History Shows Importance Of Experience

The return of players with double-digit minute experience seems to help, as the 2008 team is the 12th Carolina team since 1984 to return six or more. Two of the previous 11 won the national championship (1993 and 2005). However, just one other team reached a Final Four (1995). The 1984, 1986, 1989, 1994, 2001 and 2007 teams were all widely considered top-ten teams throughout the regular season, but all had disappointing early exits from the NCAA Tournament.
