The Trivia – Week #1

  1. In what foreign country did Dean Smith coach AND play for a U.S. military team?
  2. How many consecutive free throws did Bob Lewis make during the 1965-66 season?
  3. UNC Men’s Basketball has had more than 50 McDonald’s All-Americans play since 1977. If you took each of the Burger Boys to play at UNC out for a Quarter Pounder at Mickey D’s, how many ounces of beef would be consumed? (Assume each player eats one full sandwich, weighing exactly a quarter pound.)

The Answers – Week #1


  1. Dean coached and played for a U.S. military team in Germany.
  2. Bob Lewis made 39 consecutive free throws during the ’65-’66 season.
  3. The players would have consumed 280 oz. of beef! (70 McDAA’s x 4oz = 280 oz.)
