2016 NBA Draft Watch List: Brice Johnson

Brice Johnson has been an intriguing prospect since he got to Chapel Hill, and his development so far has matched most expectations. Johnson has the ability to be a threat from the perimeter, but he has limited his shots to 10 to 12-feet in. Extending his shooting range will be important for the next level, as will be continuing to build his body and add strength. (Hoops Habit)

Video: Vince Carter’s top 50 UNC dunks

Vince Carter might be the greatest in-game dunker of all-time, and that ability didn’t just happen to show up when he reached the NBA. The dude was ridiculous in college as well. I mean, for starters, he had enough dunks in his three seasons in college to put together a top 50 list. That’s impressive, but not quite as impressive as some of the dunks in that top 50.

The practice plan for day two of Carolina basketball’s preseason conditioning began with a simple thought for the day printed atop the conditioning schedule, one that’s likely to be repeated often by Roy Williams and the Tar Heel coaching staff over the next few months: “What can I do to make our team stronger and tougher this year?” (

Ranking the ACC Basketball Coaches for 2015-16

4. Roy Williams, North Carolina: Why he’s ranked here: Legacy. Williams’ two titles and Hall of Fame status can’t be denied, but the last three years (75-33) have been trying. With a veteran team, the Tar Heels are built for a Final Four run in 2015-16. It would be their first since 2008 and perhaps their last for a while. (Athlon Sports)
