Earlier this week, the College of Charleston men’s basketball team agreed to play the University of North Carolina in a three-game series that’ll start in the 2020-21 season.
The first game will be on the road as the Cougars travel to Chapel Hill, N.C. in 2020. In the 2021-22 season, the two will face off at home in the TD Arena then back to Chapel Hill in the 2022-23 season.
In the matchup against the Tar Heels, the Cougars have came out on top. In 2010, The Cougars beat the #9 ranked Tar Heels in overtime 82-79. Guard Andrew Goudelock scored 24 points including the game tying 3-pointer to send the game into overtime.
This series will give the College of Charleston men’s basketball team some national coverage. UNC is one of the top programs in the nation and this can be the opportunity for players to shine on a national level.
College of Charleston would be competing against some of the best players in the country. North Carolina currently has the third best 2020 recruiting class in all of college basketball.
A win against North Carolina would be a great win for coach Earl Grant to have on his already impressive resume. His record as head coach is currently 101-65. Under coach Grant, the Cougars have had impressive wins against LSU, VCU, Memphis and Rhode Island.
The matchups between the two teams should be fun to watch and definitely something to look out for in the future. It’ll definitely be a test for the younger players on the team. By the time this series starts, they’ll be experienced and ready to take on the Tar Heels.
