College Basketball Pioneers in North Carolina


Author(s):
Abstract:
Although college basketball started in North Carolina in 1906, it had to compete with the big sport of football. This began to change in the 1940s with the arrival of two coaches who had never played basketball but who would leave their mark on the sport. They were John McLendon, coach of North Carolina College (now North Carolina Central University) and Everett Case, coach of North Carolina State University.
