Teammates chip in as Berry returns against Bucknell

On his first shot, everything seemed back to normal for Joel Berry II. One minute and 39 seconds into the No. 9 North Carolina men’s basketball team’s 93-81 win over Bucknell, Berry caught a swing pass from Theo Pinson and fired off his first shot since being named the Final Four Most Outstanding Player in Glendale, Ariz., in early April. Nothing but net. But Berry’s first made field goal since April would also be his last of the night. The senior guard shot just 1-11 from the field, tallying only eight points as he made his first appearance of the season after missing the Tar Heels’ (2-0) season opener against Northern Iowa due to a broken right hand.
