WALTHAM, Mass. -- Fear not North Carolina fans, Brandan Wright is projecting the Tar Heels will be just fine without him.

He's even saying that Deon Thompson and Alex Stepheson will be better than he was last season and will do something he couldn't -- put the Tar Heels in the Final Four.

"You'll see that those guys are really good," said Wright of his backups, freshman classmates who could have been starters at another school.
