Bullock, a junior from Kinston, led the Tar Heels to a 25-11 record, a berth in the ACC Tournament championship game and the third round of the NCAA Tournament.

Bullock also was named a permanent team captain with senior guard Dexter Strickland (Rahway, N.J.) and sophomore forward James Michael McAdoo (Norfolk, Va.). They each received the John Lotz Team Captain Award.

Freshman point guard Marcus Paige (Marion, Iowa) received the Athletic Director’s Burgess McSwain Scholar-Athlete of the Year award and the George Lynch Award as the team’s best defensive player.

Sophomore guard P.J. Hairston (Greensboro) received the Danny Green Award, which is given to the team’s most improved player.

He was part of UNC teams in 2010-11 and 2011-12 that won ACC regular-season titles and reached the NCAA regional finals and won 106 games. As a senior, Strickland led the nation in assist-turnover ratio with 150 assists and only 47 turnovers. He also received the Kendall Marshall Award for the best assist-error ratio (3.2).
