This should save everyone from making the basketball season jokes tomorrow if UNC ends up losing to Virginia Tech.
Basketball season or at least the start of practice is indeed here with the annual Late Night with Roy festivities set for 7:30 PM tonight at the Dean Dome beginning at 7:30 PM. GoHeels has all the details for the event which will be hosted by former Tar Heel Bobby Frasor.
Late Night is also a big recruiting night for UNC with several prospects set to visit. The Tar Heels have yet to secure a commit for the 2015 class which is a little unusual at this stage of the calendar. Inside Carolina has a rundown of the visiting recruits for tonight here. Among this group, P.J. Dozier and Brandon Ingram are the key 2015 recruits who will be in attendance. UNC is presently in a tight race with Duke, NC State and others for the Kinston native Ingram's services.
As a primer for the start of basketball practice, GoHeels.com has an quick interview with Roy Williams. There isn't anything earth shattering in the interview outside of detailing how Marcus Paige will be used in terms of positions. Williams also talks a bit about the team improving on defense. UNC certainly has the athleticism to be a solid defensive team, especially with the addition of players like Theo Pinson.
