Hubert Davis provides injury update for UNC basketball program

The North Carolina men’s basketball program cranked up the season with an exhibition blowout win over Johnson C. Smith despite being down four significant players.

Those four players are forwards Puff Johnson, Justin Mckoy, Jalen Washington, and starting guard RJ Davis. The excellent news is that UNC will not be without these players for long, with all four of them expected to be back for the season opener in under 10 days.

UNC opens the season as the team to beat with their number one overall ranking. They are looking to repeat an appearance at the national championship game with just a different outcome.
