When word got around that Lefty Driesell had a black recruit all lined up at Davidson, the rest of the college basketball world, at least in the South, quickly discovered Charles Scott. Dean Smith first found out about Scott through UNC radio announcer Bill Currie, while on the bus ride back to Chapel Hill following a 70–69 loss at Virginia on Jan. 15, 1966. (Sports Illustrated)
