Brice Johnson:  Hot

In this six game stretch, Brice Johnson is averaging 14.5 points (2.3 points above his season average), and the past three games is averaging 18 points a game – shooting an average of 83% from the floor.  Not to mention, he is being super productive on the glass as well.

Brice Johnson has played the role as the team’s x-factor.  To compete with teams that arguably outmatch them, the Heels need Johnson to be playing his best basketball.  Marcus Paige will answer the bell, and Kennedy Meeks has proven that he produces consistently; it all ultimately ends with Johnson.
