The North Carolina Tar Heels continue to add games as conference opponents continue to deal with issues with COVID-19.

Tonight, UNC takes on Marquette in the latest non-conference game for the program since a neutral court game in Charlotte versus Louisville on February 27, 1977.

It is interesting how these stats and oddities relate to each other.

The Tar Heels own a 4-1 all-time record against Marquette, and the first time Carolina played Marquette was in 1977.

That game, which just so happened to be the final game of the 1976-77 season, is the only blemish on UNC’s five game record against the Golden Eagles.

If Carolina can take care of business tonight, head coach Roy Williams will earn his 900th career victory, becoming the fastest to 900 wins in both games and seasons than any coach in NCAA Division I history.

Another interesting factoid: Williams’s final win as the head coach of Kansas, and number 418 of his career, was against Marquette in the 2003 Final Four.

His focus is on adding another victory to this season’s total, and placing the Tar Heels on solid footing for the NCAA Tournament.
