Chris Collins will face a familiar foe in North Carolina when Northwestern opens play in the 2015 CBE Hall of Fame Classic, according to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports.

The Tar Heels are projected to be one of the top teams in the nation as they return a laundry list of talent from last season including stars Marcus Paige, Justin Jackson and Kennedy Meeks. The matchup will bolster the Wildcats' much-criticized non-conference schedule as it adds a top-tier team (maybe the best in the country) to an otherwise lackluster schedule.

Taking place in Kansas City, Missouri in late November, the four-team tournament also features Missouri and Kansas State.
