North Carolina Tar Heel basketball thrives off of experience from returning players year after year.
In 2005, senior Sean May and junior Raymond Felton led the Tar Heels to a national championship. In 2009, Roy Williams won his second banner with the help of three seniors and three juniors.
In the 2012-13 NBA draft, North Carolina saw four players selected in the first round, all of which returned from the previous year.
This upcoming season is no different.

While most of the starting roles are filled, some positions are up for grabs. Now is the time for some of the younger players to come in and fill those spots that were left behind by the previous stars.
Here is a look into the important players that chose to return to play for North Carolina in 2013-14.
