    1. Light Blue Reign How a City Slicker, a Quiet Kansan, and a Mountain Man Built College Basketball s Longest Lasting Dynasty by Art Chansky Thomas Dunne Books 2009 796.323 Art Chamsky, a newspaper writer in the North Carolina Triangle, has followed Carolina basketball for over thirty years and has served with three different Carolina basketball coaches His perspective on Carolina hoops begins and ends with the coaches, so that angle is played up in his writing My rating 7 10, finished 11 14 14.

    2. This is a nice history of North Carolina basketball going back to the 1950s and giving a good feel of the intensity involved I have liked other similar books better, mostly because the author gets a little gushy about the recent championship teams he is most familiar with For Tar Heels fans this certainly would rate five stars.

    3. I ve read so many books about North Carolina It was good, I learned a few new things that I didn t know before Roy opens Thursday practices to the public This book took me a while to start, but I finished it relatively quickly.

    4. More interesting for the Frank McGuire stuff previously unknown to me than the Dean Smith and Roy Williams stuff already knew most of that history.
