GREENSBORO – Both Reggie Bullock and James Michael McAdoo are in some ways experiencing the NCAA Tournament for the first time this weekend in Greensboro.
Bullock, a sophomore guard, missed the postseason last year because of a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee. McAdoo, on the other hand, is a freshman.
McAdoo saw extended minutes in last week’s ACC Tournament because of John Henson’s left wrist injury. Now, the two anticipate they will be on the court at the same time in many stretches duringUNC’s second-round game against Vermont tomorrow night.
“This means a lot to me because I just observed last year, and I saw what that team needed,” said Bullock, who is averaging nine points and five rebounds a game. “I’m just trying to be a great defensive player who can make shots coming down the stretch.”
