DeQuan Jones Can Jump

Miami freshman DeQuan Jones displayed his athleticism Saturday night against North Carolina in Chapel Hill. He had a resounding block and a ridiculous reverse jam. Unfortunately for the Canes, North Carolina's offensive skill was on display in the second half. The Tar Heels scored 46 in the second half including 7 threes from previously quiet Wayne Ellington for the easy 82-65 victory. Miami hung around early and even had a 9 point lead that created some rumblings in the Dean Smith Center, but the Hurricanes showed as they have all year that they are just not polished enough to compete on the elite level in college basketball yet. Still an impressive dunk however and sure to be revisited as one of the best of this year. That's two unreal plays by Miami against Carolina in the last 4 months when you include this block that occured in their football contest, but as great as these are to watch, UNC won both games.
