  • TEENAGE
  • 2004
    Age 19
    He also called on his fellow members of the 2004–05 basketball team to release their university transcripts because, in his opinion, "the truth is there in the transcripts" regarding bogus classes.
    More Details Hide Details University officials contacted McCants via mail and text message in the days following the first Outside the Lines interview, because McCants expressed "knowledge of potential NCAA rule violations involving the University of North Carolina," according to a letter signed by the athletics director of compliance. However, McCants had not responded as of July 7, nor had he discussed his claims with the NCAA, according to the Associated Press.
    With freshman Marvin Williams joining the squad for the 2004–2005, the junior class led by preseason Wooden Award candidates in McCants, May, and Felton gave UNC a high ranking in all preseason polls and the team was seen as one of the favorites to win the NCAA Tournament.
    More Details Hide Details After going 33–4 and winning the ACC regular season, McCants' 16.4 points per game helped secure UNC one of the four number one seeds in the NCAA Tournament. UNC cruised to the championship game, where McCants helped the Tar Heels defeat the Illinois Fighting Illini 75–70. McCants' three years at Chapel Hill were not without controversy. In an interview with local television station WRAL, McCants compared UNC to a prison, stating, "You're not allowed to say certain things, but once you get out of jail, you're free. (I'm) in my sentence, and I'm doing my time." McCants scored 1721 points in his career at North Carolina and made 221 career three-point field goals. On June 6, 2014, the ESPN program Outside the Lines broadcast an interview with McCants in which McCants claimed to have taken phony classes at North Carolina and had tutors write his classwork. The accusations by McCants followed reports by university administration and former governor Jim Martin finding academic and ethical issues with the university's Department of African and Afro-American Studies, including classes with little work assigned. However, all sixteen other members of the 2005 team released a statement that disputed McCants's account. Additionally, coach Roy Williams, separately interviewed by the same program, disputed McCants's claims.
  • 2003
    Age 18
    In the 2003–2004 season, McCants led the ACC in scoring with 20 points per game.
    More Details Hide Details With that effort, McCants helped lead UNC back into the NCAA Tournament with a sixth ranking, where they would lose in the second round to number three ranked Texas. He was the leading vote-getter on the All-ACC First Team as a sophomore, and was named a Second Team All-American.
  • 2002
    Age 17
    Alongside Sean May, Raymond Felton, and David Noel, McCants joined a stellar recruiting class at UNC for the 2002–2003 season, coached by Matt Doherty.
    More Details Hide Details In his freshman year, McCants led the Tar Heels in scoring with 17.5 points per game, and led them to a third round loss to Georgetown in the National Invitational Tournament. He was voted to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) rookie team.
    McCants began his high school career at Clyde A. Erwin High School in Asheville, North Carolina, but finished at New Hampton School in New Hampton, New Hampshire. He led New Hampton to the 2002 New England Prep School Class A championship and was named MVP of the title game.
    More Details Hide Details McCants played alongside future college teammate Wes Miller during his senior season.
