The people booed J.P. Tokoto while he walked off the court but he said he didnt hear it. There were about four minutes remaining in North Carolinas eventual 81-79 victory against N.C. State on Wednesday night and Tokoto, the Tar Heels junior forward, absorbed the hate in stride.
Thats fine, Tokoto said later, smiling. I dont want them to like me. I want them to hate me. I made it tough on their star player. I didnt even notice the boos.
The Tar Heels win will be remembered for another fine performance from Marcus Paige, who scored a season-high 23 points and finished with nine assists and zero turnovers. It will be remembered for the Wolfpacks late rally that fell short.
