It's that time of year again. College basketball is on the minds of many students at the University of North Carolina. Following UNC's decisive win over Virginia on Saturday night, the Tar Heels find themselves sitting at first place in the ACC with the distinct opportunity to control their own destiny for a conference title, as well as a higher seed in the upcoming NCAA tournament. With college sports being a huge part of this campus's pop culture, staff writer Keaton Eberly asked UNC students: why is it so great to be a Tar Heel fan?

“The love for sports around here is mutual between everyone, even people that didn’t grow up playing sports really love the sports, so it is a huge community you can be a part of. Also, we are really good at sports, as opposed to my high school who lost at everything, and also having someone to cheer for that will actually win in pretty much everything. This is good because you can go to a basketball game, football game and tennis match, and we’re going to win more times than we lose, and I think that’s great. It is something that I’m not used to.”
