Nov. 8 Game Times Set

CHAPEL HILL --- The University of North Carolina and North Carolina Central University will play a men's basketball exhibition game on Saturday, November 8th, at the Dean E. Smith Center.

The basketball game will start 90 minutes after the conclusion of the Tar Heels' football game against Wake Forest. The UNC football game begins at 12:10 p.m. at Kenan Stadium.

The estimated start time of the basketball game should be between 4:45 and 5:15 p.m.

Doors to the Smith Center will open 30 minutes after the football game ends.

Tickets for the basketball game are $10.

Seating for all three of Carolina's exhibition contests (Blue-White scrimmage on Nov. 2 and vs. Nike on November 13) will be similar to the March 2003 NIT games against DePaul, Wyoming and Georgetown. Seating will be reserved on one side of the court in the lower level, but three-fourths of the seats in the lower level and all seats in the upper deck will be general admission (non-reserved) seating.

Football permit parking will be in effect, but fans coming to the basketball game only may park near the Smith Center if spaces are available after 2 p.m. Parking may also be available in the decks on Manning Drive.
