ACC in the ’70s: Properly introduced to America

As fondly as the early days of Dickie Hemric, Lennie Rosenbluth, Len Chappell, Art Heyman and Larry Miller are remembered, ACC basketball really wasn’t all that to the nation at large in the 1950s and 1960s. All that changed, however, on April 14, 1973, when those most responsible for ACC basketball’s capturing the imagination of the nation at large were the players and coaches of N.C. State and Maryland and a television executive named C.D. Chesley. (Winston-Salem Journal)
