UNC basketball gets more good news after Armando Bacot’s return

Leaky Black joins Armando Bacot in bringing it back with the UNC basketball program.

Fresh from an appearance at a national championship game, not only does the UNC basketball team bring back Armando Bacot, but Leaky Black said he will be back in his fifth season with the Tar Heels.

Black tweeted a heartfelt video Friday afternoon about his decision to exhaust his final year of college eligibility at Carolina Blue. While Bacot and Oklahoma graduate Brady Manek became one of the biggest names during the Tar Heels’ national title run, Black’s name began to resonate nationally with every win North Carolina achieved during the NCAA tournament .

Here’s the video he tweeted on Friday, wowing Tar Heel fans everywhere.

UNC basketball star Leaky Black returns for his fifth season at Chapel Hill

While the NBA may be part of his basketball future, Black’s basketball presence in North Carolina is stellar. The Tar Heels topped massively in Hubert Davis’ first year at the helm of the legendary Roy Williams. From February’s tournament bubble to near-complete victory in April, North Carolina should bring plenty of momentum into next season.

What Black’s return means for the Tar Heels will not only give them a strong core to build on next season, but will allow Black to really capitalize on his NIL opportunities. He and Bacot will be two of college basketball’s most marketable stars to return next season. It might not be that of a pro contract, but it should be enough to stay in school and get a master’s degree.

Ultimately, the key message in Black’s return video is that he wants to enjoy every last second in Carolina Blue for as long as possible. Chapel Hill is a special place and Black knows it. When else will he have the opportunity to play ball with his best friends on the planet and claim an elusive national title? Run-it-back stories don’t always pan out, but watch out for UNC in 2023.

Expectations for the 2022-23 Tar Heels will be sky-high, but that’s exactly what Bacot and Black want.
