The Hawaii basketball team has reached an agreement to play North Carolina on Nov. 20, 2020 in the Stan Sheriff Center.
It will be the first meeting between the teams since 2016, when the game drew a capacity crowd in Manoa. The Tar Heels won that Nov. 18 matchup 83-68 en route to the Maui Invitational.
“It’s awesome,” UH coach Eran Ganot said. “It’s exciting on a lot of different levels to bring in a really good team in our arena in front of our fans. You’re talking about a national program, great coach (Roy Williams). They’re good every year. They’re national championship contenders every year.”
The Rainbow Warriors will offer a preview of this season’s team with tomorrow’s exhibition against Hawaii Pacific in the SSC.
