UNC Basketball: 5 hardest games on 2014-15 schedule

5 of 6

2. at Kentucky on December 13th at 12:00 p.m.

Last year, North Carolina’s win over Kentucky was one of the highlights of the season. The Tar Heels won 82-77 in the Smith Center in front of a sea of screaming Carolina fans wearing white-out shirts.

This year the game is in Lexington, but the change of location isn’t the only difference in the game. Kentucky will add yet another top recruiting class to their already strong core of returning stars. The Harrison twins are gone, along with newcomers Trey Lyles and Karl Towns Jr., both ranked in the top-10 of the ESPN 100 top basketball recruits.

This game will be on national television at 12:00 p.m. in Lexington, Kentucky. The crowd and students will be going crazy, so one of the keys to victory will be not letting the hostile environment get�to the young Tar Heels. John Calapari’s Kentucky teams generally take awhile to mesh, and this year’s team will be no exception to that rule. The Heels could catch the Wildcats at the right time to upset them in another battle of teams with Final Four hopes.�
