Sunday’s championship game in the Hall of Fame Tipoff Tournament is a marquee match up between two of the powers in college basketball. The 24th ranked North Carolina Tar Heels will take on the third-ranked Louisville Cardinals to see who gets the trophy in the early-season tournament.
The defending champion Cardinals come into this one with a 5-0 record and a convincing 71-57 victory over Fairfield. The Cards have gone through their first few games of this year with relative ease, but the Heels will be their toughest test yet.
Or, will they?
North Carolina was stunned earlier this week when they were upset by Belmont, 83-80. They did rebound on Saturday, though, with a 10-point victory over Richmond.
A win over the champs would be just what this Tar Heels team needs to fully regain their confidence back that they lost in that game with Belmont.
