MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - Fresh off a 51-point win on Saturday, the No. 15/14 North Carolina women's basketball team heads to the beach for two games this week at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.

Charleston and Coastal Carolina will precede the Wednesday night matchup with the Gamecocks beginning at 5 p.m.

The Tar Heels closed the first third of the regular season on Saturday with a 100-49 win over Charleston Southern to move to 8-2 on the season.
