Youth is definitely served by the Tar Heels. Superstar freshman Diamond DeShields leads the way with 18.0 points per game, while freshman forward Stephanie Mavunga adds 11.0 points and a team-high 8.4 rebounds. The top four scorers and rebounders for the Heels are either freshmen or sophomores. North Carolina has always had a propensity for playing fast and sloppy, and for making their opponents play fast and sloppy, and their negative A/TO reflects that.
