Wear twins reportedly transferring from UNC

Former McDonald's All-Americans David and Travis Wear are transferring from North Carolina and hoping to get their releases "as early as Thursday," the players' father, Dave Wear, told Frank Burlison of the Long Bech Press-Telegram.

"When they return home (to Huntington Beach, Calif.), we will sit down as a family and review their basketball and academic options," said Dave Wear. "... They decided they didn't want to return to North Carolina."

David Wear averaged 10.5 minutes per game this season while Travis Wear averaged 10.3.

The departures leave UNC with just two experienced players who are taller than 6-feet-4 (Tyler Zeller and Jon Henson) on next season's roster. The Tar Heels' three-player recruiting class does not include any power forwards or centers.

Wear twins reportedly transferring from UNC

AS George KINGFISH Stevens used to say" Holy macheral there Andy", Roy might have to show his coaching ability without 10 Mickey D AA again.  Can you say 5 hundred.  These guys are penciled in as starters for the Heels next year so what the hell is going on in Chapel Hill??  Now everytime something happens in college BB, it's Coach Cal's fault.  The guy has enough to worry about with the teams GPA just above the mendoza line. Question, if that was the average, who was high and what was low??? That was first semester, second was inc,inc,inc.F,inc for all the NBA farmhands.  Remember, its easy to win at poker if you get dealt 4 aces every hand, so Roy, 2/7 off suit is tough.

Didn't Memphis have to vacate 38 wins accumulated during the 2007-2008 season (under Calipari)?

Calipari involved ??

There is a rumor in Lexington that the twins are interested in upgrading to Kentucky next season. Not sure if Cal can find the roster spots, but they might be able to help our team GPA !!

I would love to know exactly how that would be an upgrade...You must have bumped your head before writing such trash.  Cal is scum that will show his true colors as he did at all previous schools...not a matter of if, only when and what.  Good day

Anytime you lose two double-digit scorers, it's a big deal.
MCA,

Travis Wear averaged 3.5 pt and 2.2 rbs, and David Wear averaged 2.9pts and 1.7 rbs.  That's a combined 6.4 pts and 3.9 rbs.  The recruiting class coming in will easily make up those statistics.  Granted their playing time this year would have increased from the 10 min per game they averaged, but you were not looking at two players that were going to start or be more than role players.  The Wear's are not quick, and did not run well, which is Roy's style. 

Let's not start reading more into this than it is.  Roy has one of the top recruiting classes this year and next.  Let's not prematurely announce the end of the Tarheels. 

This will be nothing more than a minor setback.

How are the Cats back? Did they do something special like win a chanpionship? And how many times are you going to post the same post?

@CRYSTAL LAKE

I agree with most of what you are saying.  I also thought about Will playing the 4 when the Heels went small.  But I think the reason it is such a big deal is because Zeller hasn't gone through an entire season healthy, and he has had two attempts to do so.  Throw in the fact that Henson weighs 190 and there is a lot of reason for worry.

In a perfect world, neither Zeller nor Henson would get hurt next year.  A small lineup with Graves or Barnes at the 4 would give us room to put another one of our guard/wings out on the floor.  That might be a good thing, I can think of some pretty exciting lineups with that.  But this world isn't perfect, and if one or both were to get hurt, we'd be completely screwed.
