Column: Power ranking UNC's six men's basketball national championship teams

It’s tough to compare athletes and teams from different eras. For example, it's difficult to compare LeBron James’ success to Michael Jordan's and even Kareem Adbul-Jabbar's because they played against different types of competition. The same could go to say for UNC’s basketball national championships. Their six titles that are recognized by the NCAA span across 60 years of basketball history.

Beth Miller quietly worked to help the rise of women's athletics for decades

Beth Miller might not be a household name outside of the UNC athletics department, but the long-time administrator was a vital part of the rise of women's athletics in Chapel Hill, as well as one of the few female administrators working for the Tar Heels.  As the University of North Carolina's first Senior Woman Administrator in the athletics department, Miller juggled being head volleyball coach and the department's business administrator before moving into full time administration, before overseeing all Olympic sports for nearly 20 years.
