UNC Holds Team Banquet

UNC held its annual basketball team banquet last night and unlike Josh Selby at Kansas, Harrison Barnes was in attendance.

Tyler Zeller and Harrison Barnes were named co-MVPs of the team. Zeller also received awards for highest field goal and free throw percentage as well as the Athletic Director's Burgess McSwain Scholar-Athlete Award. The award for top defensive player also went to Zeller which is based on Roy Williams' defensive grading system.

John Henson was named the most improved player on the team and tabbed as the top rebounder. Kendall Marshall received the award for most assists which is remarkable for a player who did not start until January and did not play more than 30 mins in a game until February. Marshall ended the season with 230 assists. Marshall was also honored as the freshman "who best exemplifies determination, sportsmanship and sacrifice for the good of the team." I would add leadership to that as well because the kid is a natural one.

The event was closed to the media and public and there is nothing new to report on the Barnes front save yet another internet guy saying the freshman will return. Whatever. As Barnes said the other day, when he knows everyone else will know and right now he doesn't know.
