Post NBA Decisions — ACC Basketball Rankings, Part 2: A Cut Above

No. 1 North Carolina: This looks like a classic Roy Williams team: Loaded with a mix of veteran stars and gifted incoming rookies. Expectations are high in Chapel Hill — as they should be; this is a title-contending team. With Luke Maye, Cameron Johnson and Kenny Williams back — plus Sterling Manley and Garrison Brooks — UNC has an embarrassment of riches. (ACC Sports Journal)

College basketball's winners and losers after players' final NBA Draft decisions

6. North Carolina - This was the expected endgame for this offseason, but UNC deserves a mention. Cam Johnson and Luke Maye could combine to average more than 35 points if all clicks.

UNC will be deep around the perimeter, with Kenny Williams, Luke Maye, Cameron Johnson, Brandon Robinson, and Andrew Platek all returning.

Forget San Antonio - will the Triangle make it to Minneapolis next season?

Good news: The Tar Heels could return their second, third and fourth-leading scorers from a year ago in Luke Maye, Cameron Johnson (undecided) and Kenny Williams. All three will be seniors, and all three are tested and experienced. The freshman bigs that forced Roy Williams to go to a smaller lineup will be a year older, and under Williams, that's been a good thing. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Kenny Williams soaks up spotlight in NCAA Tournament return

Kenny Williams knew this would be his moment. He told his North Carolina teammates as much before Friday's game against Lipscomb, the junior's first NCAA Tournament game on the active roster since sitting out the second half of the 2016-17 season with a knee injury. He played sparingly in the tournament two years ago, but he didn't record a single shot attempt. (Argyle Report)
