'Late Night' details announced

You know college hoops season is getting close when details of "Late Night" are announced, so here goes:

"Late Night With Roy Williams" -- North Carolina's annual preseason tipoff that usually includes an array of skits and videos by the players, occasional dance moves by the coaches and a blue-white scrimmage -- will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 12 at the Smith Center, the school announced Monday.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and general admission seating is free.

And if you can't make it in person, the event will be streamed online by ESPN3, and portions of the evening could also be featured on ESPNU's 2012-13 season tipoff show, which begins at 9 p.m.
