UNC Basketball 2023-24 player preview: Seth Trimble

We are just a few weeks away from the resounding echo of Tar Heel chants reverberating through the Dean Smith Center as the UNC men’s basketball program aims to rebound from last season’s disappointments.

To address the issues from the previous season, the Tar Heels are focusing on leveraging new talent acquired through the transfer portal and recruiting class. Additionally, they plan to entrust more responsibility to the returning players donning the Carolina blue threads.

Among the returning players, one who is expected to make significant strides is sophomore guard Seth Trimble. With the departure of Caleb Love and D’Marco Dunn, Trimble has the opportunity to establish himself as a well-known player this season.

Last season exposed the possibility that UNC’s previous national title win could have been an anomaly. However, with reduced expectations, the Tar Heels may perform even better.

Regardless, Trimble is an integral part of UNC’s plans, so let’s dive into our player review.

Despite a limited playing time of 9.8 minutes per game in his freshman season, Trimble made a significant impact with his defensive prowess. While he didn’t have eye-popping stats, there were a few standout performances.

One of those exceptional games came against Wake Forest, where Trimble played 22 minutes, recorded two blocks, and scored 11 points flawlessly, shooting four for four from the field.

Projected Role for the 2023-24 Season

Trimble is expected to see a substantial increase in playing time this season due to the departure of experienced players. While he may not start, as RJ Davis will likely take on the role of shooting guard, Trimble will be one of the first players called off the bench. He will be entrusted with driving the team’s defense and will also have more opportunities to contribute offensively.
