Freshman Bradley hopes to provide inside spark for Tar Heels

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) Tony Bradley Jr. knows the opportunity awaiting him this fall at North Carolina.

The freshman big man will suit up for a fast-paced offense that looks to get the ball inside. And the Tar Heels could use some help up front after losing a pair of big men - including Associated Press first-team All-American Brice Johnson - from an NCAA finalist.

"I'm not trying to say I'm coming in to score," Bradley said in an interview with The Associated Press. "I don't know what to expect. I'm just going to come in and work my hardest and see where it goes from there."
