Dexter Strickland doesn't seem to mind that all the attention goes to his touted North Carolina teammates. The sophomore knows the Tar Heels will have a tough time winning in the NCAA tournament without him.
Tyler Zeller scored 25 points while freshman Harrison Barnes had 21 to help No. 19 North Carolina beat Maryland 87-76 on Sunday night, pulling the Tar Heels into a tie with Duke atop the Atlantic Coast Conference.
"We're two hours away and we know we have a lot of fans here supporting us," guard Dexter Strickland said. "So the intensity of the crowd will help us get more intensity and play with a better sense of urgency."
Strickland said the knee feels fine right now and he hasn't decided if he'll have surgery after the season.
