A. . . Armando Bacot. Armando Bacot

I don't want to hear anyone say anything negative about Armando Bacot.

Sure, he's had some games where he wasn't as dominant as we've known him to be. But let's remember: this dude is one of the BEST big men to ever wear the Carolina Blue.

Bacot has even improved his game, as he's a much better rim protector and also seems to be in very good shape as well. His scoring average is down (in large part to the Tar Heels having proven scorers around him for once), but he is still a double-double machine that continues to be a major asset for the UNC basketball program.

The standards some people set for Bacot are extremely high (and probably not even attainable). That's what unfortunately comes with greatness sometimes.

Let's not look to deep into this: Armando Bacot is still having a very good season in what will be his final year as a Tar Heel.

Enjoy watching him as a Tar Heel while you still can.
