UNC PG Marcus Paige posts message after breaking hand


The No. 1 North Carolina Tar Heels suffered a key loss yesterday when starting point guard and senior Marcus Paige suffered a broken hand that is expected to keep him out for at least a few weeks, but he has remained positive despite being put on the shelf for the time being.

On his personal Twitter page, Paige sent out an encouraging message to the fans.

A former four-star recruit out of Iowa’s Linn-Mar High School, near Cedar Rapids, Paige averaged 14.1 points and 4.5 assists per game last season, shooting 41 percent from the field and 39.5 percent from long range.

With his injury, while most of the games he’ll miss are relative cupcake games for the Tar Heels, he could also end up missing UNC’s important December 2 game against former ACC rival and potential No. 2 team Maryland.

The good thing is that the team is good enough outside of Paige that it should be able to hold it down until Paige gets back, but a key loss is still a key loss.

UNC opens the season in Annapolis against the AAC’s Temple Owls.
