As we knew there was a possibility due to trying to play basketball in a pandemic, Carolina’s schedule was altered less than a week into the season, when Elon announced COVID-19 issues within their program. The Tar Heels were supposed to host the Phoenix this Saturday in Chapel Hill, but the game was initially postponed. After not being able to reschedule, Carolina decided to try and play Elon next season, and focused on finding a new opponent. They were able to agree to terms with NCCU, who will now visit Carolina this weekend.
The game against the Eagles will start at 2 pm, and the Regional Sports Network will have the broadcast of the game between the North Carolina schools.
