Case for North Carolina to Win 2023-24 ACC Regular Season Championship

Through late January, UNC looked well on its way to not just winning the conference championship but running away with it. A brief stumble midway through conference play opened the door for Duke and the rest of the ACC, but North Carolina has won its last five to guarantee at least a share of first place.

UNC boasts two veteran All-ACC-caliber players in guard RJ Davis and big man Armando Bacot, and transfer Harrison Ingram has been everything Carolina fans hoped he would be.
