UNC's Brice Johnson Channeling Intensity

Brice Johnson has gained maturity during his UNC career, which has allowed him to better keep his emotions in check.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- It's no secret that Brice Johnson is an emotional player. His highs and lows on the court are evident through his expressions and demeanor. And sometimes his emotions have gotten in the way of his effectiveness.

But in Friday's press conference leading up to UNC's matchup against Syracuse, Johnson said he feels he's growing up, as he is more able to channel his intensity and energy.

His recent run of big outings, culminating in the 39-point, 23-rebound performance against Florida State, speaks volumes. Now he says aims to prove that statement further with more consistent showings.
