Carolina has won 12-straight season opening games and owns a 34-5 record all-time in the first game of the season. The Tar Heels will open the year at home for the 13th-consecutive year when the Falcons come to town.

A balanced attack has been featured thus far in the two exhibition victories for UNC. Six players scored in double figures in both games.

On Tuesday, freshman Allisha Gray scored a team-high 15 points, while Diamond DeShields added 14 points. Xylina McDaniel posted a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.
