Point guard confusion escalates for Tar Heels

Through nine games, a frank assessment must conclude that Marcus Paige has fallen short. He’ll have at least 20 more games to improve, but Dexter Strickland clearly has performed better in his backup point guard role than Paige has as starter. Strickland has doled out more assists and committed fewer turnovers. He’s a vastly superior defensive player and has shot an overall higher percentage than Paige. (Independent Weekly)
