UNC announces more men’s hoops start times; both State games in afternoon

By R.L. Bynum

More times were filled in Thursday for Carolina’s men’s basketball schedule, with both N.C. State games now set to start in the afternoon.

Instead of the first meeting with the Wolfpack at the Smith Center on Jan. 29 starting at 8 p.m., it will now start at 2 p.m. The second matchup on Feb. 26 in Raleigh, which previously had no announced time, will start at either 2 p.m. or 4 p.m.

The Dec. 5 game at Georgia Tech has been moved up from 4 p.m. to 3 p.m. and the Dec. 29 home game against Virginia Tech, previously without an announced time, will begin at 7 p.m.


Previously, the Jan. 26 home game with Boston College was announced as a 7 p.m. start but is now listed as to be announced.

Two other games that previously didn’t have a time announced are the Feb. 12 home game against Florida State, which starts at 2 p.m., and the Feb. 19 game at Virginia Tech, which tips at 4 p.m.

In addition, College of Charleston announced Friday that UNC’s game there at TD Arena on Nov. 16 will start at 8:30 p.m. and air on CBS Sports Network.

Late Night is set for Friday, Oct. 15 at 7:30 p.m., with an exhibition home game Friday, Nov. 5 against Elizabeth City State and the season opening at home Tuesday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. against Loyola of Maryland.

Elizabeth City State also plays an exhibition on Nov. 1 at N.C. State.
