'Late Night with Roy' Details

CHAPEL HILL -- Carolina's annual kickoff to the basketball season, Late Night with Roy Williams, will start a little earlier this season.

An NCAA rules change means teams can begin practicing before midnight. Doors will open for Late Night at 6 p.m. on October 13, and basketball action will be underway by 7 p.m. Admission is free and seating is general admission. ESPN personality (and Carolina alum) Stuart Scott will host the festivities, which will be televised on ESPNU.

Late Night is a celebration to help both the Tar Heel men's and women's basketball teams open their seasons and features skits, dances, contests and a basketball scrimmage.

Fans are encouraged to arrive early, as seats will fill up fast. The first 6,000 fans in the Smith Center will receive TEAM CAROLINA rally towels. Don't miss your first chance to watch Carolina's highly-rated new freshmen in person.

Also, Late Night is the perfect opportunity to buy your tickets for the first opportunities to see the highly anticipated 2006-07 team against outside competition. The UNC ticket office will be open from 5-8 p.m. on Oct. 13 selling tickets for Carolina's two exhibition games.

6 p.m. Doors open to the Smith Center
7 p.m.* Women's basketball program
8 p.m.* Men's basketball program
