What an awesome experience watching a game in the Dean Smith Center! I just sat there and took it all in...from the crowd, the game, the entire atmosphere! If you get a chance check it out. Bucket list...check!

“The Mecca of College Basketball”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

If you want to experience the best college basketball gameday experience then you have to go to the Deandome. You see and feel the history from the banners in the rafters. All ages can enjoy the experience of a game here. If possible, pay the extra money to go to a UNC-Duke rivalry game.

Here is the place to go watch the UNC TarHeels play basketball. It's big and noisy and a typical college arena.

“Stripe Out the Smith Center”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

Great time watching the Heels beat Pitt. Carolina Blue or white T shirt for every fan so the Dome was 'striped'. Excellent place to watch a basketball game.
