Wayne Ellington has warned his Tar Heels teammates about playing Penn at the Palestra tonight. "The Philly atmosphere. How close everybody is on the court," said Ellington, who played twice at the Palestra for Episcopal Academy as a senior in 2006. "How loud it got when Oak Hill held the ball on us."

No NBA team has ever graced the Palestra floor. But tonight, the ancient arena might be seeing the next best thing. No. 1 North Carolina has three likely NBA first-rounders in its starting lineup and one of the most legendary figures in college basketball history at the helm. And when the Tar Heels (7-0) come to town tonight to take on Penn (2-6), it will be the first No. 1 team to play in the Palestra since 1962.
