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.
