Odds and Ends

Mercifully the eight day break is almost over.

  • Noting current UNC commits, SI.com has a feature up on the Wear Twins(hat tip: Dan.) The skinny is these two do not fit the prototype big man we have traditionally seen at UNC but are “hybrid power forwards.”  That basically means they will be versatile and play all over the court which cannot possibly be a bad thing given the way Roy likes to run the break.  It is also a nice counter move to Duke who seems to be content putting versatile players on the floor instead of the traditional inside presence.  With the crop UNC has coming in the next two seasons along with current personnel they will have both.  Speaking of next season, Tyler Zeller had 47 points in a recent win and is leading the state of Indiana in scoring with a 34.3 ppg average.
  • Apparently Greg Little is enjoying basketball but it might be at the expense of his football conditioning.  According to the N&O Little loves being on the basketball team but because he is running with the team and not doing football related weight lifting his weight has dropped. Ideally needs to put on pounds and muscle to be adequately prepared to assume the starting tailback position on the football team.  Probably not too much to worry about here since he still has a good five months once he leaves the team in March for spring football to get himself into shape.  I just hope he does not injure himself either.
  • And while the eight day break was a bit daunting for us basketball junkies, it came at a good time since everyone was a little banged up from the opening ACC salvos.  Now UNC can lock in and focus on the rest of the season.

    Did anyone else feel like the lack of a game this weekend resulted in an additional 3 hours of free time (30 minute pregame, 2 hour game, 30 minute postgame)?

    When Carolina doesn’t play – that winds up being 3 more hours my wife talks to me. Let’s Go Heels!

    The Wear twins seem great. I am a little worried that unless we can get Zeller to bulk up, we’ll lack some big bodies down low. But I am thrilled at having “hybrid” power forwards. Do you think they would be along the lines of like Jawad Williams type of players?

    Love the comments from Taylor King, by the way. Wow. Reading what Marcus likes to have recruits do (watch two hours of Planet Earth on Discovery Channel), I’m glad that he hosted them and not someone else that might not have been into that kind of thing. Marcus is one unique dude.

    Planet Earth in HD is one of the most spectacular things that anyone can do with their time.
