Dean Smith By The Numbers

Dean Smith will be 82 on Thursday, which is February 28 and a neat juxtaposition of numbers wouldn’t you say? Wait, there is more irony here. Smith won his first NCAA championship as a coach in ’82, which was 31 years ago. And The Dean was born in 1931. Next season will be the 17th since Smith retired – that is the exact number of ACC regular-season championships he won. (Chapelboro.com)
