James Naismith Award in 1984. Set his personal career high for points in college during his sophomore year with 39 points against Georgia Tech on January 29th, 1983. Set his personal career high for points against Duke on January 22nd, 1983 with 32. The biggest moment with Jordan in Carolina blue and white occurred in the the 1982 NCAA Championship game. North Carolina faced a Patrick Ewing -led Georgetown.
With 15 seconds remaining in the game the ACC Freshman of the Year would hit a 16-foot jumper off a pass from James Worthy. That shot proved to be the difference as UNC prevailed 63-62. Jordan ended the game with 16 points and game-high 9 rebounds. Ultimately, Jordan would leave North Carolina after his Junior season and would go on to be selected third overall in the 1984 NBA Draft after Hakeem Olajuwon and infamously, Sam Bowie. Jordan, as we know, would not only go on to dominate the NBA, but change the face of basketball.
