UNC Basketball vs. Wofford: Game Thread

Revenge.

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Second Round-North Carolina vs Texas A&M Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Basketball that actually counts for something is back as UNC kicks off the 2018-2019 season in Spartanburg, SC, to take on the Terriers of Wofford. It’s a revenge game for Carolina, as Wofford came into the Dean Dome last season and stunned the Heels in one of the biggest upsets of the season full-stop.

UNC looked good enough to turn in a high-scoring performance against Mount Olive in their final exhibition game of the season last week, but they will need to clean up the turnovers to avoid another disappointing result to start their season.

It will also be interesting to see what starting lineup Roy Williams goes with. Coach started freshman Coby White at point guard over Seventh Woods in the matchup against Mount Olive, citing that White had played very well all preseason to earn the nod. Does the same hold true for tonight?

This one actually counts. Hopefully it ends up providing lots of good feelings for moving forward.

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

Go Heels!
