There is no question that Marcus Paige was one of this past season's most improved players in college basketball.
He went from being a middle-of-the-road first-year point guard to Carolina's leading scorer. Paige doubled his points-per-game average, going from 8.2 PPG as a freshman to 17.5 PPG as a sophomore.
Even though his scoring production went through the roof, Paige still led the Tar Heels in assists (4.2 APG) and maintained a strong (2.0) assists-to-turnover ratio.
When UNC needed a big shot this year, Paige almost always had the ball in his hand and was ready to deliver.
ESPN's Jeff Goodman listed (subscription required) Paige as a first-team "most likely All-American" for the upcoming season.
With Berry's arrival, Paige should be freed up to focus on slicing up and shooting over opposing defenses.
