Breaking: North Carolina/Kentucky Basketball Series Cancelled



UNC Senior Associate Athletic Director Larry Gallo confirmed that Kentucky and North Carolina will not play in the 2012-13 regular season. He did express hope of resuming series in 2013-14. The Cats will now no longer play in what was two of the greatest college basketball rivalries, as they will no longer play North Carolina or Indiana. Both schools have 5 National Championships each and the three schools have a combined 18 National Titles.

UK and UNC had met every season since the series was renewed in 2000. The two schools originally played annually from 1959-1977.
