Sneakers: Converse One Star
Year: 1974

The Converse One Star was a one-year deal in 1974, while NC State was back in the ACC Final for the second straight year. They defended their title in '74, defeating Maryland 103-100 in overtime - still the only time either team would top 100 in an ACC final. For McMillen this was his third straight loss in the ACC final, but at least he had a Rhodes Scholar spot to fall back on.
