0 Comment(s) | Posted

Today's game in the What If Tar Heel Tournament sees the second-seeded 2005-06 team take on our most recent team, seventh-seeded 2011-12. Remember, this is the What If Tournament, so everyone's healthy (McDonald, Strickland, Henson, Marshall on 2011-12) and everyone came back to school (Felton, May, McCants, Williams on 2005-06; Davis on 2011-12). Take a look at the team capsules and rosters and let us know who you think would come out on top.

2005-06 What If Tar Heels

Coach: Roy Williams

Strengths: Physical front line, winners (05/09 championship teams), deep bench (Marvin, Terry, Frasor, Green)

Weaknesses: How to distribute the minutes

Will win the tournament if: Hansbrough and May can co-exist as THE dominant big man, Frasor and Thomas give Felton rest.

Will lose if: Felton gets in foul trouble, McCants starts forcing shots due to too much focus on inside game

Captains:  Felton/May

This team in one word: Strong

2011-12 What If Tar Heels

Coach: Roy Williams

Strengths: Depth (McD, Henson, JMM, Bullock all on bench)

Weaknesses: Outside shooting

Will win the tournament if: Barnes and Hairston can make shots from perimeter

Will lose if: Marshall fractures his scaphoid bone

Captains: Davis/Zeller

This team in one word: Unselfish
