The last time UNC and Gonzaga met up for a basketball game, the Tar Heels came away national champions. The rematch comes to Chapel Hill tonight when 12th ranked Carolina hosts the 4th ranked Bulldogs.
UNC is getting back starting point guard Coby White after he missed the UNCW game out of an abundance of caution over an ankle injury. For two teams who love to score a ton of points, having Coby on the floor can only help. Carolina is obviously at their best when they can cycle through both White and Seventh Woods.
It should be an electric atmosphere in the Dean Dome. The snow has mostly cleared out of the area, and hosting a great team like Gonzaga will hopefully have people on their feet and loud. That can very well be the difference between taking down a higher seed at home and not taking full advantage of playing in front of your home crowd.
If you’re watching the game from home instead of the Dean Dome, you can catch the game on ESPN2 at 7:00 pm.
As always we’ll be back after the game with a complete roundup of the happenings. Until then...
