Carolina Basketball

The ninth-ranked North Carolina men's basketball team travels to the College of Charleston tonight (7 p.m., ESPNU) for its final tune-up before its ACC schedule starts Jan. 10 against Virginia Tech. The Tar Heels will be the first-ever ACC team the Cougars have hosted and the second-highest ranked team to visit Charleston.

Time to clean house — or at least clean up — for North Carolina coach Roy Williams? Sure sounds that way. Whether it's nerves for young players or inconsistency from veteran players, time is running out in Williams' mind. He expects smoother performances with the Atlantic Coast Conference schedule looming.

The final score almost certainly will be one-sided and the majority of sports fans won't be watching ESPNU's telecast, but one of the highlights of Bobby Cremins' entire 2010 year will occur tonight. That's what a visit by North Carolina's basketball team to Cremins' fourth College of Charleston team will mean to the veteran coach.

Roy Williams, coach of ninth-ranked North Carolina, joked Sunday that what he got from the College of Charleston's Bobby Cremins for bringing his Tar Heels to Carolina First Arena for today's 7 p.m. contest was "no strokes on the golf course for the next two years." The truth is that the Cougars get a lot more than that from UNC (11-3). This is the second year of a three-year deal in which Charleston travels to Chapel Hill, N.C., twice in exchange for tonight's home game. Just as important, though, the Cougs receive plenty of national exposure for playing the defending national champions. A year ago in Chapel Hill, the Cougars were thumped, 108-70.

To dream the possible dream. To march into Carolina First Arena with a March Madness cause. One small step for college basketball, one giant leap for Cougar kind. Theoretically, it could happen. Has happened. Might happen again if the College of Charleston stars align tonight.
