Anniversary of final Big Four Tournament passes quietly

Starting in 1970, the four Atlantic Coast Conference schools from North Carolina gathered in Greensboro for two days of games that didn't count in the league standings. It began as a pre-Christmas event but bounced around the calendar for the remainder of its 11-season run, finally ending up in early December. The 25th anniversary of the final game passed quietly earlier this week, and if Dean Smith would have had his way, North Carolina might never have been involved. (Lexington Dispatch)
