The 1974 ACC Tournament was played in Greensboro, North Carolina from March 7-9
Three of the top teams in the country, NC State, Maryland, and North Carolina, all of whom were loaded with future NBA stars, competed in the tournament. While top ranked NC State, led by David Thompson breezed to the final, Maryland, led by John Lucas, Len Elmore, and Tom McMillen defeated North Carolina, led by Bobby Jones, Walter Davis, and Mitch Kupchak in the semifinals by a score of 105-85. That led to one of the great conference finals in NCAA history, in which NC State beat Maryland 103-100 in overtime. The significance of that championship game was that Maryland, considered to be one of the top teams in the nation, did not get to play in the NCAA Tournament, which back then only admitted one team per conference. In large part due to Maryland’s exclusion from the tournament that year, the field was expanded the following year to 32 teams to allow for some at large bids. After defeating Maryland in the memorable 1974 ACC final, NC State went on to win the national championship.

Bob Feller and Satchel Paige
Satchel Paige is often referred to as the “Babe Ruth” of the Negro League. He played for over 20 years on several teams in the Negro League and was widely considered to be the league’s greatest ever pitcher. In 1948, Paige became Major League Baseball’s oldest ever rookie when he signed a contract with the Cleveland Indians. At 42 years of age, he went 6-1 for the Indians and helped led the Tribe to a World Series victory. Satchel Paige continued pitching for several more seasons in the majors, including making All Star Game appearances in 1952 and 1953 as a St. Louis Brown, at the ages of 46 and 47. He even made a brief cameo appearance at age 59 for the Kansas City Athletics in 1965. Satchel Paige was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1971, the first ever inductee from the Negro League.
