Eric Montross, a former North Carolina basketball star who helped lead the Tar Heels to a national championship in 1993 and played eight seasons in the NBA, died Sunday after a battle with cancer, his family announced. He was 52.
Montross, who was a color commentator on the Tar Heels radio broadcasts, was diagnosed with an undisclosed form of cancer in March. He had been undergoing treatment at the UNC Lineberger Cancer Center.
To know Eric was to be his friend, and the family knows that the ripples from the generous, thoughtful way that he lived his life will continue in the lives of the many people he touched with his deep and sincere kindness, the school said in a statement.
