The North Carolina men's basketball program has won six national championships — guided by legendary coaches like Frank McGuire, Dean Smith, and Roy Williams. It's probably the stable of ultra-talented athletes that the school is best known for producing. Here are our 20 best players in Tar Heels history — listed in chronological order.   The Tar Heel Times Cobb was the first true basketball star at North Carolina. In 1924, he helped the Tar Heels to their first undefeated season. Cobb was part of three Southern Conference championship teams and was North Carolina's first three-time All-American, and the national player of the year in 1926.
