Armando Bacot explain why he wants to leave Tar Heels for Minnesota Timberwolves…

On senior night Tuesday, No. 7 North Carolina defeated Notre Dame 84-51 to secure at least a share of the regular-season conference championship. Armando Bacot participated in his record 162nd ACC game.

With almost three minutes left, the fifth-year player who owns the school record for career double-doubles and rebounds was showered with praise.

RJ Davis, who may have played his final game at home, said of Bacot, “He’s been a great leader for us.” “He’s been dominating here his entire career, setting record after record.”

Bacot ended the game with 14 points and five rebounds after making his final 3-pointer at Smith Center.

“I’ve told Andrés he can shoot the three, and he can shoot it, Hurry up and shoot, that’s all I want of him,” UNC head coach Hubert Davis stated. “I want him to stay in the paint so he can continue to dominate, he’s so good around the basket.”

With one COVID year left on his eligibility, Davis, a fourth-year senior, finished with 22 points and six assists. Right after Bacot, to cheers, he and 14-point scorer Cormac Ryan left the court.
