NORTH CAROLINA TAR HEELS BASKETBALL OVERVIEW

The 2015-2016 season ended in a tragic way for the North Carolina Tar Heels. The Tar Heels were finally back in the National Championship game against Villanova when Kris Jenkins of Villanova shot a 3 pointer as time expired in the game to beat the Tar Heels 77-74. This heartbreaking loss was unexpected, but North Carolina has a rich tradition of winning and being a dominant team in college basketball. This squad led by Roy Williams will definitely be back and hungry to avenge their National Championship loss in 2016.



Tar Heels basketball had its start in 1910 and has continued to get better and better as the year passed and eventually evolved into an elite college program. Under head coach Frank McGuire, North Carolina would capture its first National Championship in 1957 over the Kansas Jayhawks. Previously before McGuire, North Carolina was already an established program winning conference championships and having multiple winning seasons, but finally captured the National Championship. McGuire coached from 1953-1961 and had an overall record of 164-56 before he was forced to resign because of NCAA violations. The next head coaching hire was the possibly the best coach ever hired by the University of North Carolina, Dean Smith. Coach Smith would begin coaching in 1961 and change the perception and expectations of the Tar Heel program forever. Smith had a slow start to his career as he and the Tar Heels didn’t make the National Tournament his first 5 years. But beginning in 1966, the Tar Heels wouldn’t miss the National Tournament once during Smith’s tenure. Smith really elevated the Tar Heel program and is universally recognized as a legendary coach. Smith coached until 1997 and had an overall record of 879-254 with North Carolina and his career also included 2 National Championships (1982, 1993), 11 Final Four Championships, 13 ACC Championships, and 4 National Coach of the Year Awards (1977, 1979, 1982, and 1993), and 9 ACC Coach of the Year Awards. Smith also was the 1976 USA Olympic Basketball team’s head coach where he coached them to a gold medal. Dean Smith changed the Tar Heel program into one of the best in the country and is considered one of the best college basketball coaches ever. The university named the stadium in his honor, Dean E. Smith Center.

After Smith unexpectedly retired in 1997, assistant Bill Guthridge took over as head coach. Guthridge would coach until 2000 and have a decent amount of success with the Tar Heels. Guthridge was 80-28 over his 3 year coaching career, had 2 Final Four appearances, and won Naismith College Coach of the year in 1998. Guthridge retired after the 2000 season. The next Tar Heels head coach was Matt Doherty who coached from 2000-2003. Doherty didn’t have a lot of success as he went 53-43 at North Carolina and after struggling, resigned from North Carolina. Current head coach Roy Williams was the next hire for North Carolina and he began in 2003 after having a lot of success with the University of Kansas. Williams didn’t have the best start in his career at North Carolina, but quickly turned things around in his 2nd year and North Carolina hasn’t looked back since. The success Williams has brought to the program is similar to what Smith did with the program, Williams was once an assistant to Smith. In his career so far with North Carolina, Williams has a 365-108 record and 2 National Championships (2005 and 2009), 4 Final Four appearances, 3 ACC Championships, and has been AP Coach of the Year in 2006. The success that Williams has had will continue on with the North Carolina program that will solidify them as one of the top programs ever.

The rich Tar Heels tradition continually draws in the nation’s best players to play for Roy Williams and the North Carolina program. North Carolina has had some of the best players in college basketball history and many have gone on to be great NBA players. The most notable player to come out of North Carolina is arguably the best player ever, Michael Jordan. But other than Jordan who was the AP Player of the Year in the 1983-1984 season, the Tar Heels have had two other players win that award with Antawn Jamison (1997-1998) and Tyler Hansbrough (2007-2008). Other great players that have played for North Carolina include: James Worthy, Bob McAdoo, Kenny Smith, Rick Fox, Vince Carter, Ty Lawson, Rasheed Wallace, Harrison Barnes, Tyler Zeller, and many more. The great players to come through North Carolina will continue to grow into the future because of the established program they have.

It’s a certainty that North Carolina will come out strong in 2016 because of the way they tragically lost in the National Championship to Villanova. Head coach Roy Williams will have the team hungry for vengeance and for that National Championship title that was taken from them at the final buzzer. This historic program is going after it all and it would be hard to bet against them with the amount of talent and great coaching that the Tar Heel program has.
