Projecting Tar Heels starting lineup, bench weapons


When you come within four points of winning the national championship and get four starters back, you might assume that Hubert Davis will head into 2022-23 hoping to just keep the good times rolling. But the North Carolina coach actually wants to do things a little differently even with a lot of the same faces back in the fold. North Carolina leaned heavily on its starting five, and that strategy really paid off in the magical NCAA Tournament run.

But Davis wonders if it might not be sustainable for a long, grueling season. He’s determined to let the rest of North Carolina’s talented roster show why they deserve a spot in an expanded rotation.

“I’m going to give everyone an opportunity 100 percent,” Davis said, via Inside Carolina. “Every day of practice, you have an opportunity to play, plain and simple, period, the end. But the players will determine the rotation. When we get into practice, whatever the rotation is, that’s what has been determined by the guys out there on the floor.”
