Dean and K: Legendary Parallels (Part 2)
Wed Dec 10, 2008
Dean Smith replaced Frank McGuire after UNC’s 19-4 ACC regular-season championship in 1961. The ‘61 Tar Heels were on a one-year NCAA probation and, because of that, elected not to participate in the ACC Tournament. But McGuire’s last UNC team did finish No. 5 in the nation. Smith was left with standout guard Larry Brown, forward Jim Hudock, and senior guard Don Walsh. He also inherited freshman Billy Cunningham, McGuire’s last great New York recruit.
