From 72-75… between State, Maryland, UN*, Duke and Virginia… there were NO gimmes…
Every game between those teams was like the ACC Tournament Championship game…
I really miss playing the Twerps in basketball …
Maybe one day, after Dr. Debbie is retired… we both agree to put a game back on the permanent schedule – alternating between Raleigh and College Park…

It’s a whole lot more fun winning than losing, eh?

1983 was awesome with the cardiac Pack. Beat uncheat with Jordan and Virginia with Sampson both twice that season not to mention Huston phi slamma jamma for the Championship. Saw the unx defeat at Reynolds. Sweet. The end of season campus party was legendary.01/20/2018 at 10:51 PM #129167Fastback68Participant
We need some new memories. I want State to Bennie Bolton punch the Canes right in the mouth from the get go. Some wake players were getting chippy because State players were grinding them on defense. Maybe Batts can Django somebody.01/20/2018 at 10:53 PM #129168GreywolfParticipant

They may have had the Phi Slamma Jamma but IIRC we opened and closed the game with a dunk. Houston may have had one dunk if any at all. Their holding the ball and slowing the game down was a gift beyond belief.01/21/2018 at 3:04 AM #129169GreywolfParticipant
Guy Lewis should have known to “dance with the one you brung” and what got Houston to the dance was a high-flying, slamma jamma offense.01/21/2018 at 5:59 AM #129170YogiNCParticipant
Best game I saw was vs Maryland…Lefty with McMillan, O’Brien, Elmore, Lucas,Bodell,and Howard. At that time the teams were, #2 and #3. IMHO Reynolds finest days.
That was the best season EVER in the ACC, bar none. That particular game has been referred to many times by those in the know as the best game of all time. I know I had no fingernails left and I was completely rung out (old washing machine phrase) at the end of it.
As for the Houston game, Guy never saw V’s game plan coming. I was in the Navy stationed down in Charleston at the time. I had shipmates giving me 20 points on that game. I kept telling them V would not let them Phi, Slam, nor Jam and he didn’t. They told me I was crazy. Tuesday morning they all avoided me at every turn. Almost the the most fun day I ever had in the Navy. The most fun day I can’t discuss, LOL.

IIRC he slowed his team down because they were feeling the altitude especially Olajuwon who was sucking oxygen on the sideline. Lewis wanted him for the whole game and was afraid that if he pushed the tempo too much he would lose him. Seems like they pushed the tempo at the beginning of the 2nd half and then shut it down to try and preserve a lead.
I remember the dunks like you do. The commentators had made such a big deal of it leading up to the game that I tried to pay attention like you I think it was two dunks for us and one for them.01/21/2018 at 2:12 PM #129237tractor57Participant
The Pack won 2 dunks to 1 – Guy Lewis said before the game the team with the most dunks wins. He was right. If you haven’t seen the 30 for 30 on that Houston team you should watch – they still believe the game was taken from them. I would also watch the Whittenberg produced 30 for 30 on Valvano.
