UNC Basketball: Final Regular-Season Grades for Tar Heels

The long haul of the regular season is finally over for UNC basketball, and the final grades are in.

The Tar Heels finished 22-9 overall and 12-6 in the ACC, in one of the most up-and-down seasons witnessed under the guidance of Roy Williams. And after an 0-2 start to the conference schedule, this team was beginning to look destined for another NIT postseason.

But Coach Williams and the players never quit.

They adapted, they fought and they clawed their way back into relevance. By no means has this team become the title-contending force fans have become accustomed to. But they showed a lot of character to fight through all the adversity.

A lot of pressure comes with donning that uniform, and these players have been sitting on the hot seat through much of the season.

The following is not a grading of the players' skill sets or how they translate to the NBA.

Rather, it is a grading of their production and proper use of their skills, along with how well they have developed throughout the season. Consistency and shot selection also factor into the grades the players receive.

Every Tar Heel, including Roy Williams, has been given a grade for their performances up to this point. The players are in order from the lowest to the highest grade.
