UNC Basketball: The Hole Reggie Bullock Leaves Behind

Reggie Bullock is set to begin a new journey in his life by entering the NBA Draft. While I was hoping he would return, I’m glad he has goal set and that he has a motive behind it all. He has a family to support, and he wants to look out for them in the best way possible!

However, that doesn’t mean he won’t leave a hole for the Tar Heels to have to fill when the basketball team takes the court again this fall.

Reggie’s biggest asset was his offense and his ability to shoot the three point shot. Of course he was slightly out-shined by PJ Hairston at the conclusion of the season, he provided much needed offensive game that the Tar Heels lacked early on in the season.

He also contributed and assisted James Michael McAdoo in the rebounds department. He averaged 6.5 rebounds per game, which lands him second on the team rankings behind McAdoo.

We all know Bullock was an offensive monster, but he deserves some credit for his solid defensive.

Virginia Tech easily could have beat us at home in regulation, but Bullock forced a horrible last shot on Erick Green. That game alone proves that Bullock was one of the best hands-on, on-ball defenders in college hoops.

Don’t get too worried! With Hairston and McAdoo returning, some of those gaps are filled, and Kennedy Meeks may bring on some good on-ball defense!
