The Tar Heels (12-0) have not played an in-state non-conference road game since 1984, before Sylvia Hatchell became head coach. UNC won its only previous meeting with the Bulldogs, 81-65 last season in Chapel Hill.

The senior trio of Italee Lucas, Jessica Breland and Cetera DeGraffenreid leads the Tar Heels in the major statistical categories.
