UNC's Dean Smith set an NCAA record in his last game at Joel
Thu Mar 15, 2007

Friends and relatives surrounded Smith as he finally reached his car in the private lot near the back door, some offering toasts, all gushing. The sun hit Smith in the face. He put on dark glasses, smiled and gripped the steering wheel.
