UNC hoping freshman Williams provides 3-point shooting boost

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) Kenny Williams III is known for his 3-point range. Just don't refer to North Carolina's newest guard as simply an "outside shooter."

"I really don't like that label," he said in an interview with The Associated Press. "I know that's what I do best and that's how I made my name. But it's like when you use that, you pigeon-hole a person. I'm not just an outside shooter."

Regardless, it's a term the freshman will hear often as the season approaches. He's joining an experienced and deep team that will be a Final Four favorite behind all-Atlantic Coast Conference returnees Marcus Paige and Brice Johnson, yet one whose struggle to find consistent 3-point shooting last season was its most glaring weakness.
