Coach Banghart announced on the latest episode of The Tar Heel Show Podcast, that the UNC Women’s Basketball Team will hopefully be playing the University of Connecticut Huskies in the 2023/24 season at Mohigan Sun, with the plan to play again in the 2024/25 season in Greensboro. This is yet to be signed, but both schools are doing everything they can to get the game to go ahead.
“Here’s a story, next year we’re picking up UCONN. They called us to play them and they said we’d love to do a neutral site game. I said “In, we’ll sign today, where is the game?”. They said it’s at Mohigan Sun. I said “woah, woah, woah, I don’t know if you know this but I’m from up there, is that 15 or 20 minutes from campus?” That is a home and home.”Coach Banghart speaking on The Tar Heel Show
“We’re happy to play, but we’ll do a neutral site game and play it in Greensboro. So, we will be going to Mohigan Sun next year and they will hopefully be coming to Greensboro the following year.”Coach Banghart speaking on The Tar Heel Show
The UCONN Huskies are coached by Coach Geno Auriemma and are the most successful team in the history of women’s basketball. This will be a huge opportunity for the Tar Heels to play against a star-studded team led by Paige Bueckers.
