Sports Illustrated UNC Basketball Preview

If Justin Jackson can improve his long-range efficiency, he will instantly become UNC’s most complete scoring threat. He made 300 to 400 shots daily during the summer, taking care to repeat his motion and to put more arc on his shot.

Sports Illustrated Top 20 Preseason College Basketball Poll

No. 6 North Carolina: The 2015–16 Tar Heels ranked 268th nationally in three-point shooting (32.7%) and still won the ACC regular-season and tournament titles, then reached the NCAA final.
