UNC Basketball: 2015-16 Projected Starting Lineup

7 of 7

PG: Nate Britt
SG: J.P. Tokoto
SF: Isaiah Hicks
PF: Brice Johnson
C: Kennedy Meeks

That is really big lineup, with 6’5” Tokoto playing shooting guard. There is no shooting at all on the floor, but the defense would be solid. This lineup probably won’t be used much.

PG: Joel Berry
SG: Malik Newman
SF: Theo Pinson
PF: Justin Jackson
C: Stephen Zimmerman

The underclassmen lineup shades really small-ball. 6’7” Justin Jackson would be a bit of a stretch at the “4”, but Zimmerman would provide rim protection and UNC would run opponents out of the gym with all the shooting and speed on the wings.

PG: Berry
SG: Jackson
SF: Pinson
PF: Johnson
C: Meeks

Five creators and scorers all out on the floor together. Not a bad lineup at all, and not too far away from the projected starting lineup. Jackson and Pinson are interchangeable at SG and SF.

PG: Britt
SG: Tokoto
SF: Jackson
PF: Zimmerman
C: Joel James

Hello, Joel James! James provides the girth for the defensive lineup, featuring tough point guard Britt, the Heel’s best defender in Tokoto and Zimmerman in for post defense.
