It was the one question everyone had about North Carolina men's basketball. It was also the one question UNC coach Matt Doherty would not answer.
Who's your starting point guard?
Doherty finally showed the world Friday night, when he sent freshman Adam Boone out for the opening tip against Winthrop in the first game of the NABC Classic.
However, the answer was not a definitive one. Boone also started against Tulsa, but Brian Morrison and Jonathan Holmes got significant playing time in each game.
"All three of us have done really well," Holmes said after UNC's 91-81 victory against Tulsa. "I think Adam and Brian and myself all bring a different flair to the game. All three of us have different strengths, and I think that hurts teams."
Morrison inflicted the most pain on Winthrop, coming off the bench for 14 points to tie for the team lead in scoring in his first college game. He connected on 3-of-4 3-point attempts and committed one turnover in 19 minutes, 26 seconds of court time.
He also excited the crowd, pushing the tempo constantly and driving the lane whenever he could. Morrison even got himself loose in the second half for a dunk attempt, which he missed.
"It felt really good," Morrison said of his first game. "It was really exciting."
Morrison was perhaps too excited against the Golden Hurricane on Saturday. Doherty pulled him just 2:15 into his second-half stint after Morrison took two bad shots.
