Lucas: Rapid Reactions - UNC vs. Monmouth

UNC got an ugly 102-74 win in a game that had pretty much everything, none of it attractive. Justin Jackson was as hot as he's ever been in the first half, tossing in five effortless three-pointers in the first 14 minutes. But what you love about Jackson is he never hunted his shot even when he was hot, trying to find teammates the next two offensive possessions. (GoHeels.com)
