November 15, 2013 is when the North Carolina Tar Heels match up against Holy Cross.  It will be both UNC’s and Holy Cross third game of the season.  It takes place in Chapel Hill and is a part of the Hall of Fame Tipoff Tournament. 

Look for this game to be a game where Roy Williams gets to test out some of his freshmen and bench players.  The Starters most likely won’t see the amount of minutes they will normally see during the season.  Overall Holy Cross finished last season 12-18, winning only 4 games on the road.  This is compared to Carolina’s record of 25-11, winning 14 of their 16 home games. 

Look for Coach Williams to run the floor the whole game against Holy Cross and control the tempo of the whole game.  We will get to see some of the new players as they will most likely get some quality minutes against a team that will be overlooked coming into this tournament.  It will be especially tough for Holy Cross to compete with North Carolina at home, as UNC rarely ever loses home games and Holy Cross struggles on the road.
