Bill Chamberlain, UNC's second black recruit, says Dean Smith championed equality


Bill Chamberlain was the second black player that Dean Smith recruited to UNC, and he played for the Tar Heels at a time when he needed the support of a strong coach and a stronger man. Chamberlain could have played college basketball anywhere, but he wanted to play for Smith. "Coach Smith was clearly a dedicated Christian gentleman who my parents loved, which was huge to me," he recalled. (WRAL Sports Fan)
