The first day of the Basketball season is upon us. The day can bring about mixed emotions from fans, as the fans wonder which teams are going to live up to expectations and which teams are going to take the bad losses which will eliminate them from at large tourney contention.

"They're talented. They're gifted," Roy Williams said of newcomers. "I know they're going to step up and be able to play for us."

The North Carolina went with White as the starting point guard in last week's exhibition against Division II Mount Olive, suggesting that he's ahead of junior Seventh Woods.

"They've been neck-in-neck," senior guard Kenny Williams said of the point guards. "I don't know what made Coach make that decision."

Sophomore Garrison Brooks was pegged as the starting post player for North Carolina, though that could be a fluid situation.

North Carolina has players representing 64.6 percent of the team's scoring from a year ago, when the team posted a 26-11 record. Maye scored 16.9 points per game, Johnson was at 12.4 and Kenny Williams at 11.4

Elon senior guard Fletcher Magee is the North Carolina Conference Preseason Player of the Year. He averaged 22.1 points per game, including 27 at North Carolina. The Terriers were picked to finish second in the league's official preseason poll as they come off a 21-13 season.

"We're as deep a team as we've had in recent memory," Elon coach Mike Young said. "I hope that plays out over the course of the year. I can comfortably play a number of guys."

Magee gave the North Carolina fits last year.

"They played better than us in every phase of the game," Roy Williams said. "There's no question that Magee is just and unbelievable shooter. He makes difficult shots."

The Terriers took an offseason exhibition trip to Portugal to help prepare for the season. The benefits of that have shown up this fall.

"Just becoming more comfortable with one another," Young said. "... We'll look at some different things defensively."

North Carolina is 96-12 all-time in season openers, including 14-1 under Roy Williams. The Hall of Fame coach as the North Carolina in the preseason Top 10 for the 13th time in 16 seasons.

All four previous North Carolina-Elon matchups took place in Chapel Hill, N.C.

This will be only the seventh road opener for the North Carolina since the dawn of the Atlantic Coast Conference era in 1953-54. North Carolina is 5-1 in the previous such assignments.

Elon pulled off a 63-60 home victory against Georgia Tech last year, so it's no easy path for ACC visitors.

In their first two seasons at UNC, Williams and forward Luke Maye played for the national title twice. As freshmen, the two lost 77-74 to Elon on a game-winning buzzer beater. As sophomores, they won the championship on a 71-65 win over Elon.
