North Carolina lost in the NCAA title game to Villanova a season ago and brings back an experienced unit that includes junior guard Joel Berry II, who made four 3-pointers and added 23 points on Friday. The Tar Heels meet Chattanooga for the first time since 1997 when they earned a 30-point victory, and it isn’t likely to be that easy this time around.

The Mocs, who are 0-4 all-time against North Carolina, start five seniors and opened the season with an 82-69 victory at Tennessee on Friday.

Senior forwards Justin Tuoyo and Tre’ McLean each notched double-doubles in the opener as the Mocs scored 48 points in the second half. The 6-10 Tuoyo scored 22 and grabbed 11 rebounds while McLean had 21 and 10, respectively, and senior guard Greg Pryor added 14 points to go along with four assists.

The Tar Heels had a 52-38 edge on the boards in the opener as senior Kennedy Meeks led the way with 15 rebounds to go along with nine points. Senior forward Isaiah Hicks has plenty of experience and he showed it with 16 points in the opener on 7-of-8 from the field, while freshman Tony Bradley made an impressive debut by draining five of his seven shot attempts and grabbing five rebounds.

Chattanooga has knocked off an SEC team in the opener the past two seasons, including a 92-90 overtime triumph over Georgia in 2015.
