CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina says it is resuming its men's basketball series with Kentucky.

UNC said Monday that the two schools will play next season in Chapel Hill. They played for 12 straight seasons but did not meet this year.

Tar Heels coach Roy Williams calls it "a great series for both schools and our fans as well as college basketball fans period."

North Carolina will host the Wildcats on Dec. 14, and will return the trip to Lexington in 2014-15. UNC leads the series 22-13 and has won six of the past nine.
