'Another sixth man': Banghart's energy gives UNC optimism despite loss to N.C. State

Despite UNC’s 76-68 loss to N.C. State on Sunday, the team’s optimism hasn’t wavered, in large part thanks to head coach Courtney Banghart. The Tar Heels have trailed at halftime in their last seven games, and though they’ve only come back to win three times in that stretch, they’ve shown promise. Aside from a 14-point road loss to No. 14 Florida State two weeks ago, UNC hasn't fallen by more than seven points this season. “That’s the team I’ve got, a group of fighters,” Banghart said. “That’s what I expected, and that’s what I got.”
