I don't know that he will see the floor much, he is basically the same player that Johnson is.

I agree somewhat, but he seems to be more athletic and is obviously more bulkier than B.J. Unless Brice puts on weight, he might struggle; he's just not the player than Henson was. I'm actually really high on Hick's. I think he will be a solid two-way player.

Hicks will certainly have the opportunity to receive plenty of PT especially when we get down the stretch into ACC play.

Love the potential for our rotation this year.

If you look at both their strengths and weaknesses they are the same. Strengths: athleticism, and runs the floor well. Weaknesses: strength and post play. BJ is 6'9" 195 and Hicks is 6'8" 205.

They both have the same weaknesses, but I believe Hicks' aren't as prevalent as BJ's. Just from watching a few of his games it looks like he tries to find his game instead of looking for the game to come to him ala BJ.

Also Hicks doesn't have to be a scorer, especially if the Heels land Wiggins. If the ol' ball coach pulls a trick out of his hat then Hicks (if he starts) would be the last scoring option on the floor. I really like Hick's for his speed, agility, and defense. If he can hold Parker to 15 instead of 25, then the Heels are in business.

Don't be dumb. He will get a lot of playing time. You don't bring in this big of a recruit and sit him the whole season unless you are red shirting him, which they aren't. Also, Roy rotates his players in and out a lot so he and BJ will get a lot of PT.

A lot of playing time? Come on BJ was only on the court for 10 mins per game, I could see Hicks getting something like that but that is not what I consider a lot of PT.

Hicks will play and play often unless Roy wants to screw up half of a season again

UNC will either have to slow it down and play Meeks a bunch (not likely to start off with) or go smallish again and go with a lineup of

Paige, McDonald/Tokoto, Hairston, Hicks, McAdoo. If the Heels get Wiggins then they'll go with a bigger lineup because of Wiggins, but still smallish in the paint with Paige, Hariston, Wiggins, Hicks, McAdoo.
