The best game ever : how Frank McGuire's '57 Tar Heels beat Wilt and revolutionized college basketball by Adam Lucas( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Best Game Ever is a revealing look at the University of North Carolina Tar Heels' 1956-57 season, one of the most storied in college basketball history. From the first day of practice, when forward Lennie Rosenbluth predicted a winning season, to the final game, a triple-overtime victory over Wilt Chamberlain's legendary Kansas team, the season developed into what many sports historians believe was the start of college basketball hysteria not only on Tobacco Road, but nationwide. The 1956-57 Tar Heels finished a perfect 32-0. The only previous team in Carolina history to achieve perfection was the 1924 team, years before the NCAA Tournament was created"--

One fantastic ride : the inside story of Carolina basketball's 2009 championship season by Adam Lucas( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One Fantastic Ride is a behind-the-scenes portrait of the unforgettable journey to the University of North Carolina's 2009 basketball national championship, the program's fifth NCAA Tournament title. Adam Lucas, Steve Kirschner and Matt Bowers were with the Tar Heels every step of the way, interviewing coaches, players and staff. As the 2008-09 season opened, national pundits widely considered the Tar Heels the hands-down favorite to win the title. But injuries to key players, surprising midseason losses and formidable ACC competition made the ride bumpier than expected. In the crucial last month of the season, however, a veteran team drew on their experience--and subtle adjustments by coaches and players--to achieve the goal they'd set for themselves after their disappointing defeat in the 2008 Final Four. More than just a season-in-the-life of a perennially excellent program, this book captures the crowning achievement of a senior class that exemplified the proud tradition of Carolina Basketball, both on and off the court. They became the most decorated class in UNC Basketball history while enjoying every aspect of their Tar Heel experience. With "Thoughts for the Day" taken directly from Carolina Basketball practice plans and more than 200 color photographs, this book is a unique keepsake for fans everywhere. Full of insights from players and coaches, One Fantastic Ride takes an intimate look at how the Tar Heels pulled it all together to come out on top
Woody Durham : a Tar Heel voice by Woody Durham( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 1971 to his retirement in 2011, Woody Durham was the "Voice of the Tar Heels," the radio play-by-play man for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Our State magazine once said: "To his listeners, he has been a faceless passenger in a car, the audio to a muted television, or the man inside the earplugs. To his listeners, he's what powder blue sounds like." Even in Kenan Stadium or the Dean Smith Center, hundreds of fans listened to the radio at the games so Woody could tell them what was really happening on the field or the court. In this autobiography, Woody takes the reader on a nostalgic stroll down memory lane--from his descriptions of a sleepy Franklin Street in Chapel Hill and the days of football legend ChooChoo Justice to the enormous changes in college sports and how they are covered to his dozens of behind-the-scenes stories about the coaches and players he worked with during his tenure. An appendix offers Woody's thoughts on every football and basketball player he covered who has an honored jersey at UNC. As coauthor Adam Lucas describes in his acknowledgments: "This book is about [Woody's] life, but for many of us, it's also about an era of Tar Heel sports--one that we heard through him." Adam Lucas is the publisher of Tar Heel Monthly and Tar Heels Today and a columnist on TarHeelBlue.com. He is author of six books about Carolina basketball. He and Woody Durham both live in Chapel Hill, N.C
