Hubert Davis' Final Four run clinches impressive Final Four milestone
North Carolina coach made history — in more ways than one — when UNC beat Saint Peter’s in the Elite Eight over the weekend.
Davis is now the first person in ACC history to reach the Final Four as a player and coach for his alma mater.

Davis, of course, helped UNC to the Final Four during his junior season in 1991. The Tar Heels were eliminated by Roy Williams’ Kansas Jayhawks, who ultimately lost to Duke in the Final Four.
He averaged 13.3 points while being one of the best shooters in the country as a junior. He nailed 48.9 percent of his 3-point attempts that season.
It’s worth noting that Davis was also part of UNC’s Final Four runs in both 2016 and 2017 as an assistant coach. He served on Roy Williams’ staff from 2012-21.
This is North Carolina’s 21st Final Four appearance in program history, which is the most all-time. UCLA is second all-time at 18 trips to the Final Four.
North Carolina and Duke will tipoff shortly after Villanova-Kansas on Saturday night.
