It has been 25 years since the 1981-82 North Carolina basketball team won the national championship with a thrilling one-point win over Georgetown. Jimmy Black was the senior point guard and undisputed leader of a Dean Smith-coached Tar Heel team that also included starters James Worthy, Sam Perkins, Matt Doherty, and a freshman named Michael Jordan. This celebration of the Tar Heels’ most famous basketball team is told through Black’s insights and exclusive interviews with dozens of key players and coaches. He takes fans through the entire season, telling dozens of previously unknown stories about the squad and devoting entire chapters to Jordan, Worthy, and Perkins.
