UNC unveils new locker room complex

The Tar Heels unveiled the brand new Bill Guthridge locker room ahead of the 2016-17 season.

Friday night, UNC opens the doors to the Dean Dome for the first time this season. The Tar Heels’ maiden practice of the 2016-17 campaign (and celebration of the basketball new year), Late Night with Roy, starts at 6:45, but North Carolina couldn't wait until then to show off the newest part of the Smith Center: a brand new locker room.

The complex — named after former coach Bill Guthridge, who passed away last year — includes graphics of past UNC greats from Marcus Paige to Michael Jordan, a new film room and, most impressive, a stylish wall of every Air Jordan ever made. In Carolina blue, of course.

You can see a photo gallery of the shoes (Air Jordan 1-31) here, and a gallery of the complex here. The Tar Heels kick off the season against Tulane on Nov. 11.
