Marcus Paige expected to play vs. No. 2 Maryland

  UNC's Marcus Paige is averaging 12.1 points per game this season.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. —— University of North Carolina senior guard Marcus Paige is expected to play Tuesday against the University of Maryland in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Paige has missed the Tar Heels’ first six games this season due to a fracture in his right hand, an injury he suffered in practice on November 3rd.

The Tar Heels won five of their first six games with Paige out of the lineup, dropping a 71-67 decision at Northern Iowa on Nov. 21, but winning the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City before the holiday.

Paige’s return is subject to his going through UNC’s practice later on Monday without aggravating the injury.
