Asheville=Basketball Mecca

When you think of Asheville, I bet 9 times out of 10 the word "basketball" does not come to mind!

Well, things are changing around these parts!

The UNC-Asheville men's basketball team is getting national recognition. The team (0-1 so far this year) will travel to Knoxville, TN to take on the #10 ranked Volunteers at the University of Tennessee in a regionally televised game at 6:30pm. The team has received other national attention in recent years, such as taking on (but not beating) 2009 National Champions, the North Carolina Tar Heels, two years in a row. Make sure you tune into the Fox Sports South for the UNC-Asheville- Tennessee Game!

The men's basketball team, who play in the Big South conference, play in the Justice Center a 1,100 person arena. You'd better go see the Bulldogs play here soon because the men's and women's basketball teams are scheduled to move into the larger Kimmel Arena in 2010. For tickets, check out the UNC-Asheville athletics website.

The games are fun for the whole family and cheaper than most other sporting events! What a great deal!

Can't make it to Asheville to watch the game this Tuesday at a local pub or Asheville vacation rental? Check out the rest of the Bulldog's schedule and make a game part of one of your Asheville vacations!

Why not make a trip of it and stay at a Carolina Mornings NC mountain cabin rental? We'd love to have you and cheer on the Bulldogs in Asheville, NC!
