The Faith of the Tar Heels

In this day and age of scandals in college and professional sports, it is refreshing to read about college basketball players professing their faith in Jesus Christ, although you won't read about it often in the mainstream press or hear about it on TV.

I had heard that several Carolina players were Christians and participated in Bible studies, and this article from today's edition of the Kinston Free Press confirms it.

Here's an excerpt: . . .

[David] Noel said he believes the reason the Tar Heels are still playing this season is because of the bonding established through faith.

"It has flowed throughout this team this whole year and I think that's part of the reason this team has gone as far as we have," he said.

Hat tip goes to Mark Bergin at World Magazine Blog, who in this post mentions that freshman Marvin Williams is also a part of this Tar Heel revival.

Great stuff, Mickey!

Thanks for making a great day even better!! I was very impressed with how hard Marvin played all season, and especially in the final game with things not going his way. He kept hustling and was rewarded with that crucial tip-in!

Thanks again.
