CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina during the upcoming basketball season will appear twice on ESPN’s College GameDay, the school announced earlier today.
The Tar Heels’ game at N.C. State on Jan. 26 (7 p.m., ESPN) will be preceded by a 6 p.m. College GameDay broadcast from Raleigh, and GameDay will be in Chapel Hill on March 9 for the regular-season finale between UNC and Duke (9 p.m., ESPN).
UNC will be appearing at a GameDay site for the ninth and 10th times in school history. By the end of this season, no team will have played in more GameDay games than the Tar Heels.
By the way, Hubert Davis’ replacement on GameDay will be Jalen Rose. Davis, of course, joined coach Roy Williams’ staff at UNC after Jerod Haase became the head coach at UAB.
