2023-2024 UNC Basketball Season Outlook

UNC is ranked No. 10 in the country and is currently at the top of the ACC Standings. UNC's odds to win the College Basketball National Championship are +1800, which ranks as the sixth-shortest. 

North Carolina's basketball roster went through significant changes in the offseason, with only four scholarship players from last year still on the team. Second- and third-leading scorers RJ Davis and Armando Bacot return but their supporting cast will consist of a group of transfers and young players. 

The Tar Heels added Stanford’s Harrison Ingram, Notre Dame’s Cormac Ryan, Brown’s Paxson Wojcik, Louisville’s Jae’lyn Withers and West Virginia’s James Okonkwo from the portal and signed 5-star prospect Elliot Cadeau and 4-star prospect Zayden High out of high school.

UNC vs. Duke Basketball Preview

UNC and Duke will face off two times in the regular season: Feb. 3 and March 9. It's always possible that these two teams will meet in the NCAA Tournament in March, as they did in the 2022 Final Four.

Duke is ranked No. 8 in the latest AP Poll after starting 20-5, and Duke basketball odds to win the National Championship this year are +2500. 

We're tracking Duke vs UNC odds for February's game and analyzing what the Tar Heels need to do to win.

Their rivalry began in 1920 and has featured 260 meetings, 143 of which were won by Carolina, although Duke swept the two matchups last season.

2022-2023 UNC Basketball Season Recap

Last season will go down as one of the most disappointing seasons in North Carolina basketball history. 

Coming off a national championship game appearance in 2022 with four starters returning, the Tar Heels entered last year as the No. 1 team in the preseason AP Poll but failed to find their footing, winning only one game against a top-40 opponent and going just 20-13 overall

This snapped their streak of 11 straight NCAA Tournament appearances and resulted in them becoming the first preseason No. 1 team in the expanded tournament era to miss the tournament altogether.
