NCAA Tournament 2013: James Michael McAdoo, Reggie Bullock have off days


North Carolina's best players couldn't figure out the Jayhawks, which hurts their status as NBA draft prospects.

North Carolina's potential NBA players had some pretty ugly games in a 70-58 loss to top-seeded Kansas, shooting poorly from the field as the Jayhawks stymied North Carolina's offense all day long. Here's a player-by-player look at how UNC's talent performed Saturday:

James Michael McAdoo: McAdoo is a likely first-rounder, but he continued to show that his offensive game is a long way from the NBA level. With Jeff WIthey patrolling the paint, the 6'9 power forward shot just 5-for-19 with 11 points. He's got a freakish wingspan and upside as a defender, but McAdoo has little semblance of a jump shot and his post game is capable of having days like he did today. Now, McAdoo has to consider whether to stay in college another year. He's a first-round pick if he leaves now just on his size, but if his offensive game really is a work in progress and has room to grow, maybe another year in Chapel Hill would be a good idea.

Reggie Bullock: Bullock also had a bit of an iffy outing, going just 1-for-7 and 1-for-4 from beyond the arc. It's not killer for the likely second-round pick -- he shot 44 percent from beyond the arc this year -- and if he can keep those shooting numbers up and continue to be a reasonably effective option doing other things with the ball at the small forward spot, he'll make it as a backup in the NBA. Bullock also has a decision to make, but probably should stay in school.

P.J. Hairston: It's not a good sign that Hairston's 15 points on 17 shots was the best outing of any UNC prospect, but he's a player that's really made an impact on his stock of late. He's shown the ability to get hot -- five threes vs. Florida State and six vs. Miami in the ACC Tournament, then five more in the team's first-round game against Villanova -- and although he didn't do that Sunday, he hit three of his nine attempts from deep. Nine boards was a nice addition from the 6'5 two-guard. He's a fringe first-rounder -- more likely a second-rounder -- but if he keeps his strong end-of-year play up as a junior next year, his stock should increase quite a bit.
