The North Carolina football team's schedule for the 2020 season has been announced, featuring two Friday night games, a neutral-site game against the Auburn Tigers and a five-game stretch of ACC Coastal Division opponents.
Coby White, Cameron Johnson and Nassir Little were all selected in the first round of the 2019 NBA draft. Here's how the former Tar Heels are making the adjustment to professional basketball midway through their rookie seasons.
UNC head coach Roy Williams said that he prefers for his players to foul when they're up three in the closing seconds of regulation to stop opponents from attempting a game-tying 3-pointer. In Saturday's loss, Williams forgot to remind his players to do so right before Aamir Simms sent the game to overtime.
Despite 27 points from senior guard Brandon Robinson, the UNC men's basketball team (8-8, 1-4 ACC) was defeated by Clemson (8-7, 2-3 ACC) in overtime on Saturday, 79-76. The win by the Tigers was Clemson's first ever in Chapel Hill, ending a 59-game streak by UNC.
In 2020, the North Carolina football team is expected to look almost identical on offense with some holes to patch up on defense. Could the No. 19 recruiting class in the country take the Tar Heels to the next level?
Despite four UNC starters scoring in double figures and a career-high 26 points from senior guard Shayla Bennett, the North Carolina women's basketball fell to Virginia Tech, 76-70.
Janelle Bailey's season-high 16 rebounds and Shayla Bennett's 25 points, which ties her career high, weren't enough to carry the North Carolina women's basketball team past Yale in Saturday's 66-63 loss.
The UNC men's basketball team was in the middle of Roy Williams' worst season at the helm, T.J. Yates was starting a tradition of solid UNC quarterbacks that Mitchell Trubisky and Sam Howell would continue and Anson Dorrance was leading the women's soccer team to a second consecutive NCAA title ten years ago.
North Carolina's running backs accounted for five of UNC's eight touchdowns in the Tar Heels' 56-7 shellacking of Mercer. Junior Michael Carter led the way with 159 rushing yards and three touchdowns in the final home game of the season.
In another sloppy start for the North Carolina men's basketball team, it wasn't Cole Anthony's scoring heroics that bailed the team out against Elon. Sophomore guard Leaky Black's impressive second-half defense helped UNC widen the gap against the Phoenix in a 75-61 win for the Tar Heels.
