Happy Thanksgiving!

If you’re anything like me, you’ve spent the last several hours eating a lot of delicious food and promptly sleeping it off. It’s the best Thanksgiving tradition. Hopefully you’re now energized enough for your first round of leftovers and some Carolina basketball too.

Texas might not be ranked at this moment, but don’t let that fool you. For whatever reason, the Longhorns always play the Tar Heels tough. UNC will have to navigate the challenge without junior point guard Seventh Woods. It’ll be a good test for the freshman duo of Coby White and Leaky Black running the point.

The winner of tonight’s game will go on to face the winner of today’s UCLA/Michigan State matchup. Either way, the next two games will be a big test for the Tar Heels early in the season. The non-conference schedule doesn’t get easier from here, so hopefully they’ve found a way to cut down on the mistakes that have plagued them against some of the easier competition they’ve faced to this point.

As always, we’ll be back after the game with a complete roundup of the happenings. Until then...

Go Heels! Happy Thanksgiving!
