Tar Heels agree to three games against UNCG

Posted February 28, 2013

— The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Tar Heels will play three regular-season basketball games against their UNC-Greensboro counterparts over the next three seasons, the teams announced Thursday.

The teams have never met on the basketball court.

The first game sees the Spartans traveling to Chapel Hill Dec. 7. UNC will be the road team in Greensboro during the 2014-15 season and the Spartans return to the Dean Smith Center in the 2015-16 season. Dates for the second and third contests have yet to be set.

The Spartans, who play in the Southern Conference, are 8-20 in head coach Wes Miller's first season. Miller, who was the youngest head coach in Division I when he was elevated from assistant in December 2011, played at UNC under Roy Williams and was a team captain in his senior year (2007).

In a statement Thursday, Williams said, "If we can help one of our former players who is coaching another team, that is also great for our program. Wes is a great young coach who did a fabulous job as a player at North Carolina and is an important part of our UNC family. We look forward to competing against his teams."

    Pigpen of a brain? Wow - how long did it take for you to come up with that one?

    I will be everything I have that if UNCG did not have access to play at Greensboro Coliseum, that unc would not play them there. They may get a game at unc, but never at UNCG. Fleming holds abut 1500 people when it's filled to capacity. ABout the size of a high school gym.

    And yes - Roy is throwing his former player a bone - and let me be clear - I think it's great! State does it every year with UNCA. But if the coach at UNCG wasn't a former unc alum, I don't see it happeneing.

    Now excuse me - I must go roll around in the mud and wallow in filth....or I could just go see the recent unc grads at McDonalds and Walmart.

    Coming from a ewenc fan(I assume) from the cesspool that is Durham.

    UNCG what a juggernaut ! :)

    Except for the Big10 challenge, UNC has not played a road game against a major college in the last 2 years. But its not the major schools that UNC is afraid to play on the road, its the smaller schools also. They couldn't handle the embarrassment if they would lose to one of those schools.

    Shocking that basketball players on the D-1 level from a program like UNC would be interested in coaching. And, ummm,hey State College Recreation grad, you ever looked at Coach K's bench?

    You know Duke never would have bought into this conservation unless one on your trolls (MoDuke) hadn't made his smarta@@ comment. So, troll, why don't you admonish him instead of calling us trolls.

    kay was just looking out for the health of the dook fans. can you imagine the sunburns the dook fans would have had if they had traveled to arizona.

  • GoHeels1969 Feb 28, 2013

    Um, no, dook does not schedule road games. Instead, they request for a "neutral site" with the claim that they want it more like a ncaa tournament game. Of course, the most famous attempt was the "home and home" vs. Arizona. Arizona was supposed to go to Cameron for year 1 and then play their "home" game in the Meadowlands in New Jersey! Lute Olsen cancelled the series immediately upon notification of this tidbit from cbs.

    Duke schedules road games with other teams. It's not Duke's fault the other teams move the games from their home areas to NBA arenas so they can maximize their revenue earning opportunity.

    It is ironic though that UNC trolls are whining about how Duke doesn't play road games in a thread about UNC playing at UNC-G, so my response is to provide a link to Duke's road game at UNC-G just 2 years ago.

    Even when I bring this game up as a true road game Duke has played, UNC trolls falsely claim that this doesn't count since it's Greensboro Coliseum and is neutral. However, Greensboro Coliseum is UNC-G's home court. None of those trolls are going to claim it's a neutral game now though, even though 3/4 of the arena will be UNC fans.
