2018 Tar Heels Season Preview

The North Carolina Tar Heels had an impressive season in 2015-2016, winning the ACC Tournament and making it to the National Championship against Villanova where they lost in a close game within the last five seconds. The Tar Heels 2016 showing in the final four last season was their 19th. As UNC heads into the 2016-2017 college basketball season they have lost six seniors, including team leaders Marcus Paige and Brice Johnson resulting in head coach Roy Williams need to utilize his returning players with Final Four experience into the starting lineup. The Tar Heels still have a lot of talent from seniors Justin Jackson and Kennedy Meeks. Williams offensive coaching style is expected to adjust with the loss of their top offense players; Theo Pinson should make up for that on the court. Defense will be the focal point of the team this season with the increase of more consistent and efficient defense players. The 2016-2017 UNC Tar Heels schedule will challenge the basketball team early on against Indiana in November and Kentucky in December. Whether you are planning on cheering on the Tar Heels at home games or supporting North Carolina on the road, TicketCity has some of the best deals for all North Carolina Tar Heels tickets, including home and away games.

North Carolina Tar Heels Rivals

This is arguably the best rivalry in all of college sports. Separated by only about 10 miles, these two tobacco road powerhouses have been able to dominate every basketball team on the east coast, except each other. Both teams are in the top five in total wins and combine for over 9 national championships. The game day atmosphere is rowdy, passionate, and unmatched by any other rivalry in basketball. This is one of the only rivalries in any sports that consistently has regional, conference, and national title implications on the line.

North Carolina vs. North Carolina State

This is one of the most intensely contested rivalries in college sports and never receives the media attention it truly deserves. If this rivalry happened in any other state it would be the talk of the entire region. These two schools are separated by only about 25 miles and have won a combined 7 national championships. The Wolfpack and Tar Heels have etched out dozens of conference championships and tournament titles, and this is year in and year out one of the best games in the ACC.

North Carolina vs. Wake Forest

Wake Forest and North Carolina have met on the hardwood over 210 times and have produced some of the most memorable games in college basketball history. Although North Carolina has dominated the win column, a majority of the games are won by a small margin and tensions are always high when these two teams meet.

What time do the gates open prior to a Tar Heels game?

Doors at Dean Smith Center typically open 90 minutes before tipoff. Dean Smith Center is one of the most iconic arenas in all of sports and we recommend getting to the game early to take in the atmosphere and admire the many banners hanging from the rafters.

Where are good places to eat before a Tar Heels game?

One of the best places to for a pre-game meal is at Top of the Hill Restaurant & Brewery. Top of the Hill is usually packed with Heels fans, and has a good menu as well. There are several great Indian food places in the area we recommend trying Mint, Cholanad, or Vimala’s Curryblossom Café. If you are a Thai food fan don’t miss trying Mei Asian as it is one of the best in the area. Carolina Brewery and Linda’s Bar and Grill both have good bar food and even better pre-game atmospheres. Other places worth checking out are Bandido’s Mexican Café, Elaine’s On Franklin, and Sutton’s Drug Store.

Where is the best place to park at the Dean Smith Center?

Parking at Dean Smith Center is limited and spread out over a large area. The closest parking spots are reserved for permit and parking pass holders only. The closest general parking lot is the Manning lot located on the east side of Manning Drive at Skipper Bowles Drive. Another great place to park is at the Bowles Lot which is in-between William Blythe Drive and Kenan Drive. Just on the other side of William Blythe is the Craige Deck, which is the last large parking option in the area.

Does my child need a ticket to attend the game?

Children aged 2 and younger do not require a ticket to enter Dean Smith Center but must sit on a guardians lap for the duration of the game. It is recommended that you bring proof of you child’s age to the gate with you to ensure they are allowed to enter the arena.

2015-2016 North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball Season Preview

By any programs standards, the North Carolina Tar Heels basketball team had a fantastic season a year ago, reaching the ACC Tournament Final, and the Sweet 16. But in Chapel Hill the expectations are to beat Duke, and win a title, neither of which the Tar Heels were able to do last season. North Carolina enters the 2015-16 season with possibly their most talented team in half a decade, and have the expectations of bringing an ACC and possibly a National Championship back to Chapel Hill for the first time since 2009. Much of the focal point of the 2015-16 Tar Heels will be on senior shooting guard Marcus Paige. Paige and power forward Brice Johnson could be the most dynamic 1-2 punch in the ACC, and have the talent to match anyone in the country. The Tar Heels 2015-16 schedule will be challenging, with games against Texas, UCLA, Maryland, and Kansas State in the non-conference, to go along with a ruthless ACC schedule. Look for North Carolina to be one of the more dangerous teams in 2015-16 and challenge for a number 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

2014-2015 North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball Season Preview

Last season was a year of ups and downs for the North Carolina Tar Heels. North Carolina started the season rocky, losing at home to Belmont and Texas, and being upset by UAB on the road. But midway through the season the Tar Heels figured things out and rallied to win 12 games in a row at one point. Coming into the 2014-15 NCAA season North Carolina looks to use that experience to push towards another ACC title. The Tar Heels will be one of the most experienced teams in the ACC. Junior point guard Marcus Paige will be one of the top players for the Tar Heels and much of North Carolina’s hopes will live with Paige. He will look to dish the ball to athletic big men Brice Johnson and Kennedy Meeks. The top new comers for North Carolina will be Justin Jackson and Joel Berry. Look for North Carolina to be one of the most athletic teams in the ACC in 2014-15 and for the Tar Heels to be in the thick of the ACC title hunt.

2013-2014 North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball Season Preview

The Tar Heels are looking to get past last year's issues on the court, and head coach Roy Williams did a great job bringing in some help in the form of Isiah Hicks and Kennedy Meeks -- both McDonald's All Americans. They'll assist P.J. Hairston and James Michael McAdoo as they try to bring the ACC Championship back to Chapel Hill.

It won't be easy for the Tar Heels, as they've given themselves one of the toughest non-conference schedules in the country. UNC will face defending-national champion Louisville, Michigan State and Kentucky before ACC play tips off. The conference got tougher over the summer as well, adding the likes of Syracuse and Pitt to an already tough lineup.

2011-2012 North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball Season Preview

Tar Heels basketball is steeped in tradition. As the alma mater of Michael Jordan, this storied basketball program is looking to build off another successful season. Last year the team was 14-2 in the ACC and coasted to the conference's regular season championship. They also advanced to the elite eight of the NCAA tournament.

Returning to the squad will be sophomore Reggie Bullock, a guard who racked up six points per game last year. Expectations are high for this kid, who has said he feels he only played up to 70 percent of his potential last year. Bullock's teammates believe he is the next big thing and have full confidence that he can improve upon his already amazing average of 61 percent from three point land.

Carolina fans will be glad to know that John Henson is back and ready to dominate the glass. The 6' 11" junior put a little weight on in the off season and will likely become an inside presence by bringing down more rebounds. He also worked on his manual dexterity and can now use either hand with efficiency. He hopes to help the Tar Heels with another successful run at the tournament when the season begins.

2010-2011 North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball Season Preview

Carolina Blue-it sounds so calm and serene. But when you see it used in its natural environment—in the Dean Smith Center on the jerseys of the UNC Tar Heels men’s basketball team and their 21,000 disciples—you understand it’s not the case. That’s because for the fans in the Dean Dome, Carolina Blue isn’t merely a color but an outlook… and a color to paint the baby’s room or the color scheme for a wedding. To get caught in that sea of Carolina Blue at a Tar Heel game is to be a part of something special, something TicketCity can help you experience.

The Heels are looking to harness that energy from the crowd after an off year where they went 20-17, and received an NIT bid instead of a more prestigious NCAA tournament invitation. It was the worst season in coach Roy Williams’ tenure at Chapel Hill, and to top it all off their bitter rivals Duke University won it all. The consolation prize for Williams and the Tar Heels is that they snagged three of the top high school recruits in the country, including Harrison Barnes, the 6’8 forward atop everyone’s list. Add freshman guards Reggie Bullock and Kendall Marshall, and the Tar Heels look to be an exciting team for the foreseeable future, and one that can definitely contend for an ACC title in 2010.
