UNC future in good hands with Davis


DETROIT -- Ed Davis just scored and got fouled by Goran Suton to put the Tar Heels up 20.

Tyler Hansbrough said earlier this week that he wasn't sure how good Davis was when he first got to campus. But once he started to play, it was clear Davis was the real deal.

If Davis were to sniff at the NBA, he would get a long look. He has the potential to be a star for the Tar Heels. He's starting to really get how to play in the post and is already a disruptive defensive presence. The Tar Heels should feel good about next season with Davis next to Deon Thompson as the primary post players.

Wayne Ellington had to have a good weekend to feel comfortable about declaring for the draft. I would say it's a safe bet he'll be gone with the way he's been shooting the basketball against Villanova and Michigan State.
