Boasting six national championships and scores of Hall of Fame coaches and players, Carolina Basketball has come a long way from the first season--when the campus newspaper published a notice asking an unknown culprit to return the team's basketball. These pages are packed with little-known stories from the program's earliest days and new insights into its best-loved moments. All the greats are here, from Jack Cobb and the "Blind Bomber" George Glamack to Lennie Rosenbluth, Phil Ford, James Worthy, Michael Jordan, Antawn Jamison, and Tyler Hansbrough. Lucas reveals the meaning of the "Carolina family" and the origins and evolution of Tar Heel traditions that have made North Carolina one of the premier teams in men's college basketball.

These stories are brought to life with more than 175 color and black-and-white photos; a foreword by Hall of Fame coach Dean Smith and an afterword by fellow Hall of Famer Roy Williams; and an appendix of records and statistics. Some 25 sidebars feature first-person recollections from prominent players, including Rosenbluth, Ford, and Jordan; opposing coaches like Lefty Driesell; and famous alumni like Peter Gammons and Alexander Julian.

This is the must-have book for Tar Heel fans and college basketball lovers everywhere.

Book Description:

"If you're the kind of person who organizes your schedule around Tar Heel basketball games, who may skip certain social events to the distress of those close to you--social events that might even include weddings, perhaps even those of your own children or, maybe if the game is a really big one, even your own wedding--then Adam Lucas's wide-ranging history is the perfect book for you."--Will Blythe, author of To Hate Like This Is to Be Happy Forever
