Dean Dome To Host Two Preseason Bobcats Games

Posted July 5, 2006

— The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the Dean E. Smith Center will host two NBA preseason games in October featuring former Tar Heels Raymond Felton, Brendan Haywood, Antawn Jamison, Sean May and Marvin Williams.

Felton and May's Charlotte Bobcats are involved in both exhibition games, including an Oct. 17 matchup against Haywood and Jamison's Washington Wizards, and an Oct. 27 game against Williams and the Atlanta Hawks.

Felton, May and Williams were members of the 2005 NCAA champion Tar Heels. Jamison led Carolina to back-to-back Atlantic Coast Conference championships and Final Fours in 1997 and 1998 and was the 1998 National Player of the Year.

Haywood is one of three UNC players to ever record a triple-double in a game and is Carolina's all-time leader in field-goal percentage and blocked shots.

Tickets information is available at the UNC Athletic Box Office located at the Smith Center, by calling
