Hubert Davis and the UNC basketball program are off to a great start in ACC play, as they've won each of their first three conference matchups.

After handling Florida State in early December, the Tar Heels have kicked off the 2024 calendar year with road victories over Pittsburgh and Clemson.

The Tar Heels have faced a very tough schedule thus far this season, and to no surprise, it doesn't get easier over the next few weeks. This team is certainly battle tested, as the tough non-conference slate, combined with a challenging road stretch to begin the new year, should really help this squad as they look to be the last team standing at the end of the season.

In order to reach the goals this team has in place, they are going to need some guys to be consistent contributors. Here are three players who are primed to level up throughout the rest of conference play.
