Positive Sign For UNC's McAdoo
For just the second time this season against a Division I opponent, North Carolina forward James Michael McAdoo shot above .500 from the floor. Let me say that again- the 6'9", 230 pound forward for the Tar Heels of North Carolina has just two games making more than half of his field-goal attempts this year, with the latest success coming against Virginia Tech in an overtime victory.
And in McAdoo's mark of accuracy, he scored 22 points, the most for the future pro since opening night. So was this McAdoo's best career-game?
Scouts we've spoken with think so. However, they are still concerned with McAdoo's inability to score from the low post, and instead settling for too many jump shots. And until he demonstrates an aggressiveness in scoring closer to the rim, a true skill of lottery-pick power forwards, rather than handling the ball on the perimeter and taking mid-range jumpers, than McAdoo will be considered a mid-to-late first round pick.
