UNC freshman big man Day’Ron Sharpe made his college debut in Wednesday’s 79-60 win over College of Charleston.
Sharpe didn’t get the full college experience, since students and fans weren’t allowed in the Smith Center.
“Even though there were no fans, it was still exactly what I expected for my first college game. Playing with Carolina is a dream come true. Even without fans, it was still a great experience for me.”
Sharpe came off the bench to score 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting in 22 minutes. He also pulled down 10 rebounds, five offensive, for a double-double to open his college career.
“Just focus on going to the boards,” he said of his priority for the game. “I’m a big guy. I like to move, high motor. I’m going to try help my team win wherever I can help them at.”
