Marcus Paige Stands Up for Academics, on Twitter
The ever outspoken Doug Gottlieb of CBS tweeted, "How Many UNC basketball players would get into UNC? #None". The post got the attention of Sophomore point guard Marcus Paige. He responded by tweeting, "Raises Hand".
The comment prompted Gottlieb to make a slight change in his previous tweet, "I stand partially corrected RT @marcuspaige5: *Raises hand* RT @GottliebShow: How Many UNC basketball players would get into UNC? #atleastone"
Clearly Marcus Paige understands the importance of academics and student athletes, tweeting, "Wasn't trying to show anyone up I just was saying there are some D1 athletes that value education. I'm done now lol".
It is good to see student athletes who not only take pride in the achievements on the court, but in the classroom as well.
