The 2022-23 college basketball season is still months away, but the excitement is at an all-time high for Hubert Davis’ team. That’s because four of the Tar Heels’ starting five from last season’s Final Four team are back with the latest being Caleb Love who announced on Sunday he was returning.
As we await the start of the new season, the Tar Heels now know one of their opponents.
Per Jon Rothstein of FanDuel, the Tar Heels will face off against Michigan in the inaugural Jumpman Invitational to be played on December 21st in Charlotte. This will be the fourth time UNC has played Michigan in the past five seasons.

The other game in the invite will feature Oklahoma and Florida battling. on December 20th.
UNC and Michigan met last season in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge with the Tar Heels taking home a big win at home. This also rules out the Wolverines and Tar Heels meeting in that challenge this season.
