The Author

Over 50 Years of Research On UNC Basketball 


After accumulating information for most of his life, he realized that he had accumulated a significant amount of information, images, memories, and friends that would be a great asset in creating such a book. 

Since 2005, his extensive research uncovered material that allows him to publish a sports history book that will be the most comprehensive ever produced for a college or professional team.

Ron searched through university and public libraries across the country. Any city where UNC ever played a game was a target for his research.

Through this extensive effort, Ron uncovered every player who ever played in a game for the Tar Heels starting with the first season in 1911. He has uncovered unique photos and tracked down some of the photographers who took them.

Many of these photographers had dozens of other images never before published. While there is an abundance of interesting material and stories about each season, our unique images are a highlight of the book. 

In fact, Ron has found so many unique items we were unable to pack everything into one book. Hence, the reason for five volumes with over 400 pages in each. The first of the five volumes was released in the Summer of 2021. 

Ron’s vision: publish the best and most complete sports book ever published as a tribute to the many individuals who have made Carolina basketball one of the most successful programs in all of sports. It will truly be a one of a kind creation
