Andrew Platek Makes Impressive Season Debut at UNC
The 2019-'20 season is off to a really strong start for Andrew Platek. The junior guard at North Carolina scored eight points on 3-4 shooting from the floor in the Tar Heels' win over Notre Dame. Platek played 26 minutes off the bench for UNC as his role continues to expand with more time spent at Chapel Hill.
Platek was a NewsChannel 13 All-Star his junior season at Guilderland. That was his final year with the Dutchmen before attending Northfield Mount Hermon in Massachusetts. His development between Guilderland and prep school paved the way for a spot at one of the most prestigious college basketball programs in the country.
As a sophomore, Platek appeared in 32 games while averaging a little more than three minutes per game. With the departures of Cam Johnson, Luke Maye, Coby White and Nassir Little, there are minutes to fill and Platek made the most of his season-opening opportunity. He made both three-pointers he attempted, grabbed four rebounds and dished out two assists.
