Season in Review: Nate Britt

Nate Britt is a perfect example of what makes UNC's players and the system great. The former four-star recruit could be getting more minutes and exposure at another school, but Britt has bought in and played a key role on the 2015-2016 North Carolina Final Four squad. The depth and insurance he provided Carolina last season was critical. (Carolina Blue)

Lucas: Series To See

Yesterday's announcement that UNC will travel to Indiana in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge means the welcome renewal of a solid nonconference rivalry. The Tar Heels and Hoosiers should play occasionally--it's an interesting matchup of two of college basketball's powerhouse programs, they don't play so frequently that it's gotten old, and they have a lengthy history together.

Season in Review: Joel James

Joel James wasn't a star, but he provided UNC with energy and enthusiasm on (known for some awesome celebrations) and off the bench. He was the type of player every team needed. A positive force and a high level player for Brice Johnson, Kennedy Meeks, and Isaiah Hicks to go against in practice. It didn't hurt that his size was rare to find on most college courts.

Raptors superfan eats 17-year-old box of Vince Carter cereal

The toughest UNC basketball losses in the last 10 years

Being a Tar Heel fan has its perks, but it also has its setbacks. While many of North Carolina's basketball seasons end in impressive tournament runs or even national championships, they're sometimes disrupted by embarrassing losses throughout the season. Luckily for the Heels, these losses often have the ability to propel them to success. (Carolina Blue)

Season in Review: Brice Johnson

Brice Johnson was named MVP of the NCAA Tournament's East Region and a consensus All-American. Near the end of the 2015-2016 season, UNC coach Roy Williams began to call Johnson one of the best rebounders he's ever coached. Johnson's superior leaping ability made him a vacuum cleaner on defense and led to easy baskets on offense. (Carolina Blue)

Season in Review: Marcus Paige

Marcus Paige sat out the first six games with a hand injury before making his much-anticipated return in December for UNC's game against Maryland. The senior's final season did not live up to statistical expectations, but his impact on UNC's team did not show up in the box scores. Paige is one of the greatest leaders in UNC basketball history. (Carolina Blue)

The trip to Chapel Hill will be a homecoming for Rice, who played point guard for the Tar Heels under legendary coach Dean Smith from 1987-91. (Asbury Park Press)

Power Ranking Every ACC College Basketball Head Coach in 2016-17

2. Roy Williams, North Carolina In literally any other conference, Roy Williams would be No. 1.
