The 2018-19 North Carolina Tar Heels had established scorers in forward Luke Maye and wing Cameron Johnson. While the bigger players were consistent sources of points, it was White that really made the team go. After scoring 16 points or fewer in his first five games, White took off for 33 points in a November loss to Texas. He hit seven 3-pointers in the loss in what was his first of three 30-point games. The 6-1 blur would lead the Tar Heels past Miami in February with 33 points and had a career-high 34 points in a win over Syracuse later that month. On the season, White averaged 16.1 points, 4.1 assists and 3.5 rebounds. He hit 35.3 percent of his 3-pointers and a North Carolina freshman record 82 treys. The Tar Heels advanced to the Sweet 16 where they lost to Auburn. White averaged 14.0 points and 3.3 assists in the NCAA Tournament. He was named to the All-ACC Second Team. He declared for the 2019 draft after just one season under coach Roy Williams.
