Carolina welcomes nine new players this season with four experienced transfers in Stephen Clark, Ta’Lon Cooper, B.J. Mack and Myles Stute. They join a returning group that features Zachary Davis, Josh Gray, Meechie Johnson and Jacobi Wright. Johnson averaged 12.7 points and 3.6 assists per game (led team and eighth in the SEC).
