Pete Brennan's shot in '57 Final Four will live on for ages


There’s a case to be argued that Pete Brennan made the most important shot in ACC basketball history. The former UNC star died from cancer in Chapel Hill Friday at the age of 75, but his legacy may last as long as ACC teams contend for national basketball championships. A street-tough but affable 6-foot-5 forward from Brooklyn, it was Brennan and not teammate Lennie Rosenbluth, who hit the first crucial shot in the 1957 Final Four in Kansas City.
