1. Tyler Zeller is a total nerd
As a business school student and an Academic All American, it’s a pretty well known fact that Tyler Zeller gets good grades. What most people don’t know is exactly how much of a brain Zeller is. According to his old roommate, Paul Burke, Zeller locks himself in his room and studies for hours on end. But, the fun doesn’t stop there. According to Burke, Zeller will call his friends while he’s doing homework … just to tell them about his homework. Dork status? I think yes. But don’t worry Zeller, you keep making those jumpers and we’ll forget all about your late-night, scholarly phone calls.
2. Kendall Marshall has a teeny tiny shoe obsession (wait, we do too!)
Although I may be the opposite of #KendallMarshall – starting with the fact that I can barely dribble a basketball – we do have one thing in common. We both absolutely #loveshoes. Kendall’s shoes may be made by Nike and mine may be made by Steve Madden, but who is really counting? If you follow @kbutter5 on twitter, he’ll loves to hashtag #todayskicks along with a twitpic of some pretty #sickkicks. Here’s my real question for Kendall. #doyouhavemoreshoesthanme? #thatsimpressive
3. Dexter Strickland dates Austin Rivers’s sister
That’s right. Our very own Dexter Strickland dates Callie Rivers – the sibling of UNC arch nemesis Austin Rivers. Although us Tar Heels aren’t the biggest fan of her brother, we are happy that Dexter has found a little love.
4. Reggie Bullock jams out to Adele!
According to a source in the athletics department, Bullock loves this sultry songstress.
(Lyrics adapted from Rolling in the Deep)
Baby, I have a story to be told
But I’ve heard one on you
And I’m gonna make your head burn
Think of Creighton, Ohio, Duke of your despair
Make a home down there
As mine sure won’t be shared
The scars of the Creighton game remind me of that
They keep me thinking that we’re gonna have it all
The scars of the Creighton game, they leave me breathless
I can’t help feeling
We’re gonna have it alllll-ah-allllll
Rolling in the hooooop-ooo-ooop
You had the ball inside of your hand
And you played it, to the beeeee-eeeat
See what I did there?!?
