08:00 AM ET 01.10 | A 61-52 loss to Virginia still fresh in the minds of fans, Roy Williams promised earlier this week he wouldn't panic. UNC is seeking to avoid an 0-2 start in ACC play and hoping to avoid a loss that would further erode the confidence of a team that hasn't yet built much of it. The Tar Heels most recently lost their first two conference games during the 2008-09 season, but they went on to win a national championship. Nobody, though, would mistake this UNC team, reliant on the unproven and inexperienced, with that one -- which was led by the likes of Tyler Hansbrough and Ty Lawson. Williams acknowledged on Wednesday that he has had to take a softer approach with this team, given its fragility.

UNC isn't very good this Yr an if they make the Tourney it'll be a Low Seed But after Dominating the ACC/NCAA 5 of the last 6 Yrs but they do lack the INSIDE BEEF/PRESENCE plus PG that they enjoyed the last few Yr's wth Hansbourgh then Zeller an Henson & lack a True Scoring Threat like HARRISON BARNES,McAdoo isn't their yet.
But they're a Young Squad who lost 4 Players to the 1st RD of the last NBA Draft,thats right DUKE Fans 4 Players how many have u sent in 1 Yr...2 maybe? Next Yrs Class plus the Maturity of Hubert,Paige,Brice Johnson,Big FROSH JOEL JAMES an others will be key. But Kennedy Meeks will bring another Large Body PF/C to go wth JAMES next Season an 5* F-Isaiah Hicks.
