Roy Ties Dean
Mon Dec 30, 2019

and Dean Smith
are shared on and inside the shrine to the basketball program both have made famous, and with UNC's 70-67 win over Yale on Monday, the two legends now share the same number of victories as head coaches. UNC’s victory was the 879th for Williams, the same number Smith had when he retired in 1997.
