March Madness magic delivers birthday wish for UNC fan

Posted March 16

— Tar Heels fan Reva Bagwell pressed her luck and was rewarded Thursday.

Bagwell leveraged her birthday to get a meet-and-greet with University of North Carolina junior guard Justin Jackson.

Last year during the NCAA Tournament, Bagwell showed up at a UNC practice in Raleigh bearing a sign that read, "My 18th birthday wish is to meet Marcus Paige." Paige obliged.

So Bagwell figured she'd try again. As the Heels practiced in Greenville, S.C., ahead of their Friday game against Texas Southern (4 p.m., TNT and 99.9 FM The Fan), Bagwell's sign read, "So I've heard this worked before ... My 19th birthday wish is to meet Justin Jackson."

Jackson granted that wish, coming off the court to talk to Bagwell and give her an autograph.

"It was just the best experience," she said. "I saw him, and I was so excited. It was unbelievable. I could not believe it."
