The game will be televised on ESPN2 with Jon Sciambi and Jay Bilas calling the action (also available at WatchESPN.com).

North Carolina leads the all-time series with UNLV, 3-1, but the Runnin' Rebels won the last meeting, taking down the No. 1-ranked Tar Heels 90-80 in the championship game of the Las Vegas Invitational last year on Nov. 26 at the Orleans Arena. It was UNLV's first win over the nation's top-ranked team in 22 years and the first time a Mountain West school has ever defeated the No. 1 team in both polls.
