UNC Basketball: Two North Carolina commits named to All-Star game

A pair of UNC basketball commits have been named to the 2020 Allen Iverson Roundball Classic.

On Monday night, rosters for the 2020 Allen Iverson Roundball Classic were announced, and a pair of North Carolina commits were named among the 27 players selected.

Caleb Love and R.J. Davis, two of the Tar Heels’ five-man recruiting class for 2020, will represent North Carolina at this year’s event. It begins with a dunk contest, three-point shootout, 1-on-1 matchups and more on Wednesday, April 22, and concludes with the All-Star game on Friday, April 24.

Love, who’s ranked No. 17 in the ESPN 100 and 18th in the 247Sports Composite, is the Tar Heels’ heir apparent at point guard. Once Cole Anthony’s time in Chapel Hill is done, it’s Love who will take over the reins in the UNC back court. The 6-foot-3, 170-pound guard out of St. Louis, Missouri has great size, athleticism and scoring ability. He’ll have plenty of weapons at his disposal next season, and help shore up a UNC back court that has struggled with injury and inconsistency through its first 22 games this season.

Davis, the No. 39 player in the ESPN 100 and No. 53 in the 247Sports Composite, has been showing a tremendous amount of offensive firepower at Archbishop Stepinac this season. His upside is incredible, and he, along with Love, gives the Tar Heels a ton of star-power and depth in North Carolina’s back court. Last week, he put up a 38-point, 11-rebound, 10-assist, triple-double in a 97-59 victory over conference rival Archbishop Molloy. He’s averaging 27.6 points, 7.8 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 2.3 steals per game this season.
