UNC basketball takes on UNC-Wilmington tonight in the Tar Heels’ first road game of the season.

The Tar Heels start the season 1-0 after a 34-point performance from Cole Anthony spurred them to an opening-night win over Notre Dame. The freshman was sensational, ditching his rec specs midway through the game and scoring the most points for any ACC freshman in his debut.

Tonight’s game is also a reunion between Roy Williams and UNCW head coach C. B. McGrath, who played for Williams at Kansas and coached in Chapel Hill from 2003 to 2017.

Tip-off is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. from the Trask Coliseum in Wilmington.

What if I don’t have cable?

A live stream will not be available ESPN’s digital platforms through the ACC Network, but plenty of other UNC basketball games this season will be available for online streaming.

Additionally, several cord-cutting options carry the new ACC Network.

YouTube TV prices at $50/month and carries all of ESPN’s channels (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, etc.) as well as the ACC Network. YouTube TV does not offer NFL Network or NFL Red Zone for pro sports fans.

Playstation Vue prices out similarly at $50/month and carries ESPN and the ACC Network. Vue also carries NFL Network and NFL Red Zone. A key note here: you don’t need to own a Playstation 4 to use Playstation Vue.

Hulu TV goes for $45/month and includes all ESPN channels, but does not carry MLB Network, NBA TV, NFL Network or NFL Red Zone.

Sling TV is the cheapest at $25/month, but includes the fewest channels. Make sure to avoid Sling Blue, as that package does not carry ESPN.
