The Blue Devils bolster the center position with the addition of Columbia grad transfer Patrick Tape. Tape will be available immediately for the Blue Devils and averaged 11.4 points per game in 2019. Tape brings in instant size and experience and a legitimate defensive presence to go along with freshman center Mark Williams. Tape hails from Charlotte originally. The 6’10, 235lbs big man fills a huge need for next years squad.
PHR: Being a North Carolina kid, how important was it for you to get back down to North Carolina to play your final year for one of the state’s premier programs?
Tape: It was huge for me. This was all I ever. Dreamed about as a kid. I’m just so excited to have this opportunity and look forward to making the most of it going forward.
