Outside of a few errant shots, Bullock’s transition into the starting lineup was a smooth one. He finished with 11 points, five rebounds and three assists. In a somewhat surprising move, Williams used his bench on Thursday night as much as he had in any game this season.
Five reserves played at least five minutes, and Desmond Hubert played 13 minutes. It’s concerning that P.J. Hairston continues to struggle with his shot – he was 0-for-5 from 3-point range against N.C. State – but UNC still appeared to be surprisingly deep on Thursday night.
Freshman point guard Stilman White played just five minutes, but they allowed Kendall Marshall some valuable time to rest. Marshall played 34 minutes.
