The Dean Smith Center

The Dean Smith Center is one of the best places in the world to catch college basketball. As the home of the University of North Carolina Tarheels, Dean Smith Center is an ACC hotspot. Opened in 1986 and named after the Tarheels long time coach, this 20,000 seat facility is almost impossible to get into on game night. The Tarheels take on the top teams in the country, facing off with squads like Ohio State, Gonzaga, Boston College, Tennessee, and of course Duke. The rivalry with the Blue Devils has grown over the years, making both UNC basketball and Duke basketball two of the more popular programs around. Of course it doesn’t hurt that both teams have been tough competitors in both the ACC Tournament and regular visitors to the Final Four.

Teams coming into the Dean Smith Center know they’re in for a fight. The Tarheels rarely lose at home and over the years the stadium has been re-configured to give the student body a vocal presence. Since its opening in 1986 the Tarheels have notched three undefeated seasons at home and won over 80% of their games played on their home court.
