College basketball stream: How to watch North Carolina vs. UNC Wilmington

The No. 9 North Carolina Tar Heels travels to the coast, to take on UNC Wilmington Seahawks, for a non-conference, in-state showdown in Wilmington, North Carolina.

There are some pluses for the Seahawks (1-0), including depth. During their 103-83 win over Johnson & Wales, nine players scored seven points or better. However, and unfortunately, Johnson & Wales, a fine Charlotte-based university, is a Division III school. The incoming Tar Heels will surely offer a sturdier challenge at home. 

North Carolina is coming in with an impressive 76-65 home win over Notre Dame, which featured freshman phenom Cole Anthony going for a freshman-school record 34 points with 11 rebounds. With his father—former UNLV and NBA guard Greg Anthony—in attendance, Anthony broke Rashad McCants’ 17-year-old scoring record by hitting 12 of 24 from the field with six triples.

Here’s everything you need to live stream the non-conference matchup between the North Carolina Tar Heels and the UNC Wilmington Seahawks.
