UNC's turnovers and Barnes' shooting are quickly becoming problems

North Carolina basketball has committed 73 turnovers in the last four games, including 18 turnovers in a 79-67 loss at Illinois Tuesday night.

Also troubling is the free throw shooting. UNC missed nine of 17 foul shots.

Harrison Barnes, the heralded rookie, was taunted by Illinois fan as being "overrated." He hit only two of nine shots. UNC coach Roy Williams said Barnes hasn't found his niche yet, isn't playing smoothly and needs to move better without the ball.

Williams said the Tar Heels need to do a better job of getting the ball to Barnes while guard Kendall Marshall said that the Tar Heels are getting the ball to Barnes too far away from the basket.

Carolina is now 4-3 on the season - that's already a third of the number of losses that Barnes had in four years of high school ball.
