No. 12 Carolina Women’s Basketball Faces Coastal Carolina in Carmichael
CHAPEL HILL–The No. 12 Tar Heel women are back on the home hardwood Thursday night as they welcome Coastal Carolina into the cozy confines of Carmichael Arena for a 6 p.m. tipoff.
The two teams will be facing off for the ninth time in the last decade. The Tar Heels sport a perfect 10-0 head-to-record against the Chanticleers at Carmichael.
UNC will be looking to improve on its 2-1 record and build off the momentum gained in the road win at UCLA Sunday.
Freshman guard Allisha Gray was named ACC Rookie of the Week Monday after putting up back-to-back double-doubles against quality competition. She posted 15 points and 10 rebounds in the Tennessee game and followed that up with 30 points and 10 boards against UCLA.
As a team, Carolina leads the ACC in turnover margin, a good sign for the future. The Tar Heels are forcing an average of 22.7 turnovers per game.
Thursday night, fans are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to Carmichael Arena. It will go to the US Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots campaign.
Carolina’s game against Coastal Carolina will be broadcast live at 6 p.m. on 97.9 FM, WCHL and streamed right here online at Chapelboro.com
