    For Miss Lilly White - The NCAA beginning recognizing championships in 1939. You will see Duke on the list of Champions four (4) times and UNC five (5). The 6th title you refer to is from the 20's and a championship that was awarded by the Helms foundation by a vote a dozen or so years after the fact. Yes, UNC has 6 banners hanging - however, the NCAA only recognizes that they only have 5 titles. Actually UNC has several hundred banners hanging. Still waiting for the 2010 NIT banner to go up.

    Al Featherston was interviewed by Dan Wiederer about the Helms Trophy in the Fayetteville Observer a few years ago. He made some great points regarding its legitimacy as a national title on a par with the NIT and NCAA championships.

    UNC states that they celebrate the 1924 season as a national championship because they were selected like a reputable national organization, just like college football before the BCS. But it's not just like college football back prior to the BCS. For a start, college football championships were determined by a vote of numerous sportswriters around the country. The Helms champion was, as far as Featherston's research can indicate, determined by one man, Bill Schroder, the general manager of the Helms Bakery who sponsored the award.

    The other significant difference between the college football polls and the Helms trophy was that football polls were voted on during and immediately after the season in which they were played. The 1924 Helms championship was awarded in 1942, 18 years after the season was played. Bear in mind that in 1924, Schroder - the man who ultimately awarded the trophy - was a 20-year-old man living in Los Angles and likely never actually saw the Heels play a single game.

    The final point that Featherston makes is that because of the strength of Southern basketball

    (sorry, mistakenly hit the post button)

    The final point that Featherston makes is that because of the strength of Southern basketball and the limited travel in UNC's schedule, it's difficult to say how they really stacked up to the rest of college basketball. The 1924 Tar Heels didn't play a single game outside of the South in a time when the power of college basketball was in the North and Midwest. Throughout the 1920's UNC was 0-10 when playing teams from the North. In the 1930's they were 2-7.

    In short - the 1924 banner is more of an opinion than an accomplishment.
