Bobby Gersten  with his protégé — legendary basketball coach Larry Brown at the UNC-NC State game on January 27, 2018. Bobby was Brown’s basketball coach at Long Beach High School in Long Island, New York. Bobby recruited Brown to Carolina. Brown, an All-American player at UNC, is the only coach in history to win a NCAA (Kansas -1988) and a NBA championship (Detroit – 2004).

The 1967, ’68, and ’69 UNC basketball teams celebrated their 50-year reunion the weekend of January 27, 2018 and were recognized at halftime of the UNC-NC State basketball game. They remain the only teams ever to win three straight ACC regular seasons outright, take home three ACC tournament championships and reach three consecutive Final Fours.
