Basketball season is upon us as many college basketball programs opened basketball practice today.
UNC was one of them starting the day off with Roy Williams Fast Break Against Cancer breakfast. The annual event included an auction and raised $200,000 this year and has raised $2 million over its 11 year history.
The Heels hit the court for the first official practice at 3:30 PM. Here is Roy Williams discussing his love for being out there with the team.
The first day of practice is underway at the Smith Center and Coach Williams is excited to get started. #goheels pic.twitter.com/qG7Ipy5thD— Carolina Basketball (@UNC_Basketball) October 2, 2015
Yesterday concluded preseason conditioning with freshman Luke Maye winning the annual mile run in 5:06 which is impressive as was Kennedy Meeks' running his mile in 6:03.
UNC's media day is October 12th.
