UNC 1982 Champs | It was one of the greatest moments in basketball history. North Carolina were trailing 62-61 with less than a minute left in the game. But there was no giving up; they got the ball straight back up the floor and passed it to a relatively unknown freshman. With just 17 seconds left, he made a jumper and sank the title-winning shot. Fate was set in motion with that jump. The Mitchell & Ness 1982 Champs Collection celebrates this moment and one of the most well known collegiate sporting teams within the USA - University of North Carolina Tar Heels. The state of North Carolina has a prominent history of producing tar and pitch, which influenced the athletics team name of the 'Tar Heels'. The mascot of a Ram dates back to 1924 when the team manager bought a Ram the annual football game against Virginia Military Institute as good luck - the ram was inspired by past player Jack ""The Battering Ram"" Merrit.
