Bersticker prepares for last go 'round

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.
