Good morning everyone. It's Will Wednesday here in the A.M. report. Hope everyone has had a pleasant morning thus far, and I'll attempt to make it better for you with some Tar Heel headlines for the day.

Yesterday at Argyle, we had a story on UNC's top fantasy performers, and a preview of the Tar Heel XC team.
We've got some awesome content on tap today, so stay tuned.
