UNC’s Marcus Paige’s game winning block vs Notre Dame (Video)

It’s not often you see a clutch block.

North Carolina’s Marcus Paige pulled it off tonight tonight in front of the home crowd against Notre Dame. With the Tar Heels holding on to a two point lead, Paige swatted Eric Atkins’ shot to seal the game.

People around the country are really starting to take notice of Paige and he had a game winning layup last week and is now getting it done on the defensive end. North Carolina remains one of the hottest teams in the country at just the right time.
