College Hoops Player of the Day for Friday, March 18, 2011
While there were many exceptional performances on Friday, the second full day of the Round of 64, it's hard to compare with effort of this trio of Tar Heels: Harrison Barnes, Tyler Zeller and John Henson, who accounted for 84 points in North Carolina's 102-84 win over Long Island.
Barnes scored 24 points and was only the third highest scorer for the Tar Heels, though he did chip in with 16 boards. Zeller led the way with 32 mostly-uncontested points and John Henson had 28, 20 in the first half.
The numbers were career highs in scoring for both Zeller and Henson, and Barnes set a personal mark for rebounds.
North Carolina moves on to face Washington in the Round of 32.
