TSN - UNC preseason No. 21

The Sporting News ranks North Carolina No. 21 in their preseason rankings.

Forte is the only player in UNC's storied history to lead the team in scoring as a freshman, and North Carolina would like to keep it that way. It's possible that Doherty could start three freshmen -- Jawad Williams, Jackie Manuel and Melvin Scott -- by midseason. This could turn out to be a productive trio, but counting on all three youngsters to provide consistent production would be foolish.
