UNC, UK Will Resume Series

UNC, UK Will Resume Series

North Carolina and Kentucky have agreed to resume their men's basketball series beginning with a game in Chapel Hill next season.

The two schools did not schedule a game this year, ending a 12-year stretch in which the teams met annually in the regular season.

Carolina leads the series, 22-13, with the Tar Heels winning six of the last nine meetings.

"I think it's a great series for both schools and our fans as well as college basketball fans period," says Carolina head coach Roy Williams. "North Carolina and Kentucky have great traditions and, regardless of who you pull for, fans mark this as a must-see game on the schedule."

Carolina will play host to the Wildcats in the Smith Center on Dec. 14, 2013, and the teams will meet in Rupp Arena in Lexington in the 2014-15 season.
