North Carolina has long been a center for great college basketball. A major reason for this came from the creation of the North Carolina Coaching Clinic in 1949. The coaching clinic drew coaches from across the state to learn from the game's best minds. These coaches then used their knowledge in coaching their players. In this article Smith Barrier creates North Carolina's collegiate all-star basketball team. In order to be included on the all-star team players had to be born in North Carolina. A major problem quickly rises, however, when comparing the teams of today with those of the past. Barrier separates basketball history into two eras, with the incorporation of black athletes in the mid-1960s acting as the break between the two eras. Included on the Era I team were players such as Dickie Hemric, Walt Bellamy, and Lou Hudson who played between 1920 and 1964. Era II team members include players such as David Thompson, Phil Ford, Walter Davis, James Worthy, and Michael Jordan. Two coaches are included in Barrier's all-star list: Bones McKinney and Terry Holland.
