The mad days of March are upon us, and UNC basketball is winding up to make another run in the NCAA tournament. How far the Tar Heels will go on their journey will depend on the performances of six key players.
While each of these players has the capability of putting up big numbers, some are more likely to than others.
Consistency, skill set and importance all factor into ranking the most likely March Madness heroes for North Carolina. Each player was ranked in those categories, and their hero rank was an average of those three elements. (The lower the rank, the better.)
The Tar Heels who didn't make this list simply haven't been playing the minutes conducive to heroic performances.
