Last week, we looked through the Tar Heel Blog’s UNC Fantasy Basketball Draft. You can revisit the summary here. This week, we can dive deeper into the challenge.

The teams are now set. Each THB contributor has meticulously placed their players into, what they believe to be, the best rotation for this challenge. Now it’s time to find out which squad is the best-of-the-best.

Below, there are Team Rosters and Team Summaries written by my THB colleagues. The polls used for voting will be immediately below the summaries. Remember, only those votes entered into the polls will count. Votes in the comments will not be tallied. (Voting ends on Wednesday, June 28th at 8:00 pm)

Let’s take a look at the bracket before we get into the individual teams and match ups.
