ICTV: Nate Britt's Long-Range Impact

Nate Britt can be an even more valuable contributor to the 2015-16 Tar Heels from beyond the arc.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. --- Nate Britt spent his offseason assessing how he can better help this North Carolina team.

He enters the 2015-16 season with experience as both a starter and reserve, and coming off a sophomore season that saw his three-point shot steadily improve.

After a freshman season in which his long-range shot was a non-factor, Britt hit 36.6% of his threes a year ago, and his percentage climbed as the season progressed.

Britt thinks there is more room for growth as an outside shooter.

"That's one of the things that our team has been lacking the last two seasons and we depended on Marcus to do that," he said. "Me being able to knock down some shots last year was an improvement and me being able to do that more and increase the percentage will help us a lot."

The junior guard - whose free throw percentage a year ago (88.2%) was second best in school history -  views how both he and the team handle late game situations will enable surpassing last season's success.

That means minmizing turnovers in clutch moments, better defending dribble penetration, and maintaining overall poise. And the improvement will be rooted in experience.

"We have a lot more experience this year," he said. "We have a veteran team. That can give us confidence. We've been there."
