The North Carolina Tar Heels, like many of their ACC colleagues, won’t be marching onto the Sweet 16 this season after falling to Iowa State in an absolutely incredible game Sunday afternoon. But it’s not for the lack of effort by sophomore guard Marcus Paige. Paige, who more than doubled his scoring average this past season, repeatedly put the team on his back during a year filled with turmoil.
Monday morning, Paige’s older sister, Morgan, posted a heartfelt message about her brother to Twitter. It’s sure to make UNC fans choke up just a little bit.
You can’t find a prouder sister. @marcuspaige5 represents everything I want to be someday.

The elder Paige is also a collegiate basketball player – she starts at guard for the Wisconsin Badgers.
Her message serves as a friendly reminder that wins and losses aren’t all that count – not even during the NCAA Tournament.
