Series Features Unique Stories with Some of the Biggest Names in ACC Basketball
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The second episode of the Emmy Award-nominated ACC Network syndicated series, “Havoline Kings of the Court,” will begin airing this weekend throughout the month of February. Hosted by former University of Virginia star and 8-year NBA guard, Cory Alexander, the series is syndicated throughout the ACC Network to over 100 television markets.
The second show of 2015 features North Carolina Hall of Famer Charlie Scott. He is one of the best players to ever play in the ACC as he helped the Tar Heels to two ACC Tournament titles and two Final Four appearances. But his success on the court does not begin to tell the story of Charlie Scott. The New York native experienced hardship during a turbulent time in the late-1960s when he was the first African-American scholarship athlete at UNC. Charlie returns to Chapel Hill as he talks about the tough times he suffered through while in college and how his head coach, Dean Smith, fought for him and became a trailblazer.
Nominated for the prestigious Emmy Award for Best Sports Series, “Havoline Kings of the Court” is dedicated to spotlighting the continued tradition of excellence that is Atlantic Coast Conference basketball. The series, three monthly half-hour shows, goes beyond the game to tell the unique story of a player or coach, and how they made a name for themselves in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
