My whole point is UNC has no one to shoot the ball so you pack it in on their bigs and make them beat you from the outside. I will take my chances with Drew and Ginyard shooting the ball before I let Thompson, and Davis go wild on the inside.
ehh Carolina has never been a deadly 3 point shooting team.....sure they have had Ellington, Lawson(Who came on late as a shooter), McCants, and Felton(Again came on late as a shooter), and Green (Junior year)
The only true shooters Carolina has had over the past few years has been McCants and Ellington.....Some will say Green, but he was god awful at his outside shot until his Junior year, Felton really didn't hit his stride until his Junior year because he busted his ass at making the outside shot better, and Lawson who was a decent shooter his Sophmore year was much better his last season also
From what I have reserched the Wear twins, especially Travis Wear has an exceptional outside presence. Strickland I think will be a lot like Felton, he will have to really work on his shot, but could become better. Ginyard has actually become a lot more reliable as a shooter, but is still known for defense.
Carolina has ben more of a run you up and down and wear you out team(Defense and Transition points), then a 3 point threat anyways.......I still feel that style of ball will still put them in the top 15 and if players develop fast they could easily be a top 10 program this season and battling GT and Duke (Which I think minus Singler is a very overrated team, but you can never count them out because of Coach K) for the ACC crown.
