" Thee Shoot " Michael Jordan knocks down the winning jump shot vs Georgetown...The North Carolina Tar Heels won their second NCAA national championship with a 63–62 victory over the Georgetown Hoyas...1982 National Champions !

ACC Freshman of the Year, North Carolina’s Michael Jordan hits the game-winning jumper to beat Georgetown in the 1982 NCAA Championship game. Jordan made his return to basketball 20 years ago.

Members of UNC's 1957 national championship team: "Still undefeated after a triple-overtime win over Michigan State in the semifinals, the Tar Heels upset Wilt Chamberlain and Kansas, again in triple-overtime, even after Rosenbluth fouled out late in regulation. Despite the Jayhawks’ home-court advantage, it was quiet at the start and quiet at the finish, after Joe Quigg hit two free throws to seal the 54-53 win."

Members of the 1957 UNC team pose with coach Frank McGuire in the team’s locker room in the basement of Reynolds Coliseum, which was then the site of the tournament.


UNC will always be greater than Duke just off of Michael Jordan's legacy alone.
