CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) Marcus Paige had targeted his return from a broken right hand in time to play in No. 9 North Carolina's matchup with No. 2 Maryland in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

It appears the preseason Atlantic Coast Conference co-player of the year is right on schedule.

The school issued a news release Monday announcing that the senior guard is expected to take the court for the first time this season on Tuesday night. That depended on him making it through a practice later in the afternoon without any setbacks, though both Paige and coach Roy Williams sounded confident that Paige would be ready.
