TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Another piece to the Alabama men's basketball schedule was revealed when the pairings for the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament in the Bahamas over Thanksgiving weekend were announced.

Alabama will open against North Carolina on Nov. 27 (1:30 p.m., ESPN or ESPN2).

The Tar Heels won ACC regular season title and reached the Sweet 16 while compiling a 39-7 record.

Depending on the results, the Crimson Tide will subsequently play either Michigan or Iowa State.

The Nate Oats era will tip off on Nov. 5, when Penn visits Coleman Coliseum.
