Historian takes readers back to ACC basketball's past
Posted Dec 22, 2011

State, who brought the fast break, the running game and the one-hand shot to the game; Frank McGuire, who brought the ACC and UNC-Chapel Hill their first national titles; Vic Bubas, Bones McKinney, Press Maravich, Lefty Driesell and an up-and-coming kid named Dean Smith.
