The UNC basketball program enters the 2022-23 season as the No. 1 team in the AP poll and that is in large part due to the players returning from a National Title runner-up team in 2022.
The Tar Heels bring back four starters and add in one of the top transfers on the market in Pete Nance as well.
Already this offseason and preseason, numerous honors and awards have been given to the Tar Heels’ players — including numerous All-American nods
Once again, another analyst put together his preseason awards and All-Conference teams for the ACC. Terrence Oglesby of the Field of 68 Network listed three Tar Heels on his preseason All-ACC teams.
Bacot, an All-American heading into this year, is returning after averaging 16.3 points and 13.1 rebounds per game last year. Love, on the All-ACC First-Team, averaged 15.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game a year ago.
For RJ Davis, he comes in as one of the more underrated players in the country despite a terrific sophomore campaign. He averaged 13.5 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game last year. He rose up to 14.7 points, 6.5 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game in the NCAA Tournament.
All three players look to be three of the better players in the ACC as well as the country.
