Alongside first-year Coby White, Cameron Johnson has been North Carolina’s most steady offensive presence this season. The graduate student averages 16.3 points per game on the back of his prolific 3-point shooting. Johnson’s 47.9 percent rate from beyond the arc is good for second best in the ACC, behind only Ty Outlaw of Virginia Tech.
Johnson has been steady for UNC all season, showing up in big moments from a December win against then-No. 4 Gonzaga, and finishing with 16 points in Monday night’s loss to Virginia, despite missing four minutes near the end of the game.
When Johnson is on the floor, opponents are forced to respect his range. His presence creates space for White and Nassir Little to drive to the basket, and opens up teammate Luke Maye.
