The North Carolina Tar Heels are the athletic teams of the University of North Carolina. The university belongs to the Atlantic Coast Conference and compete in the NCAA Division I. Tar Heels is the school nickname, and their school mascot was named Rameses. The school’s fight song is "I'm a Tar Heel Born Here Comes Carolina", and the school colors are Carolina blue and White. They are also playing at Dean Smith Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
North Carolina has enjoyed long success as one of the top basketball programs in the country. Overall, the Tar Heels have won five NCAA championships.
The school also claims a national championship in 1924. That year, the team went 26-0 in an era with no official national championship. In the mid-1930s, the school was retroactively awarded a national championship by the Helms Athletic Foundation, an independent organization founded around that time in Los Angeles.
Under coach Frank McGuire, the team won its first NCAA championship in 1957. After McGuire left, legendary coach Dean Smith established the team as a powerhouse in college basketball. While coaching for North Carolina for over thirty years, Smith set the record for the most wins of any men's college basketball head coach, a record broken in 2007 by Bob Knight. Under Smith, the Tar Heels won two national championships and had numerous talented players come through the program. Smith is also credited with coming up with the four corners offense. More recently, the Tar Heels won the national championship in 2005 and 2009 under coach Roy Williams.
The Tar Heels own several impressive streaks in the history of college basketball. They appeared in either the NCAA Tournament or National Invitation Tournament (NIT) every year from 1967 to 2001. This includes 27 straight appearances in the NCAA tourney from 1975 (the first year that competition allowed more than one team from a conference to get a guaranteed bid) to 2001--the longest such streak in tournament history. The Tar Heels also notched 37 straight winning seasons from 1964 to 2001--the second-longest such streak in NCAA history, behind only UCLA's streak of 54 consecutive winning seasons from 1948 to 2002. Presently, the streak of consecutive tournament appearances is the only one that is seriously threatened; as of the 2009 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament by Arizona, which has appeared in 25 straight NCAA Tournaments since 1985. The Kansas Jayhawks have the second-longest active streak, with 20 straight appearances.
From the ACC's inception in 1953 to 2001, the Tar Heels did not finish worse than a tie for fourth place in ACC play. From 1965 onward, they did not finish worse than a tie for third, and from 1965 to 1986 they did not finish worse than a tie for second. Neither of these streaks have been seriously threatened by another ACC team; during this time the ACC's other six charter members finished first at least once and last at least once, and only Clemson failed to win a tournament title.
All of these streaks ended in the 2001–02 season, when the Tar Heels finished 8–20 on the season under coach Matt Doherty. They also finished tied for 7th in conference play, behind Florida State and Clemson--only their second losing conference record ever (the first being in the ACC's inaugural season).
Additionally, the Tar Heels hold an interesting and unique record in terms of a recurrent head-to-head rivalry. Since the first game in 1926 at Chapel Hill, the Tar Heels have won 54 consecutive home games against Clemson, which has never beaten the Tar Heels in Chapel Hill, current as of the 2008-09 season. The 54th consecutive win is an NCAA record. They are also the only program to have never played a Thursday game in the ACC Tournament since the tournament expanded to a four-day format (During the years the conference had seven or eight members, the tournament was played Thursday, Friday and Saturday).
