CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina needs freshman Cole Anthony to live up to his lofty billing right away.
The ninth-ranked Tar Heels must replace their top five scorers, including three first-round NBA draft picks. That's created a significant overhaul to the rotation, and it starts with Anthony at the point of Roy Williams' fast-paced offense.
"It's a process," Anthony said. "I'm not coming in here expecting (Williams) to just give me the keys from Day One. I'm going to try to work - no, I'm not going to try, I'm going to work as hard as I can in practice every single day and hopefully he gives me that right."
