Dean Smith part of founding Hall class

Dean Smith might be alone on this. The North Carolina coach can't understand why he's part of the select five to represent the inaugural class of the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame. "It's a big embarrassment to me," said Smith, whose 879 career victories lead Adolph Rupp and Texas Tech coach Bob Knight for the most in Division I history. "Something went wrong there." "I don't know how that happened," he added, half-joking. "But it is certainly an honor." (Raleigh News & Observer)
