But, with the return of Dexter Strickland, John Henson and Larry Drew the Heels have a high scoring three who will improve in their second years. Henson the main threat inside for UNC now that both Ed Davis and Deon Thompson. Coach Roy Williams also returns 7 foot tall junior Tyler Zeller. Recruit Harrison Branes may not play every second of each game but possibly the prize of the 2010 recuiting class will make a difference. Leslie McDonald is another interesting guard.
