Vince Carter’s transition to sixth man (of the year?) appears to be complete

Vince Carter has been on a serious sizzle of late. His points per minute are off the charts and he’s piled up some impressive overall numbers. He’s averaging 13.3 points over the last 15 games. And he’s shot a shade over 40-percent from 3-point range in February. So is it time to get his sixth-man-of-the-year campaign underway? (Dallas Morning News)

Leslie McDonald on Surviving 'The Foul'

While Marcus Paige’s driving game-winner with 0.9 seconds remaining in overtime elicited equal parts elation and agony, depending on your side of the aisle, the emotion of choice for Leslie McDonald was undoubtedly relief. “The call was the call,” McDonald said. “There’s nothing you can do about it. The refs felt like I fouled him, so there’s nothing you can do about it.” (Inside Carolina)

Art’s Angle: On Their Games

If Marcus Paige and Roy Williams aren’t ACC Player and Coach of the Year, someone needs to demand a recount. Paige solidified the fact that he is not only the most valuable and most important player on his team in Wednesday night’s amazing win at N.C. State, but he is arguably the best player in the entire ACC and now needs to be favored for the Cousy Award as the top point guard in the college game. (

Video: The Marcus Paige vs T.J. Warren Shootout

Out Of The Blue: J.P. Tokoto

One of the first things people think about you when they hear your name is your jumping ability. When you were growing up was that something that you worked on or did it just come naturally to you? J.P. Tokoto: "It's just a God-given gift. The first time I dunked was actually at the end of sixth grade, and I had just previously started playing basketball." (

Giving A Hoots For Tar Heel Hoops

Rising through the ranks to an important position can still be achieved, as Eric Hoots can attest. Hoots, the Assistant to the Athletic Director for Men’s Basketball and Director of Player Development for the UNC men’s basketball team, served as the Tar Heels varsity manager a decade ago (when he roomed with now-UNCG-coach Wes Miller).

Tar Heels no longer just frontrunners

While getting accustomed to “Second-Half Marcus,” North Carolina is getting comfortable becoming a second-half team. Before the Tar Heels' current 10-game win streak, they were frontrunners. If they led or were tied at halftime, they won the game. If they trailed, they lost. It happened every time. Now the Heels have won their past three games when faced with a halftime deficit. (

Marcus Paige Is College Basketball's Newest Little Bada**

UNC has now won 10 games in a row, and the 18 points and five assists per game Paige has put up during that stretch is a big reason why. UNC fans are just happy the team is winning, but the rest of us can be glad to have finally found a little guy that can make us gasp. (Deadspin)

Harrison Barnes motivated by trade rumors

With the knowledge that other NBA teams were the ones initiating trade proposals, Harrison Barnes used it as motivation since it reflected how much better he could have been playing. This month, he improved by averaging 10.3 points and 4.4 rebounds off the bench, shooting 42.9 percent from the field and 50 percent from 3-point range. (San Jose Mercury News)

J.P. Tokoto sets stage for Marcus Paige in matchup against N.C. State

Before Marcus Paige could pull the curtain closed on T.J. Warren’s convincing audition for ACC Player of the Year, J.P. Tokoto was there to set up the lighting for Paige’s spectacular finish. But Tokoto nearly missed the grand finale. Tokoto, who scored 16 points in No. 19 UNC’s 85-84 win, spent the last several minutes of overtime in the locker room with cramping. (Daily Tar Heel)
