McAdoo hit 6 of 9 from the floor for the Tar Heels, who started ACC play 1-4 and have not lost since.

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Virginia Tech

Good to see James Michael McAdoo come alive late in the game. After struggling early, the junior scored nine straight points late in the second half during a key stretch. Including in those four baskets were two aggressive, strong moves to the rim--one finished in a dunk and one finished in a virtual dunk. As always, McAdoo is at his best when he's using his athleticism. (

Basketball Q&A With Tar Heel Blog

If you ask Roy Williams he likes to talk about their "sense of urgency" which is code for playing with effort and intensity. Honestly it is really something different every game with the one notable consistent factor being the defense. UNC has played very well on the defensive end. (Gobbler Country)

Preview: #19 UNC at Virginia Tech

With a win in this game UNC locks up the #4 seed in the ACC Tournament and secures a bye until Friday of the tournament. On the NCAA Tournament side of things, this is a game UNC cannot lose since Virginia Tech's RPI would be a poison pill for the Tar Heels' seeding possibilities. Prediction: UNC 74 VT 64 (Tar Heel Blog)

Paige’s second-half efforts have been ‘Super’ for UNC

Fit him with a pair of horn-rimmed glasses and an old-school Fedora, and Marcus Paige could pass for an updated version of mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent. Good thing for the Tar Heels that the young point guard also does a pretty good imitation of Kent’s alter-ego, Superman. Instead of stepping out of a phone booth and into a red cape, Paige usually does his changeover at halftime (Wilmington Star News)
