Where can one begin with this foursome?
Do you first address their potential future No. 1 pick, Harrison Barnes?
What about their elite frontcourt of Tyler Zeller and John Henson?
You could also start with their floor general, Kendall Marshall.
As Marshall saw more action, UNC won more consistently. That's not a coincidence—the point guard sees the floor very well and generally makes good decisions to hit open teammates or find passing lanes through the defense.
Marshall, who averaged 6.2 assists per game as a freshman, ties this team together.
Barnes is a smooth scorer who grew more comfortable as the season progressed. After averaging 15.7 points per game as a freshman, Barnes could definitely pour in 20 per night.
While Henson's basketball IQ is questionable, he's indisputably one of the nation's best shot-changers. He averaged 3.2 blocks per game to go along with his 11.7 points and 10.1 boards. His length makes it extremely difficult for opponents to dominate the paint.
Zeller isn't as formidable of a defender as Henson, but he still gets the job done—the seven-footer blocked 1.2 shots per game last year. Zeller is valuable offensively because he can score and hit his foul shots.
UNC has a very well-rounded core.
