Unofficial UNC basketball 2023-24 schedule
The 2023-24 college basketball season is still months away, but we are finding out more about the schedule for the North Carolina Tar Heels.
Hubert Davis and his staff will have the tough task of rebuilding this roster after failing to make the 2023 NCAA Tournament. With departures to the transfer portal and some arrivals, UNC will have a new look for next season.
Already, we are getting a look at what the nonconference schedule will be for the Tar Heels. They are scheduled to play in four events: Battle 4 Atlantis, Jimmy V Classic, CBS Sports Classic and Jumpman Invitational.
Per usual, UNC’s nonconference schedule is pretty tough with some good teams that they will face.
Let’s take a look at how the schedule is lining up for the Tar Heels as the rest of it will fully be released this summer, including the ACC schedule.
