The long and exhausting recruiting drama that has followed Andrew Wiggins is finally over!
Wiggins held a private ceremony where he signed his National Letter of Intent to play and attend the University of Kansas!

There is still loads of talent and potential on this team that could easily make a deep run in the tournament.

North Carolina Tar Heel basketball thrives off of experience from returning players year after year.
In 2005, senior Sean May and junior Raymond Felton led the Tar Heels to a national championship. In 2009, Roy Williams won his second banner with the help of three seniors and three juniors.
In the 2012-13 NBA draft, North Carolina saw four players selected in the first round, all of which returned from the previous year.
This upcoming season is no different.
Of all the places you’d expect to see Marcus Paige, the Iowa Conference baseball tournament was not among them. Yet there was the North Carolina point guard Friday, at Veterans Memorial Stadium to root on some of his old Linn-Mar High School buddies.
“I’ve got four days off here, then it’s school, it’s summer school,” Paige said. “It’s nice to see friends and family again.”
