No. 14: George Glamack

Two-time National Player of the Year is more than enough to get a player in this spot of the rankings.


Name: George Glamack

Position: Center

Jersey #: 20

Years: 1938-41

Honors: 1940 and 1941 National Player of the Year; 1940 and 1941 All-America; 1940 and 1941 All-Southern Conference; Jersey No. 20 is retired by UNC.

Notable Stats: 20.6 points per game in 1941; Scored 1,191 career points, the second UNC player to reach 1,000 career points; 16th all-time at UNC for averaging 16.8 points per game for his career; 4th highest single-game scoring record at UNC with 45 points vs. Clemson in 1941.

In Closing: Glamack was said to have had a deadly hook shot with either hand. Nicknamed “The Blind Bomber” because he was so nearsighted he could not really see the basket very well, so he shot the ball according to the lines on the court. Glamack obviously was remarkably effective doing it this way. He led UNC to the Southern Conference title in 1941 and the school’s first NCAA Tournament appearance. His 31 points in an NCAA Tournament game versus Dartmouth was a tournament record until 1951. Also helped lead Carolina to the 1940 Southern Conference championship.
