 FANS TO RELIVE EXCITING HISTORY OF ACC TOURNAMENT
 WITH RAYCOM'S 'PRESSURE AND PRIDE'
 CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- For one hour, Atlantic Coast Conference fans will cheer again, cry again and hold their breath again as they relive some of the most exciting and controversial moments in ACC tournament history when Raycom presents "Pressure and Pride: Stores of the ACC Tournament."
 The Raycom-produced documentary, with host Marty Brennaman, takes ACC fans back to a time when their favorite team would earn a trip to the NCAA tournament only by winning the nation's premier conference tournament. The show focuses on the tremendous pressure and great amount of pride that led to unforgettable moments in tournament history such as the block/charge controversy that figured prominently in North Carolina's 61-59 semifinal win over Wake Forest in 1957. The win extended the Tar Heels' undefeated record and helped propel them to the NCAA championship.
 Other highlights include the last-second jump ball that led to South Carolina's win over North Carolina in 1971 and the "scoreboard play" in the Tar Heels' 101-100 overtime win against Wake Forest in 1975.
 "Pressure and Pride" includes actual game footage and interviews with the ACC's top coaches such as North Carolina's Dean Smith and Frank McGuire, Duke's Mike Krzyzewski and Vic Bubas, N.C. State's Jim Valvano and Georgia Tech's Bobby Cremins. The show also features a segment on shots that didn't fall and, if they had, would have changed ACC and NCAA history.
 Some of the ACC's best players spring back into action when Brennaman looks at the all-time ACC all-tournament team as chosen by the Atlantic Coast Conference Sportswriters Association. The 10-member team includes North Carolina's Lennie Rosenbluth, Charlie Scott, Larry Miller and Phil Ford; N.C. State's Tom Burleson and David Thompson; Wake Forest's Len Chappel; Duke's Art Heyman; Maryland's Albert King and Virginia's Wally Walker. Burleson and Maryland's Len Elmore reflect on the Woldpack's heart-stopping 103-100 overtime win against the Terrapins that vaulted the Wolfpack to the 1974 NCAA championship.
