North Carolina Basketball: 1 Critical Improvement for Each Tar Heel

It is far too early to give up on North Carolina basketball.

UNC was off to a disappointing 0-2 start to its ACC season before their big win over FSU. Now the team appears to be forming a bond that could propel them to the next level. But in order for the team to reach its full potential, individual improvements still need to be made.

This is a young, talented group of Tar Heels. Potential oozes from their pores. But with so much youth, it would be an impossible feat for all of them to reach their respective ceilings this season.

A more realistic expectation would be to point out one critical improvement for each Tar Heel, and hope each player can reach that goal.

There is nothing outlandish on this list. Every player is more than capable of improvement in these areas, and these minor tweaks could go a long way in making this team a contender.

The only players left off this list are Jackson Simmons and Luke Davis, as neither are in the primary rotations. Simmons may have earned more playing time after his performance against FSU, but that remains to be seen.

And, frankly, he hasn't shown much weakness other than his athletic limitations. Simmons may not be a top-flight athlete, but he is a quality basketball player.

On to the list.
