Justin Jackson A Quiet Leader for UNC

The junior led UNC in scoring for the fourth consecutive game.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- There is no hiding Justin Jackson's scoring ability.

Leading North Carolina to a victory over Pittsburgh on Thursday night, Jackson's 20 points mark the fourth consecutive game scoring 20 or more. 

However, Jackson's contributions go further than the box score. After playing 38 minutes against the Panthers, Jackson said he knows coach Roy Williams and his team rely on him to be a consistent, reliable player in high-stress situations. 

From the sidelines his demeanor may look low-key, but teammate Joel Berry said Jackson is a constant leader and morale boost for the Tar Heels.
