Game Thread: UNC-Texas

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

North Carolina vs Texas, 7:00 PM, ESPN2

The return of Leslie McDonald.

It is probably a safe assumption he plays at some point but given he's not up to game speed it probably won't be much. McDonald will benefit this team in a lot of ways. He is another three point shooter who can hopefully improve some of his 36% shooting from beyond the arc last season and do it against quality teams. McDonald also hit 79.5% of his free throws last season which means should UNC end up in a close game, McDonald will be on the court instead of J.P. Tokoto. Most importantly, Paige in particular needs to see fewer minutes because 35 mpg is way too much at this stage of the season. McDonald will help with that over the next few games.
