UNC basketball rumors are swirling around college hoops regarding drama between star Tar Heels Caleb Love and R.J. Davis involving the latter’s girlfriend.
It’s been another disappointing season for UNC basketball. The Tar Heels began the year as the No. 1-ranked team in college basketball but have since fallen well out of the Top 25 as the returning core of Caleb Love, R.J. Davis, Leaky Black and Armando Bacot have failed to live up to expectations after finishing as national runners-up last year.
And now there are rumors about regarding wild drama between two of the team’s veteran stars that seemingly started in the first rivalry matchup against Duke on Feb. 4.
It involves Caleb Love, R.J. Davis, one of the two guard’s girlfriends and perhaps the absolute last thing that UNC basketball needs at this point in time.
Caleb Love, R.J. Davis girlfriend rumors for UNC basketball, explained
As explained by KentSports on TikTok, the Cameron Crazies chant sheet for the Duke-UNC game in Durham on Feb. 4 contained a note that Love allegedly hooked up with Davis’ girlfriend — though it used some less kind terms. Moreover, it continued to say that the incident has caused beef between the two friends, as you’d imagine, and that Davis wouldn’t sit next to Love in class. It was also alleged that the woman in question plays for the North Carolina women’s basketball team.
It’s truly wild stuff, especially amid this disheartening season for the Tar Heels.
However, we don’t know how true the rumor is. And there is now starting to be some pushback on it.
Jack McGuire of Barstool Sports, who is infamously normally all over the pulse of these salacious rumors in college sports, took to Twitter on Thursday and said the Caleb Love and R.J. Davis rumors were, in fact, not true.
That certainly won’t shut the door on people speculating. But one thing that’s for certain is that UNC basketball fans should be hoping that none of this is true as the Tar Heels try to fight over the final month of the regular season to secure their spot in March Madness.
Update, Friday, 6:40 p.m. ET: Love tweeted out on Thursday afternoon to refute the rumors about him and Davis.
Davis then quote-tweeted Love’s message to assumedly agree with the sentiment that everything is good with the UNC basketball program.
Perhaps a sigh of relief is in order.
