The North Carolina basketball team-with its light blue line of All-Americans and championships stretching from one end of the Dean Dome to the other-may be the most storied in college basketball history. But what happened to the players who wore Carolina blue once the cheering stopped in Chapel Hill and they went on with the rest of their lives? North Carolina Tar Heels: Where Have You Gone? answers that question for three dozen of the most interesting players in Tar Heel basketball history. Written by Scott Fowler, a North Carolina graduate himself and now a sports columnist at The Charlotte Observer, the book details the life of a different former Tar Heel player in each chapter. Every chapter is based on an exclusive, in-depth interview with the player featured, as well as interviews with Tar Heel coaches Dean Smith, Bill Guthridge and Roy Williams. Woody Durham, the radio play-by-play voice of the Tar Heels since 1971, contributes a heartfelt foreword to a book that serves both as an alumni guide and a yearbook bulging with extraordinary moments. Featured players include All-Americans like Phil Ford, Billy Cunningham, Joseph Forte, Charles Scott, Larry Miller, Bobby Jones, Bob McAdoo, Mike O'Koren and Eric Montross. Also included are some of the unselfish hustlers who contributed so much - men like Jim Delany, Tommy Kearns, Scott Williams, Dick Grubar and George Lynch. From Lennie Rosenbluth to Julius Peppers, the past 50 years of Tar Heel basketball is unfurled.
