A nice look at UNC's 2019 basketball recruits.
Congratulations to Dante Calabria, who is now a college basketball head coach.
Former UNC guard Nate Britt is playing basketball in Scotland with the Glasgow Rocks, and he's just landed himself a corporate sponsorship.

A win today over NC State would be great, but let's hope the team doesn't party like UNC's "High Noon Society" in 1974 or get busted reveling in the South Building like students did 160 years ago.
