North Carolina sophomore guard Joel Berry will return to Chapel Hill for his junior season, according to multiple reports.
The 6-foot, 195-pound guard averaged 12.8 points, 3.8 assists and 3.4 rebounds a game for the national runner-up Tar Heels.
Berry scored 20 points in the title game loss against Villanova.

North Carolina should be Final Four contenders once again in 2016-17.
The Tar Heels are losing Marcus Paige and Brice Johnson, among others, but Berry, Justin Jackson, Nate Britt, Theo Pinson, Kennedy Meeks and Isaiah Hicks will form a nice core rotation for Roy Williams. UNC is also bringing in three four-star recruits.
