Brian Bersticker has the potential to be an important contributer to the Tar Heels this season, but Carolina fans have heard that before. There's little doubt "Stick" has a great faceup game and can block shots -- and the Heels could really use his help in the frontcourt in 2001-2002. TarHeelBlue's Adam Lucas takes a look at the fifth-year senior.
"I'd rather face the basket than have my back to it," he said. "I feel like my face-up game is the strongest part of my game right now."
That's why he has always struggled a little to fit in with the Tar Heels. You're 6-foot-10? Then head down to the post and work on your hook shot.
