Roster Taking Shape for Feb. 12 Reunion Game

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. --- A trio of United States Olympians, three starters from the 1993 national champions and several NBA world champions are among the more than 50 former Tar Heels who have already committed to play in North Carolina's "Celebration of a Century" Basketball Game on February 12th at the Dean E. Smith Center.

Tickets for the alumni game are $10 and are available at TarHeelBlue.com and by calling the ticket office at (919) 962-2296 or 1-800-722-HEEL. More than 17,000 tickets have already been sold.

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.
