With the quarterback competition being a major topic, does the fact that you chose Marquise to (represent UNC at the ACC Kickoff), speak to how he’s handled things?

Jamie Cherry, UNC’s only incoming women's hoops freshman, ready to step in

North Carolina incoming freshman Jamie Cherry burnished her reputation as a scorer with a game-high 24 points in the N.C. Coaches Association East-West All-Star game in Greensboro Coliseum on Monday. But she plans to change her mindset when she plays for the Tar Heels this season. “I’m just trying to be a point guard,” Cherry said. “If it comes to scoring and the (opposing) team plays me like they want me to shoot or whatever, then I’ll have to step up.” (Durham Herald-Sun)

Tar Heels’ Williams ready to lead offense

Marquise Williams is ready to run the offense from the start this fall. “You can’t be in a playful manner. You have to take everything serious. When you are at practice, it has to be like a game,” Williams said. Williams, now a junior, admitted he wasn’t much of a practice player in high school at Mallard Creek. It took him until he got to Chapel Hill for him to realize what he needs to do to be a leader. (New Bern Sun Journal)
