One last game in Chapel Hill. No matter how bad the season, there’s still something about the fact that a player will put on the white jersey and run out the Smith Center tunnel to “Here Comes Carolina” one last time. That’ll be the case for several players, but for two in particular, Brandon Robinson and Shea Rush, a career that began on an unbelievable high is winding down in a fashion that neither expected.
Both will get Senior Night speeches after the game, and get one last chance to thank fans in person for their support. From the team hatter that Shea Rush became during that great 2017 run, to the absolute gamer that Robinson has been this season battling through constant pain, they have forever left their mark on the program. You just hate that it’s in a season where everything that could go wrong, did.
Still, all is not lost. The Tar Heels enter on a two game winning streak, and with the decision announced by Georgia Tech yesterday that they will drop their appeal of their 2020 postseason ban, there’s an outside chance Carolina could avoid playing next Tuesday. For any chance of that happening, they have to beat Wake Forest tonight. If you can’t be there tonight, here’s how you can catch the action:
- Time: 7:00 PM ET
- Location: Dean E. Smith Center, Chapel Hill, NC
- TV: ACC Network. Reese Davis and Jon Crispin will be on the call
- Radio: Tar Heel Sport Network (affiliates listed here) or Sirius XM channel 371 (internet 371)
- Streaming: The video feed is available on Watch ESPN on your smart TV, smart phones, etc for those who have access to the ACCN (LOL Comcast customers...oh wait) The THSN radio broadcast can be heard on Tune In or GoHeels.com
- Line: UNC -6.5
Note that if you want to hear the Senior Night speeches, you’ll need to either catch the THSN on the radio or on the web. The ACCN will cut away and not carry the celebration.
