CHARLOTTE, NC – The Lipscomb Bisons will take on North Carolina’s Tar Heels in the First Round of the NCAA Tournament at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte tomorrow afternoon.
Tipoff is set for 1:45 p.m. CT. To watch the game, fans can tune in to CBS tomorrow.
No. 15 seed Lipscomb is playing in the tournament for the first time in school history, after winning the ASUN Conference Title over FGCU in the final, 108-96, in Fort Myers, Florida, to earn an automatic bid to the tournament..
The No. 2 seed Tar Heels are defending national champions, defeating Gonzaga 71-65 in the 2017 final. UNC has won six NCAA Championships in 49 appearances but are coming off a loss in the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship to No. 1 seed University of Virginia.
“We’re not going to be better than North Carolina overall,” coach Casey Alexander said on Sunday after the selection show held in Allen Arena. “We’ve just got to be better than North Carolina in one 40-minute game.”
