The Tar Heels currently have three seniors on their 2018 roster, but lost a ton of their top players to transfer this past offseason. In fact, five players who still had eligibility for the team transferred away prior to the season, including four who would have at least another year ahead of them for 2019.
So far in 2018 they are 5-15 and 1-10 as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). In 2017 they went 14-14 (11-9, ACC) after making the Sweet 16 back in 2016.
