As noted by the Associated Press (h/t ESPN), the Tar Heels have played only six home games this season. Coach Roy Williams referred to that as “not a good situation.”
North Carolina generated headlines last week when a home matchup against the Miami Hurricanes was scrapped after a video showing Tar Heels players Day’Ron Sharpe and Armando Bacot partying unmasked around other unmasked individuals went public. UNC players and team managers later apologized for the celebration that occurred after the Tar Heels notched a 91-87 win over the rival Duke Blue Devils on Feb. 6.
North Carolina fell to 12-7 overall and 7-5 in conference play via a loss to the No. 7-ranked Virginia Cavaliers this past Saturday. The Tar Heels are next scheduled to face the Louisville Cardinals this coming Saturday.
