UNC and UAB to play three-year basketball series beginning this season

North Carolina and UAB have agreed to play a three-year basketball series, beginning with a game this season at the Smith Center.

Larry Gallo, the senior associate athletic director who handles the men’s basketball schedule at UNC, said on Tuesday that dates have not been finalized and that the two schools are still completing contractual details of the series.

Duke starts fast, cruises by UAB 85-64

DURHAM -- It may have been Duke’s best start of the season.

Sparked by senior point guard Nolan Smith, the top-ranked Blue Devils scored 26 of the first 30 points Wednesday night at Cameron Indoor Stadium in an 85-64 defeat of Alabama-Birmingham.

Duke cooled off eventually. UAB grew more accustomed to the crowd and the Blue Devils’ defense, cutting the deficit to as little as 14.

But there aren’t many teams capable of defeating top-ranked Duke (14-0) after falling behind by 22 points in any arena, let alone at Cameron.
