Ross' Rapid Reactions: UNC vs. Chattanooga

This team can run. UNC had 19 transition points against Chattanooga and played their best when forcing turnovers and getting out for easy baskets. It helps to have Isaiah Hicks and Justin Jackson on the court. Both players are 6-8 or above and excellent in running the floor and scoring in transition. Tony Bradley has also shown a knack for getting out in transition. (Carolina Blue)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - UNC vs. Chattanooga

Congratulations to Kennedy Meeks on passing the 1,000 point mark, and a great way to do it in a game when he had 14 points and 12 rebounds (and also had three blocks). Meeks was more efficient from the field than he was in the opener, but just as active on the backboards. Meeks is the 73rd player in Carolina history to surpass the 1,000-point mark. (GoHeels.com)

No. 6 UNC defeats Chattanooga 97-57 in home opener

One of UNC’s big question marks coming into the season was who would step up on the glass. Today, Kennedy Meeks delivered. Meeks had 12 rebounds and 14 points for his first double-double of the season. Freshman Tony Bradley impressed for the Tar Heels with 12 points and eight rebounds. Bradley’s explosiveness is a good sign for the Tar Heels. (Daily Tar Heel)

Know Your Opponent: Chattanooga

Let's get one thing out of the way. Chattanooga is good. Not cute-mid-major-with-one-good-player-hanging-around-for-20-minutes good. More like future-NCAA-first-round-nightmare-that-can-absolutely-beat-you good. The Mocs, who beat Georgia, Illinois and Dayton away from home last year, opened 2016-17 with a rousing 82-69 win at Tennessee on Friday. (GoHeels.com)

UNC enters 2016-17 season with experience on their side

North Carolina won't start any five-star freshman or sophomores. Their roster isn't stacked with future first round NBA draft picks. You want see any of their players on preseason First Team All-American lists (though Joel Berry might find himself on one by the end of the year). What the Tar Heels do have is old school experience. (Carolina Blue)

Lineup options aplenty for Tar Heels

Expect to see an array of combinations and lineup changes for sixth-ranked North Carolina when the Tar Heels play their home opener today against Chattanooga.
