UNC coach Roy Williams knows a thing or two about point guards and junior Nate Britt (Washington, D.C./Gonzaga) will be the next in a long line of dynamic Tar Heels floor generals. Kendall Marshall is at Chapel Hill now, ESPNU 100 PG Marcus Paige (Marion, Iowa/Linn-Mar) is signed on for next year and Britt is waiting in the wings.

Whether or not Paige is still there when he arrives, Britt will thrive. Together, the duo of Paige and Britt will work well because neither has to have the ball in their hands. In fact, Paige can slide over and play the off guard, which he often played for his AAU team, while Iowa signee Mike Gesell played the point.

If Paige is gone, Britt can definitely run the show right away for the Tar Heels. He is a battle-tested floor general who competes in the WCAC, one of the most difficult leagues in the nation. The left-hander can beat opponents by scoring big numbers or impact the game by finding his teammates, pushing the tempo and defending.
