A Common Cause
Former Tar Heels Nate Britt, Brice Johnson and Phil Ford were among those lending a hand at Nolan Smith’s Hoop-a-Thon on Sunday. The Tar Heels joined with Smith, Grayson Allen and Justin Robinson from Duke as well as North Carolina Central coach LeVelle Moton and former Baylor player Quincy Miller to raise money for Teen Cancer America.
Quick Nolan Smith story - this past March, when both Carolina and Duke were in Greenville, South Carolina for the opening rounds of the NCAA Tournament, I spotted Smith playing pick-up basketball with young and old fans on an outdoor court. He was laughing and joking and sharing the court with Carolina and Duke fans alike.
