North Carolina to the Big Easy or Bust

North Carolina to the Big Easy or Bust

North Carolina Tar Heels’ basketball team will once again challenge for a national title. The starting five is stacked to say the least. Duke Blue Devils may have something say about how the Tar Heels will do in the ACC. Other than those two teams, the ACC is not basketball conference it once was.

Harrison Barnes has started to live up to the hype he received out of high school. Fans should expect Barnes have monster sophomore season. Barnes will not be the only player that will play an intricate part to the Tar Heels’ success. Tyler Zeller, John Henson, James McAdoo, and the point guard play of Kendall Marshall will have North Carolina looking to finish in New Orleans, Louisiana.

It is never too early to start thinking about College Basketball especially when fans can find College Basketball tickets for sale.

The outside shooting of the Heels hurt them last season and it is unfortunate the Tar Heels loss Leslie McDonald for season with an ACL injury. McDonald would have helped with the outside shooting the 2011-2012 season. Barnes hit shots from distance and the former Kinston High School standout, Reggie Bullock should help North Carolina from the outside. Bullock had his freshman season cut short due to a knee injury but people have to remember he can score.

If North Carolina can avoid the slow start they had last season and if Harrison Barnes play consistently great basketball, Carolina will be a problem for every team that feel they actually can challenge for an ACC title. With such a talented team, North Carolina should think of making it to the Big Easy or Bust.
