North Carolina Honors Stuart Scott With Jersey Patch, Pregame Tribute

Stuart Scott’s love for his alma mater was unmistakable. Whenever a North Carolina highlight would come on, you could count on him to give it a little extra spice. That personal touch, by the way, is one of the things that makes SportsCenter great. The anchors lay bare their biases.

After all, everyone is from somewhere.

His Tar Heel love helped us connect with him on a deeper level.

Last night, North Carolina paid tribute to their fallen family member. The players wore a patch honoring Scott and the student section held STU signs. Additionally, they yelled “booyah” after each made three-pointer.
