsion to try and compare players. You know the drill--Brandan Wright reminds me of Sam Perkins. Wayne Ellington reminds me of Joseph Forte. But Terry is in his own category. Who else would make a mistake by throwing the ball to Wright 22 feet from the basket on a fast break and then turn around and nail a three-pointer at one of the game's biggest moments?
