The Rise of ACC Basketball
It may come as a surprise to modern fans of the Atlantic Coast Conference, but the organization that gave rise to Michael Jordan and Mike Krzyzewski started life with a football agenda. Historian J. Samuel Walker chronicles the formative two decades of the conference in his new book "ACC Basketball: The Story of the Rivalries, Traditions and Scandals of the First Two Decades of the Atlantic Coast Conference" (UNC Press/2011).
