J.R. Smith puts on show at UNC


When J.R. Smith arrived at the Smith Center on Saturday to compete in the World's Greatest Alumni game, he had a game jersey waiting for him -- the black one worn by the "visiting" ACC All Stars. And even after Smith switched to the Carolina Pros team at the request of former North Carolina standout Sean May, Smith figuratively stood out as the black sheep of the Carolina family. But by the end of the night, any hint of boos for the could-have-been Carolina guard had turned to a chorus of oohs and aahs. Smith threw down an amazing arrays of dunks -- 10 in all -- and scored 26 points to lead the Carolina Pros to a 139-126 victory in front of about 10,000 fans. (Durham Herald-Sun)
