NORTH CAROLINA VS. NORTH CAROLINA SOLD OUT

Evidently, there are more than 20,000 people willing to pay to see the professional basketball players from the 2005 NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball National Championship team play the professional basketball players from the 2009 NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball National Championship team.

UNC officials have announced that the Tar Heels' professional alumni men's basketball game is, in fact, sold out. Tickets were $20 each.

The game, scheduled for Sept. 4 at the Smith Center, will feature North Carolina's current NBA and other professional alumni. Proceeds from ticket sales will go to the UNC Lineberger Cancer Center and the UNC Children's Hospital. The alumni game will begin the school's celebration of the 100th year of its basketball program.

Carolina’s NBA players in 2008-09 included Vince Carter (pictured), Raymond Felton, Brendan Haywood, Antawn Jamison, Sean May, Rashad McCants, Jerry Stackhouse, Rasheed Wallace, Jawad Williams, Marvin Williams, Brandan Wright, Wayne Ellington, Danny Green, Tyler Hansbrough and Ty Lawson. All have been invited to play.
