North Carolina men's basketball looking for opponent after postponement

The North Carolina Tar Heels men's basketball team was supposed to host the No. 18-ranked Virginia Tech Hokies on Tuesday but had that game postponed due to COVID-19 issues impacting the Hokies. 

North Carolina took to Twitter on Monday to look for a replacement: 

As noted by the Associated Press (h/t ESPN), the Tar Heels have played only six home games this season. Coach Roy Williams referred to that as "not a good situation." 

North Carolina generated headlines last week when a home matchup against the Miami Hurricanes was scrapped after a video showing Tar Heels players Day'Ron Sharpe and Armando Bacot partying unmasked around other unmasked individuals went public. UNC players and team managers later apologized for the celebration that occurred after the Tar Heels notched a 91-87 win over the rival Duke Blue Devils on Feb. 6. 

North Carolina fell to 12-7 overall and 7-5 in conference play via a loss to the No. 7-ranked Virginia Cavaliers this past Saturday. The Tar Heels are next scheduled to face the Louisville Cardinals this coming Saturday. 

Zac Wassink is a football and futbol aficionado who is a PFWA member and is probably yelling about Tottenham Hotspur at the moment. Erik Lamela and Eli Manning apologist. Chanted for Matt Harvey to start the ninth inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series at Citi Field. Whoops. You can find him on Twitter at @ZacWassink
