ACC'S GREATEST GAMES AND COMEBACKS FEATURED IN 'LUCK'S ACC GREATEST FINISHES' VIDEO

 CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Hearts always skip a beat and fists pump in the air each time ACC fans remember North Carolina's eight-point comeback in 17 seconds against Duke or Ralph Sampson's game-winning jumper in his final home appearance as Virginia comes from behind to beat Maryland. Now, thanks to a video offer presented by Luck's Country Style Foods, these memories come flooding from the mind on to the television screen in "ACC Greatest Finishes," a video featuring some of the greatest comebacks and thrilling upsets in ACC history.
 Produced by Raycom Video Enterprises, a division of Raycom, the nation's leading independent sports programmer, the video features footage from more than 30 of the ACC's most memorable games. Highlights include regular-season classics, tournament thrillers, incredible upsets, buzzer beaters and the "call tells it all," using the original commentary from such sportscasting legends as Billy Packer and Bill Curry. The video is dedicated to Jim Thacker, long-time ACC play-by-play voice who passed away last December.
 Fans can order "ACC Greatest Finishes" by sending five proofs of purchase from any Luck's products plus $6.95 to Luck's ACC Greatest Finishes Video Offer, PO Box 1796, Young America, Minn. 55594-1796. Or, they can look for order forms at grocery stores or in the special Luck's Country Style Foods coupon insert in Sunday, Feb. 21, newspapers.
 The video includes highlights of the 1974 North Carolina/Duke game in Chapel Hill, where Walter Davis sank a 35-foot jumper to cap an eight-point comeback in 17 seconds and send the game into overtime, and N.C. State's 110-103 four-overtime win against Wake Forest in 1989, when the Wolfpack came from three down with two seconds left in regulation to tie the game.
 The ACC's greatest upsets include Maryland's 1982 overtime win against Virginia and Wally Walker's game of a lifetime against North Carolina in the finals of the 1976 ACC tournament, in which sixth-seeded Virginia downed the top-seeded Tar Heels.
 Other highlights include Dennis Scott's last-second shot to lift Georgia Tech to a 76-74 win over North Carolina in 1989 and N.C. State's string of three nail-biting wins in the 1983 ACC tournament.
 "There are certain games that ACC fans always talk about when they reminisce concerning the greatest games in ACC history. We are proud to sponsor a video featuring memories that have become a part of every ACC fan's life," said Darius Luck, plant manager of Luck's, Inc. "Luck's Country Style Foods and the ACC have something very important in common. We both have the most loyal fans out there."
