J.P. Tokoto’s confidence has blossomed in recent weeks. He is coming off the best game of his time at UNC: 22 points, 11 rebounds, four blocks and five steals during the Tar Heels’ overtime victory against Davidson on Saturday.

UNC made a season-high 34 free throws against Davidson, and 11 of 12 in overtime. Still, UNC is shooting 61.3 percent from the free-throw line for the season. If that pace holds, this would be the worst free-throw shooting team in school history.

Northern Kentucky reclassified to Division I last season. All 12 of its players have started at various times this season, and 11 average at least 12 minutes of playing time per game.
