UNC should be poised for another Final Four run with this guy coming back

UNC’s postseason success and Final Four run have sophomore point guard Joel Berry thirsting for more. Berry had a fantastic season and showed a vast improvement over his freshman campaign. He averaged almost 13 points a game while dishing out almost four assists a game as well. He shot 38 percent from beyond the arc and 44 percent overall from the floor.

That might have been good enough to get him some pre-draft buzz, but Berry’s dad confirmed that junior would stay in school and try to get back to the big stage. “We talked briefly about what he wanted to do and I always told him ‘Don’t rush the journey,’ Joel Berry Sr. said. “That had always been his plan (to return), even if he had a great season.”

Coach Roy Williams even praised him as the “most consistent player all year.” There were times he looked fantastic playing the point guard spot and he was exceptional during Marcus Paige’s time out with his hand injury. Hopefully the young man can make some more magic in his junior season.
