Once again, Duke and North Carolina will be in the national-title chase, thanks in large part to the decisions over the past two weeks by Grayson Allen and Joel Berry to return in search of a second ring for each.
Juan Dixon returned to his roots Wednesday – literally. Shortly after being introduced as the new men's basketball coach at Coppin State, the former Maryland star reflected on a moment long before he even played the game.
Joel Berry helped lead North Carolina to the national championship while playing on two sprained ankles, and in the process ensured that his No. 2 jersey would forever hang from the rafters above UNC's home court. And now he's coming back for more.
