North Carolina Tar Heels prospects
It was a very disappointing season for the Tar Heels, but they still ended up making the tournament unlike fellow ACC blueblood Duke. That being said, they’ve got a few glaring issues. They’re lacking a true lead scorer, with nobody averaging more than 12.2 points per game. They’re shooting just 31.7 percent from three, and turn the ball over nearly 15 times per game. They’ve got a very interesting first round matchup against Wisconsin, that I can’t wait to see play out. They could very easily win that game, but I don’t see them with any chance of getting past Baylor in the Round of 32 with all their holes.
