The answer seems obvious: Anthony.

Video: Rechon Black Explains How He Got His Nickname "Leaky"

Inside Carolina's Ross Martin recently visited 2018 North Carolina basketball signee Rechon Black at Cox Mill High School in Concord, NC and prompted Black to explain how he got his nickname "Leaky."

The Story Behind UNC's Recruitment of Keion Brooks

Roy Williams didn't take long to throw out a coveted North Carolina scholarship offer after he watched 6-8 Keion Brooks. The versatile and active forward from Fort Wayne, Indiana has been tearing up the Nike EYBL circuit this spring and is one of the leading bucket-getters in the junior class. Tar Heel Illustrated spoke to Brooks' father about how the Tar Heels got involved.

Nassir Little will wow NBA personnel

Who said North Carolina can’t produce one-and-done talent? Nassir Little has the chance to become the highest draft selection out of UNC since Harrison Barnes, just as he is the first top-five prospect to commit to the Tar Heels since the Iowa native did in the fall of 2009. Little will wow NBA personnel as he was last measured at 6-foot-6 with a 7-foot-1 wingspan.

Five players to watch at Nike EYBL Hampton

Headed into the fourth and final Nike EYBL session in Hampton, Va., we’ve zeroed in on five players you’ll want to keep tabs on over the weekend. Point guard Cole Anthony, the top-ranked player in USA Today Sports’ Chosen 25 for 2019, has been the most productive player in the Nike EYBL all spring, averaging 25.6 points, 7.2 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game.

Video: Wendell Moore Discusses His Recruitment

5-star small forward Wendell Moore (UNC offer) updates his recruitment, discussing his five finalists: UNC, NC State, Duke, Wake Forest, and South Carolina. Moore also talks about his recent in-home visits and mentions the two official visits he's already lined up.

Rechon Black Eager to Make Impact in Chapel Hill

With several weeks to go until he enrolls at North Carolina, Rechon Black was clear that his focus is the point guard position, emphasizing what UNC coach Roy Williams has told him. The 6-foot-8 signee was not this tall when he committed to UNC in January 2016. Even with the extra inches, point guard is the preferred position once he gets to Chapel Hill.

Coby White Gets High School Jersey Retired

During his senior season at Greenfield School (Wilson, NC), UNC combo guard signee Coby White scored 1,056 points, averaging more than 30 points per game while netting 10.3 rebounds and 9.1 assists per game. Those points gave him 3,573 points in his career, which set the North Carolina state record. On Monday, White’s No. 0 was retired by Greenfield School.

Keion Brooks will have his pick of schools as UNC, Kentucky, Kansas get involved

Keion Brooks' recruitment has blown up. He’s had the entire Midwest on him hard for a couple years, but recently some of the bluebloods like North Carolina, Kansas, and Kentucky have joined the mix. “They are North Carolina. It’s a historic program. I like the way Coach (Hubert) Davis and Coach (Roy) Williams are going out of their way to build a relationship.”

Coby White and His College Position

Can Coby White be UNC's point guard? Even White was conflicted with the answer. The 6-foot-4 Tar Heel signee is considered by most scouts to be a combo guard (he is ranked the No. 3 combo guard and No. 23 overall recruit in the 247Sports Composite). He played mostly point guard in high school and has been highly effective with the ball in his hands as a scorer.

Wendell Moore Discusses Recruitment

Wendell Moore on UNC and his relationship with Roy Williams and Steve Robinson: "I talk to them a lot. They are constantly calling me and checking to see how I’m doing, something I can do better and what I’m doing good at. I like how he’s coaching me already even before I (make) a commitment to anybody yet. He’s still trying to get out there and coach me."

Coby White Scores Game-High 41 Points at Josh Level Classic

Saturday, some of the state's top high school basketball players gathered in Greensboro for the annual Josh Level all-star classic. The star was UNC signee Coby White, the two-time N.C. Gatorade player of the year. White, also the state's all-time leading scorer, had 41 points and was named MVP (Highlights). The game honors Level, who died five years ago of myocarditis.
