He certainly became a better player over the last four years, but he says the program means much more to him. “That stuff is all fun, but the thing that I will miss most, without a doubt, are my teammates,” Rush said. “It was the greatest bond and friendship I’ve ever had on a team.”
“Being a part of Carolina basketball was never about how much playing time I got, for me,” he said, “I was just thankful to be a part of that program and have the opportunity to put that jersey on, go to practice every day, do workouts with those guys and cheer them on every night.”
