UNC scouts sophomore

UNC assistant Fred Quartlebaum was in Virginia last night watching star sophomore Marquie Cooke, the 6-3 sophomore from Suffolk (Va.) Nansemond River High School, reports IC Insider Zeke Martins.

Cooke is averaging about 19 points, seven rebounds and five assists this year. He visited Chapel Hill in October, sitting courtside for Midnight with the Heels.

"He is going to be one of the most sought after point guards in his class (of 2004)," according to IC's Clint Jackson.

Cooke is one of the featured stars at this Saturday's Super Slamfest in Richmond, Va. For more on the big event, check out Jackson's preview at ACCToday.
