Marcus Paige has been out with a broken bone in his (non-shooting) right hand since early November, but North Carolina's star point guard should be back on the court in a week.
That's very good news for the Tar Heels, who are set to take on No. 2 Maryland at the Dean Dome in Chapel Hill, North Carolina one week from tonight.
Paige told reporters last night he's "confident" he'll be back in time to face the Terps.
