No. 18 North Carolina will have a whiteout at the Dean Dome on Saturday when it hosts No. 11 Kentucky, and the Tar Heels are prepared.
On Friday, the arena was already filled with white t-shirts for the fans:

Not only will the fans be decked out in white, but the team will be sporting new sneakers:
Former Tar Heels star Harrison Barnes is excited about the whiteout:
Good luck to my Tar Heels today as they take on UK at home. Whiteout is gonna be dope— Harrison Barnes (@HBarnes) December 14, 2013
North Carolina has been an up-and-down team this season. It's struggled against lesser teams, but it knocked off then-No. 3 Louisville and then-No. 1 Michigan State.
If the Tar Heels are on top of their game, the latest edition of this rivalry should be a thriller. The whiteout at the Dean Dome will be an awesome scene.
