When sophomore guard Seventh Woods was injured in December, Roy Williams made a move to bring up senior guard Kane Ma. Ma had spent his career at UNC on the JV team, but Williams used him to fill the hole left by Woods. "I had the biggest smile on my face," Ma said.

Quick Hitters – UNC vs Duke
Great to see Seventh Woods return, getting on the court for three minutes. It will take him time to get back into game shape, but with Jalek Felton’s suspension, any minutes Woods can spell Joel Berry in this three-games-in-five-days gauntlet will be important. Theo Pinson guarded Marvin Bagley and did as good a job as one can do on him, “limiting” him to 15 points. (Armchair All-Americans

Three Things Learned vs NC State
Seventh Woods’ injury is the fork in the road and has likely messed up the rotations that Roy Williams would have used in terms of players off the bench. With Woods, Kenny Williams likely gets more rest as Joel Berry or Jalek Felton plays as a two, Felton isn’t responsible for nearly as much of the offense, Cam Johnson didn’t have to get rushed back as quickly, and so forth.
