North Carolina and UAB have agreed to play a three-year basketball series, beginning with a game this season at the Smith Center.

Larry Gallo, the senior associate athletic director who handles the men’s basketball schedule at UNC, said on Tuesday that dates have not been finalized and that the two schools are still completing contractual details of the series.

Jerod Haase, who spent nine years on Roy Williams’ staff at UNC, left the school in March to become the head coach at UAB. The Blazers and the Tar Heels will meet in Chapel Hill this season, before playing in Birmingham, Ala., during the 2013-14 season.

The teams will return to Chapel Hill in the 2014-15 season. Gallo said he expects UNC's full 2012-13 schedule to be released in early August.
