Featherston: What Is Tobacco Road
Posted Feb 11, 2009
Tobacco Road is not so much a geographical location as it is a basketball oasis – the one place in the South where the hardwood sport reigns supreme.
It’s the home of historic programs at Duke, North Carolina, N.C. State and Wake Forest; of legendary coaches such as Eddie Cameron, Everett Case, Vic Bubas, Frank McGuire, Bones McKinney, Dean Smith, Jim Valvano and current Hall of Famers Mike Krzyzewski and Roy Williams; of unforgettable players from Dick Groat to Art Heyman to Charlie Scott to David Thompson to James Worthy to Johnny Dawkins to Danny Ferry to Christian Laettner to Tim Duncan to Shane Battier ... the list is inexhaustible.
