UNC red shirt first-year QB Drake Maye (10) passes the ball during UNC's match against Wake Forest at Truist Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 12, 2022. UNC won 36-34.

Maye adds another chapter to historic season with dominant showing at Wake Forest

The Tar Heels won 36-34 over Wake Forest Saturday night, clinching the program’s first Coastal Division title since 2015. For a quarterback that had to battle for the starting job all offseason, quarterback Drake Maye has vaulted himself into legitimate contention to be the program's first Heisman finalist in over 70 years. After the win, Maye stood along the brick wall at Truist Field trying to hide his budding grin. He might have been the first one to deflect the credit to his teammates, but it shouldn’t take long to state the obvious – the Tar Heels would have been in no position to get the victory without a defining performance from their signal caller.

UNC senior center Armando Bacot (5) chases forward Ben Burnham (25) during the game against College of Charleston on Friday, Nov. 11, 2022, at the Dean Smith Center. UNC beat College of Charleston 102-86.

The UNC men's basketball team won 102-86 over College of Charleston last night. But after the game, senior forward Armando Bacot seemed disappointed. Despite erupting for a monstrous 27-point second half, the only thing Bacot could acknowledge was the team’s lackluster first-half display. “I’ve been here for four years and I should just be able to dominate,” Bacot said. “I think I’m the best player in the country and I just haven’t been putting out that product so far. There’s no time for any of those hiccups.”

Sophomore guard Deja Kelly (25) dribbles the ball to the basket during the game against Virginia Tech at Carmichael Arena on Jan. 9th, 2022.

Relentless drive propelling UNC guard Deja Kelly into junior season

Going into her third season with the UNC women's basketball team, Deja Kelly has been named to both the Nancy Lieberman Award watch list — honoring the nation's best point guard — and the preseason All-ACC Team.  Last year, Kelly averaged a team-high 16.5 points per game and showed remarkable consistency and resilience throughout her sophomore season. “Deja is one of the fiercer competitors you'll ever meet,” head coach Courtney Banghart said. “Her level of competitiveness allows her to rise to the moment of the possession, on either end of the ball.”
