UConn G Ben Gordon versus North Carolina G Rashad McCants
Saturday, Jan. 17, 3:30 p.m. at Chapel Hill
McCants can be a little too temperamental, and Gordon is sometimes too deferential, but both can score points in a hurry. Gordon, a 6'3" junior, is shooting 50.0% from three-point range (50.8% overall), and his 19.4 points a game were fourth in the Big East through Sunday. McCants, a 6'4" sophomore, has been in and out of Roy Williams's doghouse this season (he was benched for most of the final 13 minutes of the Tar Heels' 61-56 loss to Kentucky on Jan. 3), but he is still leading the team in scoring (17.2 points a game).
