UNC-ECU Basketball Game in the Making?

According to the Fayetteville Observer it is.

The Kinston Free Press is reporting that East Carolina’s basketball team will play at North Carolina on Dec. 15. Officials from ECU and UNC said they could not confirm the information.

The Pirates are coached by Jeff Lebo, who played at North Carolina from 1985-89. Roy Williams was a UNC assistant for three of those seasons, before he left for Kansas in 1988, and a picture of the two coaches standing with Dean Smith during a coaches clinic at Auburn is on display in Lebo’s office.

ECU is 1-48 against in-state ACC schools North Carolina, Duke, N.C. State and Wake Forest, including 0-2 against the Tar Heels. The Pirates lost 79-66 at home in 1953 and 85-65 in the opening round of the 1993 NCAA tournament.

Their lone win against the Big Four came at home against N.C. State in 2007.

In addition to ECU, it would not shock me to see UNC schedule a game versus UNC Greensboro at the Greensboro Coliseum. Roy Williams has made a habit scheduling the teams of former UNC players now in the coaching ranks. Now that Wes Miller is the permanent head coach at UNCG it stands to reason the Spartans will end up on UNC’s schedule. A game against UNC Wilmington is also a possibility since former Tar Heel Buzz Peterson is the head coach there.
