Nation's No. 1 visits Palestra

Tuesday, December 04, 2007

No NBA team has ever graced the Palestra floor. But tonight, the ancient arena might be seeing the next best thing. No. 1 North Carolina has three likely NBA first-rounders in its starting lineup and one of the most legendary figures in college basketball history at the helm. And when the Tar Heels (7-0) come to town tonight to take on Penn (2-6), it will be the first No. 1 team to play in the Palestra since 1962. (Daily Pennsylvanian)
