An Elite Look for an Elite Program
With five national championships, 19 Final Fours and a host of legendary coaches and players, North Carolina men’s basketball is already an elite team and brand.
Advent helped the Tar Heels further connect current and future players to that rich history.
The space tells this story through displays of legendary players, high-level finishes, and the show-stopping Jordan wall featuring every model of Air Jordan in Tar Heel blue.
Coach Roy Williams told us that College Basketball “is like shaving. You take a day off and someone notices.” This facility needed to be a living, breathing hub of UNC basketball that embodied both the program’s history and the ‘never quit’ mentality of Roy Williams’ teams.
Legacy meets Future
Jordan Brand Shoe Wall
The centerpiece of the upgraded space is the Jordan Brand Shoe Wall. In this one-of-a-kind display, North Carolina connects a school legend and an iconic brand to audiences interacting with the space.

Before & After
Murals of Carolina greats by decade in player lounges, quotes from former players and coach Roy Williams’ mantras serve to inspire the Tar Heels throughout the space.
When working with such a prestigious program and iconic brand such as Jordan, you really have to be bold. Our design intent was not only to showcase the great success of the Tar Heels and their unique tie to the Jordan legacy, but to do so in an exciting, energetic, and edgy way that speaks to players and recruits.
