The North Carolina Tar Heels won the ACC regular-season title last year, earning a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Their season ultimately ended in disappointment when they lost to No. 4 seed Alabama in the Sweet 16, but their fan base has plenty of reasons to be optimistic about the North Carolina basketball roster. They return star guard RJ Davis, the ACC Player of the Year and first Tar Heel to win the Jerry West Award as the top shooting guard in the country. He averaged 21.2 points per game and knocked down nearly 40% of his 3-point attempts.

Davis will be tasked with helping the North Carolina basketball lineup overcome the loss of veteran big man Armando Bacot, but the Tar Heels have received help from the college basketball transfer portal. Head coach Hubert Davis is still rounding out the North Carolina basketball team, but North Carolina is considered one of the national title-contenders regardless.

North Carolina basketball roster departures 

Of the departures from North Carolina’s roster, Armando Bacot might be felt the most. The 6-foot-11 forward/center averaged 14.5 points and 10.3 rebounds in his final season with the team and became the third player in school history to record 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds. It remains unclear what Bacot’s future holds, but it is clear his size and contributions will be missed.

Another big departure for the Tar Heels is Harrison Ingram, who might have returned for another season but has instead declared for the 2024 NBA Draft. Ingram transferred to UNC prior to last season and averaged 12.2 points and 8.8 rebounds per game during his 2023-24 campaign. Join Inside Carolina to see the latest on all of North Carolina’s roster changes

North Carolina basketball news, roster

North Carolina is still searching for a few key additions from the transfer portal, as the coaching staff has been unable to find a replacement for Bacot thus far. However, they did land Belmont transfer Cade Tyson, who averaged 16.2 points and 5.9 rebounds per game last season. Tyson averaged double figures as a freshman as well, so he was one of the most coveted players in the portal.

The Tar Heels are also bringing in a top-10 recruiting class, even though it only features three players. Shooting guard Ian Jackson and small forward Drake Powell are both five-star players, while center James Brown rounds out the class as a three-star recruit. With several important players returning from last year’s team, North Carolina has already assembled a strong roster. Join Inside Carolina to get the latest on all of North Carolina’s roster additions
