Lots of players contribute for Carolina in a rout of Hofstra

North Carolina had 10 players who played 13 minutes or more in the game against Hofstra in Puerto Rico during the Tar Heels' 107-63 victory. Even more impressive was that the most minutes anyone played was 25 - by Harrison Barnes and Tyler Zeller.

Barnes is getting all the attention nationally but this is shaping up to be a pretty deep Carolina team - even if the Heels were only playing Hofstra.

For instance, bench players contributed greatly. Kendall Marshall dished out a team-high nine assists while Leslie McDonald scored 16 and Justin Watts scored 13. In addition, transfer Justin Knox had eight points and eight rebounds in 17 minutes of play.

Barnes led the way with 19 points, all in the first half, while John Henson scored 12 and Zeller and Dexter Strickland tallied 11 each. Point guards Larry Drew II and Marshall combined for 15 assists and just three turnovers.
