Update, post game: UNC has bested Charleston 74-69.
Andrew Goudelock made a good showing for Charleston, scoring 28 points, but, alas, it wasn't enought.
First reporting: One year ago the then No. 9 University of North Carolina basketball team met a tragic 82-79 defeat against the minor league College of Charleston Cougars.
Today, November 28, the now No. 25 UNC will get their rematch, and on home turf, at 5:30 p.m.
The Cougars have won four of their last five games and are led by preseason Southern Conference Player of the Year Andrew Goudelock, who currently ranks 13th nationally averaging 23 points per game.
But the Tar Heels are undefeated 2-0 on their home court this season and have only lost 56-of-350 (.840) all-time matchups contested in the Dean Dome since 1986. North Carolina recently snapped a two-game losing streak with an 80-69 victory over UNC Asheville on November 23, however the Tar Heels dropped 17 spots in this week’s national polls with losses to Minnesota (72-67) and Vanderbilt (72-65) on November 19 and 21.
