Walter Davis passed away Thursday morning at the age of 69 while visiting family in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The former UNC basketball player is an iconic figure in Tar Heels hoops history. He took the Tar Heels to an ACC championship in 1977, followed by a national title appearance the same year.

His most remembered college moment was the game-tying shot against Duke after a miraculous comeback. The Tar Heels scored 8 points in 17 seconds and went on to win the game in OT.

Daivs, the uncle of current UNC head coach Hubert Davis, also had a lengthy NBA career that saw his number retired with the Phoenix Suns. He’s a 5-time NBA All-Star and was selected No. 5 overall in the 1978 NBA Draft. He was also named the NBA Rookie of the Year in 1978.
