Former UNC basketball captain Jim Hudock dies at 67
Tue May 15, 2007
Jim Hudock was a captain on Dean Smith's first North Carolina basketball team in 1961-62, and he exuded the qualities his Hall of Fame coach admired. "He was a tremendous competitor, a good leader and a good student,'' Smith said. Hudock, 67, died Friday in Kinston after a recurrence of cancer. A four-sport letterman at Tunkhannock (Pa.) High, Hudock also was recruited to play college football, but he opted to sign with then-North Carolina coach Frank McGuire.
