North Carolina senior forward Brice Johnson was named a First Team All-American today by the United States Basketball Writers Association. As a result, he will have his jersey put up in the rafters at the Dean Dome as part of the program's tradition of honoring All-Americans.
The Tar Heels put out a very cool feature showing Johnson finding out about his All-American status from head coach Roy Williams, as his teammates cheered him. The video goes on to include Williams talking about Johnson and Johnson saying how much the honor means to him.
If you bleed Carolina blue, this is a must-watch.
