  • Screens are great, crowds needs to know we are the sixth man and must bring energy all night, recruits need to feel the aura at full decibels!! A bit loungy last night. Let's turn it up every game for 40 minutes.

  • One of the best college basketball experiences you can have. This basketball arena has a wonderful history and legacy in the rafters with names like Jordan, Worthy and Ford. You can sometimes even glimpse players and coaches before the game and this place has updated screens and lights galore to make your game feel more like a show. Check out the UNC Basketball Museum as well right next door which helps you relive all the great moments from seasons past.

  • Best place to watch basketball in the world. Maybe even the best on planet earth. Deffinately the best players in college basketball.

  • Go Tarheels! The Dean Dome is legendary! Overall it’s an amazing place to see college basketball. Cons: Not a great food variety, hard to find parking, facilities aren’t the cleanest and could use updating. All things I can endure to see a perennial national championship contender!

  • This place was terrific! Loved all the banners! The court is so close to the seats...not a bad seat anywhere and we walked the entire facility! Enjoyed looking at all the team pics of previous NC men's basketball teams. Would come back in a heartbeat! Parking was a cinch!
