Is it time to panic about former No. 1 North Carolina?

Sports
North Carolina had a 15-point lead entering halftime of last season's NCAA championship game against Kansas. The Tar Heels would eventually lose that matchup -- but they entered the 2022-23 season as the No. 1 team in America and the national title favorite. Hubert Davis had, after all, returned key players from that Final Four squad and added Northwestern transfer Pete Nance to replace Brady Manek.But November wasn't kind to the Tar Heels, who lost their third consecutive game Wednesday -- all to ranked opponents -- with a 77-65 loss at Indiana. The preseason buzz is gone now. And a North Carolina squad that still has matchups against Virginia Tech, Ohio State and Michigan before it begins the bulk of its ACC slate in January must find some answers soon.ESPN's Jeff Borzello, John Gasaw...
