The University of North Carolina has been the figurative birthplace of many basketball legends, from the players greats on the court to the coaches stalking the sidelines. The legendary coaches of North Carolina include Frank McGuire, Dean Smith and Roy Williams, all of whom led North Carolina to National Championships. It is with the players, however, that the stature of North Carolina was established: Michael Jordan, Billy Cunningham, James Worthy, Phil Ford, Vince Carter, Rasheed Wallace, Jerry Stackhouse and Kenny Smith among many others.

 

North Carolina's basketball program has been one of the most prominent in the nation over the past half century. Since winning its first national title in 1957, North Carolina has reached milestones and set records. Among these accomplishments are 27 straight NCAA Tournament appearances between 1975 and 2001, the NCAA record. Also, between 1963 and 2001, the Tar Heels did not have a losing season. The University's history of basketball excellence has been given it entry into an exclusive club as only the second program to reach 1900 wins - the other member being the Kentucky Wildcats.

The North Carolina Tar Heels also participate in one of the most heated rivalries in NCAA sports with the Duke Blue Devils. Known as "The Battle of Tobacco Road" or "The Battle of the Blues", the annual meetings between these two schools have given us some of college basketball's defining moments. As of 2007, UNC leads the series with Duke 127-96.
