Since Larry Drew transferred, the Heels are 9-1, with the only loss coming at the hands of Duke. They are on fire as of late and Marshall looks amazing. But, Drew looked really bad before he transferred. I can't tell which has been the bigger impact. Marshall stepping up or Drew leaving. What do you guys think?

A little bit of both IMO

A little bit of both IMO because UNC has some great scorers( who Marshall feeds very well) and Kendall Marshall does exactly what Roy Williams wants him to do in terms of running the offense and delivering spot on passes while moving well without the ball and helping with UNC's spacing- something they had issues with earlier this season. He may not be as quick or as good of an athlete asd Drew, but he is clearly the better player with a much higher i.q. and clearly knows his role. Drew plays out of control too much and you can make the argument he would have been a nice change of pace of the bench I guess, but I think they are a better team without him entirely.

Marshall is just that good.

Marshall is just that good. Drew would have helped as a back up though

F*ck Drew he is a b*tch for

F*ck Drew he is a b*tch for quitting during the season.

In the words most FAMOUS/CLASSIC words of Sidra from Love & Basketball..........

Evidently Drew did not get the memo.

His mom and dad made him quit because he lost his starting job.

Roy Williams reffered to

Roy Williams reffered to Tywon Lawson as the best "Floor General" he had ever coached. I think when All is said and done, You'll be hearing the same type of praise for Marshall. I was high on this kid coming into the season and remain high. It's no coincidence that Barnes finally began to live up to HIS OWN pre season hype when Kendall was given the show. And now look at Barnes, beginning to hear talk of him as going number one STILL once all is said and done. He's just like a shorter version of Shaun Livingston. He's not blessed with the raw potential that Livingston once had, but his overall feel for the game and ability to make those around him better is very similar. The issue for Marshall is that the athleticism he has is similar to what Livingston's is NOW. Still, I see a quality player who if he stays and develops can only get better and could end up have a very decent career similar to way Andre Miller or Jose Calderon have.

"His mom and dad made him quit because he lost his starting job"

I guess that makes them b*tches too because their name is Drew also.

You would've thought with

You would've thought with Drew's quickness and passing ability, he would've developed into a good player for UNC sooner or later. He didn't really though, largely because he's not a very good shooter and he was a bit erratic as a playmaker off the bounce. Marshall has special passing skills, possibly the best pure passer in the nation already as a Fr. He's going to be SCARY next year too. Marshall's ability to run the offense has made UNC that much better, and he's not nearly as tentative as Drew was. Marshall has quarterbacked UNC, and he's the main reason they became the team they did down the stretch.

^^^

Exactly why I think he will eventually held in the highest regard by Roy Williams the way Ty Lawson did.

UNC has been a sleeping giant

UNC has been a sleeping giant throughout the season. If you look at their roster, they have top recruits from top to bottom, they just didn't play to their capabilities early in the season. Now everyone is playing well at the right time.
