A look back at 1976 UNC basketball


Dean Smith was the U.S. Olympic basketball coach and four of his players - Walter Davis, Phil Ford, Tommy LaGarde, and Mitch Kupchak - made the squad. Bill Guthridge was one of Smith's assistants. Kupchak and Ford both scored in double figures in delivering the gold back to the U.S., and Davis and LaGarde handled important roles. They legitimately made the squad, which is why the late struggles of the '76 Tar Heels remains so frustrating 39 years later. (Tar Heel Illustrated)
