After ten days on the road, the University of North Carolina men’s basketball team returns to the friendly confines of Chapel Hill to take on the Michigan Wolverines. It’s remarkable to think that since that fateful day in April 1993, these two teams haven’t had a rematch, especially since there’s been a whole challenge thing that specifically puts teams from the Big 10 and ACC together.
Here’s how you can catch the action tonight:
Time: 7:30 Eastern
Location: Dean E. Smith Student Activities Center, Chapel Hill, NC
TV: ESPN. Bob Wischusen doing play by play and Dick Vitale doing color. Keep reading if you suddenly recoiled in horror.
Radio: Tar Heel Sports Network. Jones Angell doing play-by-play, with Eric Big Grits Montross for color.
Streaming: Watch ESPN, ESPN App for video. Goheels.com or the TuneIn App if you, for some reason, would rather listen to the THSN.
Line: Opens Carolina -10.5, check for latest
I’ve spoken with a few people on and off Twitter about using the TuneIn app since, for some reason, people weren’t happy with listening to the ESPN broadcast this weekend. I feel that this may be a problem again for some people, not quite sure why I have that feeling, but I do.
I will, once again, say that the TuneIn App is a great resource. The THSN is free on there, no subscription is required, and you just have to listen to a 30 second ad prior to the stream beginning. The thing the app has that the radio doesn’t? A pause button. That’s right, when you turn on your TV, you can time how far ahead the app is, pause it, and sync it up to where the sound is simultaneous with the video.
This is especially great for anyone who has a sound bar hooked up to their TV that allows you to switch the sound from a different source. For me, I just send the device streaming the game via bluetooth to the bar, and you are good to go.
Seriously, who better to listen talk about the last time UNC and Michigan played than a guy who was on the court? You’re welcome in advance.
