Celebrating the new UNC basketball season the Tarheels started the season off honoring legendary sports anchor, Stuart Scott, at last nights Late Night with Roy.
The UNC alumnus, was honored with two great awards on Friday, one being Scott’s induction into the North Carolina Journalism Hall of Fame for his work as a sports reporter. Scott also received the Tarheel Trailblazer award, which recognizes individuals who “paved the way for success in all aspects of the student-athlete experience.”
Retired NBA player and sports analyst Kenny Smith was in attendance along with ESPN’s NBA Countdown host, Sage Steele, to help honor Scott. Paying homage to Scott, Steele wore a Carolina jersey with “S Squared” on the back. “S Squared” was how Scott introduced the two when they hosted SportsCenter together.
Scott was a huge fan of UNC and hosted several Late Night With Roy’s! His tremendous love for sports especially Carolina basketball will never be forgotten.
