Basketball in the Triangle is always hyped up and expectations for the teams in the area are always high. With Duke bringing in another stacked class of freshman, UNC coming back with experience in Luke Maye, and NC State bringing in a whole new team.

  Duke is being headlined for their monstrous incoming class, leading that freshman class is South Carolina native, Zion Williamson. Alongside Williamson is RJ Barrett, Cam Reddish, Tre Jones and Joey Baker, all being freshmen. This team is full of potential, but the big question is if this squad can play when the lights are on them.

  UNC is coming into this season, after an early exit from the NCAA Tournament, with hopes to contend for a national championship.The big returners this year for the Heels will be Cameron Johnson, Luke Maye, Kenny Williams, and Garrison Brooks. Their new players, Nassir Little and Coby White, will be contending for big minutes and are expected to be a big part of this team.

  As for NC State, they are looking to add on to their unexpected visit to the tournament last year. This year’s team adds eight new players, six of them of them being transfers. The key factors of this team will be Torin Dorn, Markell Johnson, Braxton Beverly and Wyatt Walker. The Wolfpack have the guard ability to succeed, but they really need some big time play from their frontcourt.
