The NCAA announced on Sunday night that UNC is one of 16 teams to host a regional site for the upcoming tournament. It’s the 12th time in program history the Diamond Heels have hosted a regional as they push for the goal of reaching Omaha.
Here is the full list of regional sites for the upcoming tournament:
Auburn, Alabama – Auburn
