1 day ago UNC Golf: Tar Heels advance to final eight of NCAA Championships

Starting later today out in California, the final rounds of the NCAA Men’s Golf Team Championships will take place, and the North Carolina Tar Heels will be part of the action. After finishing tied for third place as a team in the four-round stroke play portion of the competition, the Tar Heels will now be part of the eight-team match play bracket that will take place over the next two days. UNC collectively went +11 over the course of the four rounds, finishing behind only Illinois and Vanderbilt, tying with Virginia. Carolina comes into this portion of the tournament in pretty good form, having been only one of two teams to finish under par in Monday’s fourth round. Carolina golfers collectively were -4 on Sunday, with Illinois at -1 the only other team that didn’t finish over par for the day. Dylan Menante’s -3 round helped the Heels charge up the leaderboard after the team had been solid but unspectacular first three rounds. As for what’s next, the eight teams left will now be seeded and put into a bracket to determine the team national champions. How this portion of the tournament works is that each team will put up five golfers to take on five from their opponents in five match play rounds. Whatever team wins three of those match play head-to-heads will win and advance onto the next round, until there’s a national champion crowned. UNC will go into that portion of the competition as the four seed in the bracket. They will take on #5 Florida State, who they surpassed in the standings on the final day of play. The rest of the bracket will be #1 Illinois vs. #8 Georgia Tech, #2 Vanderbilt vs. #7 Ohio State, and #3 Virginia vs. #6 Auburn. The first four stroke play rounds also double as the individual NCAA championship in addition to qualifying for the team title bracket. UNC’s high finish in that portion was Peter Fountain, who finished tied for 20th at +2. In total, five Tar Heel golfers finished in the top 50 in the individual competition, but none quite close enough to truly compete for the national championship. It will certainly be a tough road from here on out, but the Tar Heels have been knocking on the door in golf for a couple years now. Best of luck to them, as they hopefully can add to UNC’s national title tally.

1 day ago UNC Recruiting: 2025 five-star Cameron Boozer discussed his potential schools during EYBL Session 4
Photo by Evan Yu/NBAE via Getty Images The high school star is into country music, but does he like Cascada enough to follow in his dad’s footsteps? UNC and Duke have never been strangers to some weird crossover events when it comes to recruits. We’ve long heard the stories about this guy being a Duke fan growing up (Caleb Love), or this person’s parent played for the other school growing up, and it’s one of those things that adds a little something to the rivalry. Cameron and Cayden Boozer, children of former Duke star Carlos Boozer, are the latest to create an interesting crossover situation because Hubert Davis is recruiting them both heavily to join the Tar Heels in 2025. For now let’s strictly focus our attention on Cameron Boozer, because Zagsblog got to speak with him after helping the Nightrydas Elite defeat the Florida Rebels over the weekend in EYBL play. They asked him about each team that is currently recruiting him, and here is what he had to say about UNC: “It’s how hard they play, how great their defense is. Another school that’s one of the most winningest schools in college. Things like that. [Hubert Davis] is a great guy. He really gets his players to get after it, compete every night. That’s what made them so good this year. So that’s probably the main thing.” This likely goes without saying, but Duke is also working hard to attract Boozer to their program. Here is what he had to say about his dad’s alma mater: “Duke is obviously a great school, one of the most winningest schools in college basketball. So that’s obviously very impressive for them. Just the way the get at it and make deep runs each year.” It’s clear that Boozer has been doing his homework on both programs, and his take on the Tar Heels is one that is likely music to fans’ ears. Perhaps it should be pointed out that these types of interviews usually don’t provide any hints into what recruits are thinking, but it’s still significant that Boozer is taking UNC seriously in this process. There’s never any guarantee that a child of a former college star would follow in their footsteps, so this will be one of the more interesting recruiting storylines until both he and Cayden make their announcements. Cameron Boozer is a 6’9 power forward that currently plays for Columbus High School in Miami, FL. He is the best power forward in the country, and the second-best overall player according to the 247Sports composite. Aside from Duke and UNC, Boozer currently holds scholarship offers from Miami, Kentucky, Florida, Florida State, Arkansas, and Michigan. Right now there are no signs as to when Boozer may announce his commitment, but Ball Durham believes that Miami may be the school to beat to land him. It makes a lot of sense for a number of reasons — he currently lives in Miami, they have a really good NIL program that I will not comment on beyond that, and Jim Larranaga is one of the better coaches in the ACC. We will see if Hubert Davis can be persuasive enough to win him and his brother over, but it sounds like it will be an uphill battle. What do you think of Boozer’s comments? Let us know in the comments below.
