    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog

    North Carolina star point guard RJ Davis will be returning to the Tar Heels next year in what would be his senior season. He posted the news on Twitter.

    Davis, the 6-foot, 175-pound point guard from White Plains, NY, will once again play alongside center Armando Bacot, who announced he was staying for his fifth and final season earlier in the week.

    Both Davis and Bacot led North Carolina all the way to the national championship game against Kansas in 2022. However, in 2023, North Carolina became the first team ranked No. 1 in the preseason AP Poll to miss the NCAA Tournament. Because of this, next year could act as a redemption tour for the two seniors.

    As for Davis, he averaged 16.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.2 assists this past season. The North Carolina point guard will be one of the best returning lead guards in the country.

    “We’re going to bring Carolina Basketball back,” Davis said to UNC Athletics. “I’m all in. I love this school, and I love to compete.”
