Thad and Mike team up for a special offer

Inside Carolina columnists Thad Williamson and Mike McCracken are teaming up this holiday season to give Inside Carolina readers a special opportunity. While supplies last, purchasers of "Victory on Senior Day" the limited edition print featuring and hand signed by Phil Ford will also receive a copy of Thad's book, "More than a Game."

"I believe the book and print are excellent companion pieces," said McCracken, whose company Tar Heel Moments produces the print. "We have had such a great response thus far to the print, and Thad's book is an absolute joy to read."

"Victory on Senior Day" features Phil Ford in his final game in Carmichael Auditorium – a victory over Duke on the last day of the 1978 regular season. "More Than a Game: Why Carolina Basketball Means So Much to So Many" includes a complete account of that very game, as well as comments from Ford about it.

"Phil Ford's Senior Day was one of the most emotional and memorable days in the history of Tar Heel basketball, and Coach Ford's contributions on the court, the sideline, and behind the scenes are a major reason why Carolina basketball has been and continues to be `More Than a Game'," said Williamson. "It's an honor and a thrill to be involved with this print commemorating that special day, and I hope that both the print and the book bring many warm memories to Carolina fans."

Less than 200 print/book combo packages are left at this time. Orders will be filled on a first come-first served basis. Please visit or call 1-866-596-1978 for more information. Unframed print orders received before Dec. 22 will arrive prior to Christmas.
