Lebo's Pirates (6-1) are making their first trip to Chapel Hill on Saturday to play the No. 21 Tar Heels, while Lebo is facing his alma mater for the second time in 15 seasons as a head coach.
Lebo said Thursday it was exciting to return to Chapel Hill and give his players ``the opportunity to play on that stage in that atmosphere.''
Lebo is in his third season leading the Pirates. He played at UNC (7-2) from 1985-89 under Smith.
Williams, now in his 10th season as UNC's coach, was an assistant to Smith during Lebo's first three seasons before taking over at Kansas.
