UNC Alumni Game draft results

Posted by on Thu, Sep 3, 2009 at 6:30 PM

UNC basketball kicks off its 100th year of competition with an alumni game Friday at 8 p.m., which will feature many of Carolina's professional players, including members from both the 2005 and the 2009 NCAA title teams.

Earlier this week, Phil Ford and Pat Sullivan served as general managers for for drafting two teams to compete in the game.  The teams follow below:

Blue Team

Shammond Williams

Ed Cota

Ty Lawson

Vince Carter

Dante Calabria

Jawad Williams

Wayne Ellington

Rashad McCants

Brandan Wright

Sean May

White Team

Brendan Haywood

Raymond Felton

Bobby Frasor

Jackie Manuel

Jeff McInnis

Danny Green

Marvin Williams

Rasheed Wallace

Antawn Jamison

Jerry Stackhouse

The Blue team appears, in my opinion, deeper and has a 3-point shooting edge, but the White team should dominate inside and has more of the accomplished NBA players.

I'm most interested in how some of the young NBA faces fare against more elite players.  In particular, a healthy Sean May will bang around with Brendan Haywood.

Oh yeah ... there is that Raymond Felton-Ty Lawson thing -- a frequent discussion for Tar Heel fans.  And Harrison Barnes will be visiting, too.
