Actually yesterday wasn’t in the Dean Dome. They played a throwback game in old Carmichael Auditorium. Wofford didn’t cooperate with the nostalgia though. It was their first game in Carmichael since 1986.
Meanwhile Clemson is 0-59 all-time in Chapel Hill. I watched a little bit of Clemson vs the Poultry last night but I didn’t see the final score (edit: Poultry pulled away in the second half and won by 13 at Clemson). Clemson plays in the Dean Dome January 11. If they can’t win this time they may never win.
Wofford’s next game is at Duke by the way. Back to back road upsets?
UNC’s women stayed in Carmichael instead of moving to the Dome, so it’s remained in use for hoops unlike Barnhill. They also have volleyball, gymnastics and wrestling there. Actually the men’s team did play an NIT game at Carmichael in 2010 because the Dome was booked for something else, but yesterday was the first regular season game in 33 years.
Wofford (7-4 record) is #152 in NET today and #125 in Pomeroy,. Overall SOS is only #215 per Pomeroy (slightly tougher than ours at #226) so it ain’t that bad, yet, but it’ll get a lot tougher Thursday night.
Warren Nolan’s projections still have us winning the SEC regular season at 16-2 and finishing 27-4 overall. Losses at Indiana, at LSU and at Tennessee. Beating Auburn (which is #7 in NET), winning at Florida, beating Kentucky.
You’re probably right but UNC is being quite vague about his injury. “Indefinitely” is the word they’re using now. The Clemson game is almost four weeks away so he would have had to tear or break something to be out that long with a knee, I think.
