Every year the North Carolina Tar Heels play several nonconference matchups with smaller North Carolina programs. Head coach Roy Williams always makes it a priority to schedule area mid-major schools.
Fortunately for him, the Tar Heels didn't have to schedule Elon this season. They'll play on Wednesday as a campus game for the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament at the Smith Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
UNC is undefeated and ranked No. 5 in the country. Behind NBA Draft prospect, Cole Anthony, the Tar Heels have rolled through their competition.
Elon has yet to garner a win against a Division I opponent despite their 2-2 record. They are coming off blowout losses to Georgia Tech and Michigan.
Here is all the information you'll need to view the game on NBC Sports Washington Plus.
