Evaluation: I’m not sure it was possible for North Carolina head coach Roy Williams to find a better replacement for Kendall Marshall than Paige. Paige is a guy who does an unbelievable job of anticipating when his teammates will get open and he does an even better job getting them the ball. He has great court vision and is an intelligent player. In addition to creating opportunities for his teammates, he’s able to score himself, too. He has a smooth shooting stroke that extends to the three-point line and is very good in the mid-range game. One thing he can improve on is his strength.
