Ginyard looking for his shot
Senior shooting guard Marcus Ginyard seemed more explosive during the Tar Heels' win at N.C. State on Tuesday, jumping more easily for rebounds and looking quicker (and less tired) running the court.
The next step in his comeback since missing three straight games with a sprained right ankle is hitting some shots. Ginyard finished 0-for-5 against the Wolfpack, meaning he's 6-for-25 in his last five games since he was sidelined. That's a huge dropoff from his first five games of the season, when he was 27-for-45. Then again, he wasn't trying to come back from a bruised left foot (which also sidelined him for a game) or a sprained ankle.
