The University of North Carolina, which returns all five starters from a team that made it to the regional finals last season, was a near-unanimous No. 1 choice in The Associated Press’ men’s preseason Top 25 Poll released on Friday.
North Carolina received 62-first-place votes. Kentucky, which beat the Tar Heels in regionals last season, are No.2. The Wildcats received the remaining three first-place votes.
North Carolina has been the preseason No. 1 in three of the last five seasons. In 2008-09, the Tar Heels were a unanimous preseason No. 1 with five starters back, and that season ended with a national championship. The Tar Heels open the season against Michigan State at the Quicken Loans Carrier Classic in San Diego, CA., November 11. Our coverage of that game begins at 6 p.m. on MIX 102.3 FM.
The Tar Heels have also announced that they will also wear new uniforms for that Michigan State game.
