McAdoo A Preseason All-America
Release: 10/01/2012

CHAPEL HILL - North Carolina sophomore forward James Michael McAdoo has been named a part of the Sporting News' 2013 Pre-Season First Team All-America team, the magazine announced on Monday.


 
McAdoo averaged 6.1 points and 3.9 rebounds in 15.6 minutes per game last season but is expected to move into a larger role with the Tar Heels in 2012-13 with the loss of Tyler Zeller, John Henson and Harrison Barnes to the 2012 NBA Draft. 

Moving into the 2013 season, McAdoo should be among UNC's first scoring options now that the team lost three frontcourt players to the NBA.  In fact, Sporting News predicts that it will be McAdoo's production in the paint that will make UNC an outstanding team this season.


 
Sporting News' College Basketball awards are decided on by the Sporting News editorial staff in consultation with coaches and scouts around the country.
