UNC pays tribute to Woody Durham before tipoff vs. Syracuse

Durham's son, Wes, was courtside calling the game for Raycom Sports. After his retirement, Durham was diagnosed with Primary Progressive Aphasia, a brain disorder that affects speech.

Maye is on pace to become the sixth Tar Heel to average a double-double in the last 40 years with Brice Johnson (2016), John Henson (2011), Tyler Hansbrough (2008), Sean May (2005) and Antawn Jamison (1998). Durham previously worked at WFMY News 2 as a Sports Director.

Durham who called more than 1,800 broadcasts, retired in 2011. The aggressive halfcourt man-to-man defense Williams had been running for his entire career just wasn't working for this group of Tar Heels and it was time to scrap the famed "22" defense he learned from his mentor, Coach Dean Smith. "He created so many lasting memories for Carolina fans during this time of year", Williams continued.

He is a member of the Stanly County Sports Hall of Fame, going in the class of 1993 with fellow broadcaster, long-time "Voice of the Duke Blue Devils" Bob Harris. Durham won the North Carolina Sportscaster of the Year Award 13 times. Wes Durham is a regular fixture on the ACC Network television broadcasts and the radio voice of the Atlanta Falcons.

"Getting me the ball", the Tar Heels senior forward and resident comedian said. "His influence on me and my career is huge".

The extra rest, particularly for Chiellini, who played less than two minutes, should help benefit Juventus against Tottenham . The first leg ended 2-2 in Turin as Spurs rallied from a bad start, but they can't afford to be complacent in the second leg.

"Woody loved the Tar Heels and players, coaches and fans of all ages loved him right back", Williams said.

"His influence was directly from not just what he did, but visiting with others", Wes said.

Woody Durham signs a basketball for Will Rhodes, who sits with his dad, Richard Rhodes."Woody Durham was a friend of WHKP coming to Hendersonville on numerous occasions to have a meal, enjoy a round of golf and tell us all the untold stories behind the Heels", Rhodes said.

"Woody meant so much to me personally and professionally, and I feel honored to have worked with him and learned from him", said Jones Angell, Durham's successor, in a statement.

Buy Photos The Daily Tar Heel's first mention of Woody Durham came in a October 20, 1959, paper. And, yet in all that, he would return every year to Stanly County and even help us out with liners and promos when we asked. We should all "go where we go and do what we do" and say a prayer for Woody and his family.

Harris said the first time he saw Woody was at the Efird baseball field in 1953 after his father was transfered to the mill.

Regardless of the opponent, the fact that Carolina is still playing is a positive for the team. Outside of that, the Orange had many problems when it came to offense, especially the guard play.

Onward we go. SU has its inaugural success in the ACC Tournament since joining the league in 2013-14, and head coach Jim Boeheim has secured his 37 term with at least 20 victories.

The two were often seen locally as co-masters of ceremonies for the induction ceremonies of the Stanly County Sports Hall of Fame, often providing laughs and smiles for attendees as the two quipped about various aspects of the rivalry.

Durham is survived by Jean, his wife of 54 years; sons Wes and Taylor; and grandchildren Emily and Will.
