Brice Johnson does something vs. FSU no UNC player has done since 1976

Marcus Paige is arguably the most important player on North Carolina’s basketball team, but there is no longer any doubt who its best player is.

Brice Johnson continued his All-American-worthy campaign on Monday night, dominating Florida State in Tallahassee to the tune of 39 points, 23 rebounds, three steals and three blocks on 14-of-16 shooting from the field in the Tar Heels’ 106-90 win. It was the first 30-point, 20-rebound game for a UNC player since 1976 (Mitch Kupchak).

Johnson did everything for North Carolina on both ends of the floor. He threw down a vicious alley-oop early over 7-3 center Boris Bojanovsky.
