For the third consecutive year, the Vance-Granville Community College Vanguards men’s basketball team will soon travel to the Dean Smith Center in Chapel Hill to face the University of North Carolina Tar Heels junior varsity team.

The JV game is set for Monday, Feb. 19, at 7:30 p.m.

Henderson-based radio station WIZS 1450 AM will once again provide live coverage of the game starting at approximately 7:15 p.m. Even for those outside the range of the radio station, the broadcast can be streamed online at wizs.com or on a smart phone with the free “TuneIn Radio” app. When WIZS covered the first contest between the two basketball programs in 2016, it was the first time in history that a UNC JV basketball game had been broadcast live on the radio.

The Vanguards will be looking for a repeat performance of last year’s game, a stunning 106-100 upset win for VGCC in Chapel Hill on Jan. 18, 2017.

Admission is free to the UNC JV game. For more information on attending, call the Smith Center at (919) 962-2296.
