"CHAPEL HILL – The University of North Carolina men’s basketball team returns to action on Saturday, December 27th, at home against UAB. The starting time for UNC-UAB is 4 p.m.
Please note the starting time (4 p.m.) is a change from the original schedule that was released earlier in the fall. The game was originally announced as a 7:30 p.m. start.
Carolina defeated 12th-ranked Ohio State, 82-74, on December 20th in Chicago at the CBS Sports Classic behind Brice Johnson’s 18 points and nine rebounds and Marcus Paige’s 16 points and four assists.
Former Tar Heel assistant coach Jerod Haase is in his third year as UAB’s head coach. Haase played for Roy Williams at Kansas and was on UNC’s staff under Williams from 2004-12.
When Haase got to Birmingham, he announced an announced an initiative to raise awareness for pediatric cancer. Three seasons ago, UAB adopted a 5-year-old boy named Elijah Serritt, who was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. Since then, Eljah has undergone 17 surgeries and rounds of chemotherapy.
In an effort to assist Elijah and other children fighting cancer, Haase has asked his players to wear opposite colored shoes each game during the 2014-15 season. Haase and the Blazers are also challenging each of their opponents this year to wear opposite colored shoes (one color on one foot and one on the other).
The Tar Heels have accepted that challenge and will wear different shoes in Saturday’s game.
“I am so proud of Jerod for the job he is doing as the head coach at UAB, not just for the x’s and o’s and teaching the game, which he knows so well, but for the way he runs a program and makes a positive impact on the community in Birmingham,” says Roy Williams. “We gladly accept UAB’s challenge to increase the awareness of the fight against pediatric cancer."

Cancer has probably impacted most of our lives but having your child diagnosed has to be devastating. Pretty much puts life's priorities in prospective... Cancer sucks!

UNC Is -3 with a 66.5 O/U

This should be a high scoring affair, since both defenses pretty much suck. Out of 125 FBS teams, Rutgers is 95th and Carolina ranks 115th.

Rutgers may be worse defensively than the Heels, especially against the run. I think this comes down to Williams and Logan. Just don't let it come down to a freaking FG!

Duke has won two straight in the series, Carolina had won the previous eight. The last two games were decided by a total of five points. Looking at the team rankings in the ACC...

UNC is third and Duke is fourth in points scored per game, yet both are at the bottom of the ACC in yards allowed per game.

Although Duke is next to last in this category, they allow only 18.1 points per game while UNC allows a mind boggling 41.2. This stat tells me Duke has a very good red zone defense and opponents are forced to settle for FG attempts. Tarheel fans know where I'm going with this...

NCCU @ UNC

13 November 2014 - 08:31 PM

Most people hear NCCU and think it's an easy win, that's far from the truth. Although NCCU returns only one starter, they represented the MEAC in the tournament last year and lost in the second round to ISU, the same Cyclone team that ousted UNC 2 days later. NCCU is oddly enough located in Durham, hope it doesn't snow...
