UNC is using its equipment truck to deliver donated supplies.
North Carolina coach Larry Fedora said Wednesday that players donated their per diem from their canceled game to help with Hurricane Florence relief.
The money was used to buy supplies and the team is using its equipment truck to stock up and deliver supplies that have been donated.
"Our players wanted to do something," Fedora said.
Other players and staff helped load the truck with donations.
