Well, not quite, but close: UNC basketball in August! NCAA rules allow schools to do one international trip every 4 years, and I gather some new interpretation lets freshmen participate even if they haven’t started school yet. And you can have 10 practices to get ready (although Carolina only used 5, apparently.) So they’ve gone to the Bahamas for 2 days to beat up on some “all star” teams and get a little pre-season work in.
This is the new freshman, Harrison Barnes, we are counting on. #1 recruit in the country last year. We certainly need something after last year’s train wreck.
Oh yeah, we won 130-87. After today’s game, it will be a long wait until the next exhibition in mid-November.
