UNC, Indiana to Meet Again in 2016

Tar Heels will travel to Bloomington for the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

Seven months after North Carolina's Sweet 16 win over Indiana, the Hoosiers will get a rematch. UNC will play at Indiana for the 2016 ACC-Big Ten Challenge on Nov. 30, according to CBS Sports.

In that Sweet 16 game, a resounding 101-86 Tar Heel victory, it was the seniors on both teams that led the way. IU's Yogi Ferrell led all scorers with 25 points, while UNC's top two scorers were Marcus Paige (21 points) and Brice Johnson (20 points).

The Tar Heels are 6-8 all time against the Hoosiers, including a 1-2 record in ACC-Big Ten Challenge matchups between the two teams.

UNC's last trip to Bloomington was an 83-59 defeat on Nov. 29, 2012.

The Indiana game joins a Tar Heel non-conference schedule that also includes the Maui Invitational and a heavyweight matchup against Kentucky in Las Vegas.

UNC returns three starters and six of the top eight scorers from its 2015-16 team that reached the national championship game.
