UNC Basketball: Portland Game Thread

Grab some turkey and settle in for some basketball!

Happy Thanksgiving, Tar Heel Blog! The staff and I hope that you’re having a wonderful holiday with your loved ones. Thank you for taking a break from your day to hang out with us.

The Tar Heels are kicking off the Phil Knight Invitational out west today with a game against Portland at 2:30 pm ET. UNC took care of business in their last game against Stanford with Joel Berry II finding his shot again following his return from a broken hand. Kenny Williams also absolutely went off from behind the arc.

Carolina shouldn’t need to be firing on all cylinders to deal with Portland, but you can be sure that there will be things Roy Williams is looking for as the competition in the tournament ramps up. Particularly, can the big men stay out of foul trouble this time around?

We’ll be back after the game with a full wrap up.

Go Heels!
