Charlie Scott's name will forever be a part of the history books, as he was the first African-American scholarship athlete at North Carolina. But Scott was much more than just that.
He was fast, dynamic and a game-changer. But of all his spectacular performances as a Tar Heel, few come close to what he did in the 1969 ACC Championship.
And not only was it the ACC title game, it was also against bitter rival Duke.
Point guard Dick Grubar went down in the first half with a season-ending injury, forcing Scott to be the primary ball-handler for Dean Smith's Tar Heels. History says that worked in Carolina's favor.
Duke was leading 43-34 at the half. The Blue Devils continued to hold the lead, pushing it to 11 points with 17:18 to go. Then Charlie Scott happened.
Scott buried the next six field goals for UNC, tying the game at 56 with less than 13 minutes to play. The teams held tight, but Scott eventually proved to be too much for the Blue Devil defense.
He would score 40 points on 17-of-23 shooting from the floor, propelling his squad to an 85-74 victory.
The 1969 ACC Championship victory was just the fourth of 17 tourney titles in North Carolina's history. But Scott's 40 points remain the record for the most by any player in an ACC title game.
It is certainly the greatest game by any Tar Heel in any of their 32 ACC Championship Game appearances.
And it's possibly the best single-game performance in the history of North Carolina.
