It feels like it was just yesterday that UNC basketball managed to clinch their 6th NCAA Tournament Championship. Fans rejoiced in bars across America, Franklin Street was flooded by a sea of people in Carolina Blue, and the Dean Smith Center’s roof nearly blew off in excitement. After years of suffering through recruitment issues and bad media thanks to all of the “junk,” UNC managed to find their way back to the top of the mountain.
Now, it is time to do it all again.
UNC basketball will hold an exhibition game against Barton College on Friday night. It’ll be an opportunity to see what the seven newcomers can do, and it will also be an opportunity to see how Roy Williams plans to handle the absence of Final Four MOP Joel Berry II.
Most importantly, it will be the escape UNC fans have desperately needed from the excessive pain that is Tar Heels football this year (sorry Fedora and company, we really do still love you, though).
If you are unable to make it to the Dean Smith Center, here are ways that you can watch and listen to the game:
Time: 7:30 pm ET
Location: Dean Smith Center, Chapel Hill, North Carolina
TV: This game will not be televised via cable, as it will be broadcasted on ACC Network Extra (ESPN 3).
Radio: Tar Heel Sports Network. Jones Angell and Eric “Big Grits” Montross will be doing the play-by-play
