Former U.S. Olympians Bobby Jones, Walter Davis and J.R. Reid are scheduled to play in the alumni game. All three have their jerseys honored in the rafters at the Smith Center, as do George Lynch and Eric Montross, who led the 1993 Tar Heels to the national championship. Lynch and Montross will be joined on the floor by Brian Reese, another starter on the '93 champions, and teammates Kevin Salvadori, Matt Wenstrom and Serge Zwikker. Pete Chilcutt and Scott Williams, who went on to win multiple NBA championships with the Houston Rockets and Chicago Bulls, respectively, also are among the list of Tar Heels slated to play.
In addition to the alumni game, the evening will include unique video tributes to the history of Carolina Basketball, interviews with select former Tar Heels, and a special post-game recognition and tribute to legendary Coach Dean Smith.
The alumni game is part of the reunion weekend highlighting the 100th year of Carolina Basketball. All former players, coaches and managers have been invited to the Feb. 13 game against NC State and will attend a reunion dinner following the game.
The alumni game will begin at 8 p.m.
