Michael Jordan is quite possibly the greatest basketball player in the history of the sport and he got his start at North Carolina. He is one of the best players in Tar Heel history and he is in Houston to watch the team play in their tenth national title game.

Jordan played in Chapel Hill from 1981-1984 and led them to a national championship in 1982. He is known for his game-winning shot in the championship game over Georgetown.
During his career at North Carolina, Michael Jordan was named to the All-American teams in 1983 and 1984 as well as being named ACC Freshman of the Year in 1982. He won the Naismith and Wooden Player of the Year awards in his junior season and left for the NBA Draft, where he was the third overall player taken.
He knows all about winning championships and the Tar Heels are pretty good about that too. Will Jordan bring some championship juju to NRG Stadium for his former team?
The Tar Heels and Villanova Wildcats are tied at 30 late in the first half.
