UNC Basketball to host Wofford at Carmichael Arena

On Thursday, North Carolina announced that its men’s basketball team will return to Carmichael Arena for a match-up with Wofford during the 2019-20 season. That game will take place on December 15.

It’s a neat throwback move for UNC Basketball, which moves over from the Dean Dome — its home since 1986 — to Carmichael due to the Smith Center hosting December Commencement that day.

The game against Wofford will mark the fourth time in the last five seasons that North Carolina has faced the Terriers — which included a Wofford upset victory in December 2017 at the Dean Dome, thanks to 27 points from Fletcher Magee.

Wofford, however, will go through a bit of a transition season next year. Magee and big man Cameron Jackson, two of the best players in program history, are gone; so, too, is former head coach Mike Young, now at Virginia Tech. Starting forward Keve Aluma followed Young to Blacksburg, too.
