The Tar Heels look to kick off their tournament on a high note in Greenville.

This game should have been in Greensboro, an hour west of Chapel Hill. Alas, it was not to be. North Carolina instead had to travel south a couple hours to the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina. That is where their road back to the Final Four will begin.

The Tar Heels will be looking to get back on course after getting bounced out of the ACC Tournament in the semifinals. Can the vital players stay out of foul trouble so they can stay on the floor? Will breathing too close to an opposing player be a foul on Isaiah Hicks? We’ll see.

Unlike most situations, UNC does not get primetime billing for this game. Carolina’s game will start shortly after the conclusion of Arkansas vs. Seton Hall. That’s expected to be about 4:00 pm ET. You can watch on TNT,, or the app on mobile.

Go Heels!
