Re: What It Was Like Back Then
I moved to Columbia in 1970, and started 4th grade at Rosewood Elementary. I too was blessed to witness that great era, and it was basketball heaven for a kid. We used to argue over who got to be John Roche when we played in the backyards all over Shandon, and at Sims Park.
My dad took me to meet the bus at the Roost when the ACC champs returned home, and it was electric when the team walked off the bus. Those guys were real life heroes to all of us.
