TAR HEELS: SHADOW OF THE STILT
The sportswriters were smart enough to recognize the best team when they chose the University of North Carolina as the No. 1 team in the nation. But your magazine clung to Kansas as if in desperate hope.
Well! I hope you will make a little effort to make up for the big mess you have made all season. First, you might begin by looking into all the records Carolina has just broken. I think that might make interesting reading for one paragraph. Confidentially, many of us Southerners have taken just about all we will stand. We are tired of being hidden in the shadow of Kansas and Chamberlain.
I would like to close by saying that we do not find your magazine to be the only one in error. I would also like to say that your magazine has been in our home since its first edition. This letter has been composed to let you know how we honestly feel down here. We are most proud of our team, and we wish for others to read of our greatness.
?The Tar Heels set a national record for consecutive wins in a single season (32), a conference record for rebounds in one game (78 against Furman), and a bookful of campus records.—ED.
TAR HEELS: CATSUP AND PREJUDICE
Against Kansas, the Tar Heels proved that they are second to none. Once again they took to the court and performed with their deadly attack, never once losing their poise, never once giving up when defeat was so near. They withstood the fateful three overtimes with Kansas much better than the thousands here in North Carolina did as we watched the game on TV—and they went those three overtimes without the services of All-America Lennie Rosenbluth They are a team, not a one-man outfit.
In view of the unbelievable record of the Tar Heel team, why have you deliberately neglected them throughout the season? Why have you deliberately refused to give Lennie Rosenbluth the recognition that is due to him? Give them the credit that if long overdue from you.
