Sylvia Hatchell's son finds his way to Smith Center floor as JV player

Wednesday, December 12, 2007

Van Hatchell, the little boy who wore a Carolina blue arm cast during his mother's national championship-winning game in 1994, is now wearing a Carolina blue jersey -- as an 18-year-old freshman on UNC's JV team. An All-State basketball selection at Durham's Cresset Christian Academy, the 6-foot-3 guard had several scholarship offers from small Division I schools, but instead opted to roll the dice and try out at Carolina.
