CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina says senior guard Marcus Paige is expected to return from a right hand injury for Tuesday night's game against No. 2 Maryland in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

The school issued a news release Monday announcing Paige's likely return for the No. 9 Tar Heels, though Paige still had to practice later in the afternoon without a setback.

The preseason Atlantic Coast Conference co-player of the year hasn't played this season after breaking a bone in his non-shooting hand on Nov. 3. He was expected to miss three to four weeks, so his potential return comes right on schedule.
