CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina and Louisville will likely play each other in November 2013 in the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament in Uncasville, Conn.

The tournament on Friday announced its eight-team field for next season. In addition to UNC and Louisville, other participants include Fairfield, Richmond, Belmont, Hartford, Hofstra and Holy Cross.

The Tar Heels are in the “Naismith” bracket, which also includes Louisville, Fairfield and Richmond. The “Springfield” bracket is comprised of the other four teams.

UNC will host a pair of tournament games in the Smith Center on Nov. 15 and 17, and then will travel to Uncasville, Conn., for games on Nov. 23 and 24 at the Mohegan Sun Arena.

The Tar Heels three times before have played in the Hall of Fame Game in Springfield, Mass. They did that in 1982 against St. John’s, in 1987 against Syracuse and in 1996 against Arizona.
