North Carolina adds Northwestern transfer Pete Nance
By ADAM ZAGORIA
North Carolina may have missed out on Matthew Mayer when he chose Illinois, but they scored a big addition Saturday with the addition of Northwestern transfer Pete Nance.
The 6-foot-10 Akron, Ohio native averaged 14.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists while shooting 45% from deep. He will join a loaded Tar Heels team that returns Armando Bacot Jr., Leaky Black, Caleb Love, R.J. Davis and Puff Johnson from last year’s national runner-up squad.
The son of former Cleveland Cavaliers star Larry Nance Sr. recently withdrew from the NBA Draft and remained in the Transfer Portal.
