On Thursday, the 2019-20 North Carolina Tar Heels women’s basketball schedule was released.

New head coach Courtney Banghart will begin her Carolina career with four straight games in Chapel Hill. The Tar Heels begin the season against Western Carolina, then take on Navy, Charleston Southern, and Elon in a two-week span.

UNC travels to Mexico for Thanksgiving and will participate in the Cancun Challenge. In the second game, the Tar Heels will face their toughest test of the non-conference schedule in Missouri.

The Tigers were in the same region as Carolina last season in the NCAA Tournament. Mizzou made it to the second round, losing to second seed Iowa 68-52.

The Tar Heels will face off against Illinois in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, then face local opponent NC Central three days later.

Carolina’s only true road game will come against Alabama prior to the end of the semester.

After the holidays, UNC finishes off their non-conference schedule against UNCW in Myrtle Beach and Yale in Carmichael Arena.
