The University of Texas and North Carolina are finalizing dates for a home-and-home renewal of their series in basketball, which would be the first on-campus meetings between the two national programs since 1994-95.
The Longhorns will play at Chapel Hill during the upcoming season during the week before Christmas and Carolina will play a late-December return game in Austin in 2012. The two national programs have met the past two seasons in "neutral-site" games in Arlington and Greensboro, N.C. Texas has won both to take a 4-2 lead in the series.
Texas will also initiate a 2-game series in 2011 with Temple, beginning with a game in Austin in mid-December. The return game is expected to be played in Philadelphia the following season.--Mike Jones.
