If North Carolina put together an NBA team featuring only former Tar Heels, the squad would be quite competitive.

They can still work out together in the offseason, though. That’s what former teammates Kendall Marshall, Harrison...

This Short UNC Basketball Hype Video Will Get Tar Heels Fans Ready For 2014

It’s undeniable that North Carolina basketball had a weird 2013-2014 season.
