The day of the championship game, staff writer Harris Wheless asked students who their favorite UNC basketball player is and why.
"My favorite current player is Joel Berry, because I played point guard in high school and I like the way he controls the court. And my favorite player of all time is Kendall Marshall because when he broke his wrist he wrote 'pass first' on his cast."
— Chris Cannady, sophomore, media and journalism
“Marcus Paige because he was a freshman when I was a senior, and it’s been awesome to see his ride over the last couple of years.”
— Laura Brush, 2013 graduate, public policy
