[Feb. 13, 2013] Following four years of starting at center on four, dominating 2A Northwood Chargers basketball teams, it would have been easy for current UNC sophomore Chris Forbes to have moved on from basketball following an unsuccessful attempt during his freshman year at UNC to make the UNC Men’s JV Basketball team. However, after failing in his first attempt in the fall 2011 at earning a highly-coveted UNC JV Men’s Basketball team roster spot along with nearly 100 other undergraduate hopefuls yearning to don the Carolina blue, Forbes became even more determined and set his sights on making the 2012-13 UNC JV Men’s Basketball team. This persistence paid off with a spot on the 2012-13 UNC JV Men’s Basketball team. By by Dr. J. Brent Cooper
