UNC Superfan

Meet superfan Topher Ahrens, a sophomore from Parker. Inspired by a friend who leads a vibrant student section at another university, Ahrens went big at all but two of UNC’s home men’s and women’s basketball games this past year to pump up the players and the crowd. A favorite moment from the season? When UNC’s Jordan Davis chased down a fast-breaking point guard at an away game in Denver and rose above the hoop to block his opponent’s shot. “I just went crazy,” Ahrens says. “And all the DU fans booed me, but I didn’t care!”
