Tuesday the UNC Tar Heels were manhandled by the #1 Indiana Hoosiers 83-59, in a loss that left them both stunned and looking for answers. When asked what the Tar Heels needed to fix sophomore forward James McAdoo response was quick…
“I just think we need to really work on our camaraderie, I would say.”
“We’re great off the court,” McAdoo said. “But on the court I feel like when they were going on that run, we were kind of all looking to each other when we should have been just coming together as a team … knowing that not one person – not me, not anyone – had to make one spectacular play that was going to bring us back.”
It’s Coach Williams job to make sure to gather and refocus the team when they are struggling, and to drill the importance of team work in practice. The good thing for UNC is that it is still very early in the season, and they have plenty of time to correct the mistakes that have troubled them early. I fully expect this talented Tar Heel team to learn from these mistakes and be viable contenders once ACC league play begins in January.
