North Carolina Basketball: 5 Changes Heels Must Make After Indiana Blowout

It is way too early in the season for fans, coaches and players to give up on the North Carolina Tar Heels after crushing losses to Butler and Indiana. But that doesn't mean changes shouldn't be made.

Roy Williams knows that.

Remember the 2010-11 season? UNC lost to Minnesota, Vanderbilt, Illinois and Texas during the first two months of action. After a 20-point loss to Georgia Tech, Roy decided he would go with Kendall Marshall over Larry Drew II at point.

The rest is history.

The team that was looked at as a joke at the beginning of the season went on to win the ACC regular season title. It also made a tourney run to the Elite Eight to put the cherry on top of an unthinkable season.

It could happen again.

Coach Williams is still flip-flopping his personnel groupings, and eventually, he will find one that works. This is a very young, but very talented team. With so many new characters, their game is raw and team chemistry has yet to form its bond.

Sometimes, coaches will also have to look beyond his or her usual scheme to find what works with the individual skill sets of their players. That may be the latest test for the Tar Heels' fiery leader.

I'm no Hall of Fame coach, but I have a few suggestions that may be worthy of consideration.
