North Carolina Basketball: Full Preview, Predictions and Storylines for 2012-13

There's no such thing as a rebuilding year for North Carolina basketball. 

Roy Williams has lost four-fifths of his starting lineup, but it's not like he isn't already used to years like this in Chapel Hill.

After the Heels won the National Championship in 2004-05, Williams lost an astounding six of his top seven scorers. The next season, he still managed to wrestle a second-round appearance in the Big Dance out of his team. 

The next time didn't go so smoothly. After losing four starters from the 2008-09 title team, Williams and the Heels won just 20 games and missed the tourney.

But this time around, Williams has more talent to work with. He brings in a Top 10 recruiting class, multiple key players are returning from injuries and several young guns figure to take the next step towards greatness.

Rebuild? I think not.

Let's take a look at what the Tar Heels face for the 2012-13 season.
