UNC Basketball: Theo Pinson named Mr. Basketball

It was just a week ago that University of North Carolina recruit Joel Berry was named Florida’s Mr. Basketball. Now another recruit for UNC’s impressive class can say the same thing for a different state.

The Charlotte Observer announced that Theo Pinson is the 2014 North Carolina Mr. Basketball. Pinson is the 8th UNC recruit to win the award. Isiah Hicks won it last year, giving the Tar Heels back-to-back awards for the first time ever.

The 6-foot-6 guard from High Point Wesleyan led his team to back-t0-back state titles and is a top 15 recruit in the country. Pinson is part of an impressive recruiting class from the Tar Heels that is ranked top 5 nationally.
